Rich dark brown coloured body with a nice, three to four centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of cream, raisins, roasted malt, oatmeal, alcohol and a dose of pit fruits - nice and strong. Medium-bodied; Strong roasty flavours of malt, caramel and earth while also showing some milk and cream flavours, a dose of raisins and figs and a touch of cardboardie malt near the end. Aftertaste shows the cream and roasted malt more than anything with some oatmeal body and a lighter dose of raisins and figs that make this quite sweet. Overall, a fairly decent, but a tad thin, stout that is definitely on the sweeter side, but to me pours and feels like a porter more than a stout. I sampled this 20 ounce, thin [beau’s] bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Columbus Circle), New York on 11-June-2017 for US$4,99 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore on 30-June-2017, my birthday at Pungoteague, Virginia.

Couleur noire familière aux stouts conventionnels. Légèrement sucrée, assez crémeuse. Arrière-goût de malt intéressant et de longue durée. Très bon produit. ryanhunter_4 (311) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2017
600 ml bottle poured at home. Pours dark brown with a reddish tinge when held up to light. Nice aroma of chocolate. Has a malty, coffee, and chocolate flavour. Is a touch watery but great flavours.

Sweet and creamy this light Stout has hints of milk and an interesting taste in the malt. HogTownHarry (6942) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2017
September 20, 2013 - 600ml shared bottle - this was a very early batch indeed of this! Ruby-black, almost opaque with a decent creamy light light brown head. Nutty, slightly woody aroma, not a lot of lacto sharpness or sourness - and NOT sweet, just a little smoky and charred - emerging coffee - really pleasant. Taste follows, and there is definitely some cream and sweetness there, but not obnoxiously so - still enough dry bitterness and still that hint of woodsmoke to balance it out, modest alcohol. Light and airy mouthfeel, creamy - really nice cocoa/nutmeat and light bitterness in the linger - very pleasant and well done beer.

On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Aroma brings out lactose sweetness and a touch of red fruitiness. Flavour is rather metallic, with subdued lactose, toasted malt and some dirt. Finishes earthy and metallic. Not a fan of this one. Oakes (17699) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2017
Draught @ St Augs. Dark brown with a thin head. On the nose, some mellow chocolate and a touch of toffee- to me, a nice milk stout aroma. Light body but residual sugars are just in enough evidence. Soft. Cocoa, touch of toffee. Avoids the thinness trap. Pretty good example. azzurro (257) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2017
UPDATED: APR 26, 2017 My first milk stout, this is for me. The milk is softening the bitterness. One of my top stout. Bought some for nephew and niece’s christmas gift. JamesChamp (37) - Canada, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2017
Had these beer bottle 600ml from LCBO for about $5. OK beer, but didn’t find it to interesting. Tasted more like an easy going stout. Little bit over priced for what it is. mikkopen (1165) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2017
600 ml bottle. Clear dark brown colour, thick tan head. Sweetish roasted malty aroma with notes of coffee and chocolate. The flavour is roasted, sweetish, with coffee and cocoa, and a slightly acidic and lactic, roasted finish. OK.
