pintbypint (2582) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2011
360ml brown bottle. Pours deep dark brown with mahogany highlights. Great head - quite thick, creamy, longlasting, beige in colour. Nose has dark chocolate and a decent level of roasted malt. Very light hop note. Roasty malt in the mouth, some coffee and chocolate. Decent roasted malt bitterness and light hops in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Dry stouts do not often excite me, but this is quite enjoyable, would have no problem sessioning this.

asheft (2499) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2007
[on tap at Popeye] Vanilla and bubblegummy roasted barley aroma. Almost opaque, dark brown under a nitrogen foam cover. Nice oaky vanilly roast flavour with hazlenut and caramel accents. Also a little coffee and toastiness. Bitterness comes mostly from dark malts. Medium to full body with low carbonation and a not unpleasant, lingering malt bitterness.

This was great for the low ABV. I was expecting a guinness clone. What I got was a flavourful, big stout which I could have drunk all day. Lots of dark malty goodness. They done good here.

VsXsV (2235) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2013
Bottle. Almost opaque deep brown liquid with small light tan head. Aroma of smoke, caramel, biscuit, light butter and light coffee. Taste is dry and light bitter with notes of peat, smoke, caramel and light butter. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. A bit smoky and also not that roasted.

mds (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2005
bottle. deep dark brown with a red tinge around the edges and no head. the aroma has some sweet raisins and other dark fruits with a slight tingly carbonation and roasted chocolate. the body is thin with faint raisin flavours and caramel. it’s decent but nothing spectacular.

maekchu (2052) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle (gift from Neko-chan). Smooth chocolate roastiness with some coffee notes. Dark brown with a 1-cm light beige head. Creamy mild chocolate flavor. Pretty consistent from initial to finish, without much development in flavors. Thin-medium body. Had this years ago, and it wasn’t nearly this good. A very pleasant mild stout.

thomat (2013) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown with medium tan head. Malty and fruity notes. Malt, fruit, caramel and smoke. Medium body with a bitter sweet finish.

shoulderbroken (1986) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 16, 2012
Keg at the Harajuku taproom. Dark brown with small golden head. Aroma is soy sauce, roasty, bit of coffee, touch of smoke (and bacon). Taste is slightly creamy but mostly roasty bitterness. More of the savoury meat and soy sauce thing. Long lasting roasty finish. Bit of sweet malt hidden in there too. Nice and sessionable.

Capa (1981) - Manama, BAHRAIN - FEB 10, 2007
Poures deep brown with red highlights. Has a creamy, light tan head. Aroma is light. Notes of malts and roasted coffee beans. Flavor is semi-sweet with a bit of bitterness. Coffee, chocolate and roasted malts are blended rather well making this a pretty tasty brew. It would be nice if the flavor was a little stronger and had a fuller body, but it’s a pretty good stout. I’ll pick this one up again.

Ktwse (1947) - SWEDEN - APR 20, 2013
Pours black with about a finger of light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, german sausage, light leather. Taste is roasted bitter, not very nuanced all the way through. Finish is lingering, bitter. Body is a tad too light but carbonation is well controlled.
