On tap at Logan’s, Victoria, BC. Pours black, opaque, with dissipating head. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate. Flavour is roasty dust on top of nutty lager, like two different beers mixed together. Alright, way better than a macro lager, the appearance is the best thing about it.

On tap @ Bottoms. Darkest brown with a faint amber hue, foamy off-white head settles and mostly lasts. Muted aroma of roasted malt. Thin roasty semi-sweet malt taste, some chocolate and a hint of coffee and some sour notes. Average carbonation, weak body, low hopped. Light bitter watery finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

341ml bottle. Very dark colour, filtered, some light gets through. Big, thick head with good lacing. Dark malt and lager yeast aroma. Chocolate malt, grain and a little sour flavour. Body and taste are creamy but a little watery. Overall, a decent balance between a lager and a stout.

Slight hints of chocolate and malt that peak in the aftertaste. Moderately carbonated. Tastes exactly what it says it tastes like in the description, a little bit more flavour would make it appeal to me a bit more.

Pours a dark black color with a brown head that dissipates quickly. Smells of roasted chocolate malts but faintly not overly strong. Taste is a lite bit of chocate a d Munich malt but mainly light coffee taste. A decent introductory dark lager but it could be so much better.

Drank at La Fête Bières & Saveurs de Chambly 2012, on September 2. Dark brown, small head. Aroma of roasted barley, well malted with hints of nuts. Taste slightly raw barley, malted nuts, little aftertaste. It drinks well, that’s it!

6-pack purchased from a BC Liqour Store in Radium, BC on 08/10/2012. Colour: Black, hence the name. Medium grayish creamy head. Nose: Definitely some dark roast coffee, burnt toffee, trace of rubber, candy wrapper. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-bitter, medium-light bitter. What foolish little devil! Revs up to be a heavily roasted bitter blast judging from the nose, but settles down immensely in the mouth and displays shy notes of high percentage cocoa and green vegetables with a metallic and crips lager feel. Excellent for decepting albeit in its own way dissapointing!
