A rich, dark, coffee-flavoured beer of exceptional depth and complexity; a gold medal winner.

Couleur noire avec un beau col brun. Nez de malt grillé intense et de café. En bouche c’est très délicat, un peu trop pour une stout impérial russe, arôme intense de malt grillée en finale du café qui laisse une moyenne amertume. Une bonne bière mais pas plus!

After work pour at the Old Nick is tall, dark & handsome with a thin cap. The imperial stout washes my worries away. Not as tough as some others of the style but fine by me.

Merci à Boutip pour la canette! Je ne suis pas un grand amateur de stout en général mais je dois avouer que j’aime bien celle-ci. Elle marie de façon efficage sucré, notes plus sombres (café/chocolat) et amertume. Je vais finir la canette avec plaisir!

Can, shared with TylerDurden. Heart dark brown pour with a thick brown head. Aroma and flavour of blackened malt and chocolate, bitter finish with notes of coffee and ash. Solid.

Pours opaque black. Only a tiny hint of brown at the edge of the dark brown head. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Flavour is grainy bitter, some coffee. Body is just barely medium. Finish is alcohol and grain bitterness.

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.

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.

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.

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
