On draft at Tap & Barrel, Vancouver.

Chocolate-amber with beige film that trails.
Tobacco, smoke, cherry and meat on the nose - more brown than stout.
Red berry, root beer, barky tang and chicory bite to end.
Cola finish and brown sugar linger.
Med, chewy, round.

Almost not a stout - lots of sugar, no roast, doesn't clean up after itself. Too sweet, no coffee, no chocolate and did I mention too sweet? Pinkie toe of God, maybe.

Pours black with a light brown head. Dissipates rather quickly.

Aroma of coffee and dark malts.

Taste of coffee, dark malts and some light dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and lightly cleansing.

Overall, a very drinkable beer. Enjoyable and sessionable.

Big thanks to wordemupg for this rarity.

Poured from a growler and shared a little with my wife.

Appearance: Pours a real thick black body that unfortunately has no head though i can coax a tiny bit of foam.

Smell: Heady and strong with some charred wood and chocolate.

Taste: Nice mix of wood, chocolate and coffee. Very roasted and good.

Mouthfeel: Obviously the lack of carbonation hinders it a bit but it does have a slick smoothness, some moderate bitterness and very easy to drink.

Overall: Despite its lack of carbonation, a true testament to the brew's quality as the flavors and aroma still shine through.
