4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque black with a thick mousse like tan head. Presents with an aroma of mocha espresso and cherries and a hint of licorice. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, cherries, and a very slight bitter finish. This is a fantastic beer. I have fallen in love.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from the LCBO. Quicky dissipating tan head on top of a black, thick body. Alcohol is present on the nose, along with dark chocolate, espresso, toffee from the malts, roasty, caramel. Some malty sweetness, dark fruit. Full bodied taste, oily with some bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is overly present, but at 8.8% it is to be expected.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a can, pours inky black with a solid beige head. Intense distribution of tiny bubbles. Malty toasty aroma. Roasted malt and coffee tones with uncommon dryness at this ABV. Expected a syrupy mouthful but no, there is a mystery here in combination of dryness, ABV and mouthfeel. Great stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Stout marron foncée, mousse beige-marron très belle et durable.
Arômes café, toastage, chocolat... va sur le sucré.
En bouche similaire avec une belle amertume, et un côté huileux rappelant l’olive et radoucissant la balance. Fin de bouche assez sèche malgré tout.
Sucrée pour une stout, mais restant balancée.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Probably the best value stout you can get. Perfectly balanced, roasted coffee and chocolate. Medium to thick, velvet mouthfeel that is easy to drink but still satisfying, and not overly sticky or sweet. Pretty much the perfect stout and for its price, unbeatable.

canned. Pours a dark black. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee. Lots of coffee. Flavor is similar. Big coffee notes and dark chocolate sweetness. Mouthfeel is similar to a porter but more substantial. Dry finish. Quite nice for a foreign stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. Dark brown color topped by a rocky beige head. Nice clinging lace. Rich sweet roasted malt aroma. Notes of prunes and roasted nuts. Flavor is dried dark fruit and mocha. Big roasted malt character. Resin hops come through in mid taste. Finish is complex and spicy with a rich cloying aftertaste. The big malty flavor hides the 8.8% ABV nicely. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is sweet and chocolaty, body black and oily. More chocolate in the taste, with very mild coffee bitterness. Sweet and slick, goes down easily. Some very mild lingering bittersweet flavor. Worthy of its reputation.
