Had it on tap at Deacon Bradys in Ottawa. Poured a silky blackish with a touch of red. Was served in a Scottish thistle glass that showcased the cascade wonderfully.

A great drinker.... Not heavy at all. I would recommend it to a friend and that's my highest honor.

That's rather good, aroma is muted and it pours without out head, but then it screams wonderful when you taste it, thick, glorious dark malty burnt with a lovely bitterness that sits well. If anything it's too sweet, but it's a cracker!

Heavy mass produced flavor. Thick, but not in a good way. More like motor oil than ale. One of the first brews I've thrown most down the sink.

Jet black pour with a thick, foamy tan head, aromas are roasted barley and light cocoa.

The taste is similar to Guinness (American Guinness), with a little more depth as the cocoa and roasted barley dominate the taste. Feel is rich and creamy. Really well executed, IMHO.

Backlog. 500 ml bottle. Black in color. Little head, but it remains throughout. Tastes like a good U.K. stout. Not on a par with Samuel Smiths, but it’s very satisfying.

Nitro on draft.

Medium roasted quality, bit of creamy, dark fruit, dry, medium minus bitterness. Depth of coffee flavor. Medium mouthfeel. Hints of cocoa and milk chocolate. Restrained sweetness. With its ABV and flavor profile, quite close to an

Nitro can doesn't do this beer justice. Little aroma but great chocolate and vanilla flavour, almost marshmallow like. Not much roast but finishes slightly on the sweet side
