mcberko (5352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at Dieu du Ciel, pours black with a sizable foamy light brown head. Aroma of moderate roasted malts, some chocolate and very subtle espresso beans. Flavour straddles the line between stout and imperial stout, with moderate roast, bittersweet dark chocolate and some light burnt rubber flavours. Medium-to-full bodied and well designed. Great one.

October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. Nearly black pour with a small but lasting frothy beige lasting head. Simple aroma - strong roast, not sweet, plenty of campfire and light peat, some alcohol presence. Taste is sweeter, the peat is more in the background, and there is a good amount of balancing fresh green herbal bitterness, like tossing a spruce bough on a campfire. Slightly thin mouthfeel, lightly astringent with not much carbonation, and it finishes dry and ashy, a little residual sweetness in the aftertaste - really smooth and well made.

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
Solid stout here with a big roasted malt and a finish of mild bitterness. Pours a nearly opaque black with a fluffy and creamy head that linger and laces the glass quite a bit. The nose is roasted heavily with a bit of smoky malts and chocolate. Not too sweet and a bit dry and bitter on the finish actually. A very well done and creative stout.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. Deep brown-black pour with a tight tan-brown head. The aroma is quite coffeeish and dry. A little bit of light dry roast. Some light cocoa and roasted malt. Lean bodied - more like a stronger dry stout than a foreign or export stout. Either way, it’s a decently dry hoppy stout. Espressoish.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel. Pours a deep viscous black with a medium to thick tan head. Big and roasty, chewy chocolate and pudding. Lots of roast, chocolate and chewy cocoa. Nice char and toffee notes. Very roasty, long roast bitterness. Very well balanced.
