bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Bottle from Half Time. Pours black with a 4 finger fizzy/foamy dark tan head. Aroma is sweetish burnt malt with a chocolate lilt. Med body with fizzy carb. Flavor is not all that sweet. Theres a lot of dark malt flavor, with mere hints of chocolate and coffee. There’s a dryish/cereal aspect in the finish. Not bad, just nothing I can previously recall.

Lubiere (10438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2004
April 2004. Clear dark black with a nice aroma of torrefied coffee and vanilla. Little malts and hops, and rather watery. Low carb malt???

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2010 Dark black pour. Sikly texture. Soft maltiness and a fairly restrained roasty aorma. A little but of dusty cocoa. A little bit of a berryish fruit note on the back. Soft and a little bit oaty. It’s a pretty nice brew. Tap at HDG. Dark black beer, thin head. Aroma is fairly chocolatey with a cola-like herbal malt character. Light sweetness. Flavour is only okay, thin-bodied despite the light oaty flavour. Meh, really dry tasting... works better as a dry stout, but it would still only be average. 7 4 6 2 12

MartinT (8127) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 My Bottom Line:
Toasted bread and delicate yeasty fruitiness carve a landscape between the Brown Ale world and that of Stouts. Not that it is badly brewed, but this is just not what I want from a Stout of any kind.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slim veil of foam tops the brownish black.
-Earthiness accompanies the toasted malt character; roastiness is strangely frail.
-The body is thin and the carbonation fizzy; again, not much of a Stout in the mouthfeel department.
-The finish is a fast fade out of the flavor profile.

On tap at the brewpub.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Bottle: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a thin, clingy-lacing light tan head. Has a sweet toasty caramel nose with a touch of milk chocolate and hazelnuts. Starts with good fullness and semi-sweet dark maltiness with some light roasty notes and pleasant bitter balance toward a slightly drier toasty finish. A pretty drinkable and true to style sweet stout.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks zvikar. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, graham crackers and some roast. Sweetish flavor with roast and some chocolate. Medium-bodied.

blipp (6326) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep deep brown with a beige head. Light roasted and caramel malts, with a low bitterness. Hints of chocolate sweetness. Pretty good.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
Mostly opaque black pour. Minimal lace surrounds the light tan head. The first impression after smelling is of wax - it,s hard to find that appealing in a stout. Sweetish and bready example with a fair toasted malt background, but little roastiness. Powdery ashes tones are perceived, but it,s subtle and remains bready more than anything. Light-medium bodied. Dull malts and hopless.
