Decent stout. Better than a guiness. A little malty, a little nutty bitterness. Some roast aromas. Not very sweet really. Pours pretty black. Notes got sketchy by this time of night. On tap at brewpub.

Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti, léger café et de chocolat noir avec des notes de houblon herbeux aux notes florales et quelques traces de chocolat au lait. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture crémeuse. Goût légèrement lactique de chocolat au lait avec de faibles traces de crème brûlées et de métal (azote) lors de l’entrée en bouche rapidement suivi d’un goût de malt rôti et un léger goût de chocolat noir puis en finale un moyen goût de café s’installe avec une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux petites notes florales. Post moyen-long, légèrement amer de rôti, léger de café avec des notes de chocolat noir et de houblon herbeux. (hiver 2005-06)

I didn't find this stout to be all that sweet, really. But it was rather coffee-ish. It was more like a dry stout. Smooth and mild.

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2004
Jet black, opaque, with a thick, creamy, nitro, tan coloured head. Coffee / cappaccino and chocolate aroma. Slowly growing coffee and chocolate bitterness, drying out on the finish. Dry and lightish mouthfeel. On tap at the brewpub.

Ungstrup (29107) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2005
A beutiful black beer with bubbles that runs downwards as a real stout, top that off with a thick creamy brown head. The aroma is slightly roasted, while the flavor is lovely sweet and roasted, combined with notes of nuts. The mouthfeel is very smooth. I have a hard time really describing it - but it is a really nice stout.

Pours a black color with a medium creamy light brown head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Enjoyable flavor of chocolate, roasted malt with lactic notes. It’s a nitro stout, so the palate is very smooth and creamy but the body is a tad to light. A good easy to drink stout.

Gorbalev (2908) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2006
. On tap at the brewpub. Pitch black, creamy big tan heads - looks about as it good as it can, I loved it. Nitro kills aroma - mild roast, but that’s it. Very dry, roast, oatmeal taste. Medium creamy body, but despite the nitro (or accentuated by it) it is too thin. Stays dry to the end. A very tasty session stout.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2006
Coffee and dark chocolate aroma, dark brown,small toffee head. Flavour is a full roast coffee, chocolate comes along afterward. Very sour/bitter, with a much appreciated dry finish. Quite nice.

csbosox (1217) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JAN 17, 2007
On tap at LCB in Oct ’05. 5oz sample. Looks black, at the bar, with a frothy, khaki head. The head sticks around and around like a nitro pour, but I am not sure it was. Coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and roasted malt aroma. The external cig smoke is a bit overwhelming. The taste is sweet, initially with roasty, chocolate, and coffee flavors, in fact, a lot of coffee. There is some bitterness that gives it espresso notes. The finish is moderately bitter. Full body.

Sammy (8382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2007
Above-average beer (though only average stout) enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub.Cold coffee that has been roasted but is creamy, definately affected by the nitro-tap treatment. Astringent bitter yet still well malted. Coffee aroma. Grainy and creamy mouthfeel. Surprising 33 IBU and under 5% abv.
