COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a mocha colored head this bold and beautiful stout has layers of chocolate and roasted coffee like barley that give it a rich flavor that is intensified with the addition of Belgian bitter sweet chocolate. This beer is a velvet painting of chocolate and beer making out while listening to Barry White, painted by Otis Redding…Smooth STATS - 5.6% alc. vol. - O.G. 1.058 - 25 IBU - 40 Lovibond PAIRS BEST WITH - BEEF, DESSERT, BEAR SKIN RUG

Ok. Palate on light side here for a stout. Brown was a stronger beer for its style than this. Pours blackish with decent head and lacing. Light roast malt. Some light nut and dark chocolate. Finishes bitter with some caramel malt. Tap at brewpub.

Run of the mill stout, nothing special but well made. A good intro stout for people, light roasted and some bitter chocolate in the finish.

"Looking pretty good, but not really any head at all. Was expecting a thick foamy head (like the mocha part in the desciption) :( oh well. Extremely dark look. Getting more malts, coffee and various nutty flavours. Hints of chocolate. Nice and smooth going down. No aftertaste from my experience. Very good."

BreWedge (295) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2013
On tap @ Big Rig Ottawa. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a minimal beige head. Aromas were subtle and not helped by the pilsner glass it was served in nor it being fairly cold. What I could discern was a light honey. Interesting contrast to the taste which did not have much in the way of sweetness. Tastes are roasty malts, dry and nutty with a bit of chocolate on the back end. Exceptionally light bodied for a stout, moderate carbonation, and a short dry finish. This was a nice refreshing beer but far from what I normally expect from a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Quevillon (2448) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2013
Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewpub on February 27, 2013. Black, small head. Aroma of barley and chocolate malt, slightly sweet. Barley taste a little raw, not very rich, slightly bitter malt. A very easy to drink stout, even too much!

Metalchopz (2198) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
Originally rated July 2012. This is my first brew from this new brewpub in my region. Pours a dark brown colour with a small white cap, but decent lacing. Aromas of roasted malts with notes of chocolate and hop. Average mouthfeel. The taste is pretty much the same as the nose; chocolate, roasted malts and hops. Decent balanced stout between the malt and hop, that is still refreshing.

bunget (499) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Surprisingly light colour, deep red-brown body, residual 1-2 ml beige foam. This is the lightest stout I’ve seen so far. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, caramel, cocoa and a touch of woodiness. Taste dominated by strong espresso, caramel, roasted malt and wood charcoal. Almost completely flat, but with a decent dryness. A little too watery.

Black but not opaque, small beige head. Good roasty aroma, subtle cocoa. Light mouthfeel, and a solid carb. Medium bitterness, light chocolate, solid roast. Decent.

En fût au Big Rig à Ottawa. Couleur brune très foncé, mousse beige. Arôme de cacao et café. En bouche, douce, espresso, malt torréfié et un peu d’amertume. Très bonne.
