3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Bottle - Smells like chocolate syrup but in a nostalgic good way. Opaque brown black with an off white head. Bitter chocolate and coffee with a bitterness throughout. Body is a bit lacking and the cloying finish doesn’t do it for me.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2011-10-30. Black body, head fades. 3+ Asken roast in the aroma, dry roasty cold cofee. 6+ Flavour is similar, dry and roasty cold coffee over sweet dark malt. Some sugary touches around the edges. Smooth medium to full bodied palate. A decent beer but one that is very much not to my taste. Coffee drinkers will like it better. Cask Days 2011, Toronto

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, from Beer Revolution, Calgary. Dark brown, amber highlights, average beige head. Sweet coffee and roast aroma and flavour, chocolate too, burnt bitterness. A tad thin with aggressive carbo, which diminishes the enjoyment somewhat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle.
Pours deep dark ruby red, almost black color with a large beige head. Chocolaty aroma with cocoa and malt bitterness, subtle coffee notes, mild hops and roasted notes. Flavor is bitter malty, very roasty, subtle syrupy sweetness, caramel and chocolate, finish is licorice and coffee. Dry yet sweet, carbonation is tad strong but fits here nicely, quite interesting and flavorful.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line :
A massive coffee presence overwhelms most chocolate malt flavors in this unrefined but nonetheless flavorful Coffee Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A flimsy head of foam dives into the darkness.
-Lactose adds to the impression of sweetness.
-The high intensity of the coffee flavor, coupled with quite high residual sugar perception, make this feel much heavier than your average 6.5% brew.
-A vegetal, roasty angle is found alongside earth and pepper in the finish.
-This is an obvious nod to huge Coffee Stouts like Péché Mortel, so if you’re in the mood for such a brew, it will surely satisfy you... until you find a bottle of the real deal.
