3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a wet appearance with a deep brown-black color with a deep brown hue with a good-sized creamy tan head with average retention, but good cling and lacing. It had a roasty cocoa aroma with notes of chocolate and a grainy, earthy hops balance, along with some yeast and barley. The taste was mostly cocoa and sweet with some more typical chocolate tones, along with a light grainy bitterness. It had a wet and watery body with a medium-thick mouthfeel and a creamy feel with low to average carbonation.

LCBO score. Sugared bitter chocolate. I thought it would thicker. Drinkable but 500 ml is something to be shared.

(Bottle, 0.55 l - BBE Dec 14 , at William K Annankatu, 20140117) The beer poured black. Its head was small and lightly brown. Aroma had chocolate and burnt malts. Flavours were chocolate, sweetness, toasted malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had sweetness and bitterness. A very sweet and chocolate flavoured brew that was too excessive for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
550ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a 2 finger beige head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains and chocolate. Taste is a roasted grain and herbal hop bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A fairly decent brew for the style.
