On tap at L3B in Toronto .. this was just OK .. though better than the amber. It lists on here as a stout but found it to be a roast, malty with cocoa notes dunkel. Overall, OK .. not sure if I would go looking for this beer

Tasted as part of a sampler flight at one of the Montreal locations. I won’t go into specifics on this particular beer because I was disappointed equally in everything that was tasted at this place.

Pours a clean copper colour with a small beige head with minimal lacing. Fruity dark malt aromas with some yeast. Nice roasted malt with a little hop in the finish, adding some mild bitterness. Light molasses in the aftertaste, once it warms up. Decent brown ale with fruity notes.

Sampled at Toronto Festival of Beer. Dark brown and headless. Burnt malt aroma with caramel, dark fruit and scorched earth/sulphur. Sweet malty taste. Slick with a short, dry finish.

On tap at the Vieux Montreal location. Well, it’s not a good start to Elgin with an identity crisis. I think this is more stoutly in character, but unfortunately a weak one. Stale coffee with a cola-like sweetness and a thin mouthfeel.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
4 oz sample at Ottawa brew pub. Stout?? Scotch?? OK...clear deep mahogany with an off white rim. Slightly metallic with some fair coffee and roasted malt notes, lightly fruity, a little caramel, a touch of chocolate, weak. Medium body, medium and gentle effervescence. Reasonable roasted malts, a bit weak, hints of caramel, meh; dry with a little bitterness and a not unreasonable roasted malt finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at the Ottawa brewpub - not sure it should go here since this was definitely not a stout but i will have to follow-up. Pale brown with a biege head. Semi-roasted malt, slightly fruity, nutty. Moderate carbonation, mild, slight bitterness, some cardboard, becomes somewhat dry.
