PatIrish (183) - Toronto, Ontario, - SEP 30, 2012
On tap at WVRST, pours a dark black with an off white tan head. Roasted coffee, chocolate and some toasted nuts. Sweet and bitter on the palate, with a clean no linger finish.

jksipa (838) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle from the brewery. Dark mahogany pour under a small tan head that fades quickly to a sheet and leaves some sparse lace.Nose is roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, light coffee, a touch of vanilla and hints of dark fruit. Light sweet molasses with a more pronounced chocolate bitterness with lots of roast and hints of smoke. Mouth is medium with a nice dry finish and average carbonation. Quite enjoyable. 8+/4/7+/3+/16-
