3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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....
