On tap at Standing Stone, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of coffee, followed by oats and a touch of chocolate. Flavour brings out dry coffee upfront, immediately followed by oats and dry unsweetened chocolate. Quite robust and coffee-centric, while still being light-bodied. Good one.

This rich black stout has a strong flavor of coffee. Rich and bold flavor makes this beer very flavorful. Not too heavy and very drinkable it makes a great beer to pair with desert.

Pitch black - tan head. Lots of fresh cold-pressed coffee flavour. The coffee adds lots of chocolate and vanilla notes and really smooths out the roasty edges found in the base beer. Not vegetal at all and really lovely and earthy. Great coffee stout. Could be fuller bodied, but it’s nice nonetheless.

Really enjoyed this one at SAVOR - draft pour. Visually, it is a dark brown, almost black color with a tan head. Aroma is straight up Java coffee. Nice dark chocolate, espresso notes. This was pleasing on the nose and mouth.
