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. JoeMcPhee (10137) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Pitch black with a tight creamy head from the cask. Loads of coffee and herbal hoppiness as well. Fairly chewy bitter cocoa palate and a lot of earthy character. Some black licorice and chewy earthy character. Assertively hopped. It’s decent although I’d like more sweetness in a beer like this. kevinsenn (2310) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
Can from brewery. Black with bubbly black head. Aroma is sweet, roasty, and earthy. Roasty taste, with chocolate and some sweetness. Very slight berry notes. Dry roasty finish. Medium-bodied, with a slightly watery finish. Quite good overall. jercraigs (11095) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2009
2009-04-03. Black body with a nice foamy tan head, leaves a thick brewers lace on the glass. (4+) Moderate aroma, yeast, very mild roast and malt. (6+) Flavour is sweetly malty with just a touch of roast, roasty bitterness in the finish, light cocoa and chocolate notes. (7+) Smooth average to medium bodied palate. Lightly under carbonated - might improve on tap? Bit simple but pretty nice overall. Cask @ Volo 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.

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! Tessic (1252) - 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! barncatmatt (2355) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2011
473ml can @ the brain in hamilton. dark brown pour, small tan head that reduces to a ring. nice roast malt and slightly sweet malt nose. well rounded flavour, to dry to be a sweet stout. alcohol come through a bit to much. more body would really bring everything together. thx heather! 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. fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
Draught at Barhop, Toronto
