3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml bottle from the LCBO.
Pours a nearly black brown with a three finger, mocha/tan head that thins itself out moderately quickly.
Aroma is faint with notes of roasted malt, burnt coffee, and very slight, bitter chocolate.
Taste is bitter with a dry, roasted malt, slightly coffee aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation. Fairly clean in the mouth with a slightly creamy texture. Certainly drinkable.
Overall good but not my thing. I thought I’d give this a try but I enjoy more of the chocolaty/sweet stouts and this just isn’t doing it for me. A bit too bitter without enough other flavours to mix it up. Probably wouldn’t buy again but a good brew if you enjoy the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2016 Bue à la pression. Couleur noire intense, mousse beige qui a de l?endurance, nez qui semble être sur le whisky de prime abord. Ça se remet à mousser en bouche avec des notes de moka/praline, puis chocolat en fin de bouche. Pas mon genre, moi qui n?aime pas le café, mais ça passe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille. Bière noire opaque surmontée d’une épaisse mousse moka assez touffue qui tient bien la route. Au nez elle offre des arômes de café, de chocolat noir et de grains torréfiés avec une légère touche fruitée avec cassonade. En bouche les mêmes saveurs sont présentes avec une amertume modérée en finale et un corps léger mais légèrement crémeux.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
dark brown, almost black colour, moderate sized beige-ish head; aroma of cocoa powder, dark chocolate, ash, some dried plum and sour cherry, as well as peated notes; taste is the same with considerably less intensity; a bit watery, which is fully acceptable taking into account that it is "only" a dry stout

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque black with a nice head definition. The 1 finger head is light brown and creamy, lasting around 10-15 minutes, but making no legs. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, smoked salmon and bacon, faint molasses, herbal spices. Creamy light body with a strong intensity. Lacks a little freshness being dry and bitter, with a present sugary feel. Ends with an earthy smoked bacon aftertaste. A mix between a dry stout and a rauchbier. Overall decent craft: the flavors are nice but the feel is a little off, can be a little harsh, too oily and too thin.
