COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not for the faint hearted! Our stout rewards the palate with robust flavor of roasted malts (malts are roasted like coffee beans) and heavy hops. A creamy smooth surprise.

Pours a dark color. Has an aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is not bad. Notes of chocolate, coffee and nuts that quickly dissipated due to carbonation. Overall, not a bad stout.

HKdIPA (287) - HONG KONG - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle from Citysuper at home. Dark dark brown-not quite black pour. Big frothy head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is roasted, oatmeal, slight bitterness. Taste is similar - not that big but not lacking in flavor. Very straightforward roasted stout with oatmeal-y smoothness. Very smooth - malty and oatmeal. Lasting bitterness and unexpected richness. Not too exciting but very solid stout.

Hidden_Pooch (409) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
My palate was rewarded with this beauty. Pours a murky black with a small lighter than usual head. Aroma is of roasted malts, milk chocolate, and brown sugar. Tastes of roasted malts, nuts, chocolate, and sugar sweetness. Has a great coffee taste near the finish. Has more of a porter body, but I won’t complain. Surprisingly this is one stout that isn’t too filling.

Black beauty came to me today in the form of this Stout. And what a fine Stout it be. Almost as black as can be save for some dark rust highlights on this medium tab headed brunette. A whiff yields up some lactose sweetness, oats, caramelised nuts, brown sugar and chocolate. The same rears it’s tasty head upon sipping (or gulping) and delivers a rounded bittersweetness with some subtle coffee pings too. A lighter than expected body, sessiony, with a body more akin to a Porter. Still, no complaints here, a great all-rounder.

CacheManyHose (229) - HONG KONG - NOV 18, 2014
From CitySuper. Pitch black with creamy but thin tan head, spotty legs. Smells of fragrant roast malt, lots of dark chocolate, coffee, hint of grassy/herbal hops. Tastes of roasted malt, medium bitterness, medium+ astringency. Body is very smooth, thin but creamy, very soft carbonation, bitter and slightly acidic finish. An excellent (esp. in aroma and palate) stout, incredibly well balanced.

RhetoricalAns (345) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
650 mL bottle into goblet. Black pour with a medium tan slightly creamy head. Roasted malt, coffee, and tons of dark chocolate. Taste is semi sweet, chocolate, and roast. Medium body and smooth carbonation. Quite excellent.

Bien houblonnée, ronde à souhait doublé d’un col crémeux. Une bière magnifiquement équilibré!

Gluepot (69) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
Roasted coffee and dark chocolate with a nice touch of sweetness. Some hops underpin the classic stout elements and the moderate effervescence and richness make it a nice drinkable beer

Listigovers (345) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
Black pour with a light brown head, roasted malt aroma primarily. Nice up front taste with a light hop presence, creamy and medium bodied, roast malts take a few sips to show up in the aftertaste but afterwards it is actually a little smoky.

SlovakSniper (3285) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
Honnête présentation. Arômes de caramel et de chocolat qui me semblent être contenus par des malts rôtis et/ou des houblons. Saveurs de grains rôtis qui ne semblent pas être soutenus par des houblons. Je dirais même plus que cette bière manque un peu de raffinement dans ses saveurs. Corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement modéré et une texture crémeuse. Finale sur des notes plutôt sèches et surettes de malts rôtis. Ordinaire.
