A very creamy off-white head with sticky dense lacing. Well roasted malt, citrus hops, and caramel. Rich body and sustained taste.

On tap @ Yellow Belly St. John's, NL. Pours near opaque with a small, but long-lasting, mocha head. Aromas are coffee and dark chocolate. Tastes are roasted malts, coffee, and bitter hops. Full body, creamy, slightly chalky, long bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Draft - Nice roasty malts. Jet black with a rich light brown head. Roasty and a dry bitter finish. Sweetness to balance but a big bitter finish.

On tap at brewpub. Thick foamy off white head. Very dark colour. This was disappointingly thin and watery, with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Their Irish red is much better.

I wouldn’t say yes again to a SJS. Poured a murky black with a little tiny head. Aroma was promising of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Taste was just okay of mild chocolate and coffee. Had a very thin watery body. No real bitterness and just falls flat like water on your tongue. It also goes down way to quick for a stout.

I was really looking forward to this brew and it let me down. It’s inky black with a thin, creamy tan head. Smelling of chocolate and roast malts and carrying into the flavour but falling flat and dropping right off. There is a very light bitterness that buggers off quickly. The big downside for me was the watery thin palate and super low carbonation...probably the thinnest Stout I have had. However, the aftertaste was of very pleasant chocolate and saved this from being a total disaster. Quite literally this beer seems watered down.

Bottle shared by drsordr at Natifest. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malts, some chocolate, powdery, mild sweetness, some off notes, light coffee hints. Lighter, thin body. I am glad to have new provinces, countries, etc., but this was just a tick.

Taster from a bottle shared at Natifest 2013. Clear, but dark brown. Minimal off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Some dark fruit, some dark chocolate. Smooth, light, crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Bigger body. Dark chocolate, some tobacco, herbal flavors, nice roast. Bigger bitter taste. Minimal sweet. Maybe a bit thin, but awesome big flavor to it. Very roasty and bitter. Light dark fruit. Bit watery, sure, but nice flavor.

Uhhh....this is a stout? It was my last beer of the day at Natifest. It was weak, watered down, tad choppy, bitter, a little coffee

750ml - pours dark brown. Nose is jus de chaussette. Toasty caramel. Il y a de l’eau. Bof
