Beershine (5201) - 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

3oz pour at Max’s. Pours a watery, translucent black with zero head. Toast, brown sugar nose, a little rubbery, some leafy veg. Flavor is really good, toast, chocolate, a little leafy veg, brown sugar, sweet malt. Medium bodied, dry finish.

solidfunk (3605) - 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.

On draft at pro pig, good solid sweet caramelly stout. Interesting flavors

mansquito (3255) - 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.

rodenbach99 (3063) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 10, 2010
Une pinte au Grillon, Bière noire. peu de mousse, nez très café, une touche de noix. mélasse. En bouche la bière ne laisse pas l’impression qu’elle a 7 degrés. J’aurais pensé du fait de l’harvest stout que la bière aurait plus de houblon, il n’était pas assez présent à mon goût. 6/10

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
(Un verre au Saint-Bock) Une solide tête crémeuse qui flotte sur une robe profondément brune, à la limite d’être noire. Un nez de grains rôtis. Une touche de mélasse et de chocolat. Des houblons verts plus ou moins intenses. Des saveurs très intéressantes de grains foncés et chocolatés. Des houblons beaucoup plus vigoureux : une touche quasi mentholée. Une nuée de réglisse. Un alcool bien parfumé. Une bouche de moyenne dimension avec un pétillement très doux. Une texture soyeuse. Une finale forte en amertume de torréfaction. Très bon stout qui mériterait de se retrouver en bouteille.

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle - 750ml. Opaque black body with low carbonation and a thin beige creamy head. Strong, complex malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate and roasty hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Robust, well balanced hoppy taste with malty, roasted coffee, plummy, and brown sugar notes. Ends with a long, sharp hoppy/roasty finish. Very well done!
