650 ML bottle
Pitch black color, dark brown head that falls to a thick collar. Bits of spotty lacing with this.
Nose is licorice, molasses, chocolate, roasted grain, some burnt tire. Dense nose.
taste is rolled oats, licorice, lots of roasted grain, baking chocolate, bitter dark chocolate. Dense as heck.
fairly smooth for all the malt. Chewy but not overly chewy. Lifted by the oats. Medium feel and light on carbonation. Nice deep beer
electrotype (664) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2016
Un stout assez rapeux et aux notes de bois. Il y a trace de noix, de chocolat noir non sucré et de houblons amères non fruités. C’est agréable à boire, l’alcool est bien intégré, mais c’est quand même assez intense pour un début d’après-midi d’été de congé! Pas un coup de coeur, mais une bière que je boierais à nouveau si l’occasion se présente. halfonit (1412) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Pours black with a thick caramel colored head. Aroma is of malts, licorice, big time roastiness, a little soy, and smoke. Heavy palate with some slight tingling carbonation. Flavor is of malts, chocolate, grain, bark, roasty/toasty, hops, and oats. Fantastic flavor on this! Leaves a chocolaty malt finish. Great stuff. Well balanced. Worth the $10.99 per bottle.

Poured black with a huge tan head that was stable. Aroma has lots of chocolate and oats. A touch of cream and alcohol as well. Taste is nice and creamy with lots of flavor. At first nutty with chocolate. Transitions to a very nice finish with lots of creamy oats and more bitter chocolate. Very nice and complex.
