Stewiacke (4) - - AUG 29, 2014 does not count
Draft – This stout seems to change keg by keg even if only slightly, usually with a fruity finish from time to time. Not the most interesting beer I've ever had, but not bad at all.

Beer is poured a very dark brown with a difinite blackening around the edges and a creamy dark tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, nuts, and coffee. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is nutty malt, with roast and coffee. Quite enjoyable.

Grey Cup 2012. Sample tray. Nitro. Good roast malt nose. Lots of raostiness in flavour. Soft easy drinking unassuming beer.

Draught at C’est What, Toronto
Black color, with creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, roasted nuts, a bit buttery. Lowly carbonated; it has a decent flavor of roasted malts and coffee, it’s also a bit buttery; correct bitterness, and some ashes in the end.

Lovely black pour, thick tan head that lingers. Aroma of roasted malt, a little sweet caramel, coffee. Mouthfeel is a little watery, bitter roasted malts and balanced finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft sample at Henry House. Aroma is not strong, light roasted malt smell. Black colour with a think cappuccino head. Taste was roasted malt, but rather thin. It was wasn’t a bad taste, but there wasn’t enough of it. Medium body. Overall, this had potential but it needed to deliver more.
