COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The classic Irish-style dry stout is the basic background of this aromatic ebony elixir but deviations may occur from batch to batch as we improvisationally wander through variations on the theme.

Tessic (840) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
This stout poured a deep black colour with a med brown coloured head. To the nose there are scents of coffee, caramel, cocoa and a little vanilla. First sip was full flavoured with tastes of coffee, caramel and roasty malts. Finish was really burnt with black coffee flavours lingering.

JHunter (676) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
Pours a black colour with almost no head. The aroma is bitter dark chocolate and light coffee. flavour is a little thin with a light bitterness and a bit of sourness. not sure if its a bad bottle or just not that good

Elle se présente en robe noire, agrémentée d’un col mousseux volumineux et durable, tout en garnissant le verre d’une dentelle écumeuse. Ses odeurs sont constituées de mélasse, de torréfaction, de café, de grains grillés. En fait, ça sent très bon. Son goût est de la même famille que ce qu’elle dégage comme parfum, accompagné d’une légère amertume . Par contre, elle n’est pas aussi musclée en bouche que ce à quoi on serait porté à s’attendre.

Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2012
Jet black colour with thin tan head. Diacetyl nose. Vinegary and diacetyl taste with sour finish. Worst beer I have ever had. Only reason I gave it a 5 was because of appearance otherwise a complete ZERO.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle thanks to my dad. Very dark brown with lasting mocha head but not much lace. Roasty nose has some coffee and smoke. Medium bodied, fairly bitter with almost no sweetness. Bitter coffee like finish with lengthy bitter finish. Good stuff.

dfearnley (921) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
500mL bottle to glass beer stein Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and corn with barnyard odors. The colour is dark brown/black with a 3cm brown head that settles to 1cm. Taste is roasted or burnt malts, strong coffee, and bitter melon. Surprisingly this is a bit watery too.

Style et résumé: Dry Stout Irlandais mince.
Comment: Bouteille de 500ml achetée au NB, merci Vincent.
Description: Bière brune noire avec une mousse brune. Le nez est de grain rôti avec u chocolat et beaucoup de cerises. La bouche est mince, à la limite aqueuse, il y a encore une fois des cerises, des fruits et un côté aigre. Loin d’être complexe.
Note: 5 /10

HeistAlmighty (1119) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 18, 2011
500ml bottle. Light, sweet coffee aroma of roasted malts. Pours very dark brown to black with an ample caramel coloured head that doesn’t last long. Pretty much no lacing. Taste is more sweet coffee with hints of a medium chocolate. Roasted bitterness on the back of the palate. Flavour a little more thin than I like in a stout but enjoyable. Solid body for a stout, but not especially heavy. Overall, reminds me kind of the traditional coffee I was served in Cuba with real sugar can, but dialed down a bit. That coffee was very strong tasting and this is not as strong, but still in the same kind of vein. A solid effort.

Pours dark, almost black, not much head. Deep aroma of vanilla, some coffee. Reasonably light in the mouth. Not bad.
