Bottle, shared with my father-in-law. Nice dark pour, brown head. Lovely balanced roast and dark malts, smooth and rounded, deep flavours. Alley Kat really nailed this one. Very nice stout. mcberko (17345) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014

Black pour with medium sized beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and faint caramel. Taste of roasted malts, unsweetened chocolate, slight caramel, lactose.

Pours a very dark(just about opaque) brown with a good sized light brown head that settles at a decent rate and leaves little lace but has great legs. Aroma is good amounts of roasted malts, cocoa, and coffee notes. Flavour is dry/bitter roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, a nice smooth
velvety mouthful but maybe a bit thin. pintbypint (3584) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
650ml brown bottle. Black pour with a tiny light brown cap and minimal lacing. Nose has cocoa and fudgey notes with roast. Taste has roast and fudge/chocolate. Some hop bitterness in the end. Roast and cocoa and some hops in the aftertaste and maybe a hint of alcohol. Good mouthfeel, creamy but not thick, carbonation is mild. Overall a good strong stout.
