Finally I find this #$%#$^ beer - cask no less, at What Cest. It is pretty dark brown with a tan cap. Light fruity aroma and a tad chocolatey. Stronger in the taste of the fruit, also a little rooty-spicy, and a dry hop finish. A touch of plastic in there? Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2010
500ml Can: Dark brown pour, giant foamy tan head. Very roasty, caramel aroma. Well carbonated, middle-of-the-road mouthfeel. Very sweet, honey, roast coffee beans, chocolate. Actually very nice, and a refreshing change from some of the more traditional stouts we seem to get here in Ontario. markas101 (2487) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2010
50 cl can, birthday present from Rick and Reet, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Jet black, dark almond head. Sweet malt aroma balanced with some resin. Sweet first sip then gradually changing to a pungent soy and banana finish. Tessic (1192) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2010
This stout poured a deep black colour with a huge, creamy, light brown head. To the nose there are scents of coffee, metal, cocoa and caramel. First taste was quite smooth with a sweet coffee flavour in the forefront. Other flavours of chocolate, roasted malts and nuts soon followed. Finish is burnt and bold, just as a good stout should be. Finish is mostly sweet roasted coffee with a touch of cocoa. Very good! jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2010
500 ml can from brewery. Pours almost black, with a ruby tint, large cauppucino like head. Bubbly lacing. Big roasted, nutty aroma. Taste is roasted malt, hint of chocolate, not much coffee taste. Nicely drinkable!

On tap at Volo. Pours a dark brown, near black, with moderate-sized beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and light herbal hops. Flavour follows with a light bitterness in the finish. Nice. pootzboy (1784) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2010
Can from the brewery pored a deep opaque brown with a smallish mocha cap, decent lacing. Aroma is pungent with roast grains cocoa and a honey sweetness just below the grassy-spicy hops. Rounded mellow character chewy mouth feel, Big roast-cocoa-malt with a underlying tangy honey note which is pleasantly sweet nowhere near cloying. Rich roasty- cereal body gives way to a long wet finish punctuated with roast and some char astringency and a light hop bite. A unique take on a sweet stout with local honey substituting for lactose usually used in these sweet stouts and Pacific Jades out shining the traditional goldings. A milk stout with a couple of twists ....Another great release from this brewer. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2009
A deep dark stout with a thin moka head. Aroma of chocolate nougat, with light honey notes. In mouth, a nice lightly bitter chocolate, very sustained, with nice sweet honey in beginning, nutty notes. Medium bodied. On tap at Wellington Gastropub, June 16 2009. mabel (9245) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
[2070-20090403] Cask. Car tire roasted malt aroma with a mild fruitiness. Black body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and some thick lacing. Boozy black and thick flavour has roasted malt and heavy wood undertones with a long aftertaste of tea. Full body. Good, but annoying aftertaste.
