Pours with a decent sized head. Quickly dissipates though. Minimal lacing. Aroma is slight with hints of chocolate. Taste is kind of bland which is to be expected from a dry stout. Aftertaste is mostly toasted malt. Very drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
341 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Deep brown-black with a decent light mocha head. Quite dry, roasted barley, some cardboard, a touch of grape, stark and stern. Medium body with moderate, fine effervescence. More cardboard than the nose, roasted barley, a touch of grape fruitiness, still stark and stern; dry with fair bitterness and a roasted, stark finish. Not a style I care for, even though it is authentic.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Mewís Tavern - Wakefield, RI. This is about as close to mineral water as Iíve had in a commercial beer. Granted, it is 3.9%, but the body is very shallow. There are some roast hints around the corners and a bit of sugar, but I focus on a sparkling water effervescence and refreshing quality. I would think that for the weight and the style, a little more flavor could be injected.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 mL bottle. Right colour but not much head. Fairly mild aroma and actually a little sweet-smelling. The flavour is a little sweet as weíll; this really doesnít strike me as a dry stout. Not that itís a bad beer; pretty good depth of flavour for the abv. Some cola, a little caramel, a touch of roast. Itís not big by any means, but itís a nice session stout.

355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark brown with hints of ruby and small light tan head. Aroma is on the understated side with roasty coffee, nuts and caramel. Flavour is roasted grains, coffee, nuttiness and a little caramel sweetness. Dry finish. Decent, but nothing really stands out.
