[277-20070422] Tap @ Volo (Toronto, ON). Grainy beery aroma. Clear, deep red brown body with a short-lived foamy off-white head. Grainy flavour has cherry notes, medium booze and a sweet finish. Medium body. A bit heavy for a sunny patio but nice and flavourful.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at C’est What: Deep clear burgundy color lager with a small foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of nice caramel malt with some light roasted malt. Taste is also a nice mix between some caramel malt with lightly sweet roasted malt. Full body with good carbonation and easily drinkable. Well done and easily drinkable with limited complexity.

(Draught) Sampled at Cafe Volo, Toronto. Pours a deep brownish body with a thin, lasting white head. Very malted lager nose. Mildly lactic with minor malt flavours. I am somewhat disappointed with this recipe as its tame compared to its creator...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2006 On tap, Volo. Dark brown in the glass with a sizeable creamy tan head - a really lovely looking pint. Aroma of malt, some spice, and a nice hop accent. Medium bodies mouthfeel; malt taste but not in a sweet way. Rich tasting, yet quite light and quaffable. This is a very well put together beer - no one element jumps out at you, but what is there goes together quite nicely to make one of the best pints you can have in Toronto.

On tap at Caffe Volo. Chocolate-brown colour with ruby tints. Aroma is rich with malt and subtle spice. Flavour is sweet off the top, with some smoky tartness in the middle, and a moderately dry finish. Really quaffable stuff!

Smells of malt and the taste has an interesting border of light sweetness, fills in with hops on the first breath out.
