Draught at C’Est What Spring Festival. Pours a very dark brown with an average size creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, some chocolate and coffee. Nice roasty flavour along with some berries, hints of coffee and chocolate and a bitter dry finish. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Solid! mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2009
[2135-20090508] Tap. Coffee grounds and muddy earth aroma. Dark brown black body with a long-lasting creamy tan head. Earthy "mineral" flavour has some coffee malt and mild roast. Full body. Good.

Draught. At C’Est What Spring Fest. Black, opaque pour, decent lasting creamy tan head - at last a 4/5!! Aroma of licorice, mint, coffee, toffee and something slightly burnt - I can accept "toast" from garthicus. The flavour follows, slightly acidic, strongly roasty, with a bit of table cream in with the coffee and licorice. Light-bodied for a stout, but redeemed by a pleasing frothiness, mildly acidic and carbonated, finishes like a mild, very, very drinkable, no lingering acidity - truly sessionable. Well done!

On tap at Cest What? Sammy (12359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2009
Appearance: thick, dark brown with large creamy top
Nose: Mid creamy character with light roasted follow up. Gentle and good.
Flavor/Palate : medium light bodied but with solid roasted malt character. Stout with creamy side. Solid offering.
Enjoyed on-tap at C’est What. Black with some coffee. Roast, coffee aroma. Good mouthfeel, even thickish. Lace dots. Carbonation is on the aggressive side, typical for this bar. AN above average decent stout, well-balanced. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2009

Aroma of dark chocolate, roast coffee and roasted malt, jet black, small cappuccino head. Flavour is cocoa, coffee, malt and pitfruit. Light bodied, balanced, bitter, yet still filling. Quite nice. DerWeg (1689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2009
Almost porter-like, dry and a bit sour with dark fruit, mineral, crisp hops, toffee. Fairly dense color with creamy dark tan cap. Good stout on tap at Bar Volo!
