DuffMan (6646) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
3oz tasting @ Medicine Hat Beer Fest 2001. Dark walnut brown. Aroma is chocolate syrup with underlying roast-- smells very chocolatey. Sweet cocoa and bitter roast combine nicely on the palate, but the profile definitely is SWEET. It lacks the body of DDCs Aphro, but that is an unfair comparison. I must give kudos to a brewer whom Ive crapped on time and again. This is a decent and tasty beverage. Never thought Id say those words about a Minhas brew!

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Picked up a single 22-oz bomber from the Monroe Beverage Mart in Monroe, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with an average tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves some nice lacing. Aroma of roasted dark and chocolate malt, a hint of chocolate, floral hops, and a touch of toffee. Taste is medium bodied, average bitterness with flavors of chocolate malt, some light cocoa powder, and some toffee. Finish has some balanced malt and chocolate aftertaste with a mild bitterness that slowly disappears. A solid chocolate stout overall.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2012 Thirsty Troll Beer Fest. Bottle pours a viscous deep brown/black with a tan head. Aroma is huge chocolate, light roast, and plenty of lactose. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of caramel, marshmallow, and hints of coffee. Overall body is full, relatively sweet, and finishes with some roasted bitterness.

Just as the description says, this is nothing remarkable. The first taste revealed that nasty minhas yeast they use in everything, but subsequent mouthfulls dull it severely. The beers becomes thin in the middle and you really can taste some chocolate and dark malts in there. I got to the counter with this before I knew it said minhas on it.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2011
Pint poured at Craft Beer Market in Calgary, AB. On 09/17/2011. Colour: very dark brown with medium brown head. Nose: dark roast coffee, egg, teriyaki sauce. Taste: medium-light sweet, medium bitter, medium-light sour. Milk chocolate, breakfast blend coffee, marzipan. For Minhas, surprisingly tasty....but it also was my 7th beer of the evening.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
Draft at the Craft Beer Market in Calgary. Pours clear black, with a 1-finger tan head, and solid lacing. Nose is light roast, some sweetness, a bit simple, really, some light cocoa notes as well. Flavours are medium bodied, with moderate roast throughout, not watery, which is a surprise, round and chocolatey and bitter. I never though I would say it, but well done Minhas....
