Pours black with a thin head. Light aroma of sweetie roasted malts. Flavour has a nice smooth sweetness with a roasted malt finish. Very easy to drink and enjoyable

Bottle. Dark brown pour. Aroma of ash, coffee, chocolate. Tiny bit sour, chocolate, roasted malt. Medium bodied, pretty sweet, almost fizzy carbonation. Decent.

Gerbeer (1737) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours black with light tan head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of heavily roasted malts, chalk, and cocoa powder. Definite lactose notes with flavors of malts, sweet watery cocoa, and cola. Light and oily with a fair amount of carbonation. OK.

CapFlu (4501) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2013
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Liquor Plus Douglas. Pouts a lasting, medium frothy beige head atop a deep ruby black body. Nose of fruity coffee and ash. Flavour is rather rich, good chocolate nib notes mid-palate and a creamy roasted finish. Between this Phillips and Parallel 49's concurrent offering I definitely prefer this one. Nice job. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

mcberko (6311) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
650mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of light roasted malts, lactose, and some sweet chocolate. Flavour is quite milky, with loads of lactose dominating, some light roast, and some subtle chocolate. Quite a milky palate, certainly true to style, with a bland milky finish. Decent stuff, just nothing special.

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
A mild stout, no diacetyl, pretty low fruitiness, the hops are fun. Medium body, kind of creamy but a little more dry than I expected. Reminds me of Lighthouse Keepers with a tad more roast. Good, but pretty forgettable.

mjgalvani (48) - West Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Pours a jet black colour with a frothy tan head. Aromas of chocolate malts and heavy cream. Something I can’t quite describe in the aroma makes it smell off to me. Taste and mouthfeel is very milky, also tastes of cocoa and light espresso, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a medium brown foamy head. Aroma is burnt malt, grainy toast, dark roast coffee with creamer, chocolate. Taste starts out on the rich and hearty side, but softens as you drink. Has a smooth, bitter-sweet finish. Medium-bodied, thick and creamy, very tasty.
