3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with some nice fine light cream foam. Smells of bread, toasted rye, some graham and a little bit of herbal hops. Taste is biscuit, cocoa, coffee grounds, some soil, itís a dry porter like beer with a little more body and a little less dry. Medium bodied with low carb and a wet finish. Good drinker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341ml bottle pours brown in color with a finger of off-white head that settles quite quickly and leaves only a small amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate with an interesting blend of spice. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with some roasted bitterness followed up with a leafy hop bitterness. This is a very well done brew that is nice and tasty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Single can purchased from Zyn Liqour in Calgary, AB on 12/27/2011. Colour: A stunning dark brown with red hues and creamy off-white head of medium height. Nose: Melting cocoa is dominant, soft plum plays about, roasted red pepper, a dose of malt vinegar and the slightest hint of peanut butter. Absolutely awesome. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Pounds of roasted malt and coffee bean come forward. Soft caramel blankets the edges. Suttle burnt bitterness rounds things out. Fantastic stuff!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a very unique and tasty brew. The pour is a dark amber with a finger of beige head. Alot of lacing on the glass. The nose is has tons of toffee, biscuit and a surprising roasted note. A light winter spice of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and a light hop. The taste is quite similar with a big chocolate note and a great roasted malt, sweet toffee and biscuity malts in the middle. A light hop and light winter style spice. A slight presence of alcohol and a small aftertaste of spices. Overall, a great brew.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark brown with small head. Aroma of roasted malts and sugar. Something else in aroma, hard to place, maybe the molasses. Bitter hops overcome slight sweetness in taste.
