No retention at all, not even with a fast vigorous pour and no lacing (obviously). Smells of chocolate, caramel and toffee. Tastes of toffee, nuts and caramel. No aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355 ml can from a Fernie sampler twelve-pack, served in a shaker pint glass. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with a light brown, puffy head that leaves streaks of lace. Nose is roasted malt, nuts, and a bit of coffee and cocoa, with mild fruitiness beneath; flavor is quite savory with bitter cocoa, nuts (peanuts in particular), dark roasted grain, and a vaguely steak-with-mushrooms presence. Medium-bodied, and with lingering roasty, nutty notes on the tongue. A delicious, savory beer, fulfilling the "meal in a glass" notion with good balance.

355 ml can poured at home. Pours a brown color with a white head. very nutty and caramel smell. The taste is the same; very strong hazelnut feel. I really like the flavors in this beer. Delicious!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can to 0.5L Heineken glass, beer pours a dark brown/red with a miserable off white top. The aroma carries sesame oil, smoke, soy sauce, burnt food and other oddities. Fortunately the taste is better with chocolate and almond notes, with a dirt aftertaste. Palate wise, this beer is...nothing special. Watery, co2 minimal, no real complexity and an ashtray aftertaste. Overall I wonder what happened...this beer is an oddity.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Bitter in Vancouver. A very dark bronze beer with a pale yellow head. Faintly sweet nose. As to flavour, sweet caramel, slightly nutty about sums it up. Nothing much to see here, folks. 2.6.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a poor nut brown flavour. Sweet on the nose, a little bitter on the intake, and flavour that is far from fully formed.
