vadie (1253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2015
Noir avec un col moyen marron. L’arôme du malt torréfié et du chocolat. Assez du corps avec malt torréfié et chocolat, puis une finale legerment amer et très bien équilibré.

Poured from 341mL bottle. Mahogany dark brown with beige head. Lighter-to-medium roast malt. That’s about it. Not bad.

The Great BrewDad Victoria Pub Crawl 2014 - Dark in color, lager like flavors and finish. Good roasty malt flavors. This was a good rendition of a dark lager.

Lagerboy (1963) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
341 ml bottle. Clear deep dark copper, lasting small foamy tan head. Aroma of darker roasted lager malt, chocolate and nuts. Taste is darker toasty lager malt, milk chocolate, a bit nutty with a hint of coffee, faint earthy herbal hop. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Surprisingly nice milder robust flavor with a light clean lager finish makes it: MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

kramer (5914) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Tap, brewery. Nice clear dark brown body with a small foamy off-white head. Great chocolate and roasted malt nose with some sweet licorice and caramel. The flavor is a bit thin and husky, but there’s some nice chocolate and light roastiness. Very clean finish with licorice and light roast coffee. Clean crisp mouthfeel,fine fizzy carbonation. Nice light hoppiness on the back end. Really nice easy drinking beer. Came across much like a Schwarzbier.

Moxen (5) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013 does not count
No matter what time of year it is this is one dark lager that I don’t mind having a pint of. The coffee chocolate start with a smokey finish is always great. A great beer for all seasons!
