12oz glass on tap at the Underground Tap and Grill pours black in color with a light brown head that settles to leave some thin spotty lacing behind. Aroma is mild with chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a subtle roasted grain bitterness. Medium bodied with a mild carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice tasting stout.

On draft 01.20.2013 at the brewery with Andy, Ricky, PJ as part of Broquest Montreal 2013. Best feature here is the dark, sizable, hot-chocolate-looking head. A little dry, medium bodied, but not a lot of flavor. Easy drinking, but smells and tastes a lot like a Guinness to be honest.
