Dark brown with an amber tinge when held to the light, and topped 5 fingers of deep, beige head.

Smells of coffee, stale urination, and chocolate.

Tastes of chocolate, dark coffee, its quite sweet, with a hint of umami.

Very smooth, thick body with a little carbonation.

Got this in Gatineau, drinking in Muskoka, April 25th, 2018. Really well done brew.

Pours very dark black with an ample head. Smells of coffee, vanilla, and milk. Taste is smooth and creamy with coffee, vanilla, and chocolate vying for supremacy. Very thick and creamy mouth feel; although, quite a heavy beer. Overall, it's a good milk stout which I've had a few times and will certainly have again.

I f you like milk stouts this is one of the best. It is rich and creamy, filled with chocolate, caramel and coffee goodness.The 9% abv is hidden but there is some warmth as you slowly empty your glass. Perfect for a fall or winter night with some sweet pulled pork or a nice piece of aged cheddar. Read the other reviews. Found easily in Montreal.

Poured a 500mL bottle into a Spiegelau stout glass
L- Extremely thick, nearly pitch black, thin off white head
S- Huge aroma on the nose. Espresso, caramel, chocolate, cream, vanilla, dark fruits, a bit of citrus
T- Same as the nose with more emphasis on the fruit and chocolate plus the edition of fragrant herbs.
F- Amazingly creamy with a nice balance between sweetness and dryness
O- Quality milk stout that does everything it should.

500ml bottle poured into Sam Adams pint glass.

Pours a very dark brown-red with almost no head, just a thin scrim of tan bubbles that leave sparse blotches of lace as it recedes.

Smells of fresh coffee grounds, dark chocolate coated berries, molasses, roasted walnut and faint herbal hops.

Tastes of rich dark chocolate, creamed coffee, mixed berry fruitiness, more roasted walnut, burnt brown sugar, sweet black licorice and more gentle herbal hops.

Feels surprisingly light. Medium bodied with zippy carbonation. Finishes dry with mildly warming alcohol.

Verdict: Highly recommended. A great beer after coming in from the cold.
