3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at some London restaurant. Nice opaque black pour with very rich, very creamy off white head. Aroma is potent for something served with beergas, nice crisp roasted grain aroma, burnt grain, light coffee, super clean yet not dull. Strong roasty flavor, coffee. Very drinkable and light on the palate despite low carbonation, bone dry. Strong showing.
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2017 On tap at Pearson Airport, Toronto. Nice to see a non-Guiness stout in an airport in any country. Sadly very little flavour or body to this though. Some vague burnt notes and a bit of cheap chocolate ice cream. May have been better before inBev got involved, I suppose... Tranquillity (2432) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2017
Draft at the brewery. Black body, thick brown head. The aroma has smoked barley. The taste is smooth and not dry at all. Nice licorice finish. Jrwhitney6 (500) - - JUL 4, 2017
Had in Whistler. Brown with a foamy, creamy head that has amazing retention. Slightly smoky nose. Taste is toasted malt. It's a little thin - so so. Guess I am used to imperial stouts.

De couleur noir avec beaucoup everfesssance et le col est moka. On n’a des de torrification et un peu moka . En bouche on reste sur notre soif car le gout n est pas aux rendez vous . C est fade comme gout même si c est stout dry . Un peu de gout crazy_cat_lady (620) - - APR 29, 2017
Draught at the Cider House. Pitch black, creamy white head. Extremely faint aroma of coffee and chocolate. Very faint roasted coffee and chocolate flavour, with some mineral notes. Pretty sure I’ve had this before, but I could swear it was better before. Tastes kinda like nothing.

On tap at local craft beer pub... this beer has a putrid aroma that carries over into the taste. Spoke to thr owner, he said that is what it is supposed to taste like. A poor example of the style. Perhaps the brewery is cutting corners since being bought out by inbev..? Not recommended. johndoughty (5472) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2017
Can. Nitrogen infused weak body makes for a poor drink. Quite insipid although there is a trace of maltiness. Pretty rubbish and certainly not what I would call a craft beer. BroSpud (2199) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 12, 2017
On draft at a restaurant in Whistler Village. Ordered this having been duped by the waiter into believing it was a local craft beer. Not local. Not craft. Not terrible but pretty average stout overall. omhper (25256) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2017
Keg at Mill St., Ottawa. Near black, mid sized head. Licorice and coffee up front. Dry with light-medium body and somewhat creamy rounded mouthfeel. Grainy licorice, coffee and spice. Long bitter finish.
