Tasting at Matt’s, can
Brown color, small head. The dark malts are a bit chocolatey. Smooth and dry mouthfeel; a bit chocolatey and roasty, correct bitterness, a bit ashy in the end. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
473ml can. Pours a clear dark ruby with with a tan head. Cocoa, molasses, light ash, lots of toasted dark malt notes, a faint smell of squash, and light straw. Taste wise, medium bodied with molasses, light cocoa, light ash, and strong coffee that leads into dry molasses notes, more black coffee and mineral bitterness in the finish. Really comes across more like a lighter bodied stout than a traditional brown ale, but it’s solid. I’ll definitely buy it again.

On tap @ Stout TO. Pours a near opaque brown with a mocha head. Aromas are nutty and roasty. Tastes are coffee, roasty malts, and light hop bite. Full body, light bitter bite but creamy and smooth. Nice beer.
