473ml can pours black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee with some roasted grains. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with some dark fruits as well and a light roasted grain and coffee bitterness. Full bodied with light carbonation. Quite a nice stout at a very reasonable price. Well done, Wellington!

473ml bottle. Black with thin beige head. Burnt coffee, toffee, cocoa, oak, dried plums. Some sweetness in the malt accented by dry, coffee-like bitterness. Full-bodied and boozy.

chris__hartley (274) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
It pours opaque black with slight brown highlight; the head is tan and foamy. The aroma has notes of: coffee, milk-chocolate, toffee, baked bread, and sweet grains. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium bitter; there are notes of: milk-chocolate, coffee, charcoal, alcohol, and slight berry notes. The palate is medium-full bodied, has a thick mouth-feel (light carbonation), and a long bitter finish. Overall, a very well priced beer for the quality, could easily recommend it as a staple-drink.

bth122 (1138) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Can while in Toronto. A good deal at liquor store for 2.80. Pours a thick black color. Medium head. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, coffee bean. A pretty smooth, rich, complex stout. Would get again.

jdobbs (286) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Coffee, dark chocolate and toasted malt aromas dominate this. Medium coffee bitterness and light chocolate/malt sweetness balance out well in here. A very nice, bold flavor. Really enjoyable and easily worth trying again

Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
This is a dark brown, almost black beer with a thin tan coloured head. The aroma is ALL about the coffee. There is some roasted malt and toffee in the air, but the coffee overpowers all of them. The flavour is more of the same. The roasted malt/coffee combination overpowers them all.

Rich dark colour with thick creamy head. Delivers a lovely caramel aroma with a smooth creamy taste. However, this beer is particularly heavy.

Ferris (2000) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
Draft - Bitter chocolate and coffee. Jet black with a thick brown head. Coffee, dark fruit and a nice bitterness that lingers. Medium body, a nice stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thorongil2 (1078) - , Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
(can) clear very dark colour with a medium tall brown head; faint aromas of roast, metal, stewed fruit; watery palate; mostly sweet simple flavour with a long light bitter finish, disappointing for an imperial stout

Aroma is slightly fruity with a fairly robust chocolate smell. Flavour is well balanced and one of my favorite stouts. Aroma, alcohol taste, malts, etc. Is just right and not overdone. Well done!
