JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2010
Deep black pour. The nose is full of molasses and cocoa. Light chocolatey character with a touch of acidity and a bit of light roast. Simple brew but a well-constructed dry stout.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
On nitro tap at the brewpub Pours with a black body and a lasting tan head. Aroma of coffee, light smoke, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is coffee, roast, bready, toffee. Lively bubbles and, like a few of their other beers, a slightly acidic finish that makes me suspect dirty tap lines.

DuffMan (7037) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2009
Part of a tasting tray sampler at the brewpub. Dark mahogany with a dense mocha head. Roasty coffee and bitter chocolate aroma and flavours, hints of cherry fruit. Dry bitter end. Probably my favourite of the bunch.

lusikka (6575) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Draught @ Thirsty Bear Brewing Company, San Francisco. Rated on 13.10.2012.
Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, tobacco and strong ash notes. Flavour is pretty similar; roasted malts, really strong tobacco notes, grassy hops and dark chocolate. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a bitter finish where tobacco comes through even more than before. Good.
