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. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2009
Big coffee nose, roasted malt, chocolate and toffee, black, tiny toffee head. Flavour has loads of coffee, malt and chocolate. Medium bodied, well balanced, bitter and bold. Very good rendition. blankboy (7735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2009
Cask at Volo. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size mostly-lasting fizzy tan head. Slightly mild but pleasant aroma has a hint of red wine, mild roasted malt and green hops -- it’s almost Brown Ale-ish. Flavour of lightly roasted malt, light green hops and some coffee. The finish is iffy -- like black tea when the teabag was left in too long. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good overall. Spab (3967) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2010
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. DerWeg (1695) - 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?

Cask at C’est What. Works very well as a cask, purs dark with soft creamy mocha head, that leaves much lace down the glass. A bit of roasted barley aroma. Easy mouthfeel that is as much as a stout as it is a Scottish. Not too sweet. Refreshing on a Spring Day. 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. garthicus (2934) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 25, 2009
Appearance: Jet black, frothy off white head. Aroma: Slight hop, bitter, green tea and some slight smokiness. Flavour: Malty, bitter, cherry, slight alcohol, pepper and a finish of over-steeped tea. Boutip (6432) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2009
Cask: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a light foamy head. Aroma is dominated by dry roasted malt with light coffee notes. Taste is dominated by lightly astringent coffee notes with some lightly bitter roasted malt notes. Body is thin with a watery final. I can’t say I was overly impressed and I find that beers from this brewery are a bit thin. thb (831) - 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.
