My favourite of the 5 draught sampler we tried at the resturaunt. Aroma and flavour were dominated by coffee and unsweetened baking chocolate. Good looking stout with a small tan head. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2008
(Draught) Pours a black body with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, light lactose, and coffee. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee, and some chocolate. lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 24, 2008
One of the surprises at the Great American Beerfest in Boston. I asked the guy who poured if this was brewed with coffee because of its great roasted coffee profile, but he said the brewery uses straight black patent malt for the flavor. Great coffee notes with a good amount of dark chocolate and burnt malts. Couldn’t tell what it looked like in the 2 oz. sampler, but it looked dark with white head. Flavor was rich and chocolatey with lots of burnt malt and coffee. Really good for a regular stout, and definitely the best regular that I had that day. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2007
cask version at the brewpub, apparently dry hopped. Black in color, small sudsy head from the handpump. Aroma of chocolate, roast, and a good amount of citrus hops. Taste is roasty, chocolate with some citrus, and mild piney bitterness. interesting cask beer. TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2007

Draught. Very dark, with ruby tinges, and small tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is string mocha and chocolate. Flavor is similar with a dry roasty finish. Little thin in flavor. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2005
Aroma of biscuity and roasted malt with toasted bread. Deep black pour with a ring of offwhite lace. Good flavor of biscuity and roasted malt, toasted bread and coacoa, bitter finish. Light to medium body with a dry texture and lively carbonation. Good stuff, it reminds me of Rogue’s Shakespeare Stout. VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - JUL 22, 2004
Draft at VT Brewers Fest - Black/brown with a light tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, but not strong. Slightly watery. Roasted malt and coffee flavor wih a medium amount of hop bitterness. Finish is thn and bitter. muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Sample at the Vermont Brewers’ Fest. Thick black. Nose very faint, roasty. Lightly vinous, medium bittersweet chocolate-coffee body, weak, with a bitter finish. Too light to support the bitterness, too little sugar.
