Pours jet black with a big frothy tan head that sticks around. Very clear, some ruby highlights around the edges. Smooth coffee like toasted malt dominates the aroma with some toasty notes behind it. Big malt flavor, tastes of toasted bread crust, with a touch of caramel and a smooth toasty coffee note, the roast is very smooth with no astringency. Mouth feel is creamy with a medium body and medium carbonation. Really nice example, a little more of a caramel than I expected. rcasta (861) - EL SALVADOR - MAR 31, 2014

Aroma of chocolate with musty, earthy notes throughout. Pours dark with a rich, lingering tan coloured head. Strong dark chocolate flavour with hints of grain, oatmeal, and sweet mocha. Pleasantly carbonated but not very light for a dark beer, left me wanting more complex texture. Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Pours ruby black with massive tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, burnt malt, fruit cake, and raisins. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, raisin. burnt malt, toffee, and black licorice . Has a creamy medium body with average carbonation, also a little dry feeling with good lacing. 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.

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. Subliminal64 (170) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2016
Another Hop City product, and another favorite.
Smells very faintly of malt. Almost a licorice smell.
Pours a dark brown with no visible light through it. Head stays to the end.
Taste is not overpowering of malt. No booze taste.
Decent amount of carbonation. Small bubbles. Little aftertaste.
Overall I was so happy with this purchase. Had on draft at The Works in London. Will be looking for this one again.

Black, appearing dark red when held to light. Tan foam. Aroma of voffe, espresso, malt. Body light and effervescent. Bold malty espresso flavour. Pleasant mild bitterness. Finish is looong and dominated by bold coffee, espresso flavours. Bold yet surprisingly drinkable. Randy4Beer (513) - - MAY 8, 2014
Pours a nice dark, reddish hued black (think Coke). Thin off-white head. Leaves thin lacing behind.
Aromas of mocha, dark chocolate, with the slightest hint of wet cardboard.
Medium mouth feel. Tastes of light chocolate, and cherries. A bit of Apple peel.
Overall this is a nice light snack of a beer. Not heavy, very sessionable, but with a lot more going for it than you might think. Iíd buy it again. shorlin (721) - St. Johnís, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
Solid black with a little bit of tan head. Aroma is super roasty and toasty. Very biscuity with a little coffee. Nice. Very serious malty taste, more roast and bitterness. Feel is thin, but hey, this isnít an RIS, itís a lager. Good beer!
