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.

On tap at Volo. Pours a very dark brown with modest-sized tan head. Aroma is fairly mild with sweet cocoa and a little anise. Taste is bittersweet cocoa and coffee. Fairly modest body. Not bad.

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 (9866) - 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.

Sammy (8527) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
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.

solidfunk (3854) - 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.

C’est What? (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

The beer pours a very dark brown, almost black with a creamy tan coloured head. The aroma was roasted malt, nuts, and coffee. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is roasted malt and coffee. Thin and bitter is the best way to describe this.

Tessic (840) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2012
This stout poured pure used motor oil with a low down, septic looking head. Tan in colour with no lacing what-so-ever. Scents include smoke, dark cocoa, earth and licorice. First sip was thick and rich with heavy smoke flavour and added tastes of Melloid cough candies and soy sauce. finish is smoky burnt with a medium bitterness.
