Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev - my bottle, via trade with Lubiere. Deep ruby-black (not quite opaque with a large foamy light brown lasting head. Aroma is dry, roasty, some sour cherry and light cola to go with mild coffee and slight sour dark chocolate malt. Flavour - dry! - very dry and oily roast malt, quite bitter, long finish, no fruit in sight. Very astringent mouthfeel, creamy and dry - really fine dry stout - you paying attention, Guinness??

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2006
On tap. Aroma has roast coffee, liquorice and a hearty malt, black as coal, pours a tiny tan head. Flavour is of regular coffee, bitter chocolate, with a malty backbone. Light bodied, but very bitter and dry. Terrific treat! Thanks to Robert and Caroline Hughey and their friend Gary!

Pours a black color with brown highlights with a thick light brown head that leaves lines of lace on the pint glass. Strong and appealing aroma of roasted malt, hops and coacoa. The flavor is very good with its rich roasted malt, powdery coacoa and hops, it finishes bitter. The body is light to medium with a dry, powdery texture and moderate carbonation. A very good stout.

Lubiere (10165) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2006
Deep dark stout with a thick lacing onctuous moka head. A good mix of bitter chocolate and floral hops in aroma, quite american in character. In mouth, dry roasted chocolate malt with a weaker body than expected, classy and pleasant. Bottle from Joanette, 3.29$, in a pint glass.

C’est Guinness, mais meilleur. Très bon goût roti et de café, avec un arrière goût légèrement amère de chocolat noir. Bravo!

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2006
Strong roasted barley in the nose with underlying cereal malt sweetness. Opaque black body is topped by a low, fine bubbled, brown head that recedes to a thin, partial cover and ring. Licorice notes to the strong roasty flavour with some very dark chocolatey bitterness that lasts on the tongue. Very dry medium body with lively carbonation that prickles the tongue. Snifter. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (Peluso, Jan-05).

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
Robe noire aux reflets bruns surmontée d’une mousse beige persistente. Arômes de café, de chocolat et de malts caramélisés. Saveurs de café, malt torréfiés et de houblon aromatique et amérisants. Bel équilibre. Belle rondeur.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2004
1.9 L growler Black hue with no light shining through, long-lasting tan head, foamy and frothy. Chocolate and dry charcoal roast aroma, pretty straightforward and simple, but well focused. Palate is pretty dry altogether, very well built roasty finish, but not much happening before. Malt profile definitely lacks some character and is actually a little bland or at least not so flavourful. Under average example.
