A: BLACK, can't see any hues through it. Nice thick head that is off white and then settles to a thin film and a nice rim around the glass.

S: Coffee, chocolate, black cherries, some sour notes.

T: Some sourness present, strong coffee in the back of the pallet, smoky chocolate, cherries again.

M: Well carbonated for a "belgian stout". Medium-full body.

O: I just love the flavours of this beer. Some belgian notes are well present.

Poured into a Leffe goblet. Dark caramel chocolate in colour, with about a half inch of fluffy head that settles into a very thin ring. Some not overly pleasant flakes of sediment swirl around the glass before finally settling. Not the most attractive brew out there.

Nose isn't bad - dry roasted grain, a bit of fruit - cherry or strawberry - with a mild sweetness and a hint of Belgian yeast. Smells like a Belgian dark ale, which is more or less what I had expected.

But boy does it not taste like one. Extremely dry, tart, almost citric, which utterly dominates the brew, leaving little else for the taste buds to detect. It was okay for the first few sips or so, but man the finish really drags on. Very, very dry with a Belgian yeast component. Mouthfeel is certainly of the Belgian variety, and is lighter bodied and a bit slick.

It was intended to be a British-Belgian stout hybrid (I think), but the end result was certainly far less than the sum of its parts. Not a fan of this brew at all, which is a shame, as I was really looking forward to this. Don't think I'll be drinking this again.

Brownish ruby body, ring of tan head, not much lace to speak of. A bit of roast, smokey with some darker fruits, fairly odd smelling, yeasty and a lingering note of plastic that seems to persist. Taste has a bit of smoke and charred/ashy flavours as well, dark fruits with a bit of an odd bitterness as well here. High carbonation, light bodied, below average feel for a stout. Really quite unimpressive, not quite a stout and not quite a dark belgian, too many odd smells and flavours to make this enjoyable.

Bottled stamped 08/2014.

(4.0) A: Pitch black with a crimson edge. A bubbly mocha coloured head that lingers for a while and clings to the glass well.

(4.0) S: Quite a strong aroma as I could smell this when it opened. Dark cocoa powder, darker fruits (plums, raisins, fig), and quite a bit of smoke. Definitely belgian-y.

(3.5) T: A slightly odd tart lemon-lime pie controls the taste with some roasted malt notes which follow. Smokey finish. Lightly bitter with equal dryness.

(3.5) M: Light bodied with a higher carbonation. Fairly thin with a bit of slickness.

(3.5) D: Was pretty pumped to try this as part of the Dupont LCBO release but I don’t think I will be revisiting this one. Appearance and aroma were nice but the taste was too sour for my stouts and mouthfeel left a bit to be desired.

Dupont release at the LCBO.

Decent price, didn't see the ratings before buying... fingers crossed.

Dark brown, almost black pour with a fizzy, short lived light tan head. Lacing is minimal.

Some chocolate and coffee, a touch of soda and some dark stone fruits. Sweet biscuits and brown sugar. There is a touch of smoke in the back end.

Dark roasted malts, sweet biscuits, slight metallic taste with something that resembles peanuts.

Light body, high carbonation.

This wasn't terrible, but it wasn't fantastic. This had flavors and aromas that I never imagined or thought would ever go in a bottle. I guess I have some learning still to do.

750 ml caged and corked bottle. Cork says 2011 on it, so I assume it was bottled sometime last year. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with a huge 3 inch head. This one foamed up pretty much as soon as I started the pour, and it took a while for the head to recede so I could get a somewhat full glass. There's a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice but light, it smells like roasted malt, coffee, bittersweet chocolate and some dark fruit. The brew tastes like roasted and burnt/charred malt, coffee, bitter herbs, and a bit of tart dark fruit. I liked the taste of this the longer I drank it. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and has high carbonation. I thought this was a decent enough brew, I liked it.
