PWheatley (119) - , Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2010
On tap at the Raven in Deep Cove. The glass was too cold for proper tasting, but the head was thin and non existant fairly quickly. Flavour is a tad thin and fizzy kind of boring nutty flavour and watery finish. Not a strong stout but passable.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2011 On tap at the Alibi Room - pours black with a thin head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Palate is similar, with a smooth creamy mouthful and little bitterness. Very solid.

On tap at the Alibi Room, served in a lager glass. A very nice, well balanced dry stout.

Draft at the Alibi Room. Pours black with a thin pale tan head. Nose is chocolatey roast malt, coffee, toast. palate is more of the same. An exceedingly well-rounded and well balanced stout. Very nicely made with no sharp edges. A surprising Canadian effort.

Drought at The Railway Club.

Black beer with a tan head. Sweet and chocolaty aroma that came off a little plain. Medium thin feel with soft carbonation. Chocolaty with a slight bitterness and roasty, smokey flavour. Pretty good beer overall. Good name.

Palate – Nice Mouthfeel, Good texture with a dry finish.

Overall – A very good stout. I liked the flavor this beer was not too much and it really held up in the heat of the day.

Very strong roast greets the nose with nutty underlying malt character. Dark brown body is topped by a low but lasting off white head that lasts well. Very dry and drinkable flavour has a strong raosted bitterness and some light nutty and cocoa character. Medium light body with creamy texture and moderate to strong carbonation that really awakens the palate. Sampled on tap at the Alibi room with Sammy.

Sammy (12845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2008
Alibi Room with Tigglmtl, and so a surprisingly good stout that is underated. Great roast coffee aroma. Creamy medium mouthfeel taste, very fresh (and the all the difference) and roasty coffee. Lacey. Above average carbonation.
