UPDATED: JAN 17, 2005 Well, a rare example of the Ontario Government coming through with a truly world-class, exceptional beer. This was one of the best beers Ive had, with a good balance between bitterness and sweetness that belied its colour.

a pretty fresh bottle. probably my favourite out of the 600 or so beers i tasted in the states. black and tarry, huge coffee powder, prune and biscuit aroma. plenty of burnt dry bitterness. sounds like they use a pretty simple recipe for this but there are all sorts of complex flavours, some nougat and whipped cream, port. managed to bring a bottle back and i cant wait to taste it in a year or 2

Aroma is chocolate, raison, espresso, with a hint of rasberry. Pour is black, with a thin mocha head that forms and dissapates. Taste is heavy chocolate, with a coffee background focusing on espresso with a nice hop build. Alcohol is well covered and this is nicely presented brew.

Thanks to matt_dinges for this one. Black with a tan head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Had a mild chocolate taste with plenty of malt. I could definately taste the alcohol in this one. It ended with a mild bitter chocolate taste. The end really had some hop character I wasnt expecting.

Pours a dark black body with little to no transperancy. Quickly receding head. Powerful roasted malt flavors. Hints of chocolate, coffee and vanilla, maybe even caramel. Surprisingly, a decent amount of hop character, making this stout more complex and intruging then others. Well done!

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 Draught: Pours black small beige head. Mainly roasted malts with some coffee and chocolate to it. A lot of hops in this really taking the other flavors away from the beer giving it a good amount of bitterness. Great mouthfeel and very easy to drink just wish there werent so many hops.

johnyvt (158) - West Hollywood, California, USA - DEC 20, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2004 This has got to be one of the best smelling stouts out there. Creamy, complex roasted malts. Nice tastes of spicy hops and chocolate. Little bit of coffee/espresso. Very little alcohol taste.

Great stout!! Has an amazing variety of different roasted malt flavors. Almost tastes like coffee, with a chocalate hint.The head on this beer pours a nice medium brown color and has a thick and fluffy texture to it.

jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 18, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2006 One of the mildest imperial stouts I have imbibed. Definately aromatic, chocolate and espresso dominate with roasted malts. Definate hoppiness, strange, but amazingly good! Fantastic full flavor, complex. Very nice! Better than most.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Had a chance to get well acquainted with a case of this Imperial Stout. Tastes of chocolate and coffee. Very complex. Dont plan on drinking more than a few of these in one sitting. *** Inconsistency across years is a bit of a problem *** This beer has fallen hard.
