3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Corti Bros. Pours very dark brown with a foamy 3 finger frothy light tan head. Nice aroma of dark milk chocolate with a hop hit. Med body - less as froth goes. Not the best impression there. The flavor is now bitter chocolate - there seems to be a lot of hop in here. Touch of coffee. Iím not sure this works all that well. Lots of flavor - but harsh - and hoppy chocolate? It is growing on me. Seeing it finishing dry, bitter and chocolate. Ok. Iím convinced.

Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with a medium light brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium toasted sweet chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of average duration. Sweet drinkable brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep brown-black pour with a huge rocky brown head. The nose has a touch of light astringency and some roasted malt character. Dark chocolate and some coffee with a touch of light vanilla. Itís got a heavy roasted character and a little bit of soft sourness. It doesnít taste quite infected, but there is a touch of something sharp in here. Heavy roast and a fairly astringent maltiness. Thin bodied and quite astringent - really canít say Iím a huge fan of this. Itís got some potential, but thereís something not quite right about it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big chocolate and roast aroma. This is a dry stout, with cocoa, and fine for a porter. Slightly above average mouthfeel, though dry finish. Dark chocolate looks with lots of lace. Drinkable, likely better with dessert.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Smithís. Pours hazy dark brownish black with a finger of loud brown head and a gusher upon opening. The head is like pouring a Diet Coke, and says to me as I lean in to hear it in an homage to Fred Eckhardt, "Bring me the precious!" Whatever. Nose is assertive hops, dark malt, roasty cacao, blackberry. Tastes dry, roasty dark malty, like a dry stout, with lively carbonation and a heavy and complex palate without being the slightest bit cloying, and a big hop finish, and blackberry notes. This one is great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2013-05-20. Very dark brown body, small quick tan head. 3+ Lightly metallic vegetal notes to the aroma, cocoa. Flavour is fairly syrupy and chocolatey up front. Light bitterness dusty malt. 6+ Average plus bodied palate. Decent, just okay but the bottle is possibly a touch old. Bottle from LCBO

50cl bottle; Pours a mostly opaque dark mahogany with a stringy lacing beige head. Has a sweet toasty dark caramel malty nose with a touch of coffee. Starts with good fullness and dark malty sweetness with a good amount of dark chocolate before a drier bittersweet finish. True to style and enjoyable.
