On tap at the Queen and Beaver in Toronto, served in an English pint. Pours black with a tall nitro tan head that remains. The nose is roasty with chocolate, a hint of coffee and a touch of herbal hops. The flavour is moderately sweet with roasty malts, lots of chocolate and a hint of delicate hops. The finish is moderate in length and malty with hint of hops. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a smooth, creamy texture. Overall, this is a decent stout with nice chocolatey notes, but it is fairly simple. It could be more full bodied with more complex malts. 2012-06-06
On tap at Bar Hop in downtown Toronto. Pours clear brown-black with bright brown-ruby highlights and a thick, creamy tan head and crown lacing. Aroma: molasses, smoke, chocolate, coffee. Flavor: all the above, plus porridge; very tasty. Mouthfeel: light- to medium-bodied. A tastier, creamy version of a Guinness-like stout. yespr (48916) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2017

County Durham Blak Katt on nitro (4.8%) at Bar Hop Brewco.
Deep black, beige head, Ruby highlights. Roasty chocolate aroma and a nice nutty, chocolate and toasted oats flavor though the nitro seemed a bit subdued to me. Kauge (2131) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2017 Tap at Bar Hop 2. Brown/black with excellent light tan head. Such thick lace, such good retention. On the nose it’s sweetish, roasty, with dark chocolate and molasses perhaps. Tastes roasty and sweet with a bit of pleasant fruity hoppiness(?). IDK... anyway it’s really nice. Soft yet slightly grainy on the palate, the finish is quite dry. Worked very well for me.

Edit: Year and a half later, tap sample at Crafty Coyote. Looks good. Malts, not too toasty. Modest sweetness. Dry. Didn't enjoy it that tremendously as before but I'll not lower the score.
Draft. Completely black body, perfect light brown head. He head is thick, with small bubbles and it builds up after pouring. The aroma is pure dark chocolate. It lets down a bit with the light body and the taste could have more chocolate and less smoke, but it’s still a very good stout.
