A very pleasant stout, in 330ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown-red, with a thick yellow-brown creamy head that subsides quickly. Good lacing. Roasted malt, smoky aroma with hints of coffee and chocolate. A little tart in taste, with distinctive, lingering roasted malt and coffee mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Moderate toasted and mild coffee for the malt, light resin for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with hints of wood, brown sugar and cola. Head is large, frothy turning rocky, tan with excellent lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. Bland, flat and a little too fizzy for a Stout, but it does lighten up a bit making it drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dejlig stout. Som en stout bør være. Tilpas sødme, bitterhed, tør. Ikke nogen svinkeærinder i andre retninger end det som det drejer sig om. Muligvis derfor en lidt kort eftersmag men den gør den velegnet som "referencestout".

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
P: Almost pitch black body with a tan micro bubble head.
S: Sweet milk chocolate, molasses, fig pudding, burnt barley and fruit roll ups.
T/M: Chocolate, stale coffee, and sweet dark fruit jam. Oddly present tartness, cherry cola, burnt molasses, burnt barley and finishes dry with long lingering cigar smoke coverage. Body is more light and carbonated than expected.
O: Tartness is really throwing this off. The aroma is very nice and well blended. I could smell this for hours. For the price tag this is not something I would ever purchase again but I enjoyed the experience.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single from the LCBO, with a best before date of 08/2014. Pours a dark brown colour with ruby highlights, showing lots of tiny particles floating around. Frothy beige head, fizzing away slowly, with foamy lace sticking around. Belgian Ale yeast aromas, with mild spicy hops and notes of dark fruits. Oh wow ! What a weird taste. Seems to be all over the place, except in the stout world. Some sourness (but does not seem infected), some yeast, a little tart, some fruits and to save this, watery roasted malts and hints of coffee in the end. Not one I would have again.
