Pour is motor oil black without much in the way of head. Nose is chocolate, coffee, roasted grain. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly watery, roasted grain and chocolate, with lingering coffee and chocolate on a moderately dry finish. Decent but unremarkable.

I am not a stout person, but this is a great beer. Not overwhelming sweet at all, just the right balance of hops, it had aroma of oats and coffee. Not overly carbonated and lively, which plays in its favor along such thick body and rich taste. Its head is brownish and short living, leaving you wanting more.

Comes in their Holiday Gift Pack for Christmas 2014 (with 2 other cans of different beer and a glass). Almost black coloured with no highlights. The head is pretty creamy, quite brown, long lasting and laces up the glass. Roasted malt aromas with sweet yeast, notes of chocolate and coffee. The taste starts off with this sweetness, then the burnt malts appear to finish with a little bitterness. Hints of coffee, chocolate and the malt lingers. A nice looking stout that starts off nicely, but gets a little too sweet to enjoy more.

Can from the brewery. Incredibly black pour, with a big dark brown head. A solid roasty, cocoa nose, with some coffee, and chalkiness. Creamy, soft mouth feel, with a medium carb. Sweet cocoa, very roasty finish. Lingering notes of coffee, and more chalkiness.

473 mL bottle. Pours thick and black with a dense head of khaki. Aromas of coffee, cocoa, roast, some moderate earthy/spicy hopping. Taste is quite dry, reasonably bittered and finishes heavy on the roast. Moderate body and above average carbonation. Nothing flawed, nothing memorable.

Pours blacker than coal. Oops. That was a lazy metaphor. But not as dull as the review below mine. Yawn. Sampled at Tall Boys carnival mini beer fest hipster happening. A decent stout that I enjoyed more than their other offerings.

The St. Thomas, Ont. brewery has produced a six-per-cent alcohol stout that has a 43 IBU rating on the bitterness scale. It’s black and has a coffee aroma, while coffee, dark chocolate, smoke and oatmeal are the prime components of the flavour profile. It’s okay, but nothing exceptional.

Lubiere (10654) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2013
A deep viscous dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, a smooth bitter chocolate with vinous, floral hops, coffe grinds, great. In mouth, a smooth powdery chocoolate malt with grassy hops, smooth and classic.
