Bottle: Poured a deep black color porter with a medium size light brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of black chocolate notes with some cocoa and light dry roasted notes. Taste is also heavy on the black chocolate which is not a bad thing with some great notes of cocoa and light dry roasted finale with hints of coffee. Boyd is smooth with some creamy texture and good carbonation. Easy drinking porter with just enough complexity.

Pint at Saint-Bock on Saint-Denis

A- Opaque black with ruby highlights. Espresso froth brown head, which although thin, stayed until the last sip. Some thin lacing.

S- Black olives and soy sauce, two smells I've never really detected in a beer before. Some sweet hop.

T- A bit of a chalky mineral, sour, roasted malt. A bit of a dark chocolate finish.

M- Feels seltzer like but still smooth. Ends pretty dry.

D- Okay. One or two is enough.

Lots of sourness in a stout ain't really my thing. Won't buy it again.
