Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with mahogany highlights. Dark malt, slightly sweet, light roast, okay.

mcberko (15012) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
On tap at Canoe, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out a good balance of roasted malt and piney hops. Flavour is quite smooth, with notes of coffee, dark cocoa and a touch of piney hops. Smooth and quite flavourful. Really nice stuff.

Vladivostok (455) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Serviceable porter type ale. Very dark with a tan head. Burnt flavours are pretty much as one might expect and like all the best porters, has no flavour gap between the initial impression and the aftertaste. Yeah, OK.

fiulijn (19637) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014
Draught at the brewpub, 5.5% ABV
Dark color, near black, with beige compact head. Mild roasted malt aroma, a bit milky and buttery. Quite dry mouthfeel, somehow smooth; accent on the roasted malt, light acidity from the roasted malts. Ordinary bitterness.
Simple.

vadie (1253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
Noir avec une mousse marron stable qui reste jusquau fin. Larme du malt torrfi. Le got est pareille avec presque pas damertume. Cest un peu aqueux, mais assez agrable.

August 17th, 2012 - If memory serves me right, this was a draft from a local tap house, and one close to the water. The landscape was gorgeous, and not unlike a scene from Battlestar Galactica, combining a slow flowing waterway with the modern minimalism of concrete architecture and delicately repurposed buildings, saved from decay and violence-by-wrecking ball. And the beer to give this scene a little flair was Canoe Brewpubs Dark Ale. A fresh puff of aroma hits the nose from the beer, and a quick sip as I take in the interior of the bar hits me with a sudsy and chalky touch of hot chocolate, with a long bakers chocolate aftertaste. The balance between the dark cocoa sugars and the hops is well done, making this a nice, satisfying drink to take in after a long day of walking around Victoria.

WheatKing (1329) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - MAR 3, 2014
On draught at the brewpub. Translucent Very Dark Brown, beige head. Nose is coffee, earthy. Flavour is powdery coffee, choc malt. Simple American-style, unhoppy brown leaning toward the robust side. Surprise of licorice on the finish.

kramer (5955) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear brown body with a small wispy light brown head that fell to a thin film. The nose is showing a bit of buttery diacetyl with the lightest chocolate and coffee notes, just lightly nutty. The flavor is pretty light on the butter, but it is there. Decent slightly sweet caramel and nutty malt, finishes with a slight metallic twang. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, a little clingy and sticky with some caramel lingering. Soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty weak attempt here as well, a little too light in the malt department and a little boring.

Ferris (13196) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Draft - Caramel and toasted malts. Almost jet brown with a light brown rich head. Roasted malts, nutty, molasses and some light prune notes. Very nice with a great body.

Druid (101) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2013
A very nice easy drinking beer, especially if you like dark beers. Heavy chocolate and coffee aromas. Pours a nice dark red - brown colour and has a very smooth if slightly sweet taste that has a variable length finish. Bitterness tends to come out right at the end of the finish.
