draught. Pours almost black, ruby when held to the light. Little to no head. Aroma is strong scotch, peaty, smoky. Taste is also dominated by the smoke and peat, backdrop of sweeter malts. Very unique, need to be in the right mood, but if you like scotch this one will please. Listigovers (1383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
This one is right up my alley. Smells like an Islay single malt. Pure black with a lingering tan head. Very smoky and peated. Lingering smoke. Crisp palate but thin bodied... really its only downfall. A must drink for scotch fans. Metalchopz (3684) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
Originally rated December 2004. Sampled at Vineyards in Ottawa. Poured a very dark red colour and had some lacing. The aromas were roasted and very intriguing. Hard to find the right scent. Some dried raisins and other fruits. Taste was smoked and bitter with a medium-full mouthfeel. solidfunk (9739) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Church key putting more batteries into the operation. This one smells smokey and tastes like flamed leather. Black pour and roasty malts give it lots of substance. on tap at volos. herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
Dark brown pour, small tan head. Aroma of smokey malt, a little chocolate, maple syrup. Smooth medium body. Smoke and whiskey pretty much. Good solid beer. Not sessionable but nice for something different.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2016 Black pour, little head. Aroma of dark fruit, cigarette smoke and dark toffee. Taste of peat, smoke, toasted malt, some brown sugar. Medium body - carbonation is right for the style. . ILduce (285) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2011
Beer Fest, Toronto: Black amber with beige head. Aromas of smoke and coffee with some toast. Roasty, nutty, malty flavour. Very promising. Eructoblaster (4457) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2011
On tap at the Black Tomato (Ottawa, ON). Opaque black body with a thin beige creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with smokey and grainy hints. Taste is sharp and carries robust smokey notes. Ends with a strong but rather short bitter/smokey finish. Well done. Ontbeertaster (3208) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2011
On tap, Pretty good stuff, it pours a black colour but not too too dark, the had a light aroma of smoke, with a little maltness in there. The beer was a little malty up front and a nice smokyness too it. The beer taste a fair bit smoky at front then the beer drinks really well and mixes with the smoke. Tasty some, recommend a taste RayOhm (474) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2011
