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.
