DuffMan (9497) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle, brought to me by Robbie. Dark brown with a low tan head. Aroma features prominent dark dried fruits, light soy, and a little alcohol. The palate is silky, low in carbo and medium bodied. Flavours of dried figs and dates dominate, with some bitter chocolate and a bit of roast. Fruit acids lighten the finish. Nice.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a deep black with a thick tan head. The nose is awesome. Caramel and cocoa with a bit of soft smoked malt and a touch of saltiness. There is a little bit of plummy fruit character through the middle. Soft sweetness on the palate with some nice fudgey character. A little bit of soft cocoa with a nice light roastiness. Damn tasty beer.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Long dark chocolate malts whip up chocolate chip allusions as well as roasted bread crumbs in a slender and bitter vehicle.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the brown-edged black.
-Even though the finish is balanced out by hop bitterness, you can still stay this brew’s all about the malts.
-This is not as sweet as many NAmerican takes on the style.
-Alcohol was not a bother at all in the flavor profile.

Bottle.
