3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown colour with copper highlights. Nice frothy-creamy, long-lasting beige cap with full lacing. Aromas of mild roasted malts with hints of vanilla, coffee and chocolate. The taste is hop over the roasted malts. Oily-watery mouthfeel and medium-bodied. Decent bitterness overall. Straight out stout with a little more hop than usual.

Large bouquet stimulates nose after uncapping: cocoa liqueur, roasted malts, cherries. Dark brown complexion. Bubbly foam. Sweet afore with lingering dry bitter finish. Not too fizzy in mouth. How did they do it?

Dark brown pour with a fair sized offwhite head. Roasted malt, dark caramel, hops in the aroma. Lighter fruit notes give way to toasted malt, cocoa, cereal grains, lighter vanilla sweetness. Medium to heavier body, drying finish.

Strong roast, notes of bitter cocoa, coffee, and some light vanila. Dry finish, low bitterness. Solid roasty notes, just an all around good stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Dark not-quite-black with a tan head. Solid aroma with notes I expect from a good stout - roasted malt, cocoa, hints of coffee and chicory - along with a slightly more prominent hop character than is typical. Flavour follows, presenting a good roasty stout with leafy hops in the finish with a slight metallic tang. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured out of the bottle a dark brown. 36ºSRM.
Nose had dark fruit aroma. There is some nice fresh ripe grape aromas. Some nice clean sugary flavors. almost like a "chin chow". There are some clean barley aromas, like a freshly breweed batch of local homemade barley.
Mouthfeel is carbonated and slightly soapy. There are some nicely roasted dark malty flavors. Slight salty taste that rounds off the impression of umami at the end. Good charcoal hit. Brief impression of peat.
Finish is bitter without much character.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A soft nose of chocolate and mild coffee. This stout has a very clean balanced taste, featuring some earthy and floral hops, mild chocolate and coffee, and a slight touch of creaminess. A slightly thinner than expected consistency, the hop presence, and a clean dryness to the finish round out the taste profile. An easy drinking stout with a slight lean towards a black IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black pour. Sort of a salty caramel biscuit with burnt toast and a hint of ash. Medium bodied with a touch of sweetness and finishes with a bit of bitterness. A very tasty brew
