lukin (604) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2011
draught. Dark ruby-brown colour, thin head. Aroma of malts, yeast, some roast chocolate notes. Taste mirrors the aroma, but mouthfeel is thin and too bubbly. Ok.

I tried this beer on July 18, 2011 after purchasing a 6 pack from my local LCBO outlet. The beer poured a translucent reddish-brown with a very thin white head. The aroma was roasted malt, weak coffee, some caramel, and weak fruit. The mouthfeel was thin to medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is both bitter and sour malt, with a hint of sweetness.

Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2011
Bottle, pours brown, expected a bit more darkness, but the smell is nice, its of kind of chocolate yeastyness, Taste is similar. I found it to be very yeasty, hints of similar tastes to other f n m beers. but it worked for this offering, I enjoyed the taste of this beer

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2011
Sweet, malty, and easy to drink. Hops are present but dont translate into a strong bitterness. Very sessionable. I liked.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
Bottle. Attractive mahogany appearance. Aromas of hot chocolate, mild coffee and corn syrup. Burnt chocolate and sawdust flavours. Good in general but painfully average for a dark.

Zenwolf (269) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2010
Draught. Dark copper-brown with red tinge. Medium body with too much fizz. Caramel and blonde nuts.. very drinkable.. though slightly acrid in the swallow. On Tap at a steakhouse I used to eat in.. will never eat there again.. so no more of this for me either..

Frothmeister (783) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2010
355ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown, with a thin off-white head that disappeared very quick. Aroma is cocoa, earthy, and dark cereals. Taste is dark malt, slight sweetness, straw, faint chocolate. Watery, grassy and faint bitter finish.
