Itís nothing special. Pours a dark brown, taste is malty yet bland. Nothing to truly distinguish this beer from the rest. Iíd take a Guinness stout over this any day.

From a bottle. Aroma is roasty but comes across mild and thin. Taste follows that theme - a surprisingly well-balanced taste comes in with roasted malts and a little sugar sweetness, but the taste leaves almost instantly and makes it feel thin and bland. It was enjoyable, but you had to keep going back frequently to keep any ongoing taste. Maybe thatís the intent?

Black in color with little white head. Smells and tastes like black liquorish. Has a slightly similar end flavor of a Guinness Stout, but not as good as that.

cards04 (2509) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 20, 2013
Nothing special about this...tastes like a golden lager with a touch of dark malts on the finish. Some sweet fruity and grainy aromas and flavours, otherwise nothing special.

Reimer96 (1731) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Pours a clear dark brown with a brown head. Aroma is dominated by roasted malts, coffee and a faint sweetness follow. Taste is good gulp of roasted malts, bitter cocoa, bad coffee and then transitions into a dry finish. Medium-light body and not much going on in this one with a terribl astringent taste on the finish.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2013
A - Pours an opaque black body with 1.5 fingers of tan head that sinks into a cap of micro bubbles. S - Earthy yeast, wet cardboard, copper, sweet toasted grain. T - Dark malts, grassy hops, light molasses, spicy bite, hints of fruit, raisins, old coffee, finishes dry some spice. M - Light to medium body, moderate carbonation. Better than I expected. Easily sessionable. Alot of people will probably hate on this because its from Guinness but itís actually not too bad for style. Serving type: bottle 10-18-2011

Spab (3052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a very dark brown with smallish tan head. Aroma is roasted cereal grains with hints of coffee. Flavour is burnt cereal grains with light coffee and very faint licorice notes - a little watery. Body is on the thin side. Pretty forgettable.

Several bottle samples at the LCBO on WIlson as I explained what the term and style was to the friendly rep they sent out. Its black without much head, or unfortunately much taste either. Itís not up to the style. Better than the stout they serve here.A bit thin and overcarbonated.
