Poured a very deep tan head that dissapointed in size then lacked any lacing. A thin ring was left on top the darkest of dark browns. Aroma was a bit weak but a deep breath provided some sweet chocolatey roasted malts, plums (maybe dates instead) and a slight dry earthy quality with some molasas. All in all, interesting aroma if you choose to go find it. Flavour is interesting too, but is also too mild. Some chocolate, malts, sweet chewy dirt and hazelnut (thanks brad). Not that I need to be blown away in the flavour category to enjoy a stout but this one is more mouthfeel than flavour. Slightly watery, but some enjoyable bitterness. Mouthfeel is really rich and smooth, but there is an odd pop-like quality to to spritzy carbonation. Seems dry, but is well rounded, medium bodied. Finished with an appealing aftertaste that is mild and malty with a mild lasting bitterness. Non offensive and very easy to drink. Leaves some very weird brown sediment peices - I’ve never seen anything like that before and have no idea what to make of it. Plenty of alien rectangle sediment peices - all the sediment is rectangular...about 0.5mm x 1-4mm in size and they come in two colors - dark and light brown...totally bizarre. Still, I would drink this anytime, providing supply of better English stouts have run out.

Black, this stuff is blacker then black with zero light penetration except for a ruby red hue at the bottom of the glass, unfortunately only a small tan head was produced and completely disappeared after a minute or two. A very pleasant rum raisin sent with a touch of malt makes for a very good and interesting aroma, but it so mild and hard to detect with out snorting the beer up your nose. A smokey hazelnut coffee taste pleasures the mouth but like in the aroma it’s very mild. This is a great tasting brew but because of the week taste and aroma it leaves wanting more out of it, it’s a strange combo of being very complex and interesting but watered down at the same time. And what the hell is at the bottom of my glass, rectangular multi shades of brown chunks I have never seen sediment look like that before

Bottle. Very dark ruby in colour with a medium sized, loose tan head. Milk chocolate and roasted malt on the nose. Roasted malts and milk chocolate again in the flavours accompanied by hints of coffee. Thin and watery mouthfeel with a dissapointingly short finish. Slight warming sensation in the throat.

Bottle from Centra. Good looking, but not much aroma.
A little soot, a little toast, a hint of liquorice. But it is rather thin and watery. Too lightweight, but on a hot day it is probably refreshing.

7 April 2009 on Cardinal. This was the last beer of the night and the notes is influenced by that. It was dark. Nothing more to say, other than it tasted good too.

I tried this beer on January 7, after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a very dark brown with a very thin, short-lived brown head. The aroma was roasted malt, some coffee, and some molasses. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied (weak for a stout) and mildly carbonated. The taste was bitter coffee, and watery. An alright beer, but unlikely to be tried again by me.
