Draft. Pours a black body with a tan head and mild head retention. Coffee and coco notes, light licorice and sweet malt tones. A bit roast y with some chewy oats and a mild bitterness. Alright. williamherbert (1541) - Syracuse, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Roasted malts; leathery taste. Soft caramel notes in flavor and even more in the aroma. Silky feel, velvety. Soft tobacco notes. A hella dry beer with a nice soft finish. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Deep black with a tight tan head. The nose is quite cocoaish. A fairly pronounced earthy character and even a little bit of nice fruitiness. Lots of silky, oaty unctuousness. Cloudy palate and a nice lingering bitter cocoa flavour. Another very well-made bitter style. BiddleBrau (1220) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Almost black, little hazy, off-white dense head. Roasted malt with some sweetness in the nose. Roasty and burnt, more robust than their porter. Hint of oiliness in palate. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 20, 2009

On a nitro tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep black with brown highlights and a medium tanned head. Roast, chocolate, and malt on the nose. Creamy, but a little thin due to the nitro. Finishes with a long roast bitterness. Nice session stout. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2007
Pours a black color with brown highlights and a thin, light brown head. Average aroma and flavor of chocolate and roasted malt. The body is light to medium with soft carbonation. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2007
Black body with a long-lasting medium tan head. Roasted nose. Taste has a lot of roasted grainy malts followed by a medium amount grassy hops and a light citric touch. Not much to report in terms of chocolate/coffee/fruity flavours. The floury yeast and the roastiness blend together and leave a somewhat dry impression. Pleasant average generic brewpub stout. Incidentally the brewpub also makes a truly amazing stout-cheddar soup. The cheese probably has most to do with it. SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Poured dark. Brown head, bubbly and fast dissipating. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, and malt. Flavor of chocolate milk, with a sweet caramel center, but the end tasted like metal. Thin bodied. Again, I simply left it in the growler to long. I could sense a fantastic beer, so I will have to somehow acquire more of this. jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2006
