Nitro, dark brown, aroma is cocoa, with light citrus. A tart, slightly cocoa-ish, but refreshing. Light Irishy stout.

Deep black pour with a thick tight head. The flavour is pretty solid - a bit of cocoa and some light chocolate. A bit of tartness. Lovely.

On nitro at the brewpub.Sessionable beer, but I would like to get at the truer flavour on tap if not on cask. Let’s see how the bottle stacks up. In any event, a creamy roasty beer with significant chocolate.

2013-08-11. Black body with a small tan head. 3++ Very dry roasty aroma has coffee like touches to the roast. Flavour is fairly dry bitter roast up front, muted sweet dark malt in the middle. Average plus palate with modest carbonation. Tons of flavour for such a low abv. I suspect that the strong roast character is part of how they achieve that which is unfortunately not entirely to my own tastes. Pretty decent nonetheless. Bottle from Bellwoods, Toronto

Sampled this at Campground Brewdown 2. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin beige to tan head. Soft roast, cocoa, chocolate, faint coffee. Soft chocolate, bitter with light acidic tones. Faintly acidic, chocolate, cocoa, long roast into the finish.

DuffMan (6167) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle, sent to me by Sammy-- thanks! Dark brown pour with a tan head that recedes rather rapidly to a light skim. Aroma is very roasty with underlying notes of chocolate and ash. The palate delivers more roast with an underlying cola-like sweetness and light cocoa. Dry short finish. A very flavourful lower ABV session stout.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
On draught at Bar Hop. Very deep fairly non cloudy reddish black with a lovely creamy tan lasting creamy head - nitro? Taste and aroma are very well balanced with no alcohol at a - quite dry and minerally with plenty of roast, coffee, dark chocolate, herbal bitterness- solid solid stuff. Light ish body, a little astringency, mildly carbonated with a fairly long dry nutshell like finish. One of the best sub 4% ate outs I have ever had. Even die hard Guinness drinkers would love this one.

blankboy (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
Draught at the brewpub. In this dark light: Pours black with an average size lasting creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, cream, coffee, chocolate, a hint of metal (not in a bad way) and very light leafy hops. Flavour: Oh wow! So much flavour. Light toasted malt, light leafy hops, lactic notes, chocolate, egg shells and a moderate bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. This is really impressive, especially for 3.8% -- great stuff!

Bottle at CGBD. Pours brown with a beige head. Medium roasted malts, hints of coffee, and some light caramel sweetness. Lighter earthy notes as well. Pretty good.
