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. 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! Tessic (1153) - 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 (2286) - 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!

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 (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
Draught at Barhop, TorontoLubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2009
Dark color with dark creamy head. Nice peaty aroma. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, peat. Correct bitterness.
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. Jayseppi (159) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2012
Dark ruby colour with a tan head that fades quickly. Roasted notes in the weak aroma. Some lemony sourness and tannic tea qualities woven nicely together with a roasty malt backbone. Light bodied and kind of drying. solidfunk (8965) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Smells smoky with caramel. Pours pitch black with no head. Decent dose of bitterness. There’s an odd zing I can’t place that gives this some points for me. Tap at Bar Hop.
