3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at C’est What. Translucent dark ruby-ish brown; fast-dropping creamy head with rather thick lace. The aroma is pretty much like cold coffee, with roasty-toasty malts behind that but not much else. Not that there’s anything more I want. Tastes of sweetish coffee, roasty; finishes very dry. Flattish mouthfeel with little and thin carbonation (yet not without a certain crispness). An honest, no tricks coffee Stout. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Kind of disappointing black pour with minimal head. Decent chocolate and coffee aromas in the aroma. Mildly milky/creamy, easy finish, oily, malty backing. Solid.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at C’est What. Brown with mocha head. Some roasted malt and chocolate but muted, mild body and moderate carbonation, easy to drink but somewhat thin, leaves a bit of a chalky coffee taste on the palate.

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.

Black color, with no head. Both aroma and flavor remind of cheap coffee; the mouthfeel is weak and dry; ordinary bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
