Tessic (1140) - Brantford, Ontario, - DEC 1, 2012
This stout poured a deep black colour with a big, brown, creamy head. To thte nose there are scents of coffee, cocoa, earth and burnt toast. First sip was smooth with medium carbonation. Flavours of coffee, very light cocoa (kind of disappointing level) and almost burnt toast. Finish is burnt withlight hop flavour lingering amoungst the sea of burnt.

Wellingtons stout reminds me of the Tom Green. Same league, well done. Good milk stout.

Well Re-Booted mixer 4 pack from LCBO. Pours black with a creamy chocolate milk head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and milk. Dark chocolate, roasted coffee and lactose flavours which make for a great bitter sweet stout. I really enjoyed this one and looking forward to trying the next three.

Raistlin (393) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2017
Pours dark black with average tan head. Hits of dark chocolate. Bit of roasted malts which gives it slightly bitter finish which counters sweetness nicely. Expected it to be heavier, but thats the only complaint i got. Alcohol is well hidden. Very good carbonation for stout.

Strangebrewer (1284) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2017
bottle. Poured black with a brown head. Heavy roasted aroma. Full bodied, prickly carbonation, dry finish. Roasted malt flavour, smokey with sweet dark fruit notes, a touch astringent.

n1940 (127) - Dunbar, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2016
355 ml bottle from Welly Re-Booted Mix Pack. Quiet pour with medium carbonation and a roasted barley + chocolate aroma. The beer is mahogany in colour with a durable sepia head and good lace. The start is malty smooth with notes of chocolate expanding into the middle.The finish is long with roasted barley, hop dryness, lactose sweetness and a trace of alcohol warmth contributing to the complexity. Smooth from start to finish. Well done!

Nice thick dark body, dark brown head, lots of flaky sediment. Aroma is not your typical coffee/cocoa... sweet, fruity and figgy, and some chocolate; I like it. Same with the taste, although the chocolate comes through a bit more. Notable dry hop, plum/fig fruit flavors, toast. Other than a too-heavy carbonation level, Id say they did a very good job with this one.

lukin (606) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2016
bottle. Dark black pour, brown head. Chocolate is prominent but not overwhelming. Sweet roasty coffee. Its ok, but somehow all the different flavours didnt come together like they should have.

mathieuc (3905) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2016
Pours a very dark brown with no head except for the medium brown foam that appeared when pouring and immediately disappeared. Nose is of roasted malt, chocolate and alcohol. Taste is of chocolate, alcohol, slight lactose. Milk chocolate but not in an assertive way. Almost ash-y. Body is light to medium and obviously lacking with a quite high carbonation. Powdery cocoa in the finish. Slightly sticky. A fair (chocolate) milk stout but I kept wishing it had a fuller body and a lower carbonation.
