look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Thanks again Colt for including it in the last box! The label on this bottle is awesome - def keeping it around.

A - pours a medium brown color with a one finger kahki colored head. Head dissipated almost immediately leaving a small puddle of foam left in the center of the glass.

S - predominantly cocoa and chocolate, slightly roasty with some coffee character. Molasses. Doughnut. I am surprised there's not much in the way of hops except some earthyness.

T - the nose follows the aroma with lots of chocolate and cocoa - very stoutish. Some coffee with some caramel sweetness. Still not getting much in flavor hops except a slight grassy, earthly profile. Nutty. Slightly bready and malty. A nice, fairly clean, firm biterness linger slightly providing depth without wrecking my palate.

M - medium-light bodied.

D - somewhat high for me. Consumed most of the bottle during the review.

Overall, a nice beer. They could just call it a hoppy stout instead and almost get away with it. I would like to have seen some more flavor hops in it. A nice citrus profile would go well with the dark grains in this one.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

355ml brown bottle poured in a pint glass. Purchased from Zyn in Calgary.

Light brown head is 1 inch on the pour. Recedes to a thick cap with gobs of lacing down the sides. Dark Brown, cola in appearance.

Roasty coffee notes. Roasted and burnt malts. Flowery and citrus hops in the background.

Roasty malt flavours up front. Hints of burnt malt, coffee, chocolate, toffee with just a hint of hops in the background.

Light-Medium bodied. A little thin for what I was expecting. Lightly carbonated.

An easy drinking brew. It could use a little more hops to give it some bite and balance. Not the best I've had, but all in all a good effort.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice brownish black with about three fingers of mocha head. Aroma is very malty, chocolate, coffee, with a little cream or vanilla sweetness and a dash of citrus hops. Taste is again malts forward, a well-integrated blend of creamy coffee, chocolate, a nutty bitterness. Hops are second place to the malts, does not taste like an IPA but more like a well-bittered and refreshing dunkel with more floral and leafy aromatics. I taste little citrus but its lurking in there somewhere. Very dry finish and a crisp refreshing character to go with the dark roasty malts. Only had one bottle in my possession and would welcome another.

I often walked past this intriguing little colourful bottle in my local MLCC. Been meaning to try this beer for quite sometime. Anyway cut to the chase, i purchased one and very glad that I did.

On opening the bottle, the slight smell of Coffee and slight wiff off chocolate greet you. Also a wonderful smell off malts. Enjoying it already and not even tasted it yet!

The pouring of the beer produced swirling tones of brown and amber shades, finished off with a nice decent creamy head.

Now for the taste, the earlier smell off chocolate and coffee were now evident with my first taste, and the malts kicked in seconds later. I am enjoying this!

Mouthfeel excellent, a slight bubbly feel if that makes sense.
Overall I really enjoyed this delightful Dark Ale. I will not be walking past this little rascal again. Well worth a try.

3.54/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a dark ruby brown with a finger width of beige head.

Smell - Leafy and piney hops, coffee bean, roasted malts, hint of vanilla bean.

Taste - Bold roasted flavours of malts and coffee bean up front, along with the hops and hint of vanilla. Roasted flavour lingers in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - An interesting take on the Cascadian by adding so much roasted/coffee bean character to it. A bit malt heavy and I would like to taste more hops in this.
