herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, - JAN 27, 2013
On tap. Black pour, brown head. Aroma is sweet, mostly dark chocolate. Only a hint of coffee, some black cherry. Nice creamy full body. Smooth and sweet. Simple but satisfying.

TheJester (1777) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
341 mL bottle. Label says 5%. The right colour, but not much head. Coffee grounds in the nose, with a hint of something metallic. Coffee up front in the flavour, but it finishes really quickly. Nothing there to balance or enhance the coffee.

shaynsawchuk (425) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
341 mL bottle. Pours a thick opaque black with a short lived khaki head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, subtle roast and woods. Creamy mouth feel, mild sweetness and a well balanced, bitter and roasty finish. Quite clean. Moderate plus carbonation. Tasty.

Hateball16 (105) - - NOV 2, 2013
Huge coffee chocolate and vanilla in the nose, black opaque, little head. Little acidic on the palate, moderate carbonation, lots of espresso and dark chocolate flavours, and a long dry bitter finish. Good stuff.

Flavor is coffee, chocolate, oats, metallic flavor. Finish is dry, coffee, roasted grains, cereals. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, weak carbonation.

czar (4110) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
cask days 2013 @ beau’s oktoberfest, vankleek hill. very dark brown pour with a small light beige cap leaving some lacing. loads of chocolate, mostly bitter, few coffee notes - no vegetal whatsoever, hint of oatmeal sweetness and body - light to medium. moderate carbonation, bittering coffee finish. nice although coffee was rare and maybe a tad sweet for style. enjoyed it.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 15/20
neongolden (373) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
(Cask at Victory Cafe, Oct 5 2013) Poured black with a ring of tan bubbles. Aroma relatively faint, chocolate, some roast, not much coffee. Flavour had chocolate, roast coffee, some slight dark fruit, slight roasted malt. Finish was fairly dry, bitter, roast coffee. Mouthfeel watery, not rich like an oatmeal stout should be, maybe the cask wasn’t at its best but this was unobjectionable and uninspiring.

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
A dark brown stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with light grassy notes, coffee, OK. In mouth, a watery coffee stout with grassy and celery notes, OK. Cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest 2013.

Frothmeister (544) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
341ml bottle. Pours black with a one finger mocha coloured head. The nose is molasses, dried fruit, cocoa, coffee, and light caramel. Mmm. Medium bodied with a slight tang that lingers throughout until the finish, light sweetness, molasses, dried fruit, light smoke notes, with bitter coffee and cocoa in a lengthy finish. Could be a little heavier body-wise, but solid nonetheless.

ads135 (2814) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - APR 14, 2013
Dark and rich, though the roasted caramel malts tend toward the burned in the aftertaste. Chocolate and coffee. Tan head and a nice black appearance.

kevinsenn (1022) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2013
On tap at The Bent Elbow. Opaque black with a tan head. Aroma of sweet coffee. Taste is smooth with oats, chocolate, coffee, and a dry finish. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. A winner from F & M.
