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.

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.

Smell is mostly caramel, beer is highly carbonated with lots of malt, some coffee and a subtle complexity. Very enjoyable, though nothing jaw-dropping.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color and opacity is similar to a porter, but the big carbonation bubbles betray its lager roots.
Pours a big head which disappears quickly. Nice roasted malt aroma.
Flavor is good, the roasted malt overwhelms any subtle flavors this beer may have. Finishes with almost no after taste, but leaves a slight oily like film in mouth.
Will buy again.

On tap at Howard Johnson (by the Commonwealth pool). Very dark pour with a weak tan head that is frothy, but fades quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, molasses. Taste is mild cofeee, chocolate, and molasses. Finish is quite smooth, this beer is quite enjoyable.

Not the best beer I’ve had from this brewery, but still drinkable. Poured a very dark amber colour (like a Coke!) along with an almost brown foamy head. Aroma was a teeny tiny bit of malt matched with some light hopping. Taste was rather more malty and also had some coffee in there as well.

6/6/08 On draught at the Stickey Wicket, Victoria, BC. Aroma is very low with lightly roasted sweet malt dominating. Appearance is dark brown with a tan head. Flavor is roast malt forward with no hops; very simple. Mouthfeel is medium-high bodied with a very low carb texture. Overall, nothing objectionable, but not enough flavor.
