Jadyn and I had the day off on Indigenous People's Day so we went to Bukowski's for lunch and some beers. They had the newest beer in Pretty Thing's Once Upon a Time... series so we split a bottle.

This beer pours clear, but looks like an opaque black when viewed to the light. It's topped by a creamy and sudsy, brown head, which fades to a sudsy film leaving good lace. The aroma is roasty with notes of diacetyl, chocolate, mild toffee, a bit of fruit and a good dose of hops.

The beer has a roasty backbone throughout, a mild chocolate sweetness, bready sweetness, and toffee. The finish has a nice roasty and resiny hop bitterness. The beer is medium-bodied, and moderately carbonated.

This beer is malty but the sweetness is attenuated and balanced by nice roasted flavors and a good dose of hops.
