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. DerWeg (1705) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2010
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? Freaky_tiki (1357) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2014
Free pour at victory cafe is out of cask & is deep black with a non existent cap. Goes down smooth & oily, with a nutty flavour. Mouthfeel is almost silken. Low key, subtle sipper. Tessic (1206) - 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! thb (836) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2011
Dark brown/near black with thin head. Aromas: coffee, cocoa, burnt toast. Definitely wouldn’t call it a sweet stout - it was rather dry in fact.

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! VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2009 Cask at C’est What - came a very dark brown with some reddish highlights at the bottom and a very small tan head. Sweet, tar-like aroma. Charcoal, black licorice, milk chocolate, coffee, toffee. Flavour similar, but with a very nice bitterness wrapping everything up nicely with a bow. And a s Sammy says, "refreshing", strangely. Neustadt’s best, in my opinion. Good show. 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. herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
On cask. Amber black with a low brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, cherry, floral and caramel. Milky, fairly full body. Black tea dryness, sweet with a dry cocoa powder finish. It’s not complex, but unique and balanced flavour. Nice. RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2009
Sample on tap at Volo. The beer definitely stays true to its name. Don’t expect anything strong. The tea flavour is like a hybrid between Darjeeling and a Nestle Iced Tea. Rest of the body is fairly light, with a sweet tea-fermented doughy flavour (worst description ever!). Worth a try.
