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

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

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.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Rich dark colour with thin head. Delivers a lovely caramel aroma with a smooth creamy taste. However, this beer is particularly heavy.

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

(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

cturnbu (2) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2013 does not count
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!

Black pour with a thin lace. Roasted malt with coffee aroma. Strong alcohol feel . Hints of syrup and treacle.

cfrancis (2638) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2013
Pours silky black with a quickly disappearing brown fizz. Aroma is bitter dark chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is astringent booze, roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Pretty run of the mill solid beer but nothing that sets it apart.
