My favourite of the selection at C’est What tap takeover. The cayenne pepper and some roast draws one in. Starts with the cayenne, finishes with coffee. Dark brown. No head. Very good drinkability.Smooth mouthfeel.

Alpha10 (371) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2015
2015/01/10 - Pours a dark brown cola colour with a thin, fizzy, khaki head that quickly disappears. No lacing. Aroma is vanilla, roasted coffee, toasted toffee malt light hops and bitter cocoa. Taste is roasted coffe, bitter cocoa with smokey tones vegetal hops and a spicy chili finish. Mouthfeel is light and a tad watery, with average carbonation and a spicy, bitter finish. Not bad.

asheft (2599) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Cask. Sweet toffee and caramel aroma with low levels of minty and very faintly pine hops. Hazy, ruddy dark brown under bubbly, off white collar. Sweet slightly burnt coffee up front, quickly followed by a jalapeno pepper bite and vegetal character. Low bitterness, faint minty woody hops (northern brewer?). Medium light body. Low carbonation. Lingering spiciness.

jksipa (427) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Can from thr LCBO. Dark cola colour with a tiny khaki head.Nose of coffee, dark chocolate and vanilla with some smokiness. Light sweet roast start with a light bitter base and mild spiciness that ends up in a quite warm peppery finish. Medium sticky mouth that is quite chewy. Good, with the heat from the pepper not overpowering.

jonaldjames (6) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014 does not count
Pour black with a rich tan coloured head. Strong aroma of dark roasted coffee with a hint of vanilla. Very complex taste with coffee, chocolate and a bit of vanilla on the tongue but definite cayenne and pepper on the lips and back of the throat. Not at all unpleasant but prominent enough to notice. Very interesting beer and excitingly unique.

473 mL can. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Nose is smoky cayenne spice, coffee, roasty malts and a touch of vanilla. Mild malty sweetness with a deep, roasty bitter finish and great peppery spice; very savory. Moderate body with average carbonation. Enjoyable and warming.

Listigovers (382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Aroma is roast and coffee, black pour with brown head. Medium to full bodied, spicy flavour is evident, dry roasted finish, fairly interesting.

TheKeywork (24) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Black as coal. Solid backbone. Peppery burn on the lips. Holy stout batman. Awesome that it's now in cans. One of the greatest stouts I have ever drank.

kevinsenn (1176) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Can from LCBO. Creamy roasty coffee aroma. Taste of chocolate and coffee on the first sip. Following sips have much more spice (cinnamon), and a slight burn in the back of the throat. Enjoyable seasonal stout.

Bendrixian (1188) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
can. pours a dark black colour. Aroma is as advertised with coffee, coffee grinds, burnt toast. Medium bodied brew that has more toffee in the flavour than I thought it would but those coffee notes are there. decent enough medium bodied brew.
