BrewWhatIWant (122) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2017
Pours mahogany colour with a short lived off white head. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is slightly sweet with a dry bitter finish. There are notes of roasted malt, barley, coffee, earthy hops, and burnt sugar. Thin bodied and low carbonation. Its like a stout and a bitter had a baby, and then when they realized what it was they locked it in the basement.

Subliminal64 (144) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2016
Smells very faintly of an ale. Pours a dark red brown. Taste is very light. Not much to review. Good carbonation. Overall I thought it was bland and almost tasteless. Will not buy again. MB The Beer Bear-on

googleimage83 (129) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
Pours a dark brownish red with unappealing grey fizzy head; head disappears rather quickly. Malty aroma of caramel, some cherry cola and coffee notes - not much hop character. Somewhat toasty in the mouth - slightly medicinal up front, a bit of malty sweetness and slight coffee in the middle; chalky bitterness in the finish. Not very good.
