500ml bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown almost black with a medium, creamy, long lasting, tan head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and fudge. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, molasses and fudge with a tart note in a dry, bitter coffee finish. Medium body with a
creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad. piscator34 (2534) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle. Black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of cold drip-brewed coffee and fruity English yeast. Flavors are of coffee, chalk, dried fruit, and a bit of pale malt. Light bodied with a mineral finish. I know it’s a dry stout, but even a hint of sweeter chocolate-vanilla on the palate would have improved things. Still pretty decent as is.

Black pour, decent smell, toasty. Tastes burrnt though, some.good roast but some off flavour as well, wood not in a good way. Just okay. ljthiessen (1348) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 20, 2016
Bottle. Nearly black pour with a mocha head. Aroma is roasty chocolate and coffee, fairly rich and not overly bitter. Taste is pretty light, malty chocolate, a little roasty, kinda thin, finishes dry. Pretty decent for the style, but nothing outstanding. northropfrye (3604) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 14, 2016
Dark body brown head, some soapy lacing. Roasty malts and a bit of lactose on the nose. Taste is semi-bitter, roasty malts, quite dry. Mediocre palate. Over all a pretty basic dry stout.

Opaque black color with no visible activity. Creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with strong legs.
Aromas of butterscotch and sweet bread. Flavors of molasses, toffee, dark berries, coffee, cocoa, nuts and herbal spices. Some sweetness and a well intensified bitter taste with a strong smoky roasted earthy feel, but a little metallic.
Milky slick medium body with average carbonation. Strong finish of medium length, ending with an dry bitter earthy herbal spicy feel, not too harsh, and a slight syrupy coating.
Overall a good craft with pleasant flavors, well balanced and intensified, and good freshness being not too flat. pintbypint (3641) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2016

Very dark pour with no head, just a khaki ring. Nose is maple, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Light bitter chocolate with a medium roast nuttiness. Flat oily mouth , quite dry. I hope it is just this bottle that is flat. Need to revisit.
