UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 Tap @ CBC2013, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and chocolat, but then with extra figs, mint or coconut. Bit too sweet in taste besides the medium bitterness. Cool to see it’s fermented with a lager yeast. 3.7 mcberko (19175) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
