Lubiere (10465) - 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.

Ok drinkability, possibly one of the better ones I have had from this brewery. Decent amount of smoke to make it interesting. A bit thin mouthfeel. Lots of licorice in the finish. Bottle at Stouts Irish Pub in Toronto.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2013 Rerate from a bottle. Pour black as coal with a tight dark brown head. Rich cocoa and roast aroma with notes of licorice and some softly savoury character. A bit of rich molasses and some chewy sweetness. Lots of dark chocolate. The muddiness that I got last time is gone and this is a much nice pint than that one. Lots of roasted malt on the finish. Pretty nice robust stout. Tap at Volo. Deep black pour with a tight brown head. The aroma is of milk chocolate, cocoa, malted milk and a little bit of light roast. As it warms up, I get a bit of an odd dullness that is really hard to identify. A touch of espresso as well that is pretty nice. There is a little bit of berryish character that I enjoy but the palate is surprisingly light and there is a little bit of a papery flavour that I could probably do without as well. There is a roasted grain tartness and a little bit of bitterness. It starts out strong, but it kind of limps along at the end. 6 4 6 3 11

2012-03-12. Black body, nice small brown head. Very Dry very roasty aroma. Flavour is similarly quite dry and roasty. Average to thin body for my preference for a stout. Bit simplistic but a decent stout, though too dry for my taste. On tap at Volo, Toronto

[4330-20120312] Tap. Lightly burnt wood roast malt aroma. Black body with a long-lasting foamy dark brown head. More roasted malt in the flavour is balanced nicely with some wood and chocolate chips. Full body. Delicious! Great balance, not too much roast or other notes. (7/4-/9/4/17) 4.1

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
Draught at C’est What. Dec. 30, 2011. Pours a very dark brown with ruby hues and a small quick-diminishing creamy light-brown head. Slightly mild aroma of roasted malt and coffee -- that’s pretty much it, I’m not really getting anything else. Slightly watery flavour of roasted malt, coffee, a bit of caramel, very light leafy hops and light roasty bitter finish. Average bodied. Pretty good, a decent Stout.

solidfunk (4491) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Smell is awesome on this one. Very nose heavy stout. Pours with big foamy head, medium lacing. Aroma has smoked malt and coffee, lots of nut. All without even having a sip. Taste is very light nutty bitter - not much of a leave. On tap at Get Well.

robinvboyer (3264) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
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.

probstblueribbon (3067) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
Half pint at the Loon. Deep brown black with a small mocha head. Reasonable chocolate, lightly smokey, cold and tight, a touch of tang, decent. Medium body and moderate carbonation, a little thin. Decent coffee and chocolate a touch smokey, a little molasses, fairly stern, not awesome; dry with a weak finish. Meh.
