473 can from the 2016 Christmas pack. Forgot this guy in the cellar. Best before is "April 2017", but it seems no worse for wear. Pours black, with a dark mocha cap. Aromas of molasses, dark roast coffee, lots of roasty malt notes, faint ash, and cocoa. Taste wise, lighter bodied than expected but with LOTS of flavour. Molasses, dark roast coffee, lots of dark malt, a faint mineral note, and a light seam of acidity that heads into bigger, more tannic versions of what was previously described with a dry, bitter espresso finish.
Railway City has been pretty hit and miss in the past, but if the 2017 version of this is as good, I'm going to stock up. Cartoonkhaki (1341) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2017
Dark dark brown black with thick brown head. Thick malty chocolatey aroma and equal flavour. The body is medium and well balanced with the flavour. DanDan_ (83) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2017
Can: Pours black with a couple finger brown head that slowly diminishes. Aroma of chocolate, smoke, roasted malt, and some green pepper. Taste is mostly bitter with a really nice smooth chocolate mouthfeel. Light-medium body, thin on the front of the palate but has a good creaminess on the back, carbonation a bit lively,
lingering bitter/dry (almost ashy) finish. Like other stouts it gets better as it warms, this one revealing more fruity plum/berry characteristics. Overall: Enjoyed and will revisit again but I’m a sucker for smokey notes, if you aren’t a fan of smoke/ash I’d steer clear though. thorongil2 (3571) - , Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2017
(can) clear, very dark brown colour with a medium tall brown head; aroma of roast, milk chocolate; smooth palate; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish googleimage83 (172) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2017
Very dark brown - had starts off cherry red then settles into a tan mocha. Big coffee aroma, sweet chocolate malt - butter tart, raisin. Taste is coffee forward, dark roast finish - raisin, cherry, pastry. Nice and creamy. Very well done.

can. Dark black pour with tan/brown head. Roasted coffee, some burnt ash. Smooth mouthfeel. Pretty good stout. BrewWhatIWant (323) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2016
Pours black with a medium brown head. Aroma of coffee and pumpernickel. Taste is bittersweet with notes of coffee, ash, pumpernickel and dark chocolate. Soda-like carbonation gives this beer an unusual sharpness. Despite this it has a decent body and smooth, full flavour.
