A - Pours a bark brown-black color with a big two fingers of thick brownish head. The head hangs around forever, finally reducing down to a still sizeable layer leaving lots of lace on the glass in the process. Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2011
S - Aroma is a mix of lots of roasted sweet caramel malts and some oats. There is also a touch of coffee and caramel in the background.
T - Starts off with some sweet roasted caramel malt flavor with some oats in the background. Through the middle some sweet milk flavor and some chocolate flavors come through. The finish is a mix of roasted caramel and coffee flavors that linger nicely.
M - Medium bodied with moderate-low carbonation. Feels super smooth and creamy. Finish is really creamy and roasty with some nice sweet notes.
D - Very drinkable. The nitro tap really creates an outstanding looking beer here. The flavors are all really nicely balanced and the beer feels really great.
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 (1544) - 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 (9598) - 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 (1238) - 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.

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 (3486) - 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.
