Pours a clear dark brown with light head and lacing. No bubbles coming coming up. Taste is sweet malty, chocolate and light coffee and vanilla. Nothing stand out so it’s smooth and sessionable, but maybe boring as well. Depend on what you’re looking for on any given day. Above average but not exceptional.

Rating #938 - January 25, 2014 - $8.49 CAD +dep/tax for 6 355mL cans at Coop on ad - . Amber brown pour with a minimal tan head that fades quickly to a ring. Aroma is toffee, chocolate, vanilla, Strong malty notes predominant, slight roasty bitterness. Light bodied, balanced sweet winter ale that is beyond crushable. Nice.

355 ml can, Calgary, AB, Canada. 6% ABV as per can. Clear copper colour. Somewhat sweet metallic mint aroma. Sweet flavour, some xmas spice. Weaker flavour than I’d hoped for.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Canned: unk 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, it’s 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.

Poured from a 355mL can. Deep mahogany brown colour with nice beige head. Roasted malts, brown sugar, slight hops. Would I buy it again? Probably.

reebtogi (4741) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2012
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.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2012
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!
