4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Jet black with a thin white head, strong malty aroma. Tastes much more like a stout than an IPA, just how I like it. Great beer!

2015-02-28. Very dark brown body with a small beige head. 3+ Aroma of sweet caramel, cocoa and leafy green hops. Flavour is similar, leafy green hops over sweetish caramel and cocoa base malt. Smooth average body. Decent but doesn’t knock my socks off. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

650 ml bottle from LCBO Hawkesbury (Ontario) on November 28, 2014. Dark brown, medium head. Chocolate and green hop aroma, spicy notes. The taste is about the same, almost like root beer with hops, light bitterness. Interesting but too unusual for it’s style!

It pours black with a brown head that leaves plenty of lacing. It has a sweet smell combined with roasted aromas. There may be a bit of nuttiness to the aroma combined with spicy pop almost like raisins. There is a combination of citrus with roasted malts that combines to make a fairly bitter finish. It has lively carbonation as well.

Oh, daddy. What a lovely beer. There’s an aroma of boiled lollies, coffee, chocolate and sherbet. The taste is more of the same, with a little more hops s you’d expect. Perhaps a tad short on the palate but otherwise more than pleasant.
