@StoutandLager. Un Stout anglais dans toute sa splendeur qui offre un profil solide sur l’orge grillé. 1 an d’âge (Sept. 2013)
Nez fort aromatique que domine l’orge grillé quasi brûlé, des céréales caramélisées, de la réglisse, et un houblon herbacé. Le maltage fortement torréfié développe un goût de cendre dans la bouche adouci par un petit sirupeux réglissé. C’est un corps sec et acre qui s’offre aux papilles avec une fin assez acre. Ici tl’amertume vient de cette association: brûlé + torréfié + réglisse + torréfié. Le houblonnage venant renforcé cette amérisation. Super léger à boire avec un bel équilibre en bouche. Un délice.

Beersiveknown (2990) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 25, 2014
Keg@6 degrees north
Dark ruby brown with frothy tan head. Roasty nose, light body, astringent burnt toasty, almost carbonised, with very little else. Too cold and gassy, probably some fruit and hop in there but hard to find.

mcberko (6453) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
On tap at Buxton Tap House, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out light roasted malt, dry cocoa and oats. Flavour brings out lots of dry oats, bitter dry cocoa and roast. Weak, but well-balanced. Not the most exciting, but everything is balanced well. Good one.

ATulloch (93) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours an almost jet black with very minimal light caramel head. Aromas of fresh coffee, bread and stale smoke. Nice taste with hints of again coffee and dark chocolate. Nice.

kramer (4979) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a fizzy one finger beige head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is nicely roasty and chocolaty with just a little light roast coffee. The flavor is a little on the thin side, but I guess that’s Ok, it being a session strength beer. Some decent roast and burnt coffee on the finish. A little light bitterness to help balance things and keep the sweetness in check. Light bodied and very easy drinking with soft gentle carbonation. Pretty decent Stout, I think I could have a few of these guys.

onceblind (4067) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Black pour under a thin light beige cap. Nice earthy chocolaty nose with a little bit if hazelnut. The flavor is initially sweet with a bit of cocoa and some light nutty esters, and finishes with a dry earthy bitterness that’s still kinda quiet and lets the sweet-ish cocoa tones through.

KeefOz (917) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2014
Poured an opaque black with a slightly brown edge tint. Light tan bubbly head about 5mm thick retained poorly but laced OK. Aroma faintly of roast coffee, molasses, malt. Taste bitter roasted malt and slight coffee becoming less bitter as it warmed. Lighter body than I was expecting for a stout. Smooth with a bitter finish.
