Lubiere (12765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2007
A deep dark stout with a deep dark creamy moka head. Light chocolate aroma, a bit roasted. In mouth, a rather dry stout, boring and plain. On tap at Empire, Nov. 17 2007.

Dogbrick (11322) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Brownish-black color with a medium foamy beige head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, coffee and chocolate. Light-bodied with flavors of burnt malt, coffee and chocolate. The finish is roasty with a mild coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.

On-tap at the brewpub. A dry stout, dark with mocha head and lace. Coffeeish and bitter astringent. Average stout but not bad.
