3.23/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz Bottle from Brouehaha QC for 2.50$

Appearance - Dark brown colour with an average size fizzy beige coloured head. It's hard to make out the level of carbonation and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 4 minutes.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains, metallic

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and a hint of chocolate/coffee. There is also some corn/grains and some metallic notes. It ends with a grainy and lightly malted aftertaste with a bit of lingering bitterness.

Overall - It smells better than it tastes unfortunately. Still a pretty decent beer but not something I would pick up again. It's just a tad too boring. I can see how this would be a session beer however; especially given the ABV.

3.16/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

The beer comes in a dark brown, almost black.

The aroma is light roasted malt, metallic notes.

The flavor follows with a light porter-like roasted malt. Then onto a hint of German spicy hops. A decent amount of metallic flavor and lack of mid and back palate.

Serving type: on-tap
