Brownish ruby body, ring of tan head, not much lace to speak of. A bit of roast, smokey with some darker fruits, fairly odd smelling, yeasty and a lingering note of plastic that seems to persist. Taste has a bit of smoke and charred/ashy flavours as well, dark fruits with a bit of an odd bitterness as well here. High carbonation, light bodied, below average feel for a stout. Really quite unimpressive, not quite a stout and not quite a dark belgian, too many odd smells and flavours to make this enjoyable.

Bottled stamped 08/2014.

(4.0) A: Pitch black with a crimson edge. A bubbly mocha coloured head that lingers for a while and clings to the glass well.

(4.0) S: Quite a strong aroma as I could smell this when it opened. Dark cocoa powder, darker fruits (plums, raisins, fig), and quite a bit of smoke. Definitely belgian-y.

(3.5) T: A slightly odd tart lemon-lime pie controls the taste with some roasted malt notes which follow. Smokey finish. Lightly bitter with equal dryness.

(3.5) M: Light bodied with a higher carbonation. Fairly thin with a bit of slickness.

(3.5) D: Was pretty pumped to try this as part of the Dupont LCBO release but I don’t think I will be revisiting this one. Appearance and aroma were nice but the taste was too sour for my stouts and mouthfeel left a bit to be desired.

Dupont release at the LCBO.

Decent price, didn't see the ratings before buying... fingers crossed.

Dark brown, almost black pour with a fizzy, short lived light tan head. Lacing is minimal.

Some chocolate and coffee, a touch of soda and some dark stone fruits. Sweet biscuits and brown sugar. There is a touch of smoke in the back end.

Dark roasted malts, sweet biscuits, slight metallic taste with something that resembles peanuts.

Light body, high carbonation.

This wasn't terrible, but it wasn't fantastic. This had flavors and aromas that I never imagined or thought would ever go in a bottle. I guess I have some learning still to do.

750 ml caged and corked bottle. Cork says 2011 on it, so I assume it was bottled sometime last year. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with a huge 3 inch head. This one foamed up pretty much as soon as I started the pour, and it took a while for the head to recede so I could get a somewhat full glass. There's a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice but light, it smells like roasted malt, coffee, bittersweet chocolate and some dark fruit. The brew tastes like roasted and burnt/charred malt, coffee, bitter herbs, and a bit of tart dark fruit. I liked the taste of this the longer I drank it. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and has high carbonation. I thought this was a decent enough brew, I liked it.

330ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

A: Pours a deep black color forming a big dark beige to gray bubbled head. Good retention and only few lacings formed and left. However, a very thin layer remains for long on the top

S: Very strong on roasted malts. Notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Milky and sweet too. Very "Stout", I mean, reminds Guinness in the nose. Some bready Belgian yeasts that break a bit the main English character. Light flowery hops in the end

T: Slightly sweet and roasted malts upfront which turns quickly into a dry and mild bitter in the tongue. Notes of dark chocolate, milk, coffee and brown bread. Belgian yeasts. Finish is mainly made of roasted bitterness and some hops. Not bad

M: Light to medium body. A bit creamy. Good carbonation. Aftertaste is bitter and full of roasted malts

O: Easy drinking beer but, at the same time, not very attractive. A British style beer made in Belgian. That's perhaps the most interesting point about this beer

This bottle poured a monster head.
Color is a nice dark walnut.
Has a slight bucolic like nose- yeast, flowery--
The flavor is obscured by a fairly tangy mouthfeel.
flavor is thin w/o much character or something that make's this beer memorable.
There are hops bitterness, a dash of toasted malt, but for this beer to wear the badge of "stout"-- even Belgian style is a bit of a stretch.

One thing I do like is the somewhat lower ABV. I can put down two pints w/o being welded to my chair seat.

Overall it's OK but not memorable, nor a beer I'll hunt for-- lots of others out there...

Had at Mad Capper-no notes. Very light body for a stout detracts from the experience.
