HermanW (1069) - Coevorden, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2010
0,3 litr fles gekocht in Ucluelet (Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada). Een 6-pack voor Cad $ 15,20 Maar het is het wel waard een heel lekkere dunkel. Hij is beter dan ik had verwacht.

3.1
asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2010
[bottle] Toasty aroma with some dried fruit and a touch of nuts. Almost opaque black with a beige ring and wisps. Slightly chalky flavour that is nutty and with hazelnuts. Sweet and medicinal with herbs and faint vanilla. Light body, moderate carbonation, slightly nutty finish.

Smell is mostly caramel, beer is highly carbonated with lots of malt, some coffee and a subtle complexity. Very enjoyable, though nothing jaw-dropping.

zeek (194) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
Color and opacity is similar to a porter, but the big carbonation bubbles betray its lager roots. Pours a big head which disappears quickly. Nice roasted malt aroma. Flavor is good, the roasted malt overwhelms any subtle flavors this beer may have. Finishes with almost no after taste, but leaves a slight oily like film in mouth. Will buy again.

cgreb (422) - Marburg, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2009
bottle - nearly black beer with a beige head. Aroma of cloth and some bread. Flavour is smooth maltiness and bread.

bulldogops (2907) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2009
On tap at Howard Johnson (by the Commonwealth pool). Very dark pour with a weak tan head that is frothy, but fades quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, molasses. Taste is mild cofeee, chocolate, and molasses. Finish is quite smooth, this beer is quite enjoyable.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
Not the best beer I’ve had from this brewery, but still drinkable. Poured a very dark amber colour (like a Coke!) along with an almost brown foamy head. Aroma was a teeny tiny bit of malt matched with some light hopping. Taste was rather more malty and also had some coffee in there as well.

3.2
pfriesen (125) - Richmond Hill, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2009
Pours Black with a tan head that quickly fades. Aroma is molasses and coffee, with a slight bit of anise. Mouth feel has a slight, smooth chocolate richness, with flavours of molasses, dried plum and mocha

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2008
6/6/08 On draught at the Stickey Wicket, Victoria, BC. Aroma is very low with lightly roasted sweet malt dominating. Appearance is dark brown with a tan head. Flavor is roast malt forward with no hops; very simple. Mouthfeel is medium-high bodied with a very low carb texture. Overall, nothing objectionable, but not enough flavor.

2.8
Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2007
Sweet, malty nose. Dark body. Head is foamy at first but flattens too soon. Smooth. Bready entry. Full of malt. Slightly sweet finish: a little too sweet for me. Mild. Drinkable and light-bodied.
