2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a very good stout. It is thin in the body and has a timid roastiness (for a stout) and lacks the required bittering hops to boot.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This stout poured a dep black colour with a smooth creamy head, tan in colour. Scents include chocolate, coffee, roasty, cream and beef gravy. First sip was smooth with a creamy mouthfeel with flavours of coffee, chocolate with a roasty finish. Palate is slightly hoppy with a charred roasty flavour lingering.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Great Wolf Lodge (?!?!). Poured a dark brown with a long lasting creamy head. Notes of coffee, some light chocolate and maybe a hint of dark fruit. Reasonably light in the mouth. Pretty good beer, but what an odd place to find it among the crying toddlers and over stimulated tweens.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
341ml bottle from the brewery. Generic Amsterdam label.
Appearance : Deep amber with medium foamy brown head.
Aroma : Fruity yeast with raisins and light coffee.
Taste : Light coffee with fruits. Light hops on finish with light chocolate, light coffee and some fruits. Body is very thin. Light butterscotch.
Overall : Not bad but a bit thin. Granted it’s a dry stout but I still think it was a bit too thin. A bit too fruity also.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a virtually black dark brown with modest-sized light brown head. Aroma is quite roasty with cocoa and a bit of nuttiness. Flavour is likewise rather roasty with more pronounced cocoa presence and a little nuttiness. Slightly dry in the finish; body is a little lighter than expected (though not light in absolute terms). Overall not super complex but fairly nice.

On tap at Olde Angel Inn in Niaraga on the Lake. Pours a pitch black with an beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and dry cocoa. Taste is a dry, roasted malt and faint chocolate. Some faint smoke in the aftertaste but not off putting. Good beer but very middle of the road.

AP clear dark brown with a tan head AR flabby pale malt structure, decent amount of roast, touch of peanut shell FL decently balanced dry roasty stout, not a ton going on but no real flaws PA a little to fizzy, would be nicer on nitro tap OV decent dry stout, nice to see one in ontario
