UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 hints of chocolate and coffee, OK head, quite crisp on the tongue, layers of flavour including a hint of burnt carmel, don’t drink cold (just slightly cool), a touch hot for stout, tough to beat if you like a good stout

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of molasses, candi sugar, dates. Flavour is roasted with coffee and dark chocolate. Flavour doesn’t come across as sweet as the nose would suggest. Somewhat thin, with a bitter, roasted finish. Good stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at revolution with lactose and chocolate. Aroma of choose, roasted malts and sweet creamy coffee. Taste is coffee, roasted malts, sweet chocolate, creamy hot chocolate and slightly bitter cocoa on the finish. Excellent coffee stout and a joke twist with the addition of lactose leaves a ton of flavor all over but perfect for this time of year and the next 8 months.

I love this beer - definitely one of my favourite darks of any style. You can get a lot of great information from the other reviews here, but my personal note is that temperature plays an especially significant role with this beer - one reason why getting it on tap at a local restaurant isn’t always a great idea.

Small bottle from Hop & Vine Liquor Store in North Burnaby. Color is black, not much head. Coffee on the nose. Coffee and malts in the mouth. Finish is sweet and syrupy. Not bad!
