MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2009 The Lure:
Vinous fruitiness and chocolatey, caramel malt sweetness unite for a pleasant stout aroma. Its Foreign Stout origins are obvious, though never exaggerated, but cola spiciness tends to reign on the parade.

The Festivities:
Slick roasted cereals are a meal by themselves, creating a slippery mouthfeel. Chocolate-covered grapes benefit from some surrounding roasted bitterness. That cola spiciness reappears in the shadows. An interesting brew, to style, but not branching out into excellence as I would expect some of this brewer’s beers to do.

Transcendence:
Climbing to the roof to see further, but not quite there yet.

Deep black pour with brown highlights and a ring of offwhite lace on top of it. Good aroma of biscuity and roasted malt, chocolate and hops. The flavor has the same elements, biscuity and roasted malts, chocolate and hops. The palate is medium and dry, the carbonation is moderate. This is pretty good, not too sweet for an Extra Stout.

CapFlu (4500) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2005
(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub in Burlington, VT. Oily texture. Pours a brownish opaque body. Nose is very coffee, iodine and vanilla. Thin oily milk finish.

CaptainCougar (7130) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Pours a rich opaque black with dark brown edges and a thick tan head. Aroma is sweet, caramely and very roasty. Body starts rich, robust and sweet with nice dark fruit hints and lots of roasty notes. Finishes dry and crisp, slightly warming. A decently balanced, complex foreign stout.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Arômes de cerises noires, de café, de sucre et de malts rôtis. Une bien bonne base pour une imperial stout. Houblon de soutien.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2005
On draught at the brewpub, 4/16/05. Dark black with some cola-brown tinges on the edge. Greyish-brown head recedes to cover rather quickly. Aroma of lightly burnt malt, hints of tobacco and anise. Cola, coffee, chocolate are all present in good measure here, though the intensity of the aroma could be a bit stronger. They serve the beer very cold here. Flavor starts with soft vanilla beans mixed with milk chocolate covered raisins, very easygoing, pleasant roastiness, not overly drying or bitter. Finishes with a good deal of coffee flavor, ilghtly oily, but again not too bitter as to bore the drinker. Good malt body, which is medium and just a slight touch of thinning as it warms. Low carbonation, fairly low fruitiness for the style, but as the bartender told me, it was kind of a dry stout/foreign stout hybrid (and the distinctions can get pretty blurry between the two styles). Very flavorful, I will reiterate, and I was very impressed to find this so well-made already.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 19, 2005
Draft pint at the brewpub. Completely opaque inky evil black with a tiny brown head that fades into a whisper of haze...sweet espresso-covered chocolate nose, just a bit of sherry...dried fruits, especially prunes, through the lightly vinous body, full and quite roasty, just a touch of chocolate and alcohol, generally very dry towards the finish.
