Sask89 (514) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - APR 7, 2012
Pours pitch black with a thin creamy mocha head that quickly disappears entirely. Aroma is of dark chocolate, roasted grains, liquorice, and a subtle but noticeable cranberry/cherry scent. Taste is mild, a little fruity and chocolatey sweet, not bitter at all really. Full bodied, thick and creamy on the palate, with soft carbonation. Overall a nice imperial stout, different but average.

AleRider78 (670) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
Had a pint at Sir John A in Ottawa Has a creamy brown coppery head, very small. Extremely dark appearance, almost completely black. Thick dirty lacing. Faint aromas of chocolate and malts, not much else to me. Flavours are abundant: chocolate and roasted malts dominate. The cranberry is coming through just slightly but noticeable enough. Mocha, toffee and nutmeg round it out. Coffee taste as well. Tasty and has a thickness in the mouthfeel. A hint of alcohol is apparent. Really good brew on a cold winter day.

Aroma is of cranberries, dark chocolate, roasted notes, caramel, dark fruits and a bit of alcohol.

Not so easy drinking.
