chinchill (3993) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Keefe’s Irish Stout on tap at The Henry House in Halifax where it’s sometimes referred to as "Halifax Guinness". Medium-light body that’s smooth and well carbonated but seems a bit to thin. Clear but very dark ruby colored body with a creamy and very durable head. Hints of smoke and char. No fruit notes. Moderately bitter. Lasting aftertaste of very dark roasted grains.

Draught at The Craft Brasserie. Mostly roasted malt flavors with light smokey and nutty notes, bitter coffee finish. Meh quite simple and average brew, nothing memorable.

BreWedge (465) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
On tap @ The Craft TO. Pours an opaque brown with a large mocha head. Aroma is slightly acidic and metallic. Tastes are coffee and roasty malts. Full body, rich and creamy, medium bitter finish. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Kauge (1451) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2015
Tap at the brewpub. Black with well-retaining creamy head. Very roasty, ashy character with hints of smokiness and even chocolate. Soft and light on the palate with ashy dry finish. Textbook, with what seems to be a tiny hint of hops? Nice.

Scopey (11762) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Keg at Stillwell, Halifax. It pours black with a long-lasting creamy tan head. The nose is soft, ash, sweet roast, coffee, cocoa, creamy, earth, dried fruits and liquorice. The taste is bitter, earthy, charred wood, burnt malt, light pepper, treacle, ash, cocoa, liquorice and coffee grounds with a dryish finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Has decent body, but not much flavour to carry it. Fine.

Bamsen78 (4838) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2015
Draught @ Barvolo, Toronto. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and roast with caramellish notes and hints of fruit. Roasty flavour with notes of coffee and touches of yeast and hints of fruit. Roasty and coffeelike aftertaste. Low carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Decent.

Tranquillity (1743) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2015
This is amazing. The body is light but the flavour just amazing, like a kick in the butt! Nice long smokey finish.

Stewiacke (4) - - AUG 29, 2014 does not count
Draft – This stout seems to change keg by keg even if only slightly, usually with a fruity finish from time to time. Not the most interesting beer I've ever had, but not bad at all.
