vadie (664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2014
L’arôme de malt torréfié avec un peu de houblon amer. Le goût ressemble l’arôme. Assez facile à boire pour un CDA, même à chaud. Pas mal!

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Red-tinged med brown. The aroma is malty, mostly nutty, rather like a rich, strongish brown ale. Fairly big body, malty, woody, nutty palate with a touch of earthy bitterness. Not a bad beer, actually, just think of it as a nice brown ale.

Brown pour with a beige head. Flavour is roasted malt with piney hop bitterness. Loads of coffee flavour. Okay.

Mouthfeel is medium with coffee/espresso, chocolate malt, and earthy roast dominating the palate. Additional notes of pine and a very muted bitterness.

solidfunk (3854) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Some hops, piney style. Some sour malt in finish. Lacing good, clear dark brown with good head. Creamy texture. Ok, but nothing too hardcore. English take on BIPA. On tap at brewpub.
