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.

solidfunk (5466) - 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.

Beershine (5218) - 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

JulienHuxley (4317) - 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.

mansquito (4199) - 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.

kaser (4149) - 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.

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.
