Pour ruby black with big crema head. Aroma is of chocolate, cranberry, toffee, and roasted malts. Tastes of dark chocolate, cranberry, toffee, and brown sugar. Has a heavy dry body with low carbonation and a bitter cranberry aftertaste. I would love to grow one of these beards for the Winter.

Not so easy drinking.

Couleur rougeâtre tirant vers le noir avec une belle effervescence! Une belle mousse beige tout au tour du verre. Petit odeur chocolaté, d’alcool et de petit fruit rouge. En bouche, c’est sucrement doux. Les papilles ressentent conjointement le chocolat et le canneberge! Une belle rondeur, c’est crémeux, un finale assez sèche de chocolat au lait et on y ressent un peu l’alcool mais nullement agressante. Un bon petit dessert!

On tap at the Old Toad. Pours black with tan head that disappears and leaves very little trace. Aroma is berries, licorice, chocolate and roasted. Flavor is light to medium bitter, light to medium sweet, chocolate and roasted. Nice malty and oily. .

Dark black unfiltered stout. Thick brown foam head that dissipates quickly. Dark bittersweet chocolate aroma some faint berry fruit notes. Fairly dry and simple flavour chocolate and malt. Alittle yeasty and spiriteous. Pleasing enduring aftertaste.

Drinking a bottle I got Christmas 2014. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and faint sour notes, that I can’t quite peg as cranberry. Taste is much the same, sweetness upfront, with a chocolaty body with vanilla and sour undertones, fading to a more distinctly cranberry backend, and a bitter chocolate aftertaste. Body is smooth and had some weight to it, but lighter than many of this style. From what I remember from other tastings of fresh bottles, a year of aging has softened the cranberry notes, and made this much more balanced. I liked this much more than I have in the past.

Pours is dark black with a medium beige head. Nose of coffee, chocolate and a bit of dark fruit (probably cranberry) and caramel. Medium sweetness creamy mouthfeel, small to medium bitterness at the end. A bit of alcool coming throught but not too much. So well balanced. Very good!!!!
