Cest What? (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
December 20, 2012
The beer pours a very dark brown, almost black with a creamy tan coloured head. The aroma was roasted malt, nuts, and coffee. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is roasted malt and coffee. Thin and bitter is the best way to describe this.

BrewWhatIWant (139) - 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.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2016
Boisson bien noire, coiffe dune mousse couleur lait au chocolat, et dot darmes chocolats et un peu cendrs. La bouche est assez gnreuse, avec une bonne prsence des houblons, en soutien aux malts grills savoureux et moelleux. Un stout bien fait, plus intense que la normale, bien camp dans le style mais suffisamment audacieux pour se porter au-dessus de la mle.

gautjohn (3) - Oakville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016 does not count
Can from LCBO in Oakville. Pours pitch black with a big VERY tan head. Smells of coffee, wood, and smoke. Taste is quite bitter up front that lasts right to the end. Light to medium bodied with flavors of coffee, dates, and nuts. Slight sweetness becomes more apparent as you drink it. Overall a fine stout that gets better as you drink it, revealing more flavour.

Listigovers (1085) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2016 Pours dirty black, brown head. Smells slightly burnt with a hint of fruitiness. Body is somewhat thin, flavour is a bit harsh, some smokiness, slightly woody, not bad but rough edges.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016
Theres smoked.. and theres burnt. I think this carries a lot of burnt off flavours. Ive screwed up enough soups, and stocks to know the difference. Looks good, if not maybe a bit murkier in the pour than Id like. Some filtering would have been a good idea. Pours opaque black with a really nice looking chocolate rocky head. Flavours of coffee, chocolate, heavily toasted malt (read... BURNT)... not all burnt, but some of it was. For a beer of this magnitude.. the body is thin. Palate is interesting with a rounded hop and crusty pumpernickel angle. Theres even some lactic/Malic flavours kicking around. Modest cocoa notes. The underlying problem is the burnt aspect. I get it... Railway city.. Im from St. Thomas. Dry the malts over a fire...dont toss the burnt logs and coal into the wort. Its very ashy in the finish... like a burned marshmallow kind of thing. This beer could be very good.
