3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mousse de couleur chocolat, assez épaisse, sur un liquide totalement opaque et mi-épais. Notes de chocolat amer et de café. La bouche est mince, plus chocolatée que café, un peu aqueuse sur les bords mais qui gagne en richesse lorsqu’elle se réchauffe. Stout classique, pas exactement révolutionnaire mais bien faite en son genre.

341 mL bottle. Pours black, dark reddish walnut at the edges with a cap of khaki head. Aromas of coffee, cookie like malt, toffee, cocoa and mild dark fruit. Moderate sweetness, with smooth roast character, not ashy or acrid. Average body with a creamy mouth feel. Modest carbonation. Unique.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown body with 2 fingers of mocha head. Aromas and flavour are of dark, chocolate, black coffee and oatmeal. My only real knock on this one, was that the mouthfeel was a little thin for what I expect from my stouts. Of course that made it one quaffable stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hugely roasty aroma: coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and vanilla with notes of red fruit and faint citrus. Opaque black with dark brown, almost clear, highlights under a light brown ring and patch. Sweet and bitter coffee and mocha flavour with fudge brownies with raspberry coulis. Balance toward sweet. Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, smooth.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the 2014 Winterbrewed Craft Beer Festival on Valentines’ Day. Poured a dark brown colour with a beige head and thick patchy lacing. Mostly chocolate aromas with soft vanilla over the roasted malt and hints of coffee. Medium-bodied with some stickiness. Taste of coffee and roasted malts with a little sourness. An easy drinking stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at 3030. Pitch black pour with a thick brown head. The aroma has a lot of cocoa and dark coffee with a nice roasty component. Solid malt profile through the middle. Sweetish through the middle bit with a dry roasty finish. Pretty solid.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
clear dark brown pour with a small if not absent cap, no lacing. chocolate roasty notes, coffee, lactose, ashes, red fruity notes, chalk, woodsiness, bit of resin, bit of booze. low carbonation, light to medium body - oily, bittering coffee and slightly resinous finish. by the book stout if not for the lack of looks. yeah i’m like that.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pretty much black pour with a bubbyly tan head. Wow that smells dark. Chocolate and smoke in my nose. The mouth matches. Wow. This is fantastic but rich. I would love a bottle of this at home for a cold night. I can’t see drinking a bunch of this but a glass after a big meal or maybe beside a steak would be awesome.
