4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - puts a deep black-brown clouded ale in the glass with a 2 finger tight pored tan cap - which laces up the glass sides.a aroma is somewhat understated for what awaits the palate. Big roasy flavour (coffee/coca) with complimentary bittering and s lovely mouthfeel/body from terrified grain. light smoke tones...long lush wet finish.
A great impy.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Dark fruit, chocolate and smoke. Jet black with no head. Smoke, coffee and roast malts with a long roast finish. Smoke is nicely balanced and not dominant making this a very interesting and complex beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from LCBO. LCBO-applied sticker says 8.4%, which means that’s what their lab tests determined (that’s quite far off from the advertised 10.4%...). Pours black with a thin brown head. Roasty smoky aroma. Complex taste of dark fruits, roasted barley, smoke, licorice, caramel, and brown sugar. Thick body. Overall good, but the smoke was a tad too much for me personally.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with just slight head that dissipates without trace. Aroma has some smoke from the peat malt but it is subdued. Taste has some licorice and light chocolate. Smooth and sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Late afternoon pour as I fire up the BBQ is death metal black with a lush mocha cap. Taste is full & round: I get dark chocolate, sweet coffee & rich malt. The chocolate comes on strong as you work your way down the glass. The peat smoked malt is muted. Interesting brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Stout intéressante! Ce n’est pas mon style préféré, mais je trouve tout de même que c’est une bonne bière. Elle est plutôt sucrée et elle va probablement plaire à certains amateurs du style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice smoky stout. Pours pitch black with pillow of mocha head and a carpet of mocha lacing. Peat and smoked malt give this a salty flavour that leaves this with almost no sweetness. Smoky and peat is just enough to to overpower though. Some booze here and a very nice hint of citrus hops. Some dark chocolate as well. All elements come together well here and consistency is spot on for style - thick, even creamy but not syrupy. Soft carbonation. Bottle from lick-bow.
