Pours nice and dark. quite stout like. Nice tight foamy head with good lacing. Smells of roasted coffee, chocolate and citrusy hops.
Roast Malt character is present in nose as well. Tastes sweet and rich then hops kick in to balance out. Medium to light body. was expecting a little more from the appearance. Texture a little thin with some creaminess present. Fizzy. Finish is balanced with nice notes of coffee and citrus with medium length.

Very dark black color. Medium body. Excellent blend of roasted malt and hops. Medium bitterness didn’t upstage the roasted malt!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Black color with small compact brownish head. Strong aroma of roasted malts, coffee, light ashes, light bread. Lean body, soft mouthfeel, off-dry in the front; nice roasted malt flavor, some dark chocolate. Not too ashy; there is a touch of liquorice; a bit dusty in the final; strong bitterness, with a reasonable share of hop resins.
Nice example, well drinkable.

Thanks, Alex! Dark brown, rich chocolatey/fudgey aroma with a splash of coffee. Bittersweet character, lots of bitter chocolate, just a touch of nuttiness and a lingering bitter finish. Really good example.

This beer poured a dark brown with a nice healthy tan head. The aroma was was a roasted,fruity, chocolate concoction. I didn’t get much hop aroma. Taste was a sweet malty into a coffee bitterness the a hop biterness. This beer played well with my senses!

Almost black auburn, nearly opaque. Creamy head the color of bamboo. Aromas of cherries and plums, faint coffe and a wisp of smoke? Flavor is sweet coffee, changing to bitter, finish is slightly grapefruit. Where did the fruit go?! Palate is smooth, but not syrupy, carbonation is just right.
