Lagerboy (1326) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
341 ml bottle. Clear deep copper, healthy lasting tan froth. Roasty nutty aroma. Darker smooth milky chocolate malt taste, not too sweet, soft and easy. A bit thin but yummy. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

ljthiessen (511) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle. Clear, dark brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is citrus with some dark fruits. Flavour is malty, some dried fruits with a citrusy finish and a touch of caramel. Pretty highly carbonated. Not bad, but wouldn’t seek this out again.

MunBro (510) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Dark brown pour with a tan head. Sweet for a dunkel, nice roasted malt and burnt wheat flavours. Pretty good! Long live the funk!

thb (707) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Clear, dark brown/dark red, head is gone quickly. Aroma is roast, toast, brown sugar/molasses, chocolate. Sweetness is the main character from start to finish, but not so much to be sticky. One dimensional but pleasant.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Sweet front, but balanced with toast, dark sugars. Med brown. Not refined but not bad.

Masterkush7 (567) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Dark coppery brown pour. Seems fairly clear, light tan coloured head, average size. Nose has dark chcocolate malt, and unsurprisingly, it has that same yeasty signature that all Phillips brews have. Taste is caramelly with cocoa powder, peanut skins, and a nice level of earhty roasty malt. Decent hit of bitterness coming from roast/dark malts at the end. Ends dryly with notes of iron and toasty grains. Average bodied, smooth mouthfeel, somewhat creamy. Pretty basic dunkel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Draught at The Whip Gallery, Vancouver
Dark brown color with red amber shades, small head. Smell of dirty, stale water, more than malt. Dry mouthfeel; dry caramel flavor, light, with an impression of dirty water; low bitterness.
Rather unnecessary.

bulldogops (1108) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
Rating #820 - December 11, 2013 - Beer 11 in the Phillips Snowcase. 5% Very dark pour with a weak tan head that is frothy, but fades quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, peat, funky campfire smoke, molasses. Taste is mild cofeee, chocolate, and molasses with a distinct smoky texture. Finish is quite smooth, this beer is quite enjoyable. Wondrous.

RumRunner101 (807) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2013
Clear, deep brown pour with tan head. Aroma is cocoa, toast, vanilla. Flavour is the same as the nose with toasted malt. Hops provide just enough balance to cut any sweetness. Dry, cocoa-y finish. Okay.
