neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2011
On cask at Cask Days 2011 at Hart House, served in an English pint glass. Pours black with a rocky, tan head that remains and leaves a small amount of lace. The nose has coffee and roast malts, with a touch of herbs and hops. The flavour is lightly sweet and moderately bitter throughout, with pine and roasted malts. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a smooth, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent stout as one might expect from this brewer. A very nice herbal accent throughout kept it interesting. 2011-10-30

Lanchester (183) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2011
Pint on tap at DDC. Pours jet black with a bubbly and dimpled mocha-colored head...quite formidable looking. If chocolate covered hops were to exist, this beer may very well represent that creation, a bold, earthy and resinous scent. Roasted and chocolaty malts vie for attention against a prominent hop character; finishes bitter and green with lingering pleasant hop aromatics. Smooth on the palate, the carbonation lends an ever-so-slight prickliness in the mouth. A hop-lovers stout for sure, while being balanced enough to remain sessionable.

rodenbach99 (3183) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2011
Verre de dégustation au DDC. Bière noire avec une belle couche de mousse brune. La nez est complexe avec des notes de café et de vanille. Il est classique pour une stout avec aussi de la torréfaction. La bouche est bien sucrée, cette bière semble liquide et mince. Le café rôti et les grains grillés dominent les saveurs. Un bon foreign extra stout. 6/10

SlovakSniper (3219) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2011
(Sample at DDC) Deep black in color. Medium brown head with good retention. Aromas are structured around roasted malts, burnt notes, dark cacao and sweet caramel. Taste is more on fresh ground coffee and pure chocolate. Body is enough full with soft carbonation and nice creamy texture. The finish is roasty and bitter. I need to drink this beer again.
