On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours black with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, some oats and a hint of dry cocoa. Flavour is very creamy, with lots of dry dark cocoa, hearty oats and toasted malt. Moderately bitter with a super creamy finish. Nicely structured and balanced well. Decent. fiery1 (1818) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2017
Draught @ the brewery. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Nose is roasted malt and some dark chocolate. Flavour is similar, rich roasted unsweetened dark chocolate. This packs a lot in there for the low abv, nice semi dry finish. Ferris (17800) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2017

On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with a dense beige head. The aroma has lots of chocolate, smooth roast, and is pretty big and rich for a 4% beer. It has a medium / light body with very soft carbonation. The flavor starts with cocoa, minor char, licorice and woody hops. The finish is woody and roasty. Pretty nice. Fatehunter (2651) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours one finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted and toast malt.
The taste is black coffee, roasted malt and burnt wood. Dark and deep.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
It’s nicely bitter and dark. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours a deep brown color with a roasted malt aroma. Taste is choco and unfortunately burnt malt. The burnt roasted malt flavor seemed to overwhelm this beer. Deep coco flamed malt lingers on the palate.
