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. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
Nuts playing with efficient roasted bitterness...Dark chocolate undertones in a well-fed body...Nothing to reinvent the wheel, but simply a very good stout on all levels...

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. jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2013

Good at what it is: an honest rendition of the style without defaults nor stand outs. Fairly mild, but still packing a decent roastiness like burnt chocolate, an almost black body, the typical nitro appearance and obvious oats while having a creamy medium body. Lovers of the style will certainly appreciate this. 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.
