Wow, so unexpected from a brewer that isn’t very well known, but they do this one right. Black oily pour into the pint glass, tiny head that is gone in a flash. Almost an Imperial Stout aroma with the coffee and vanilla, but no alcohol burn, in fact this might be the smoothest dry stout I’ve had. Finish is wonderful.

Very light in flavor for a stout. I am not saying it is bad but there is nothing that stands out

Minderbinder (2022) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle 650ml. Pours black with medium diminishing brown head. Good lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee. Taste is of chocolate, roasted malt, very slight bitterness, alcohol. Palate: Carbonation is a tad prickling for the style. Medium-full bodied. Oily texture. Overall: Good. Not really complex, but fairly drinkable.

Thx goes to ferris for sharing this ancient bottle (’99ish). Oxydized goodness, plum, old raspberries, dates, syrupy goodness. I breathed it in for 45 mins. Old ass tasty oxidized greatness, light mocha, weak biscuit, different fruit, oily. Terrible description. Enjoyable beer!

Ferris (5002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle - Vintage old (1999?) - Smells like a tootsie roll, tons of cocoa, molasses and chocolaty goodness. Jet black with a thin brown head. Chocolate and as it smells exactly. Sweet and not sour at all, which is great considering its age. Love it, thanks to CapFlu.

gramity (1460) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Robust malt aroma with a light amount of chocolate. Black color with a small tan head. Mild beginning with a bitter middle and sweet finish. Palate is a little light for a stout.

deyholla (7007) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle thanks to Micheal! Pours near black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of dark grains and roasted malts with a decent amount of dryness. Flavor has more sweet dark grains with roasted malts and just a hint of dryness in the finish.

12 oz with no date purchased at whole foods. First time I've seen this in PA. Pours a dark black but not thick which is good for a dry stout. Little head and zero lacing. Dry malty and cocoa aroma. Mouthfeel is light with a bit too much carb. Taste is very solid. Dark fruit berries very mild smoke and roast coffee. Almost slight my Belgian. No alcohol whatsoever very well done. A classic that more than holds its own with today's competition. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
