COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made using a combination of high alpha whole British hops like Target & Northern Brewer for bitterness and balanced against roasted chocolate and black barley malts. A rich, complex beer that is still quaffable.

CapFlu (4471) - Victoria, British Columbia, - NOV 3, 2013
Creamy beige head atop a black curtain. Solid roasted malt nose with a molasses sweetness. Nice palate, smooth and chocolate with a slight ashtray finish. This beer does a great job displaying depth while simultaneously hiding the higher ABV. A good example of the style.

GothGargoyle (1132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is cola, sugar, roasted malts. Medium-light bodied, bittersweet on the palate, slightly roasty finish. Flavours are roasted malts, mild liquorice, cola. Not a fan of this one.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Dark brown, sweet with earthy dark sugars, balanced hoppiness and an earthy finish. Good rich porter brew.

mcberko (5998) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma brings out light roasted malt upfront, and some bready notes. Flavour is pretty restrained, with notes of light toasted malt and very mellow cocoa notes. Light-bodied, but at least no off-notes. It’s okay, but leaves a lot to be desired.

fiulijn (14327) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Black color with creamy brownish head. Light aroma of roasted malt. Smooth mouthfeel; the body is lean, not much residual sugars; roasted malt flavor, balanced, not burnt or ashy, with a light milky touch; correct bitterness.
Not exciting but quite good; not exactly imperial, more like a "1˝ Stout".

TimE (3105) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2013
Dark brown color. Smells like an ashtray, dark chocolate but harsh and not good. Sour ashtray shit. Blah. Totally crap.

Ferris (2993) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle - Dark roast coffee and roast malts. Jet black with a thin beige head. Sour and bad. This didn't survive well.

driver76 (40) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Light slightly burnt nose. Nice dark colour but very light airy head. Flavour burnt with a sour sharpness that puts off other flavours. Finishes with lingering sour and bitterness. Not a fan.

MrFecesious (919) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle share taster. Dark brown, light tan cap. Aroma of chocolate, nut, molasses. Taste is slightly sour, while a subtle bitterness. Thin, and forgettable.

sulawang (599) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
Visual: Careful... this one is a gusher, even if you just tilt it briefly past 45°. Pours with deep brown-black with a gigantic long-lasting foamy head, tons of lacing, good retention, some micro bubbly activity along the side of the glass. Nose: roasted burnt malts, coffee and wood. (8)-aromatic strength. Attack: sweet-sour sensation, syrupy-creamy texture Mid-palate: (6)-sweetness, (MAIN) roasted malts, roast coffee, dark chocolate Finish: roasted bitterness, mild sourness, medium hoppy bitter malted finish. Summary: A decent brew for a good price. It even drinks okay when at room temp. (Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)
