AGAquino (658) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
From notes, at Bar Volo. Pours a dark brown colours with a nice tan head. Aroma is biscuit malts. Flavour of herbal hop bitter and noticeable sweet malts. Chocolate notes as well and a nice lingering aftertaste.

Spab (2143) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2012
On cask at Volo. Pours a dark brown with decent-sized off-white head. Aroma is lightly roasty, mild caramel malt and modest citric hops. Flavour roasty and hoppy with decent toffee maltiness. Mellow carbonation. Unique and interesting - almost like a restrained, sessionable black IPA.

solidfunk (3016) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Smells slighlty malty. Taste has some coffee bitter, a little nuttiness. Pour brownish red. Hand pulled so carbonation is low. Not much head or lacing. Very mild beer.

BreWedge (259) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
On cask @ Bar Volo TO. Pours a near opaque brown with a patchy off-white head. Aroma is like banana bread (wow)!! Smells like...awesomeness. Taste is subtly sweet, some bread/yeast, mild bitterness, and some alcohol. Mouthfeel is creamy and extremely smooth with a very short and gentle bitter finish. Very unique brew with an amazing aroma but the taste doesn't live up to the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Lubiere (9440) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
A dark reddish brown ale with a thin brown head. In aroma, a rather vinous malt with fruity esters, quasi Belgian qualities, burned caramel, very nice. In mouth, a smooth lightly peated malt, licorice and sweet fruity esters.

mcberko (5372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
On tap at Bar Volo, pours a super dark mahogany / dark brown / black with a small tan head. Aroma is like that the Fermium black IPA, with loads of roasted malt and resinous hops. Flavour is nothing like a traditional ESB and more like a black IPA with an English malt bill, with notes of English roasted malt, bready rye notes, and substantial piney hops. Full-flavoured and creamy on the mouthfeel. Excellent stuff.

Radek Kliber (6324) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 26, 2011
On cask at Volo
Aroma sweet aromatic leafy hop hints. Pleasant rich yet mild. Finish of malty sweetness.7-
Appearance pours quiet dark, murky inside. Fine ornamental lace. Beige creamy top.4+
Flavor and Palate : medium bodied with soft texture. Hint of sweet olive, wood followed by lemon grass , hops and brown sugar. Smooth soft finish. Good session ale.

swoopjones (5336) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Cask Days 2011, I think i now get this concept. In my notes i didnt feel there were too many ESB charcteristics here, A black ESB mixed with Run DMC. Seems more roasty porterish, Nice roast, mild bitterness. Interesting beer

RayOhm (474) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2011
ive never heard of a black ESB before, but this seems like it fit the bill perfectly. chocolate and roast character with a nice amount of hoppy bitterness and a lightish mouthfeel. very good
