FRom a party pig. Looks as black as the night. Strong aroma of roasted malts. Flavour is very malty characterised by chocolate and particularily in the finish. This is a great stout.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2009
Sampled at Wild Rose brewery. pours dark black with only a hint of red. The brew master gave me a L.E.D. flashlight to try to see light through it and I could not unless I held it to the very edge. Has a mocha coloured head that leaves rings all the way down my glass. Aroma has tar, mixed with chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Tastes fairly smokey with dark chocolate, black coffee, oatmeal, and loads of tar on the finish. Really thick, bitter-sweet stout. Great carbonation. Mouth coating goodness. I brought home a party pig of this because it was so good.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2009 Had on tap in the taproom as well as at the Palomino downtown. Absolutely magnificent. A wonderful beer from Wild Rose. Jet black...creamy tan coloured head. Aroma of malts roasted extra long. Burnt flavours ad hint of oatmeal is present. I would love to drink this beer all the time.

Proteus93 (65) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2008
- served on draft at the location in Calgary. Opaque... jet black, with a light tan, creamy, and sticky head. Malt roast, a subtle chocolate... a nice, softer aroma. Some modest notes of whole wheat. Deep roasted malts, slightly burnt flavours. Some mellow espresso flavours. Chocolate is kept to a minimum on the palate, and oatmeal is also low-key and pleasant. Creamy, round... dash of carbonation, but barely. Easy going Alcohol, a great session selection - served in true blue 20oz pints, and easy to do a few of them.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008
Draught at the brewery
Black color. Some aroma of roasted malt. Medium body, with a quite strong roasted malt flavor, and a light sourness. Not as much creamy as promised.

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
(Draught) Sampled on February 10, 2008, at the brewpub. Thin body for a stout. Monir oatmeal flavour with a good graininess but fairly plain overall.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2008
[796-20071102] Tap @ Wild Rose (Calgary, AB). Dark malt and coffee chocolate aroma. Dark brown black body with a medium-lasting brown creamy head. Malt coffee flavour is dark roasted. Full body. Good stout, nice coffee qualities.

GregClow (2879) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle (by hand, I believe? I got it through somewhat mysterious means...). Deep brown-black body with a thin tan head. Roasty aroma with some fresh ground coffee and a very faint tartness. Body is lighter than expected, with fairly low carbonation. Lots of roast in the flavour, with a fairly dry finish. Seems more like a dry stout than a sweet, to be honest, but still OK.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2007
Plenty of roasted malts in the nose with underlying toasted and chocolate notes. Opaque black body looks oily and is topped by a dense, fine bubbled, tan-brown head that lasts well and coats the glass. Flavour delivers on the promise of the nose - chocolate and toasty notes underpin a dry roasty bitterness. Medium body is very dry with moderate carbonation although texture is perhaps a bit oily. Sampled on tap at the brewery tap room.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Black body with a good creamy tan head (4+). Very roasty aroma, roast barley, modest malt underpinnings. Flavour is similarly roasty, fairly bitter roast. Mild underlying malt is a bit overwhelmed by the roast. Average palate is on the thin side of acceptability for a stout. Pretty solid, straightforward stout, but not entirely to my personal tastes.
