[on cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest 2012]
Nice blend of chocolate and grapefruit hops in the nose. Opaque dark brown under large, tan bubbles. Faint diacetyl behind a nice, tart chocolate and a crapload of US hops; grapefruit and more complex characteristics. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, lingering black malt character in the finish. GRM (4180) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2013

Draught at Volo, Torontoczar (9430) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
Black color; almost no head. The aroma is mild, some roasted malt, but also some apple, therefore the fermentation process should be tuned up. Good body strength, round, with good dark caramel flavor, some chocolate, medium-strong bitterness.
Rough but pleasant.

Cask at Vankleek Hill’s/Beau’s Oktoberfest. A reddish/brown black ale with a short-lasting beige head. Smell is roast and chocolate. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, chocolate, caramel, molasses. Finish is quite herbal and boozey. Herbal finish is quite lingering! Body is thick, mouthfeel is sticky. No carbonation at all. Pretty good dark ale! solidfunk (9409) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Easily the best bipa Ive ever had. This pulls this hybrid style together and makes me see everything it could, (and should) be. The aroma is smoked hops, smoked malt. Lacing great with thick head pour. Taste has soft carbonation, hoppy bitters and some stout-like sourness at the end. Great palate and full profile. Cask at volos
