1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very dark brown with no head. Chewy, nutty, fudgey aroma. Flat. Nut skins, some fudge notes. This just doesn’t work without carbonation. We tried two different bottles from two different sources and they were both flat, lifeless and quite frankly awful. The brewery obviously has major quality control issues and simply doesn’t care. Atrocious in this day and age.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Nice looking black beer with a thin frothy tan head and some lacing. Aroma is on slightly smoky with slight rubbery notes. Flavor is typical dry stout, slightly bitter but more emphasis on charred malt. Medium bodied, drinks fairly easily with a clean finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Taproom. Black body with thick creamy fingers of dark beige head. Mild dry cocoa-coffee-chocolate aroma. Flavour is quite dry, chalky cocoa up front gives way to muted sweet malt and light roasty bitterness throughout. Palata is quite creamy but a lightness at times makes me suspect that nitrogen plans a role in the creaminess. A pleasant and servicable stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Available at the Taproom in Fredericton, NB. Pours dark brown with a very thick frothy beige head. Aroma is mostly coffee, some dark chocolate and smokiness. Likewise for the flavours, medium bodied, with a super creamy mouthfeel - creamier then chocolate milk. Probably the best micro-brewed stout available in the Maritimes.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Taproom. Looks like nice stout. Nice creamy head. Flavour I found had no malt character, other then strong roast. watery unsatisfying mouthfeel. aroma was burnt coffee.
Like stout a lot, but I found this lacking.,

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the tap room in Fredericton, NB. Smells like coffee and english hops. Dark black with a foamy beige head. Couldn’t be sure if it was nitrogenated or not. If not, kudos to the brewer. If so, I guess kudos as well. Tastes very much like the guiness brewed in Canada without the overly astringent taste and more of a gourmet roast java feel.
