Bottle - Oatmeal, dark chocolate and some coffee. Jet black with a small beige head. Oatmeal and coffee roast with a long roasty finish. Decent. Lubiere (13995) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
A dark brown stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with light grassy notes, coffee, OK. In mouth, a watery coffee stout with grassy and celery notes, OK. Cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest 2013. j12601 (12700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2009
On cask at Volo. Pours a jet black with a thick browned dark tan head. Big coffee, dark bitter cocoa, a hint of vanilla, char. Medium bodied, plum and prune, more cocoa, a little more coffee. Finishes smooth and with some lingering bitterness. Sammy (12378) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2009
Drinkable stout, coffee grounds mostly, with I imagine some oatmeal added to bulk up the moutfeel. Dark brown. Enjoyed at Volo. jercraigs (10592) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2009
2008-01-31. Black body with a modest foamy brown head and lace. Dry roast and coffee in the aroma, malt, mild dry dark malt. Flavour is likewise roasty with a good dose of coffee, roast and bitterness - water dilute coffee, like cold soaked beans as a opposed to brewed coffee? Or left over grounds? At least that was the impression I got, but then I am not a coffee drinker either. Very mild cocoa touches. (6+) Average palate is very lightly carbonated. Meh, decent brew but the coffee character is very much not to my tastes. Cask at Victory Cafe Winter Festival

Pour out of 16 oz can, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of coffee, roasted malt, slight metallic note, some oats, cocoa. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, coffee, iced coffee into some earth, slight dark fruit, finishing sweet, slightly roasted. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pitch black with a huge sticky brown head. The nose is pretty nice - soft coffee and a bit of roasted character. There's also a little bit of light cocoa and a bit of roasted character as well. A lightly acidic component as well. Okay - if a bit pedestrian.

[1976-20090131] Cask. Coffee oil roast aroma has a hint of chocolate. Black body with a small long-lasting creamy tan head. Dark dry-roasted wood and charcoal malt flavour. Full body is dry. Quite dry and lovely, this combination of flavours really appeals to me.

cask days 2013 @ beau’s oktoberfest, vankleek hill. very dark brown pour with a small light beige cap leaving some lacing. loads of chocolate, mostly bitter, few coffee notes - no vegetal whatsoever, hint of oatmeal sweetness and body - light to medium. moderate carbonation, bittering coffee finish. nice although coffee was rare and maybe a tad sweet for style. enjoyed it. solidfunk (9034) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 4, 2012
A bit of a nutty, coffee aroma and a fairly average taste. Not bad by any means but doesn’t stand out too much. The oatmeal is faint in the smell and taste, but it lurks in here somewhere. On cask at volos
