Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Draught at Cask Republic. Pours dark brown with a creamy grayish tan head. Smells slightly smoky, roasty, resiny, earthy, spicy. Tastes of roasted malt, some tea, peppery, full bodied with a slight chocolatey finish. Nice!

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2011
In short: A round creamy stout and a lot of green bitter hops in perfect harmony
How: Tap, a few times. This rating for a fresh pint directly at the brewery
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head
In long: Nose is very hoppy with a green fresh hops pellet signature on top of moderately roasted malts. Body is slender yet doughy and a bit fluffy. Roasted malts, oatmeal sensation (I don’t know if it actually uses oatmeal), burnt harzelnuts, some dried dark fruits and a whole lot of fresh green bitter hops. With its velvety body, hopping and round smooth flavors I thought it felt like some kind of uber-hoppy oatmeal stout. I liked it a lot. This beer was brewed in honor of Greg Noonan, a North-American brewing pioneer. Everybody dies, even beer people. R.I.P. Greg Noonan, Vermont Brewery founder (1951 – 2009). R.I.P. Michael Jackson, beer hunter (1942-2007). R.I.P. Bruno Baekelmans, founder and brewer of Breughel (1959 - I Can’t Wait).

Black coffee tan head good retention. Really woody dry hints of licorice malty choc tones. A bit roasty oak hints of burnt coffee very dry n roasted. Bitter chocolate. Hints of birch. Hint of maple but really bitter dry a touch silky creamy carbonation. Nailed it.

JulienHuxley (5463) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2010
Tap at the brewpub’s anniversary party. Dark pour, creamy tan head. Nice dry grain aromas, very roasted, hops, toasted nuts, some coffee. Taste is well balanced for a strong stout. Slight grainy sweetness easily leveled by the hops and toast flavors. Palate is just creamy enough to coat the inside of the mouth, very enjoyable.

kaser (5235) - 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.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Draft at Mondial. Nice head, black body. Distinct apple pie aroma, which is unexpected and out of place. The baked apple comes out more in the flavors. Silky palate. Different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mansquito (4967) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Farmhouse, Burlington VT 12oz tap ($8.50): Pours a black color with a nice creamy brown head. Aroma is of coffee, chocolate, toffee, booziness, and some other grand stuff. Taste is in the same element. Kind of sweet, but still very manageable. Chocolate and coffee, not quite espresso, but still cool. Good beer and could be either chuggable or sippable, depending on your mood. At this price, I prefer the latter.

On tap @ L’Hermite (Victoriaville). Dark brown with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, nuts and grains. Taste is about the same with a slight hoppy finish. Not too sweet. Medium body. Ok Foreign Stout, but nothing exceptionnal.
