Can from the LCBO. Smells like sweet roasted, malt, bitter chocolate, touch of smoke. Taste is rather mild on the coffee, but it’s there. Sweet roasted malt, nice bitter finish. Good stout, though not much coffee present. Raistlin (410) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
Aroma is roast coffee and dark chocolate, nearly black, small cappuccino head.. Flavor is chocolate and roasted malt. Medium bodied, well balanced, smooth, pleasantly bitter, very drinkable. Audioquest (13) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
Tall boy can. Looks and smells fabulous - roasted coffee, chocolate. But tends to disappoint once you taste it. Not that it is at all bad, it is actually quite good, but doesn’t quite live up to its aroma.

On tap, The Round Venue. Standard stout pour - very dark with some reddish tinge. Big foamy head. Quite beautiful. Malt,cereal, caramel and coffee aroma. Smooth, full bodied palate. Very smooth, balanced taste. Very nice beer. Ferris (15273) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014

341 mL bottle. Label says 5%. The right colour, but not much head. Coffee grounds in the nose, with a hint of something metallic. Coffee up front in the flavour, but it finishes really quickly. Nothing there to balance or enhance the coffee. shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
341 mL bottle. Pours a thick opaque black with a short lived khaki head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, subtle roast and woods. Creamy mouth feel, mild sweetness and a well balanced, bitter and roasty finish. Quite clean. Moderate plus carbonation. Tasty. Hateball16 (105) - - NOV 2, 2013
Huge coffee chocolate and vanilla in the nose, black opaque, little head. Little acidic on the palate, moderate carbonation, lots of espresso and dark chocolate flavours, and a long dry bitter finish. Good stuff. VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
