Had this one on vacation at the brewpub. It poured black with a small white, creamy head. The nose was roasted malts . Flavor was a bittery chocolate and roasted coffee. Finished off dry. Good quality craftsmanship.

Draught. Very dark, with ruby tinges, and small tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is string mocha and chocolate. Flavor is similar with a dry roasty finish. Little thin in flavor.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2005
Aroma of biscuity and roasted malt with toasted bread. Deep black pour with a ring of offwhite lace. Good flavor of biscuity and roasted malt, toasted bread and coacoa, bitter finish. Light to medium body with a dry texture and lively carbonation. Good stuff, it reminds me of Rogue’s Shakespeare Stout.

VTHopHead (1503) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUL 22, 2004
Draft at VT Brewers Fest - Black/brown with a light tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, but not strong. Slightly watery. Roasted malt and coffee flavor wih a medium amount of hop bitterness. Finish is thn and bitter.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Sample at the Vermont Brewers’ Fest. Thick black. Nose very faint, roasty. Lightly vinous, medium bittersweet chocolate-coffee body, weak, with a bitter finish. Too light to support the bitterness, too little sugar.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2004
Plenty of roasted malts and light sweetness in the aroma. Opaque black with thin white fully diminishing head. Simple and roasty with slight sticky malt sweetness. Low carbonation and still mouthfeel with somewhat watery body. On tap at the Vermont Brewers Festival.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2005 On tap at the brewpub, March 2004:
Slight smoke emanating from an oily, roasted skin...Flat and headless, the sweet charcoal slowly burns...The morning after an uneventful campfire...2.6/5

On tap at the Blue Mermaid in Portsmouth, NH, December 2005:
In much better condition this time, or maybe it has simply improved? Very well-roasted malts coupled with coffee bean sweetness and grapey fruitiness. Quite strong carbonation, but not nitroed (woohoo!). A decent, well-brewed, straightforward stout. 3.4/5

Pours black with a small white, creamy head. Aroma is all roasted malts, maybe a tinge of bitter chocolate in the background, too. Taste is bitter chocolate, roasted coffee. Nice dry finish on this one, too.
