Draught at Volo, Toronto
Black color; almost no head. The aroma is mild, some roasted malt, but also some apple, therefore the fermentation process should be tuned up. Good body strength, round, with good dark caramel flavor, some chocolate, medium-strong bitterness.
Rough but pleasant.

Cask at Volo. First of all - great name. It appeals to my inner chemist. Deep black with a tight creamy amber/brown head. The aroma is soft and resiny. A light pine and woody hop aroma over some soft cocoa. A bit of roast and some char as well. Assertively hopped with a nice grey bitterness on the back. Sticky sort of pine resin on the palate along with some nice cocoa accentuating the bitterness. It’s got a fantastic mouthfeel - soft carbonation and a silky smooth palate. Rich and creamy that is then cut by the bitterness. Nice stuff - to another hundred batches!

2012-01-19. Black body with a nice foamy tan head. Interesting flavour, pleasant bitterness, interesting hop profile, leafy with interesting malt character, dusty notes, muted fruit, toasty English malt undertones. 7+ Nice leafy green hop aroma, mild citrus and fruit undertones. Some roast comes out as it warms. Smooth average bodied plate. Nice, interesting melange of flavours. Cask at Volo, Toronto

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
On tap at Bar Volo, pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, piney hops, and some citrusy notes - nice and roasted. Flavour is a wonderful balance of roasted malt and piney hops, with a fairly astringent finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Wonderful stuff.

[4254-20120119] Cask. Candy evergreen roast hops aroma. Black body with a medium-lasting foamy light tan head. Burnt breadcrumbs and roasted leaves flavour has a long leafy aftertaste. Full body. Super tasty, drinkable. (7/4-/8/4/16) 3.9

Aroma very fresh, clean and crisp. Neat hop with feel of soft mango puree, herbal hops with gentle tart darkness. 8-
Appearance brownish-black with large creamy head. Rings of lace. Handsome brew. 4+
Flavor and Palate : medium light bodied. Leafy green hop character. Mid accented by woody tartness blended with hints of bubble gum and rose. Leafy bitter end with dry hop sides.

Draft at Volo. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size semi-lasting frothy tan head. Good lacing. Nice aroma with lots of green leafy hops, some fruit, a hint of coffee and backed by light roasted malt. Big hoppy flavour, lots of leafy hops along with light roasted malt, some coffee, fruit and a big bitter finish. Average to medium bodied, almost creamy mouthfeel. There are too many Black IPAs these days and more that I dislike then like, but this is great stuff, I loved it. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.
