JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle from a newsagent in Uxbridge. Deep brown pour with some hints of ruby and a thin, but consistent carbonation. Soft caramel and molasses in the nose, along with some choc and char. Off to a good start. Body is a bit on the thin side, but has a nice consistency - milky with some grit, appropriate to style. Slight fruitiness emerges but generally tastes quite intensely roasty. Good thing, since I enjoy that flavor for a dry stout.

DuffMan (9505) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown, copper highlights. Burnt beans, bitter chocolate, light fruit acids, dry finish. Solid, by the numbers stout.

pityu (622) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle - Clear dark brown colour, medium creamy tan head, good retention. Roasted malt aromas with chocolate and burnt breadcrust. Taste is sweet malty with chocolate and mild coffee notes, some caramel and burnt tones. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily mouthfeel and dry, mild roasted finish. A decent, well ronded stout with nothing extra.

Arcanor (189) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2016
500ml bottled 2016-04-21. Pour very dark reddish brown with no head but a small ring. Aroma of roasted oats malt and sweet coffee notes. The feel is of a light and thin stout, refreshing for the style. Light to medium body. Long finish of light coffee and light bitterness. Like the London cab, it’s doing the job, comfortable and effective.

electrotype (642) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2016
Achetée à la SAQ... On saute sur les rares nouveautés! C’est assez mince et clairement pas impérial comme stout. Cela dit, il y a peu de notes désagrables. Le nez est particulièrement correct. Une version pimpée à 9% et je serais sûrement vendu.

jjsint (2267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2016
Keg tap at the brewery. Black with huge tan head. Salted caramel, salted liquorice, iced black coffee in the aroma. Burnt malt lends a bitter balance to smooth sweet taste. Medium finish. Silky body. Excellent keg stout.

SlovakSniper (5006) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
Un stout qui est presque noir . Une petite tête brune peu tenace. Un nez de malts rôtis, de chocolat et de caramel avec une touche de réglisse. Des saveurs maltées légèrement brûlées sont facilement repérables. Également, des notes de chocolat sont signalées. Le corps est moyen-mince. La finale se fait sur des notes cendrées et terreuses. Ennuyant mais honnête.

mathieuc (3258) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2016 New SKU at the SAQ. Pours a very dark brown with a small offwhite head that leaves low lacing. Nose is of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and light ash. Taste is slightly grapey and lightly sweet with bakers chocolate in the flavor. Lightly ashy, too. Moderate bitterness. Body is medium and carbonation moderate. A pretty good stout like it used to be back in the days!

Grisza77 (538) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Brunatne piwo o słabej panie, która dość szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat intensywny, palony, kawowy. W smaku palone słody, kawa i lekka ziołowość. Goryczka średnia. Ogólnie dość udany stout, wyraźne nuty palone, klasyka gatunku.

Flaska på Hampetorps camping. Svart med beige skum. Doft av choklad och fruktig humle. Bränd smak med kaffebeska och lite malt.
