3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep espresso, english toffee malt and skunky black patent malt aroma. Pure black appearance with a thin foam. Odd, foreign black malt dominates the palate. Other notes of toffee, mocha, soy sauce, and burnt resin hit the tongue. Overall, not too impressed with this one. Very funky/odd overtones. Iíve had better Canadian Ales. C rating.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: (As noted) strong notes of espresso with dark chocolate. Itís not an overly complex nose, but itís rather inviting. Appearance: Thick, oily black pour with ample mocha head up front which dissipated into a thin skin of mocha with bubbly patches. Flavor: Like an espresso beer, but with a very authentic coffee flavor- never comes off like an artificial additive. The flavor starts off very lively, but finishes more on the smooth chocolate side of things. Palate: Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A lovely, accessible stout. Has a real feeling of purity and nuance that gives it a quiet beauty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a fine tan head. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, toast, and a bit of molasses. Taste is initially nicely malty-sweet, leading to chocolate, coffee, toast, and slight herbal notes. Not too sweet, making this a perfectly balanced stout, and quite substantial with medium-low carbonation and a big body for the abv.
