Grey Cup 2012. Sample tray. Black, malty & hoppy. Brings out the spice in my lamb burger making it taste like a different meal. Foam is funny look but coats the entire glass.

Not something id rush to try again. Smells a little like candy, fruity and a little roasty. Taste has some goodbody, decent palate. Soft carbonation, on cask at burger bar i think.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
November 25, 2011 - on cask at Burger Bar. Quite dark, deep ruby-black with a solid creamy/foamy tan lasting head. Smells like a roasty mild, a little cola syrup, vaguely leafy/resin bitter. Taste follows, but less cola, more nutshell bitteness, definitely doesnít taste like a mild, itís quite bitter, definitely a black IPA, not sweet. Average body, a little astringent, good lively mouthfeel with a carbonized bitter finish. Decent.

Tap. Murky dark brown. Aroma of burnt malt, citrus hoppiness, some toffee, slightly boozy. Medium body, slick. Burnt sweetness and bitter citrus finish. I still liked it but its boozy and a little rough around the edges.
