2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Pours nearly black with a small, flimsy, mushroom-colored head. Good creamy retention. The aroma offers light notes of dark chocolate and espresso, but is mainly just bland as I had to really dig my nose deep into the glass to pull out anything at all. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is mildly roasty and perfectly balanced, but for the most part, itís just bland, mundane and fairly lifeless. Finishes crisp and a tad roasty, but mostly just clean.

Bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a small sized head. Blah ... muted roast and chocolate. Maybe I did it wrong - I see in the description to enjoy ice cold straight from the bottle ....

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Several bottle samples at the LCBO on WIlson as I explained what the term and style was to the friendly rep they sent out. Its black without much head, or unfortunately much taste either. Itís not up to the style. Better than the stout they serve here.A bit thin and overcarbonated.
