Aroma is a bit weak. Looks great .. dark as it should be small creamy tan head. Leaving good some lace. Balance taste of coffee with a milky texture. Nice but better beers in Montreal.

Opaque black, thick creamy foam. Very decent appearance. Milky, roast and toffee like aroma. Thick , juicy brew . Oily , creamy texture . Black clean roasts .Different, but very nice.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Draft... Pitch black with a nitro-induced, creamy, light brown head. Chocolate, vanilla and berry notes in the aroma. The flavor is fairly well-balanced and a bit burnt. A touch woodsy. Light bodied and silky with pillow soft carbonation. Lengthy, bone-dry finish with some charred notes.

On tap at the brewpub. The body was black with a small khaki head. The aroma was coffee with a little bit of chocolate. The taste was weak coffee with more mild chocolate. The body was smooth and mild overall. Leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Very black and opaque thick creamy brown head. Somewhat sweetish, medium bodied. Obvious oatmeal flavour, good bitterness. Well balanced very smooth.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 11, 2009
On a nitro tap at La Cheval Blanc. Pours a deep black with a medium tan head. Deep roast aromas and a touch of chocolate. Thin (due to the nitro) and smooth. This might be better without the nitro. Nice roast flavors. Ends with a long roasty bitterness. At 4.5% this would make a decent session stout (if one could tolerate the bedlam that is La Cheval Blanc’s bar scene… I couldn’t), though the bitterness may be a bit heavy handed for that. Tried all 8 of their beers on tap when I went, and this was the clear winner, by quite a bit.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan, creamy and dense head. Aroma is roasted malty, liqourice and dark breadish. Toffee, liqourice and dark malty flavoured. Bitter and dry malty finish.
