Sample at SBWF. Fruity and hoppy smell and taste with a dark maltbase. Easy to drink, nice that the roasted malts doesn’t take over.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle.
Pours a dark mahogany with a one finger tan head that leaves big rings on the glass.
Aroma is roasty with hints of bread, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and caramel.
Taste is a medium bitter with slightly roasted, bitter aftertaste.
Low-medium body with a medium carbonation. Clean mouth feeling with a good amount on bubbly carbonation to keep it light and refreshing.
Very nice brew from the Monkey! Will buy again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer pours a black color with mahogany around the edges. Nice tan head, one finger. Aroma is roasty with hints of dark fruit. Slight chocolate, along with a hoppy leafy note to it. Bit of a sweet brown sugar smell as well. Sligthly bitter hoppiness in the taste. Leads with roasted notes, malty finish. Hops tied into the middle. Decent flavor. Not quite as complex as the nose. Nice lacing down the glass.

Great beer but a easy session beer as well. Also surprisingly available at many "The Beer Store" locations in Ontario. For those outside of Ontario "The Beer Store" generally sells many crap water down beers.Keep it up Flying Monkeys!!
