3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the tap. Dark brown with beige head. Milky chocolate, light lacto.
650ml bottle pours almost black in colour with a finger of light tan head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruits and roasted grains. Taste is a roasted grain bitterness with a dark fruity and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a nicely done brew that is quite flavourful. Recommended. sulawang (1217) - - OCT 15, 2017
Visual: (cellared for 2 years). Pours jet black with a sizeable frothy 2cm slowly dissipating head, 2mm creamy retention, a bit of lacing, very active scattered micro streams.

Nose: cocoa powder malt, cocoa nib nutty, toasted-slight burnt toffee biscuit (lvl-9)-pungency
Attack: sharp crisp, full-tingly, subdued sour background
Mid-palate: metallic oaty chocolate malt, mild milkiness, (lvl-4-sweetness), dry cocoa base, soft toasted bitter barley malt
Finish: residual dark cocoa, lingering roasted dark malt
Summary: Decent dark roast chocolaty flavour but somewhat marred by a metallic sharpness. The oats and lactose don't seem to create enough of a creamy silkiness to complement the cocoa, which itself isn't too spectacular. Drinkable, but the transitions lack finesse and are chaotic to the palate.
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2016 On tap at Bitter Tasting Room. Some chocolate in the non-intensive aroma. Some coffee and bitterness of roasted malt. Quite poor taste, unfortunately. solidfunk (9795) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 29, 2015

Medium brown. Light aroma. Raisiny fruity character, bit of chocolate. Oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookie. A bit disjointed but I can see how it works. Crit (4116) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015
I wouldn’t call this a sweet stout.
Dark brown,lasting tan head.Nose of dry roast & bitter chocolate.Palate of roast coffee,light cocoa,condensed milk tones.Lasting medium strength bitterness in finish. Quite nice mcberko (20267) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
On tap at Moody Ales, pours an amber-tinged dark brown with a small beige head. Nose brings out notes of oats upfront, with some medium sweet cocoa. Flavour is quite bitter, with dry cocoa, lots of oatmeal and a somewhat metallic astringency on the finish. Seems a bit out of balance - needs some maltier notes to take away the astringency. Decent.

Draft - Coffee, chocolate and oats. Jet brown black with a decent light brown head. Lots of chocolate and coca, some Berry notes and long bitterness. As it sits dark bakers chocolate becomes much more pronounced. fiulijn (21523) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Draught at the brewery
Dark brown color, almost black. Roasty, dry, a bit coffeish. Nice Stout, a bit different.
