Dark limited head retention. Smells malty as fuck. Liquorice taste, rich but not lingering taste. Nice session I think. Smells caramel like toffee apples. Very drinkable

Bottle. Looks great with a dark body and thick fluffy head. Quite sweet and not very balanced.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear black color with some ruby in it when held up to a light. The head is rather small and khaki in color. The aroma is caramel, brown sugar, and grains. The taste is rather unique with this one. The taste is mostly dark roasted malts with some bitterness up front and ends with some faint chocolate taste but it is rather subdued. Not a huge fan of this beer.

Bottle from Morrisons. Pours mahogany with a tan head. Some pleasant mild roasted malt flavour. Light in body and quite refreshing. I quite enjoyed it.

surprisingly light considering its very dark color. Sweet and flavorful at the front and refreshingly clean at the back end. I like unique, fruitful beers and this is exactly that.

Bottle @ home. Birra marrone, velata, con schiuma beige fine, ma poco persistente. Aroma tostato, di caramello, cacao amaro e caffè in chicchi. Leggera liquirizia. Abboccata, acidula, si ritrovano caramello , tosatura oltre a frutta secca (noce) e caffè. Di nuovo leggera liquirizia. Corposa, buona carbonatazione, poco calda, rotonda, equilibrata ed armonica.

Bottle. Black with thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, fruit esters (grape), and some sweetness. Light body, moderate to heavy sweetness, and very light roasted malt notes. Too sweet.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Other than some roasted malts this one is a very watery wimpy brew that the only thing going for it is you could chug several of them down and still walk a straight line. Had a feeling it was going to be a let down but had to buy one bottle of it just to say I tried it.

On tap at the Don Mills Bier Markt. Pours a red-tinged dark brown with modest-sized light tan head. Aroma has sweet caramel, maple sugar and some toasted graines. Flavour is toast, sweetish caramel, some chocolate and a maple sugar note. Lighter body than I’d expected. Decent enough.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Inky dark brew with tan head, good lacing and head retention. Aroma of roasted grain, burnt toast, vanilla. Taste is sweet malt and vanilla up front transitioning to a bitter dry burnt grain taste. Astringent hops at the end, a pleasant toasted grain taste at the very end. Tasty!
