3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ratign #969 - February 11, 2014 - Ok, #tuesdaynightbeers. $4.99 CAD for a 650ml Bomber from Coop.Little bit of tan bubbly foam on a niggardly black brew (is that word acceptable? No? Good.) Lots of cool toasted malt chocolate coffee aromas. Palate is light crisp and full of flavour, but very light-medium bodied. This is sessionable and a killer bad boy brew. Cerveza me up another.

Aroma is floral with fairly strong yeast notes, also bread, clove and straw. Taste is sweet roasty malts, a slight creaminess, and earthy bitterness. Finishes quite smoothly. Appearance is a clear copper /amber with a fluffy pearl head that retains well.

Ambré foncer avec une mousse moyenne marron. L’arôme du malt avec un peu du chocolat. Le goût est du malt et un peu du chocolat avec un amertume léger dans la finale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Sweet aroma of chocolate and dark fruit, definitely malty. Flavour is a mixture of fruits and chocolate, fairly sweet with a bitter aftertaste. A bit odd, but definitely tasty.

Pours deep brown-copper with little head with some lacing in the glass. Malt is present with a touch of a bite from hops. Chocolate and caramel are lurking. Nice mouth feel. Interesting and tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Root beer pour, little bit of white head. Aroma - big and malty, spices, roasted malts, light grains. Taste - slight sweetness, big malt backbone, spices, toasty,really well balanced with lots of flavour. Goes down well after a burrito, which based on the label is exactly what they were going for.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks darker than a beer that would be lighter. It does have a thick brown cap and decent lacing. Dry roasted malts, toasted grains, earth, milk chocolate, old cinnamon - all put together wonderfully. Very tasty as well. Dusty mellow choco, biscuit, possibly cinnamon, mellow roasted malts. Very balanced. Soft and very slightly oily mouthfeel, roasty finish with a hint of hop on the finish. Very enjoyable unlike this oilers game or falling down the stairs and breaking your colostomy bag on a first date.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very off smelling lager yeast that masks any malt or hop smell. Taste is slight chocolate, watery but a little sweet. No hop presence, nothing too notable or redeeming

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear dark brown with a small beige ring of head that fades to pretty much nothing. Aroma is rich malty sweetness, bread crusts, nutty, hints of chocolate and toffee. Flavour is rich sweet darker malt(Munich like), bread crust like melanoidins, roasted malt, toffee, nutty, chocolate, and overall a clean lager profile without any real fruity esters. Really tasty beer.
