3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour pint at the Collective. Pours black with a tan cola fizz head. Soft aroma of sweet malts. Chocolate and malt up front. No obvious walnut for me, but I suppose it’s a little nutty late in the palate. Easy drinking and quite tasty.

A little one dimensional but still a very pleasant beer. Lightly dry and nutty with some underlying darker roast and fruitiness. Everything is subtly done."

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark brown color, almost black, with creamy head. Mild aroma of roasted malts. smooth and dry mouthfeel, mild roasted malt flavor, light minty touch, correct bitterness, dry final, also a bit weak; no walnuts, almost no chocolate malt.
Decent beer, but not responding to expectations, and can’t really see the direction here.
