Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), - DEC 30, 2012
On tap at Cest What?: Aroma: dry roast , clean with decent roast , some balk tea. Tad too estery for lager. 6+
Apperance: dark brownish-black. Lighter white top. Rather flat looking. 3-
Taste/Palate etc. Medium bodied. Strong coffee like roast feel , semi dry. Softer follow-up. There is some of Schwartz in this beer , yet tad to soft on sides with its creamy walls.

jksipa (811) - 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-

Quevillon (2948) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
650 ml bottle bought at the brewery on June 25, 2015. Black, small head. Dry coffee malt aroma, lightly hoppy. The taste is more bitter sweet, light roasted coffee with some fruitiness, light bitterness. Very respectable flagship beer!

Ferris (13189) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Draft - Light roast malts and some pale malt sweetness. Deep brown with a nice beige head. Roast malts, vegative bitterness and almost a bit of farmhouse and manure in the finish. Toasty roast or toffee sweetness is not there. Odd long light bitter finish.
