[4760-20120914] Cask. Mild grainy chocolate poop aroma. Murky, dark brown body with a quick bubbly head. Lightly roasted grains flavour with a bit of boozy cocoa notes. Medium-full body. Drinkable, a little young. (6/2/7/3/14) 3.2

JoeMcPhee (8530) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2012
Cask. Muddy dark brown pour with a lacy tan head. The aroma is initially quite savoury and a little bit licoricey. Full bodied with even more licorice flavour. There’s enough licorice o actually lend it that odd sort of cooling/savoury sensation that you get when you eat Dutch licorice. A fairly pronounced alcoholic flavour along with a little bit of light clove and some pepper. A fairly assertive bitterness as well. Okay - but it doesn’t really hit the right marks for me.

blankboy (6197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2012
Cask at C’est What Fall Festival of Small Breweries, Sept. 14. Pours a deep murky brown with no head. Mild aroma of dark malt, light hops, alcohol and a hint of chocolate. Slightly watery flavour is malty and hoppy with a boozy finish. Average bodied. Disappointing, I expected better. (Maybe like jercraigs says, it wasn’t ready yet)

2012-09-14. Hazy, very dark brown-black, near headless. 3+ Rubbing alcohol in the aroma, dark malt, light fruit notes. 5+ Flavour is dark malt, bit of fruit, fairly bitter in the finish, muted muddled bitter cocoa, fruit. 6+ Average plus palate, flat. One of the first pours from the cask, I don’t think this one was ready. On cask at C’est What Festival of Small Breweries
