3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very chocolatey, strong aroma, coffee notes, similar character, actually stronger coffee than anything else, but thin and never really comes together.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours black with light head. Aromas of light roasted malts with maybe a hint of nuttiness. Flavors are similar missing the creaminess that I expected oats would bring. Quite a bit of carbonation. Okay but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Black color with small compact head. Some roasted malt aroma. Strong flavor of roasted malt, dry mouthfeel, traces of coffee; strong bitterness; more roastiness in the end.
Boring monodimensional beer; I’m not saying it’s bad.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the source: surprisingly carbonated. Not much to the aroma. Sulphur and smoke all over it in the mouth. A milky body but a little too fizzy for me. Smooth but with a real bitterness in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Upright. Pours a nearly total black color with a medium beige head. A light nose of roast, some chocolate. A light fruity flavor with more robust roast, light bitter hops, chocolate, ash. Very tasty, hefty for the ABV.
