Thankfully currently on tap at Jack Astor’s. 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 I’ve had yet.
Une mousse sans grandes convictions au-dessus d’une bière noire cola. Un nez de grains légèrement grillés, de toffee et de tire-éponge. Les saveurs, quoique semblables comportent quelques ajouts, en l’occurence les gaufrettes au chocolat et des pointes herbacées. Corps moyen avec une présence normale de bulles.

On tap at the Highlander Pub, Ottawa. Pours a beige foamy head, maybe an inch of thickness and has a dark brown appearance, light red hues. Aromas are mainly malts and earthy hops. Flavours of coffee and light chocolate notes. Some mild spices. Pretty watery mouthfeel though. Not too bad but cannot beat Kostritzer. HopsWarden20 (27) - Beijing, CHINA - AUG 1, 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. Brettsky06 (467) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 22, 2017
Pours black with a finger of tan head. Some espresso aromas. Taste is the same with some roasted notes. Bitter throughout

Nice and smooth. A touch of bitterness at the end. Great with gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. caramel, chocolate, coffee, toast, roasty, earthy, smoke, woody, GlennHendry (465) - OSHAWA, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2016
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. kevinsenn (2236) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2016
Can from LCBO. Sweet milky aroma. Taste is sweet and creamy, with some roasted notes. Solid black lager. ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2016
Pours black with a tanned head. Aroma is espresso and dark chocolate. Flavour is roasted malts, coco, and dark fruits. It has a medium creamy body with bit of a sweet finish. Really enjoyable. JeongWoo (3) - - JUL 30, 2016 does not count
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.
