Very little aroma, pours a two-finger head of a tan color formed of mostly very small bubbles.
Dark ruby-red brown - appears black at first glance, but held up to a strong light source there is just enough light penetration to reveal its ruby slippers.
Solid malt character with enough hops to give it some zing. Meaty and robust with some coffee and toast notes. Not overly carbonated, but sufficient to keep the lacy edge head going, with some sticking to the glass as the volume recedes from consumption.
A notable stout to which others are often compared. This does not seem as rich though, as others I remember from years past. Perhaps the Canadian water has something to do with it, as this was brewed in New Brunswick.

Not normally into higher end beers but this one is perfect. Head is thick and creamy. Goes down SMOOTH. It's served closer to room temp and tastes better that way. I've bought a 6 pack before but cold out of the fridge just isn't anywhere nearly as good. Best by far of all stouts I've ever had.

One of my first loves. Pouring out of a bottle for the first time... ever?
Not quite impenetrably dark. Lovely head, strong lingering lace.
Subdued aromas of malt, caramel, chocolate.
Rich, layered taste. Malted barley, confidently bitter, substantial weight. Flavors leave fairly quickly, but a mild malty bitter remains minutes later.
