첫 맛은 마치 달지않은 맥콜을 마시는듯한 느낌 보리의 향이 확 올라온다. 아로마 마져 콜라같은 그런 느낌. 코로나 같이 엄청 부드럽진 않지만 꽤 부드럽고 스무스하게 넘어간다. 생각 산 맥주인데 매우. 상당히 맛이 좋음. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft in Toronto. Black pour. Thin. Cocoa very evident. Definitely not a stout (bartender tried to say was like Guinness). Not bitter. Enjoyable

Eructoblaster (3888) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2016
On tap at The Works (Ottawa, ON). Pours a black body with brown glints and an average, beige creamy/frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with roasted cereals and coffeeish hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries roasty, herbal, and some chocolate notes. Ends with s decent bitter/roasty finish. Good stuff.

Can LCBO: black beer with a tan head. Nose is chocolate and malt. Chocolate covered plums, toffee, and cream in it’s flavour. Nice medium body with a slick mouthfeel. True to the style and good for a one-off.

Subliminal64 (104) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2016
Another Hop City product, and another favorite. Smells very faintly of malt. Almost a licorice smell. Pours a dark brown with no visible light through it. Head stays to the end. Taste is not overpowering of malt. No booze taste. Decent amount of carbonation. Small bubbles. Little aftertaste. Overall I was so happy with this purchase. Had on draft at The Works in London. Will be looking for this one again. MB The Beer Bearon

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2016
On tap at the Ashburnham Ale House. Looks about right. Mild, pleasant aroma has a little roast, a little toffee. The flavour is surprisingly complex, with some flavours more typical of a stout. Only more restrained. A solid, very flavourful lager.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2016
Almost opaque black color with a copper hue and no visible activity. Creamy light brown 3 finger head lasting around 6 minutes with some average legs. Aromas and flavors of toffee, cocoa, chocolate, nuts, fruits, herbal spices. Good balanced taste of sweet caramel and hints of dark fruits and chocolate, with a slightly bitter roasted earthy coffee feel. Creamy light body with delicate carbonation. Well intensified finish ending with slightly bitter and spicy, dry and smoky, earthy and coffee mouthcoating. Overall : Well flavored but a little thin and missing a bit of freshness. A good accessible "light stout" craft that feels like an Irish red ale.
