[email protected] Head Pub, Victoria, Canada. Black beer with a strong head. The aroma has some hops, some smokiness but quite mild. The flavour is malty and roasted with a fair dry finish. Overall a reasonable mildly malty and roasted beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Above average beer... toasty flavor. I wish I had a mustache like the man on the label. Drunk from bottle and a decent price (under $2).

Dark brown pour. Aroma is roasted malts. Nothing too big or overpowering here, but decent flavours. Has nice lightly roasted flavours, nut, just enough hops for balance.

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