northropfrye (2303) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Dark black body, brown head though not lasting and not much lacing. Kind of milk, lactose and cocoa aroma, not too pronounced. Taste is roasty and semi-bitter, not too complex, but nice.

koppertone (59) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours with minimal head. Very dark, almost black chocolate color. Mild carbonation typical for style. Actually fairly light body, less than what I was expecting. Smell of coffee, very light chocolate. Taste of coco, a hint of hops in there, a really pleasant coffee/coco aftertaste that lasts for some time. Have I had better stouts? Sure, but this one is a nice brew.

Gerbeer (1989) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours black with full tan head. Aromas of alcohol, dark chocolate, and dry roasted malts. Flavors of roasted malts and dry cocoa powder. Dry. Somewhat thin. Basic stout. 10

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is very earthy, with toasted malt upfront. Flavour is similar, with notes of toasted malt, earthy notes, and oats. Solid stuff, with an oaty palate. Nothing special, but well-made.

Its a good stout. Smell of toasted malt and coffee. Little bitter with a smooth finish. A nice beer very recommendable.

andrewturba (1072) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with a little light shining through, a medium sized tan head that becomes a bit thin after a while but leaves a decent amount of lace. Aroma consists of roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, tobacco and light black licorice. Flavour is roasted malts, coffee, cocoa, medium dryness, tobacco mild bitter dark malt finish.

dfearnley (1074) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle to goblet Aromas of coffee, roasted malt, and dark chocolate, and milk. It pours a silky black with a 1/2 cm creamy tan head with good retention and some spotted lacing. The taste is primarily coffee, but with a touch of anise, and a little late sourness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a stout and leaves a chalkiness on the teeth. It’s a fine stout, but not spectacular.

3.8
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
shorlin (686) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Black as an Icelandic winter, ring of head, little lacing. Aroma is primarily coffee, roasty. Taste is licorice, roasty, coffee. Palate is not really dry, it’s kind of slick teeth coating. Finish wants to be sort of bitter, but that seems to be more the roastiness finishing up than any real bittering. Overall, pretty good beer.

Dark brown/black pour with a nice tan head, no lacing. Decent malty flavours, some chocolate, but not much else.
