3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours "like liquid midnight" so the can says, pretty slick and near black, but actually a very dark clear glowing red, with a medium fizzy but creamy cream colored head. Aroma is nicely roasty, seemingly some roast acidity, touch of creamy chocolate, coffee, hint nutty. Flavor is a touch sour roasty, bright acidic roast flavor, dry and tangy, grassy chocolate, quick finish with some lasting sour cream like flavor aftertaste. Medium bodied, thinner with corse fizzy carbonation.

Coffee and raspberries on the nose. Gives the mouth more coffee as well as must and smoke. Tasty, but could be stronger. A little short in the body. Solid, if overpriced.

it pours dark dark reddish brown with a small head that fades away, it smells like espresso beans, tastes like sweet espresso, a little coconut, some bar milk chocolate, its a tiny bit poppy, feels a bit weak in the mouth, better than i thought it would be and worth trying once out of ontario beer and liquor stores ridiculously small stout selection.
