650 mL bottle. Pours charcoal with a lacy khaki head. Nose is chocolate, mild roast, dark cherry and some earthy-graphite character. A little woody hop. Sweet malts up front with a little dusty roast bitterness on the end. Moderate plus body with above average carbonation. Much better than expected; a tasty sweet stout. solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Ok. Palate on light side here for a stout. Brown was a stronger beer for its style than this. Pours blackish with decent head and lacing. Light roast malt. Some light nut and dark chocolate. Finishes bitter with some caramel malt. Tap at brewpub. cfrancis (3535) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
Run of the mill stout, nothing special but well made. A good intro stout for people, light roasted and some bitter chocolate in the finish. AleRider78 (1409) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2013
"Looking pretty good, but not really any head at all. Was expecting a thick foamy head (like the mocha part in the desciption) :( oh well. Extremely dark look. Getting more malts, coffee and various nutty flavours. Hints of chocolate. Nice and smooth going down. No aftertaste from my experience. Very good."

On tap @ Big Rig Ottawa. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a minimal beige head. Aromas were subtle and not helped by the pilsner glass it was served in nor it being fairly cold. What I could discern was a light honey. Interesting contrast to the taste which did not have much in the way of sweetness. Tastes are roasty malts, dry and nutty with a bit of chocolate on the back end. Exceptionally light bodied for a stout, moderate carbonation, and a short dry finish. This was a nice refreshing beer but far from what I normally expect from a stout.

Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewpub on February 27, 2013. Black, small head. Aroma of barley and chocolate malt, slightly sweet. Barley taste a little raw, not very rich, slightly bitter malt. A very easy to drink stout, even too much! Metalchopz (3472) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
Originally rated July 2012. This is my first brew from this new brewpub in my region. Pours a dark brown colour with a small white cap, but decent lacing. Aromas of roasted malts with notes of chocolate and hop. Average mouthfeel. The taste is pretty much the same as the nose; chocolate, roasted malts and hops. Decent balanced stout between the malt and hop, that is still refreshing. GRM (4140) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012

On tap at the brewpub. Surprisingly light colour, deep red-brown body, residual 1-2 ml beige foam. This is the lightest stout I’ve seen so far. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, caramel, cocoa and a touch of woodiness. Taste dominated by strong espresso, caramel, roasted malt and wood charcoal. Almost completely flat, but with a decent dryness. A little too watery. robinvboyer (4736) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2012
Black but not opaque, small beige head. Good roasty aroma, subtle cocoa. Light mouthfeel, and a solid carb. Medium bitterness, light chocolate, solid roast. Decent.
