AgentAle (1560) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 25, 2015
Aroma is chocolate, mocha, rich roasty malts and vanilla. Taste is full and similar to the aroma and finishes quite smoothly albeit somewhat blandly. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

patricks110 (2456) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
A pretty boring porter with a good roast. Pours an opaqe black with a thick beige head. The aroma is roasted malts with a bit of coffee. Flavour is the same. Not too much bitterness.

brleo (78) - - DEC 17, 2014
Delicious and satisfying contender to Hoynes Dark Matter. Aroma is akin to a Russian Imperial Stout - burnt and slightly bittered with lots of roasted malt. Appearance is again similar to a RIS...small brownish head, beautiful black colour. Satisfying and rich flavor of roasted malt, black licorice, and a slight hop bite. Tastes "cold" and and a bit harsh if that makes sense, but once sipped it is a warming brew. Leaves a lingering licorice-esque bitterness that is exceedingly pleasant. Wonderful brew, would almost take it over Dark Matter.
