Dark brown and opaque with a thick finger of rusty brown, beige head.

Smells of dark chocolate, vanilla, Dutch salty black liquorice, umami, soy sauce and cream.

Tastes of chocolate, rich, dark malts, slightly sweet with hints of vanilla and cocoa.

Medium, slightly oily body, with foamy carbonation. Smooth and rich feel to it.

Got in Gravenhurst at LCBO tonight, Feb 3rd, 2018. Drinking in Muskoka. Rich and well done brew.

Looks lovely with thick, brown head. Overflowing with chocolate and roast malt smells.Tastes divine! Rich chocolate and roasted flavours followed by an assertive hop bitterness. Sweet caramel and malt then ending in dry bitterness. Slight oily feel on the tongue that is in no way a negative. Superb brew!

From a can, pours as opaque black with a dense foamy head that is the darkest brown I've ever seen in beer foam. Distinct malty aroma. Full mouth feel with up front roasted malt, toffee and caramel flavors. I can't distinguish the type of hops but the bitter aftertaste is undeniable. So I recon it's a milder Cascade hops. This is a world class beer, but a little too sweet for an all-night-beverage.

A stout that just seems like a mundane stout, without any highlight, save perhaps the smoothness. Peche Mortel has this kind of smoothness but hey, this doesn't come close to Peche. Perhaps it is coffee that helps a stout. Or maple. Or a list of other things. But a stout on its own, is just a stout.

Bottled 10/24/17.

Pours the blackest of blacks. Completely opaque without a hint of another color even in highlight. Two-fingers of brown rocky head linger, as impenetrable as the body. Big bands of lacing stick to the glass as the liquid's level recedes.

Smells of dark roasted coffee, brown bread, vanilla and a touch of alcohol vapor.

Strong coffee taste. Sweet dark malts galore. Quite bitter (75 IBUs) without tasting particularly hoppy. The bitterness really lingers. The sweetness is right in line with the roastiness, and neither overpowers.

Mouthfeel is oh so creamy and smooth. Tiny bubbles of carbonation make this one easy to hold in the mouth. Sticky and resinous.
