Balanced, slight roast malt flavour, overall no strong flavours come through, tasted a bit average jvhemert (438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2011
AROMA: nuts, cereal, leather Lubiere (14196) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2011
TASTE: medium bitterness
PALATE: medium body, oily feel, lively, bitter, longish finish
OVERALL: quite drinkable and nice low alcohol level, not one that stands out very much good allrounder
A dark mahoganny brown ale with a thin dark moka head. In aroma, very nice caramel overlayed with moka coffee and light creamy vanilla. In mouth, a soft sweet nutty malt with light coffee notes, a bit lighter than expected but very quaffable. Bottle from MLCC on Pembina Highway. planky84 (3453) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2011
Black pour with a beige head. Coconut, chocolate, light coffee aromas with some earthy notes. Licorice, caramel and coffee flavours. Very smooth. piscator34 (2667) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottled sample. Brownish-red in colour with moderate carbonation. Faint aromas of pale malt, minerals, orchard fruit and vanilla. Watery on the palate with notes of toffee, toasted nuts, molasses, and chocolate powder. A bit too watery and simplistic, but not all that bad either. Average.

500ml bottle. Pours near black with a medium head. Aroma is chocolate malt and dark berries. Some chocolate in the finish with a malty aftertaste. dynamiteninja (1895) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle conditioned. Pours a thin loose tan head, with poor retention. Black body. Aroma is metallicy/irony. Some fruits if you really look. Strange. A bad batch perhaps, although as the rating shows I still rather liked it. Later coming through is weak hints of cherries, chocolate milkshake, roastiness and Coca Cola. Rather sweet; there is some bitterness there. It smells like blood and looks like blood. Very refreshing and restorative. High carbonation, dry finish with some bitterness. Soft and silky mouthfeel. A good mild, particularly as the style never seems to much suit being bottled. AndrewC (379) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2011
Bottle conditioned. I love the fact that the bottle says it’s export strength at 3.9%. Rock on! Smells of chocolate and vine tomatoes. Tastes of slightly roasted, melon juice. Very soft in the mouth. Not bad. BeerViking (5087) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2010
Pours a dark red-brown with a tight mid-sized beige head, malt, some muscovada and a little plum plus a hint of tartness and a little spice - cinnamon? More malt and dried fruit on the vtongue plus notes of milk chocolate and a little coffee, then a dry fruity finish.
