3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft@Garricks Head Pub, Victoria, Canada. Black beer with a strong head. The aroma has some hops, some smokiness but quite mild. The flavour is malty and roasted with a fair dry finish.
Overall a reasonable mildly malty and roasted beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
An odd, indescribable smell wafts from the glass. Sits in the glass like a black elixir. This came as perhaps one of the most pleasant surprises of my beer sojourn to Vancouver. More than a lager with dark food coloring, this possessed complexity and malty character that made me contemplate its depths. Bravo!
