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.

solidfunk (3658) - 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.

Ron (2454) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2012
On tap at Tap and Mallet. Black with a frothy brown head. Herbal nose, almost minty. Full body, but so easy to drink. Nice cocoa flavor, bold palate. This is a great harvest stout. The combination of the stout intensity and the clean freshness of the hops is amazing. Great stuff.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
On tap at Trou du diable brewpub. A dark, opaque ale with brownish, almost purple reflects. Light beige head with little retention. Mostly tastes of coffee, maybe a bit of very dark chocolate. Bitterness dominates. A strong cofee finish, with lingering coffee bitterness. Not as thick as I would’ve expected in mouth, has subtle, pleasant notes of alcohol considering its alcohol contents.

(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.

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)
