Overall, a very nice beer. Quite dark, I was a bit disappointed in the smell, but since I was having it outside, I may have been experiencing interference from flowers. The colour is quite dark worthy of a stout, and it retains the head for quite a while.

Excellent stout! A teeny, tiny shot of peated scotch finishes it off amazing well. ...for my humble taste buds.
I’d like to see it aged in peated scotch barrels.
A great summer drink because the flavours come out as it warms...the antithesis of lager!

Taste very much like a Classic Guinness Extra Stout. No disrespect to Guinness but that style of beer is sort of old new & already done. Try to be more creative & innovative with your stout. If you have had the Guinness Extra Stout then you have had this beer as well. Cheers! B (85-89) score range

I didn't like this beer the first time I tried it, but it has really grown on me. Tastes very heavily of roasted malt and oatmeal, with hints of dark chocolate and espresso. Overall very drinkable but not lacking in flavor, for a cheapish low ABV craft beer this is as good as it gets. Props to McAuslan for bringing quality craft beer to the masses, you can find this stuff at every corner store in Quebec.

I've been hesitant to give this beer a perfect score in any ratings I've done (what makes a beer perfect anyway?) but if it's not perfect it's in the ballpark. It doesn't give you much to complain about; perhaps it's only flaw is that it's complexity and richness is off-putting for novices (and is that really a flaw?)

Pours a cola colour with beautiful thick tan caramel head. Smells of coffee with cocoa hints and piney hop notes come through. Taste of dark roasted coffee with that balanced bitterness. Nice strong malts and bitter finish.

This is simply my favourite beer. The oatmeal gives it body and substance. The colour is virtually black with a large beige head. The taste is exceptionally balanced. I get more espresso than chocolate and it's hoppy enough to beautifully balance the sweetness. It is filling and should be considered a sipping beer. Absolutely delicious.
