Keg at Mill St., Ottawa. Near black, mid sized head. Licorice and coffee up front. Dry with light-medium body and somewhat creamy rounded mouthfeel. Grainy licorice, coffee and spice. Long bitter finish. Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2016
From a can the pour is highly foamy that slowly constructs into a 3 finger khaki head, that last more than 20 minutes, has a very fine definition, and making creamy lacing. Extremely thick and creamy, almost looks like marble stone! (no joke) The beer is dark brown, almost black, opaque with no visual activity. Dominant malty sugars, with soft leafy spices. Flavors of wood, oysters, roasted dark malts, faint coffee and chocolate, soft molasses and caramel, and some herbal spices. Oily medium body with soft carbonation. Medium strength finish, a little spicy and peppery, lingering smoked malts with a light earthy feel of walnuts. A little watery and flat, lacks body, carbonation, and intensity. Doesn?t feel very fresh like a bad English porter. The flavors are okay, but nothing special. Overall mediocre quality craft.
