This beer is topped with an eternally compact foam and has a wonderfully intense roasted smell with a hint of chocolate. It’s well-rounded and its taste is dominated by roasted flavours which are in symphony with a choir of hops.

Ferris (10788) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2013
Draft - So much coffee and chocolate with a hint of sourness. Jet black with a thin brown head. Tastes just like it smells with a hint of anise. Light body very sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

hivemind (882) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2013
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.
