3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can out of a 4 pack. Pours black with a cola like appearance and fizzy head. Love the can by the way. Blacked out version of the signature Hilliards look is quite refreshing. Huge roasted malt aroma with a hint of coffee. A little on the lighter side in body than I expected from this stout, though the flavor is big. Nicely done. Enjoyed this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver; 5.7% ABV
The color is dark brown, just before black, with compact head. Aroma if roasted malt and stale bread. Weak and dry mouthfeel; roasted malt flavor with a bit of burnt malts, burnt bread; ordinary bitterness.
Not in the direction I like.

On tap at Hilliardís, pours a dark brown with a small head. Nose brings out light toasted malt and roast. Flavour reveals a lot of weak toasted malt - not much too this. Balanced well enough, but not much character. Itís okay.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light brown, flat head. Fudgey, lightly chocolatey aroma, porterish. Light body, chocolatey sweet finish, bit thin. Not bad but not super developed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Pours a very dark brown color with a small tan head on it. Nose is roasty with a fair amount of oats to it. Taste is pretty similar, with a lot of roasting to it while remaining with a pretty dry flavor. Fairly smooth and pleasant, though nothing remarkable.
