Interesting flavour, pleasant bitterness, interesting hop profile, leafy with interesting malt character, dusty notes, muted fruit, toasty English malt undertones. 7+ Nice leafy green hop aroma, mild citrus and fruit undertones. Some roast comes out as it warms. Smooth average bodied plate. Nice, interesting melange of flavours. Cask at Volo, Toronto

On tap at Volo. Too dark to see what it looks like. Probably black. I’m gonna say black. Aroma is the typical mix of chocolat/java and resiny hops. The flavour is solid, if unspectacular. But the body is great - full and creamy. Maybe some oatmeal in there?

Draught at Volo, Torontosudomorph (1190) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
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.
On tap at Barvolo. Poured black with a mocha head that thins to a film and leaves great lacing. Aroma is roasty with floral and tropical notes.Taste is a bitter roasted with a touch of herbal on the finish.Medium body and carbonation. Slightly slick texture but fairly smooth. Drinkable but slowly. Overall tasty and drinkable. Solid flavour. Would order again for a change up.
