Sammy (11811) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2008
A blackish stout, minimal head. Faint roast, some malt in the nose. About average mouthfeel,which is below average for this style. Modest sourness. Drinkability is about average. A decent beer, but not best representation of style.

Nice stout...not quite as good as Id hoped, but as advertised - subtle hints of coffee and chocolate, and a nice firm malt bill. Smooth if not big bodied.

hopscotch (10983) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Bottle... Black ale with a mid-sized, frothy, well-tanned head. Good retention. Milk chocolate and caramel aroma. Well rounded, burnt, chocolaty notes in the flavor. Medium bitter with good balance. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Roasted, mildly burnt, lightly bitter finish. Lots of milk chocolate overall. Reminds me just a bit of Weyerbachers Old Heathen. Thanks go out to WBC for the bottle!

Pretty nice stout. Black pour wtih a small brown head. Aroma is pretty weak, but i do smell the typical coffee and cocao. Some molasses on the nose and togue. Beer is faintly sweet and has some nice balance. Nice beer to try, but not one to seek out on a regular basis.
