gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2006
Very thick tan head that really lasted. Deep brown pour. Chocolat and licorice scent with some coffee. Really smells like a stout. Nutty warming taste with quite the body. Hint of licorice and lots of malts bitter and sweet.

Eructoblaster (4066) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2006
Canned - 500ml. Dark brown body with reddish glints and a diminishing brown bubbly head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar, toffee and plummy notes. Very enjoyable and relatively robust hoppy taste with roasted malt hints. It ends with a good bitter finish. That ale is more than decent.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2006
500 ml can, 5% a/v Looks pretty much like a glass of coke! Brownish head which quickly dissapates. Smells malty with floral/fruit undertones. Tastes almost woody, with an aftertaste of malt. Definetly a delicious brew.

Boutip (6179) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2005
Bottle: Poured a clear dark color ale with nice foamy dark brown head with good retention. Aroma of English malt with floral undertone is easily distinguishable. Taste is very refreshing wit a good roasted malt presence and a bitter finish with a good balance of what seems like English hops. Body is a bit thin but overall this is a very enjoyable drink.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2005
A very nice, unusual-looking dark with nuances of black, dark brown and purple concentrating in different areas of the glass. Subtle, pleasant aromas of dark malt, coffee and milk chocolate. Plush, creamy palate is exceptionally smooth. Chocolate flavours abound, and evolve from a milk chocolate beginning to a dark, almost bitter chocolate finish. The type of beer you use to convert a non-beer-drinker into a beer drinker.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2005 Can and 1L bottle. Pours a dark chestnut color with a fluffy off-white head. Nice earthy/malty/chocolate aroma. Dominant malts in the flavor, a little sweet malt which is offset by the roasted/burnt notes. Not bad at all, especially as a warmer on a cool autumn day. Worth buying again.

500ml can. Deep brown in colour, head is tan and compact. Dark malt aroma. Flavour is again dark malt, roasty, dark chocolate notes, trace black licorice. Finish has some roasty asrtingincy. Quite a satisfying pint.

blankboy (7506) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2005
Can. Pours a dark ruby-black with a large light-brown rocky head. The aroma, which I really like, is of roasted malt, milk chocolate and caramel. The flavour starts with roasted malt and caramel then ends with a nutty lightly bitter taste. Nicely balanced with a good amount of carbonation. This is a well made quality beer and I get it often.
