Erasmus_ro (1270) - Alabama, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, black with a decent-sized, dark latte-colored head. Aroma is very porter-like: Chocolate, quite a bit of dark fruit: dark plums, prune, date. Light salty liquorice and coffee, medium roast. Taste is a lot of coffee with some roast and some dark fruitiness. Light chocolate. Surprisingly light with light carbonation. Could be fuller, but alright. Nothing that special though unfortunately.

radiomgb (2220) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Near black in colour with a very thin and quick to dissipate tan head, no lacing. The aroma is of liquorice, burnt malts, some coffee and dark fruits. The flavour is slighly sweet, more liquorice, some smoke, some chocolate. Warming mouthfeel, medium body, mild carbonation. Finishes long and warm, sweet.

330ml bottle for the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario.
Best before December 17, 2014.

Helsdon (130) - Toronto, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Oh she’s a dark beer, she is. Nearly non-existent tan head (might have been too gentle on the pour.) Nose of sweet maple, raisins and malt. Big taste of both sweetness with a bitterness closely following and then hanging around up in the aftertaste to balance things out. Flavours of burn malt, raisins, some hay. Carbonation is very crisp on the palate. Not a bad beer, but the harshness of the aftertaste is going to reduce points on this one. Edit after 5 minutes... Funny how we can be rather critical. After sipping this beer for a few minutes it smoothed out quite a bit. I’m going to up my score. And mention it has a nice molasses flavour to the aftertaste.

Gethinbeer (2119) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Diolch Joe McPhee. Deep chestnut pour with a large frothy tan head and clinging lace. Rich chocolate malt and toffee aroma. Lovely velvet texture with a chocolate malt, nutty flavour. Nice alcohol kick in the finish.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
330ml bottle from the LCBO. Opaque brown-black with a huge fluffy tan/light brown lasting head. Nice appealing aroma - middling roast, alcohol, prune and fig, somewhat floral. Taste - simple, light on the roast, heavy on the dark fruit, not too tart, a little coffee and booze in the finish - nice. Slick, a little light-bodied, only mildly carbonated, finishes fairly quickly, leaves a nice fruity slightly earthy aftertaste. Nice - I would like a bit more body, but the light carbonation suits me just fine.
