Ratign #1159 - 06.07.2014- Beer seminar at Coop MacTaggart. Little bit of tan bubbly foam on an opaque black pour. Lots of cool toasted malt chocolate coffee aromas. Palate is light crisp and full of flavour, but very light-medium bodied. This is sessionable and assassin worthy. mabel (10002) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015

From LCBO, drank at the farm in Calabogie. Re-cola pour with thin but creamy tan head and bubbly legs. Smells of piny hop, dark sweet spiced malt, maple syrup, spice, hint of dark fruit. Tastes fizzy, oily, thin-to-medium thickness, bitter finish. Crisp and malty. HKdIPA (875) - HONG KONG - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from LCBO had at the Farm. Dense foamy frothy head - slightly tan. Aroma is slightly metallic, a bit roasted and nutty. Taste is richer than expected, with a nice pronounced bitterness that lasts. Smooth palate. And lingering sour bitterness. Good, easy drinking, but full flavor and palate. Aroma disappointing though.

Bottle; pours cola-black, gold highlights, 1 finger off white cap - Aroma is all PNW hop over light roastiness and some bready malting. Flavour is hoppy, roasty-lightly malty, clean roasty finish, very rounded and easy to drink MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a deep brown colour with large fluffy head. Aroma is malty, some spices and malts. Taste is toasted malt, hops. Pretty decent beer.
blankboy (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
[Bottle (650ml)] Pours a deep dark amber-brown with a large lasting fluffy beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is malty and nutty along with light leafy hops, light spices and some breadiness. Flavour of toasted malt, leafy hops and a long moderate bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good. Randy4Beer (515) - - DEC 7, 2014
More extremely dark brown than actual black in colour. Thin, slightly off white head, leaving decent lacing behind.
Aromas are grass, roasted malts, with an underlying earthiness to it all.
Light creaminess to the palate, but still some hints of lager crispness coming through. Tastes of roasted malts, and very light citrus hops on the swallow. Some grapefruit bitterness.
I think I was expecting a hoppier beer, given its name, but this is still a nice drinkable beer, of medium complexity.
Boutip (6659) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle: Poured a clear black color lager with a nice dark off-white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt notes with some bitter hops notes is OKish. Taste is also dominated by light roasted malt notes with some bitter hops notes and some light citrus notes. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation. A bit short on character in my opinion.
