355mL bottle poured brown color with slightly off-white head and some hints of lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and some smoke. Taste is roasted malt sweetness and some smoke and hop bitterness in the finish. A pretty good beer overall.

manuchampions (1243) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
On tap at the Billy Bishop legion in Vancouver. Pours a medium dark brown with decent off white head. Aroma is sweet medium roasted malt, a tad thin. Medium bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel. Taste is smooth and mellow with a bunch of soft malt. Short finish. Reasonable but far less than exciting.

mcberko (10571) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2014 On tap several times, pours a dark brown with a medium beige head. Nose brings out light roasted malt, light smoke, and some toasted notes. Flavour is the same, with a very smooth, drinkable body. Nothing overly exciting, but very easy drinking and enjoyable if nothing else is available. Bottle, sampled at Firefly Fine Wines and Ales, pours light brown. Aroma and flavour of light roasted malts, light toast / cereal, and a slight sweetness. Drinkable.

fiulijn (16931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2010
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Black color, big head. Very nice aroma of roasted malt. Elegant roasted malt flavor, creamy; very dry mouthfeel; but there is also an evident liquorice touch that is out of place. Weak final. Interesting interpretation of the style.

0,3 litr fles gekocht in Ucluelet (Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada). Een 6-pack voor Cad $ 15,20 Maar het is het wel waard een heel lekkere dunkel. Hij is beter dan ik had verwacht.

asheft (2778) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2010
[bottle] Toasty aroma with some dried fruit and a touch of nuts. Almost opaque black with a beige ring and wisps. Slightly chalky flavour that is nutty and with hazelnuts. Sweet and medicinal with herbs and faint vanilla. Light body, moderate carbonation, slightly nutty finish.
