3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Way too much espresso on the nose here and not enough beer in the whole affair. Pours black with creamy mocha head and great lacing. Really not many porter characteristics. Light sour finish with some bitterness. C’est What Festival.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at C’est What? Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor brings out roasted coffee, hazelnut, with a nice roasted malt backbone and sweet finish. It could have a little more coffee, although the coffee notes are present. It just left me wanting a little more.

Draught at C’est What, Toronto
Black color, with no head. Both aroma and flavor remind of cheap coffee; the mouthfeel is weak and dry; ordinary bitterness.

I tried this beer on draught on June 8, 2012 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a solid dark brown colour with a creamy tan coloured head. The aroma was roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavour was chocolate, roast, and coffee and was very smooth. A very enjoyable beer.

Tap, pours a nice dark black, smell is very nice of coffee. and it has hints of the dark roasty malts but it seemed a little weak, it needed more bam.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black pour with a tight, creamy off-white head. The aroma is lovely. Assertive roasted coffee aroma over a rich, malt base. There is a lovely balance of coffee with the malt - its not overly extracted or bitter, nor is is vegetal. A lovely creamy palate and a fairly nice lingering coffee flavour. Pretty solid coffee beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fantastic, fantastic beer. Looks wonderful - dark, dark brown with thin but lasting creamy cappucino head. I have not had a beer that blends the coffee and the roast together so well. Brilliant balance. Sweet malts, bitter roasted malts, bitterness of the coffee, almost a sweet, lingering coffee finish. Neither side of the beer/coffee divide ever dominates. Mouthfeel is wonderfully creamy and smooth. Not overly carbonated. Another please!
