A: Black body with a healthy bright beige head.
S: Not a lot going on here. A bit of coffee and black chocolate. Has a bit of that stouty chlorinated flavour.
T: Initially a bit tasteless, but opens up when it warms. Still getting that annoying cholirated flavour. Otherwise, completely dry and a bit sour. Smokey with some nice muddiness. Just a hint of dried fruits.
O: Chlorine!!!!!!! Not a world-class beer but then not a world-class brewery.

Light roast and dark cocoa malt in aroma. Nice, chocolatey flavor, nutty malt backbone, with a lightly bitter finish. Great example of the style, albeit a touch sweet.

750ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $6.50 or so

Appearance - Dark brown colour with an average size frothy/fizzy beige head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and coffee. There is also some vanilla and a bit of an odd musty/fishy type of flavour I can't put my finger on.

Overall - I think my bottle might be a little out of date. Unless the sour milk/oyster type flavour in intentional? A decent beer but the 750ml format is not ideal for me. Worth a try.

The tasting notes on this one are spot on. It definitely has the big malty flavor and the bit of astringency on the finish. It's color is a very dark brown which can just barely be seen through when light is shown through.
