Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2013
A dark reddish brown stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, a sweet mix of chocolate, nuts, caramel, not bad. In mouth, a nice chocolate malt with roasted notes, coffee, butterscotch, oily mouthfeel, classic. On tap at Vices et Versa, Feb. 22 2013.

Sammy (8384) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
Big lasting head. Smooth mouthfeel. Light roasted aroma. Understated stout taste, that becomes sourish at the last quarter of the bottle. Bottle from Veux-Tu.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Deep black pour with a bit of ruby tint. A thin tan head. The aroma has a bit of coffee and dark malt with cocoa and some nice cold coffee character. There is a little bit of earthiness and some light berry character. A touch of fruit and a bit of leathery character as well. Not terribly roasty but still a pretty decent brew.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Café au lait, caramel and roastiness delve into an earthy, leafy finish for a personable drinking experience somewhere between Sweet Stout and Nut Brown Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy veil of foam tops the darkest brown gown.
-The aroma leads you to believe this is going to be sweeter than it is.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-This is highly professional for a first bottled batch.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 2013-03-28. Very dark brown black body, small tan head. Dry toasty roasty aroma is almost brown ale like at first, mild coffee ground notes. Flavour is similar, dry overall, roasty toasty overtones, dry roast lingers in the finish. 6+ Average plus bodied palate. Enjoyable, but a touch too dry overall for my own tastes. Bottle via trade with cfrancis.

DuffMan (6514) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Deep brown with copper highlights and a very bubbly light brown head. Aroma is milk chocolate, caramel, light roast. Palate is thin and over-carbonated, and any hope of finding silky oats is lost. Simplistic.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
Deepest brown with clear edges and a smallish tan head. Burnt cookies, chocolate milk and charred grain meet in this sweetish oatmeal stout that unveils a solid malt depth (molasses, raisins, blackberries, pudding), but could be polished further in terms of mouthfeel. Indeed, the carbonation feels a bit rough, hitting the palate with hard, acidic bubbles that, while they dry out the caramelly notes that could have been tiring, cut into the malt development and make the initially oily, medium palate feel much thinner than it is. Timid leafy hops. A kiss of vanilla seems to linger in the finish. Pretty good stuff that could get up there with many great Quebec stouts based on its complexity if minor adjustments were performed.

blankboy (5957) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Bottle [660ml] shared with GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a very dark brown with red hues and a small lasting frothy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, oatmeal, coffee and just a hint of chocolate. Flavour starts quite sweet but then becomes roasty, dry and bitter. It’s also a bit watery along with some coffee and lactic notes in there as well. Average bodied. Pretty good overall.
