The beer poured a very dark brown - almost black - color. Obviously I should have been expecting a dark color given the beer style but for some reason I thought it was going to be more on the brown side. The head development was weak with less than a cm appearing in my dimpled mug. Retention was equally as underwhelming as the head quickly receded into the dark beer. Virtually no lacing present.
The aroma of the beer was quite simply - I really could only identify the smell of dark grains which often gives me the impression of dark fruits like figs, plums, etc. I am also getting a sweet caramel touch.
Caramel is the most notable thing to mention about the taste. It is not overly strong but it would be hard to miss if you were paying attention to the taste. It is a sweet caramel / toffee. You can also taste the roasted flavors from the dark grains. I am still getting some dark fruits but the new kid on the block is a touch of bitter chocolate. Overall the taste is not bad but I am not overly impressed.
It had a creamy mouthfeel to it and a fairly dry finish. The carbonation was hidden in the dark liquid but was certainly present. I wasn’t expecting a lot of bubbles in the beer but I guess that was my own poor expectations given that this beer technically has the base of a lager. The mouthfeel was appropriate for the beer.

It pours a mahogany color with a a large off white head. There is a vast amount of carbonation present. This one has a whole bunch of lacing.
On the nose I am not really getting a lot. Some light carmel and a little grassy notes from the hops.
The flavor is nice and creamy. I am getting some carmel,some roasted malts,hints of dark fruit. There seems to be a little chocolate lurking around. It has a little bit of sweetness too it. But at the same time nothing that is really over powering.
It finishes with a little hop bitterness and a little dry. Almost a similar type of bitter I have found in some euro lagers. But having said that this is way better than those. Overall a pretty easy drinking beer. Crit (3996) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2010

Pours a dark colour with a thick white head which dissipates quickly. Sweet taste very light smooth grain, malts and caramel overall not a bad beer. mcberko (17815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2010
330mL bottle, pours dark brown / copper with a thick beige head. Very light aroma of roasted malt, grains, yeast and a rubbery scent. Flavour is heavier than the aroma suggests, but still very muted, with that rubber chocolate note coming through, and also sweet roasted malt, light nuts and grain. Decent.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden brown with a lively beige head. Low aroma of chocolate and musty cork. Flavours are on the weak side, matching the aroma: chocolate with light yeast and plum accents. On the watery side. Just okay for me. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2010
Bottle. Clumpy head thin but thick around the edge. Thin pouring dark copper. Aroma is slightly yeasty and smells like rubber chocolate pudding i recognize from certain malts. Heavy flavour for what looked like a lighter beer. Roasted malts, chocolate and a bit of an aluminum sour edge at the finish. As it warms it gains a certain harshness.
