This dark, hoppy lager is so light bodied and crisp, you’ll never see it coming.

Dark brown in colour, deep red highlights. Big creamy beige head, big lace rings. Hoppy nose, big citrus. Roasted malts in the mouth, earthy, bit of dark chocolate. Some late bitterness, a little black coffee, pine and earth aftertaste. Light body, carbonation is soft. A nice hoppy black lager that drinks very easily.

Marron foncer avec innée petite mousse beige. L’arôme du malt torréfié et houblon. Le goût est d’abord du malt torréfié puis un amertume moyenne et constant. Carbonisation moyenne/haut.

Bomber. Pours clear brown with an airy light tan cap that settles to a skiff. Aroma of pine, woodiness, coffee, wet leaves. Taste is bitter with a bit of sweet. Dry mouthfeel from a medium carbonation.

Poured from the tap. Medium dark brown with off white head. Aroma of mild roasted malt, nuts and hops. Taste is heavy hops with the other notes underneath. Good medium body, light creamy texture.

Draught at the brewery
Dark mahogany color with small creamy head. Mild aroma of dark caramel and nuts. Dry mouthfeel, flavor of dark caramel, roasted nuts, light cereals, light chocolate. Fairly strong bitterness, there is some hop quality although it gets hidden in these beers; hint of coffee in the final.
Balanced, lean, not ashy, interesting.

Thanks to Reimer96 for this. Pours dark with frothy off white head and good lacing. Aroma is lightly roasted malts with a small soapy in the nose. Taste is light body, light roast and light pine hops. Nice easy drinking, not overpowering.

Lagerboy (1070) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2013
Bomber. Clear deep dark cola copper, big lasting frothy tan head. Sweet dark roasted malt, floral aroma. Taste is sweet toasty malts with a mild floral hop bitterness, some citrus, spice and light caramel. Lively carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Sweetens a bit too much as it warms.

andrewturba (920) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
Pours a clear dark brown with an average sized tan head that leaves some lace on the glass. Aroma is citrus, crisp roasted malts, and maybe some faint noble hops. Flavour is crisp roasted malt, resin, grapefruit, coffee notes and lightly spicy.

Reimer96 (1064) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
Pours a clear dark brown/black with a nice frothy light brown head with some nice lace. Aroma of citrus hops, roasted malts, orange peel and fruity esters. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, grapefruit, citrus and almost some bitter burntness on the finish. Excellent cascadian lager that clean and crisp in the finish and has a great balance of hops to malts.

Roast and a nice shwartzbier that has a reasonable amount of hops. I had to look at this as a lager and not as the typical black ipa, which it would be ranked below the average mostly on palate as well as hops. Thanks Duffman.
