No retention at all, not even with a fast vigorous pour and no lacing (obviously). Smells of chocolate, caramel and toffee. Tastes of toffee, nuts and caramel. No aftertaste.

Fairly deep brown with a tiny white head. Aroma is quite nutty and malty. Taste is some milk chocolate with a hint of hazelnuts. TimE (6005) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2016
low bitterness good chocolate character. Not a bad brown but pretty middle of the road alex_leit (4809) - Minsk, BELARUS - APR 4, 2016
Can. Brown color, weak foam. Aroma: yeast, slightly caramel, sweets. Taste: malty, sweet, caramel, sugar. Lagerboy (2221) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2016
355 ml can. Clear deeper copper, lasting thinner tan foam. Aroma of sweet toasty malt and brown sugar. Taste is quite thin toasted malt, caramel, kinda nutty, some cola and sugar. Moderate carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Love the graphics but not one of Fernie’s better efforts. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary) mcberko (18434) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a deep dark bronze with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of toasted malt and toasted nuts. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malt, a touch of caramel and toasted nuts. Pretty weak and unambitious. Not offensive, but it’s not good.

A little sour and slightly contaminated in overall taste. Pours brown with ok head. Tangy sour finish. Not my thing. Tap at Garrick Head. DeanF (2471) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2015
Soft barley aroma with a modest head and dark brown body with still a decent amount of translucency. Rather disappointing barley flavour and watery finish. A typical beer of theirs that is found lacking. cmacklin (1246) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2015
355 ml can. Pours a clear brown with a small, creamy, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, caramel, bread and nuts. Sweet malty flavour of caramel and nuts with a dry finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. ljthiessen (1391) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 18, 2015
Can. Clear, dark reddish brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is raisin and sweet bread. Flavour is very malty but not overly sweet, raisin and grape with slight bready notes and a little metallic. Soft carbonation with a pretty dry finish. Like most of Fernie’s offerings, pretty plain but fairly well balanced and very drinkable. BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
355 ml can from a Fernie sampler twelve-pack, served in a shaker pint glass. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with a light brown, puffy head that leaves streaks of lace. Nose is roasted malt, nuts, and a bit of coffee and cocoa, with mild fruitiness beneath; flavor is quite savory with bitter cocoa, nuts (peanuts in particular), dark roasted grain, and a vaguely steak-with-mushrooms presence. Medium-bodied, and with lingering roasty, nutty notes on the tongue. A delicious, savory beer, fulfilling the "meal in a glass" notion with good balance.
