2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured a clear medium brown with a small fizzy off-white head that dissipated rapidly after the pour and had poor lacing. The aroma was of light toasted caramel malts, a light resin hop and a sweet doughy yeast with a slight hint of coffee. It tasted very mild with a slight sweetness and a hint of caramel at first then became slightly bitter with a strong coffee flavor and had a slight hoppy presence at the finish. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall I would say this brew is just OK, definitely nothing special.

Deep brown color. Malty yet crisp and hoppy brown. More on the hoppy and crisp side of brown, as you would expect from diamond knot. Refreshing and crisp for a brown. Excellent brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Craft Beer Market Vancouver, pours a murky brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted nuts, a little coffee and slight cocoa. Flavour brings out toasted hazelnuts, a little coffee and slight cocoa. Quite flavourful and really well-balanced. Much better than the average rating would suggest. Good stuff.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Take a look at this one’s rates, it has sour/infection issues. That said, it isn’t so horrendous if you are unaware of such things. Unfiltered red--orange body. Monstrous steady infected head. I gave up after a few sips. Just off, very disappointing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a very thick head. Some odd bready notes to the nose, which I find odd. Taste is awfully malty and grainy, and is slightly harsh on the palate.
