mathieuc (1458) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2014
On tap at Saint-Bock. Pours a dark brown with a thin beige rim that surprisingly leave good lacing. Nose is quite simply of dark chocolate. Taste is of the same chocolate but this time you also get some licorice and roasted malt. Body is medium and carbonation just the same. Overall a nice stout, nothing harsh or out of balance.

Stephane_Houle (135) - - OCT 29, 2014
Apparence: D?une couleur noir opaque, elle est coiffée d?une mousse moyenne d?une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt torréfié et de notes subtiles de chocolat. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps amble. Au goût, c’est des saveurs de malt torréfié. De durée moyenne, il y a quasiment aucune effervescence et une légère pointe d’amertume. Fiche technique Style: Foreign Stout

thorongil2 (1351) - , Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
(tap at Cask Days 2014) clear very dark brown colour with a small brown head; aroma of tropical fruit ,stewed fruit; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish; half way between a stout and an ipa

kaser (3025) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Sweet and sugary stout. Like a coffee. Chocolate and even fruity notes. Tasty. Fluffy cotton candy aroma. Really good. Had this on draft at the Hopfenstark brewpub.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
Dégustée (en fût) le 1er juin 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D20C5K424i). Bière noire opaque. Col mince beige foncé. Légère odeur de café. Un peu forte en amorce, peu sucrée, très amère en finale. Saveur un peu aigre pour une stout. Léger goût de chocolat noir. Pas très typée stout au café/chocolat noir. Drôlement balancée. Un peu décevante pour ce prix (5 coupons= $5 pour un verre de dégustation de 4 oz d’une stout correcte mais sans grande qualité).

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 tap on the premises. dark brown pour with a nice light beige head, some retention and lacing. dark fruity roastiness, burnt caramel - slightly ashy, minerals, booze, faint nuttiness, some burnt and bitter resin. moderate carbonation, light body - slightly lacking, grassy-mineral-bitter coffee finish. ok.

AlainG (1323) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Après une disco soleil, cette Greg semble manquer de délicatesse, du moins, elle rentre dans l’dash. C’est noir comme le poêle et un mince col de mousse flotte au-dessus du liquide. Un nez d’huile à chauffage, de grains brûlés, de céréales grillées, de "primer", du houblons bien vert avec des élans de chocolat noir, qui semble ouvrir la porte en bouche. L’amertume est assez prononcée, solide et il y a ici aussi des traces de peinture à l’huile. On goûte des soupçons anisés, chocolatés, herbacés et alcoolisés. (898-121113)

solidfunk (4326) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Well-done foreign stout. All the right mix of coffee and espresso here. Pours dark brown with amazing mocha-tinted head, especially for a cask beer. Nice bitter finish. Very well-balanced and well done overall. It’s nice to see Hopfenstark do a great beer that isn’t a saison. Great effort for one of the more uncommon styles out there. Cask Days 2013.

Lukaduke (2326) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft at Pro Pig. Pours a rich black color with a khaki finger of foam. Roasted chocolate, smooth creamy mouthfeel, touches of coffee and dark fruit. Long roast on the finish with a touch of grassy bitterness.
