The darkest stout I have had personaly. Coffee. Dark chocolate and expresso are dominant flavour. Great roast notes and black as oil

asheft (2615) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
On tap at Union 613. Roasty aroma with some red fruit and faint smoke. Opaque black with hazy brown highlights under a persistent, light brown cover. Flavour is probably the roastiest beer I’ve ever tasted, with a pervading black grain astringency. Accents of red fruit. Medium body, slightly tangy, moderate carbonation.

Can from LCBO. Great rich chocolate roasty grainy aroma, with some vanilla. Pleasant roasty taste with some chocolate. Not as rich as the aroma, but good.

473 ml can. Stout brown. Light brown head is thin but laces nicely. Roast and semi-sweet chocolate in the nose. Taste is a little thin and sweet. The roast from the nose is barely present in the mouth.

Strangebrewer (938) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
can. Poured jet black with a thinning mocha head. Sweet and smokey aroma. Full bodied, carbonation is flatter with medium bitterness. Flavour is heavily roasted malts, smokey with a kinda dusty note, some coffee, dark chocolate and fig.

Bendrixian (1215) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Black as night with a very brown head.aroma of tar, roast and chocolate. Shows a little prune and dark stewed fruit notes as it opens up. For a 6% beer it is quite heavy opens and is toasty with a bit of sweetness. I’m impressed.

cfrancis (2595) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Very solid stout. Pours inky, velvet black with a small beige head. Aroma is big, rich roasted malts, light coffee. Taste is again big roasted malts, some smoke and coffee. Nice velvet mouthfeel and great for a 6% beer.

OntBeerDrinker (462) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
Brown head, jet black beer. What I smell I also taste: Chocolate(pudding).roastedness, bitterness, a little burnt wood. I also taste a little water and a little sourness. A little heavy but mostly medium bodied. So so stout but looks great.
