Pours black with huge tan coloured head that leaves a nice lace all the way up the glass. Aromas consist of roasted malt, coffee, light noble hops, a clean nose. Flavours consists of rich bitter chocolate that lasts through the finish, medium bitterness which lingers a bit, crisp flavour that is dry on the finish.

Shared with a friend. The beer poured a coca-cola colour with a brown head. Aroma was roasted malt, coffee, and some molasses. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour was well balanced between the coffee roastiness and the molasses sweetness.

Lots of mocha head. Jet black can’t see into it. Smells fimiliar. Smells smoked and like mocha. Taste its a little thick, a littl watery(a tad just to remind you it s a lager)because its a bitter smokey mocha boozy more dark bock/stout tasteing beer. Reminds me of like mocha stout by souther teir and like mocha boozy beers I had b4. Winter time beer its like. You can taste and feel the % some and its really good. Cheer’s.!!!

Metalchopz (3315) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
Shared with PaleAleRider at Pub Italia in Ottawa, ON. Written on front label, packaged SEP 24 12. Pours a dark brown colour with red highlights. The head is big, foamy, beige coloured, long lasting and with dirty lacing. Beautiful roasted malt aromas with notes of dark fruits, coffee and molasses. No alcohol burning at all, not even warming. Goes down refreshing with a silky mouthfeel. Nicely balanced between the roasted malt and hop. Not too powerful, making this a beautiful strong schwarbier that has great drinkability. Was great with the food from Pub Italia. For those who want the flavours of a dark beer, but not the heavy body.
