RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2007
Finely brewed stout. The palate was fairly complex with interesting flavours that I have never witnessed in a beer before. I coudln’t even tell what most of them were. Nose was coffee and nuts. Flavour was of caramel, chocolate, coffee and some sort of spice that I can’t quite put my finger on. Not my favourite to drink. The flavour really overwhelms me at times, but I would drink this again.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 I was having one hell of a time getting any kind of scent off this beer. Not much of an aroma, I could dectect some very slight chocolate scents but that was about it. Pour is a nice opaque black with your typical copper/brown head. Now the taste. This stuff is light as hell. This one definately does not share the typical flavor characteristics of a stout. Its smooth but not malty, and has a bit of a sweet taste to it. Overall I would rate this one slightly above average.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Pours muddy black with a large creamy light brown head. Aroma is toasted malts, leather and earthy esters. Flavor is well balanced, rosted malts, and chocolate more apperant in the finish. Medium bodied oliy, softly carbonated a bit of metallic in the finish.

Bottle at Home - shared with Mette - before going to a "Caviar & Champagne" dinnerarrangement. Black - light brown head. Roasted, coffee, high chokolate, sweetness, light hoppy, a bit of vegetable in the aroma. Nice but not fantastic...

bboven (103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Great roasty smell but not a lot of roast flavor. It felt a bit thin for a stout but you’d never know it was eight percent. Would definetly buy again.

Goodgrief (1796) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Dec 2005 - Beer poured dark brown color with almost no head and lacing. Flavor was sweet alcohol dominating the roasty choco malts. Too sweet for me with a bitter, almost astringent finish (not good hoppy bitter either...more like an aftertaste that wasn’t quite right). Mouthfeel was a tad thin. I feel no need to go back to this one.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle: Poured a Dark Brown/Black with a fluffy coffee colored head. The aroma was a dark roasted chocolate and coffee. The flavor was a strong malty, bitter coffee. Just needed some cream and sugar. Overall, a decent beer

Illuminatus (92) - Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
330mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours black, with a thin, short-lived brown head. Aroma is of burnt malt and molasses, but there’s also a touch of an odd vegetal note. Thick mouthfeel, low carbonation. Flavour is sweeter than the average stout, not very bitter, with a touch of molasses. Not overly roasty, but certainly quite rich. Doesn’t show the alcohol, by any means. An interesting stout: won’t be my standard, but it’s a nice changeup.
