Tap at Barcade. An above average stout. Pours a charming black with a thick, voluminous tan head. Aroma of well roasted malts and coffee. Flavor packs more of the same. Burnt malts and some smokiness. Hops are detectable in the tail. Full bodied and creamy, this beer is a smooth drink.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2008 More or less black in colour. Well, a little less but not enough to quibble. Roasty, plummy, deeply chocolatey aroma. Chewy dark malts - roasty, chocolatey. Well-defined flavours with only a hint of fruitiness. A lot of hoppy dryness in the finish. Quality.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Tin Bucket, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out fairly harsh burnt roasted malt, with fairly aggressive hopping. Flavour is along the same lines, with burnt roasted malt dominating, along with bitter piney hops on the underside. Nicely constructed - tastes better than it smells. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Half Time. Pours brown/black with a dark tan head. Aroma comes across as resin. And smooth burnt malt. Med body or nearly so. Flavor starts as hop, then more hop, then a slightly ashy smooth burnt malt. It is quite hoppy and bitter. Excellent ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at IBGWF 12. Poured a black color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt and hop aroma. Medium to heavy chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. This is a very good beer that exceeded my expectations.
