AleRider78 (672) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2016
Pours a pretty huge brownish foamy head and has a very dark brown appearance. Aromas of grainy malts and mild coffee notes. Flavours are mostly dark roasted malts and coffee, caramel, light chocolate notes and nuts. A little bit of sweetness on the finish. Slightly wet mouthfeel and a slick sensation. Pretty lively carbonation. Dirty lacing. Pretty good stuff.

Adamsville (213) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
Apparence : Presque opaque, très mince col brun sans rétention. Effervescence semble moyenne et lente.
Nez : Café au lait froid, grains rôtis. Simple, mais bonne intensité.
Goût : Sucrée, chocolat au lait, vanille, légère amertume, présence de notes rôties. Finale mi-amère, mi-sucrée. Intensité adéquate.
Sensation : Mince, effervescence moyenne avec un picotement sur la langue, finale courte à moyennement longue. Très légère chaleur d’alcool. O : Rien de renversant, mais pas de fausses notes. L’intensité est très appropriée pour une bière de 5,5%, la touche d’amertume complète bien l’aspect sucré de la bière. Évidemment, on n’a pas une longue finale, mais celle-ci est agréable.

vadie (1231) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
Noir sombre avec une dense et petite robe marron. L’arôme du malt torréfié et un peu du chocolat. En bouche c’est un peu crémeux, avec du malt torréfié et un peu d’houblon dans la finale.

HippyHop (603) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2016
Not sure how I never rated this before. This stuff is more burnt toast and liquorice than chocolate and coffee, though I get notes of all four, plus something vaguely fruity. Nice texture, but I wouldn’t call it full-bodied. Solid and serviceable, but lacks a little something. Still, for $9.99 a sixer, the "qualite-prix" ratio is pretty high.

Franckg (1183) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2015
En fût. Robe noire opaque surmonté d’un col de mousse beige crémeux et bien défini. Arômes de café au lait, crème, malt grillé et léger chocolat. En bouche, café latté, chocolat au lait, noisettes, pointes de houblons. Texture onctueuse et corps moyennement rond. Bonne bière dans le style. Accessible et pas chère.

olio (9283) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2015
341 ml bottle. BBE 28.04.2015.
Pours deep dark red color with a small head. Loads of licorice on the aroma, some dark malts, dark chocolate notes and maybe faint salmiac too. Sweet malts and salmiac on the flavor, some licorice, coffee notes, chocolate and some very faint citric fruit notes, there’s even some slight smoky notes also. Velvety smooth oily palate, slightly old but doesn’t affect the end result at all. Lovely.

Bottled 341ml (Saveur)
Dark brown color, small off-white head. Aroma has dark chocolate, cardboard and toasted maltyness. Medium-bodied. Light lactose in the front, chocolaty with hints of sweet licorice. Milk stouty. Ok.

leghorn99 (232) - Livorno, ITALY - MAY 21, 2015
Il colore è nero con leggeri riflessi ambrati; la schiuma è sottile, beige e di poca persistenza. Al naso si presenta con aroma di caffè freddo e cioccolato, leggera presenza di malto tostato e di affumicato. Al palato, sapori di chicchi di caffè, cioccolato, noci tostate e caramello sono ciò che più emerge. Il corpo è relativamente leggero, molto acquoso per lo stile. Una leggera amarezza, che ricorda il caffè, si fa sentire nel finale. La finitura lascia un’impressione di secchezza sulla lingua, come ci si aspetterebbe da una Dry Stout.

Idiosynkrasie (6415) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 7, 2015
341ml bottle. Jet black colour with small to average, frothy to cremay, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Dark malty aroma, notes of liquorice. Taste is dark malty, slightly chocolately, subtle sweetness, minimally buttery with a toffee touch. OK.
