Bière noire opaque sans trop d’effervescence. Léger col beige disparaissant rapidement . Arômes de chocolat noir, de café et de soupçon de vanille. En bouche, la Greg a une belle rondeur et les houblons frais donnent une amertume dominée par la fraicheur des saveurs. Elle se boit toute seule!

kaser (2712) - 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 (1221) - 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 (4013) - 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 (2194) - 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.

mcberko (6516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2013
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours black with a medium foamy tan / light brown head. Aroma of fresh hops, moderate roasted malt, a bit of chocolate and a bit of coffee. Flavour brings out coffee, fresh hops galore, biscuity malt, and a little burnt stuff. The fresh hops come out big time here, leaving notes of fresh hops and roasted malt. Full-bodied and super easy drinking. Great stuff.

BiereLuc (899) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2013
(Dégustée en fût à l’aveugle, dans un verre noir, dans le cadre de l’Iris du goût) - Nez de caramel avec un peu de houblon. En bouche, le malt grillé se mélange avec un soupçon de noisettes et un peu de fumée. Alcool peu perceptible.
