Deep black pour with a thick brown head. The nose is chocolatey and a little bit roasty with a touch of light coffee and some richness. No fruit. Malt driven with a bit of roast and some nice richness through the middle. Coffee is subtle but this is a nice brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Couleur noir avec une mince effervescence. Petite mousse brunâtre qui pétille. Un nez fin malté de sucre brun légèrement fumée. En bouche, un goût sec de noisette fumée, de caramel doux, et de baie noire. C’est très smouth, huileux et onctueux au palais. Une finale sèche sur des notes de petits fruits noire.

Bottle from the lcbo. Jet black pour, small beige head. Aroma is smoky, but subtle, and inviting. Not a slap innthe face withna charred log. Some nice roasted malts, soft cocoa, and coffee. Malts have hints of sweetness, and soy with some ripe fruit. Smoke rounds everything out softly with a subtle bitterness and roasty finish.

Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Cherry Hinton Road. Purplish black and opaque. The small tan head disappears quickly. Gentle wood smoke sits alongside roasted coffee in the aroma. The taste is dominated by the sweet/savoury richness of the smoked malt. A bit of grainy bitterness in the finish. Thin body. It’s pretty good but not as a,along as if hoped it would be.

The beet pours a solid coca-cola colour with a very thin creamy brown head which lingers and laces well. The aroma is peat wood, roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is well balanced between a smoked malt flavour, coffee, and caramel notes. Tastes great!
