Too sweet in My humble opinion. Smells a little funny. But taste stays longer than expected. Quite nice but not special :-)

Bottle into pint glass. Looks great, though head gone quickly. smells great. Smooth on the tongue. Sweetness is interesting, but too much to drink more than one. Great as an after dinner drink

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bland stout. Nothing wrong...but much inferior to most stouts. Ingredient line listed tons of stuff that is unnecessary in quality stouts!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle bought from the LCBO inCornwall, ON. Poured into a shaker. Deep brown/black in colour, with a toffee-coloured head that holds for a good while. Delicate lacing on the glass. Aromas of vanilla, alcohol, banana and overripe fruit. Heavy, creamy mouthfeel, prominent alcohol heat. Taste was VERY sweet for a stout - flavours of blackstrap
molasses, raisins, dates, booze...what a Christmas plum pudding would be if it were a stout :-) Really more like a heavy porter than a stout, this beer - not my cup of tea, but glad I got the chance to try it anyway.
