Barley Days Brewery - Working Manís Stout
Very dark ruby red pour with a thin light head that faded quickly. Weak earthy scent. Very full mouth. Lots and lots of dark chocolate and malts. A bit tart. Really smoky malts in the aftertaste. Itís like itís trying a bit too hard.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I tried this beer on draught on April 13, 2012 at "Cíest What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a solid black colour with brown edges and a creamy brown head. Aroma was coffee, roast, and chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, better than a lot of canadian stouts. Flavour is slightly sweet and choclatey with ample nut and coffee notes thrown in.

A dark dirty stout with a thin mocha head. In aroma, a sweet fruity chocolate with light boiled veggie notes, a bit off. In mouth, a light watery stout with bitter metallic notes, astringent, rather unpleasant. On tap at Arrow and Loon, March 28, 2012.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Cíest What?. Black murky pour like French press coffee, light tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee, a little boozy, dark chocolate. Oily mouthfeel, quite dry. Same roasted notes with molasses. Finishes sour like a tamarind candy. Didnít feel balanced to me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Cíest What. Deep black pour with a creamy tan head. The aroma is quite lovely. Lots of mild coffee and cocoa along with a lovely soft palate. Moderate sweetness but lots of malt complexity mid-palate. This really contrasts with a lot of brews that typify the North American approach to stout brewing. It light, but not thin; itís roasty but not charred; itís balanced but not bland. Man - I was expecting nothing and am pleasantly surprised. Kudos to the brewer.

Caramelized malts and molasses on the nose, with hints of roasted barley. Pours a very dark brown with no head. Roasted malts upfront with molasses with a roasted marshmellow flavor. Somewhat sweet. Not bad, best Iíve had from this brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Victory - came near-black with a cinnamon head that lasted for about half the pint and left meagre lace. Aroma of bitter chocolate, a touch of dark roasted coffee, even a bit of a winy note. Flavour is nice, dry dark cocoa powder, black licorice, roasted barley. Dry finish. Very nice stout from Barley days, would get again.

2010-01-14. Black body with a nice frothy brown head. 5 flavour is quite dry and roasty up front, light cocoa notes, very light tangy notes in the finish. Aroma is mild lightly roasty and dusty. Average plus palate. Pretty decent stout but a bit drier than my own preference. Probably the best I have had from Barley Days. On tap at Volo, Toronto
