Chocolate, raisins and plenty of roast in the nose. Opaque dark brown body is topped by a decent, fine bubbled, tan head that recedes slowly to a lasting cover with some rings on the sides of the glass. Chocolate sweetness and the huge roastiness overwhelm some fruity esters leaving this a bit uni-dimensional. Medium body with pleasant carbonation. Pint glass. Cellar temperature. 1L swingtop bottle (Brewery Creek, Dec-06).

Dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma is oatmeal flakes and some chocolate. Roasted malts and chocolate for flavour. Nice and smooth but rather thin and plain.

Sweet malty, roasty aroma with a hint of hops. Pours a dark brown, nearly solid black with quickly dissipating head. Flavour excellent! Unapologetic cocoa (dark chocolate brownie, I am in complete agreement with Oakes on this one) with perfectly blended roasts of malt, and only a suggestion of hopping to keep things in hand. Slightly limp but thick body, excellent carbonation, and a lingering sharp mouthfeel. I’m so glad it comes in resealable 1L bottles, as I am prepared to enjoy this three nights in a row!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Dark brown with no head or lace. Light roast and some oats. Some chocolate. Bitter and roasty with more notes of cocoa and some nuttiness. Seemed a little lacking in the carbonation department, though.

CapFlu (4501) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2006
(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub on December 9, 2006. Thin, white dissipated head with an opaque body. Nose is somewhat soya sauce and roasted. Flavour is nicely malted with a toffee undertone - though somewhat unidimensional and boring.

Dark brown colour. Fudgey, chocolatey aroma. Sweetish flavour with more fudge and chocolate. Fairly simple. Like a liquified brownie.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2004
Dark black, ruby tinted beer with a thin tan head. No nitro, which is always a bonus. Typical chocolate and coffee aroma, nice mouthfeel. Chocolate flavour dominates, but there is a hint of of the coffee and some cherry fruitiness as well. Roasty bitter finish.
