Dark brown near black. Earthy roasted aroma. Feel and flavor are a bit thin, though. Not as dialed in as expected from Upright. Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Very chocolatey, strong aroma, coffee notes, similar character, actually stronger coffee than anything else, but thin and never really comes together. pushkinwow (2793) - Ottawa, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown with a brown head. Nice fresh and wet oat aroma, somewhat bitter, dry, some chocolate and hint of lactose, nutty bit of chocolate. Gerbeer (3755) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
On tap. Pours black with light head. Aromas of light roasted malts with maybe a hint of nuttiness. Flavors are similar missing the creaminess that I expected oats would bring. Quite a bit of carbonation. Okay but nothing special. fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver

Black color with small compact head. Some roasted malt aroma. Strong flavor of roasted malt, dry mouthfeel, traces of coffee; strong bitterness; more roastiness in the end.
Boring monodimensional beer; I’m not saying it’s bad.
Draft at the source: surprisingly carbonated. Not much to the aroma. Sulphur and smoke all over it in the mouth. A milky body but a little too fizzy for me. Smooth but with a real bitterness in the finish. Travlr (24875) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Draft at the source. Almost black, tan head. Nice aroma of milk chocolate, oatmeal, coffee. Taste is coffee grounds, hi quality unsweetened cacao. douglas88 (9192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2013
On tap at Upright. Pours a nearly total black color with a medium beige head. A light nose of roast, some chocolate. A light fruity flavor with more robust roast, light bitter hops, chocolate, ash. Very tasty, hefty for the ABV.
