A nice little dark brew. A bit of chocolate malt with a light bittering malt. Well balanced and a good little session brew, but nothing special at all. Light roast, toasted grain malts...thats about it.

473ml can. Dark brown in colour, decent creamy beige cap, decent lacing. Aroma is chocolatey with nut and caramel and light coffee. Taste has caramel sweetness, some nuts, some mild coffee beans and chocolate notes. Finish has some light roasted notes. Light body, maybe a bit thin, average carbonation. Decent and simple brown ale.

gramity (1301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2012
Dark with a light tan head that doesn’t stay. Not much in the nose. Good mouthfeel, with some roast coffee in the finish.

Reimer96 (1072) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours a dark black color with a off white brownish head. Smells or roasted and chocolate malts. Tastes of chocolate and coffee. Very easy drinking beer.

355ml bottle pours almost black in color with a vigorously poured finger of light beige head that leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is roasted grains and coffee with hints of chocolate. Taste is roasted coffee and earthy hop bitterness with a light chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with modest carbonation leaving a nice tingling sensation on the tongue. A quality brew that would have been great except for an undesirable aftertaste as it warmed.

Bendrixian (993) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
500 ml can. very dark brown to light black colour. some roast and chocolate aroma but it has a slight hint of smog or something manufactured as well. some roast on the palate, medium bodied at best, has a certain light sweetness and chocolate. It’s a good guzler but not without it’s faults.

Nof bad.. Pours clear and dark with just a little white head. Aroma is strong of chocolate and coffee. Taste is mild and sweet. Finishes strong with the chocolate.

PictouRx (138) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2012
Sample pack bought, 355ml bottle poured dark dark brown to almost black, medium head, average carbonation. Aroma is chocolate, earthy, musty, all in one, strange. Taste, chocolate, coffee roast dark. Texture is oily, creamy, finish is strait up coffee/chocolate linger. Not bad overall, I like.

Powertrip (998) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
Single can purchased from an LCBO in Ottawa, Ontario on 06/06/2012. Colour: Very dark brown, if not black with low-ish lightly browned head. Nose: Wave after wave of rich milk cocoa is the most redeeming quality, but its not without an odd scent of glue, and a whiff of grandma’s perfume. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Mmmm...no skipping a beat for the milk chocolate, as it comes on immediately in the mouth. A grape-tartness mid palate. Highly roasted malt late and a savory long finish. Sweeter than your average dark but not to the deteriment of quality!
