Pours opaque black with zero light transfer. Thin tan head, little retention and no lacing. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate, malts and faint vanilla and smoke. Flavour is predominantly cocoa, espresso, burnt sugar, and subtle vanilla. Lingers molasses and some ash. Medium body and lively carbonation helps to mask the warming alcohol finish. Excellent Stout, will have to revisit this one.

[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

GregClow (2990) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle sample at Brewer’s Plate (Apr 18, 2012). Very dark almost-black body with a deep tan head. Dry roast aroma with lots of coffee & cocoa. Big roasty flavor with charred malt up front, dark chocolate in the middle, and back of throat coffee tartness to finish. Quite good!

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.

Bendrixian (1344) - 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.

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.
