Thankfully currently on tap at Jack Astors. Black with a fizzy tan head. Aroma was nice. Rosted malt, coffee, a little vanilla. Light and soft. Smooth with a slightly sweet finish. This is the best Hop City beer Ive had yet.

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
Can. Near black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of chocolate syrup and minerals. Flavors are of roasted malt, mild chalk, pilsner malt, and a hint of light roast coffee. Light bodied and a bit savory from the roast and mineral notes. Would pair well with food. Solid.

The finish on this beer is mild like most lagers but the aroma of black coffee and chocolate is strong. My first black lager and the first black beer of any kind I liked. Nice.

첫 맛은 마치 달지않은 맥콜을 마시는듯한 느낌 보리의 향이 확 올라온다. 아로마 마져 콜라같은 그런 느낌. 코로나 같이 엄청 부드럽진 않지만 꽤 부드럽고 스무스하게 넘어간다. 생각 산 맥주인데 매우. 상당히 맛이 좋음. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft in Toronto. Black pour. Thin. Cocoa very evident. Definitely not a stout (bartender tried to say was like Guinness). Not bitter. Enjoyable

Eructoblaster (4103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2016
On tap at The Works (Ottawa, ON). Pours a black body with brown glints and an average, beige creamy/frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with roasted cereals and coffeeish hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries roasty, herbal, and some chocolate notes. Ends with s decent bitter/roasty finish. Good stuff.
