3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap at Craft Beer Market in Calgary pours black in color with a small beige head that left a few spots of lacing. Aroma is roasted malts with hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is roasted malty bitterness with hints of chocolate sweetness and coffee and mild hop bitterness. Body is a little thin for the style and carbonation is adequate. Otherwise, this is quite a well done stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Kick Off. Black and opaque with an attractive tan head. Okay roasty aroma. Taste starts off nice and creamy and roasty, but finishes a little watery. Tasted almost more like a "Mild Ale" than a stout. Palate feels a little watery too. Didn’t notice any "dryness", this being a "dry stout". A disappointment from a brewery that makes a great coffee porter.

This was an outstanding beer. Big stout with the right size sweetness for me. Notes of vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Creamy in the mouth and a bit of a dry kick in the end. Loved it!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tired this one at the Ottawa Bluesfest, two years in a row. Now it was time to review it. Pours a dark colour with a nice creamy off-white head that is long-lasting and has good lacing. Beautiful coffee smell turning into dark fruits as it breathes. Creamy mouthfeel, but not as thick as expected. Light bitterness with some mild dark fruits. Kind of a refreshing stout, being a little watery.
