1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
The worst stout I have ever had. I usually rate the beers I liked, not the ones that find just good... but this, as with the 3 other beers I tried from la Tour à bière, is just point blank bad!
Aroma is of hay, maybe some coffee, and over roasted. Color, dark, very flat looking dark, no head. Taste is just awful. Oily texture... Best I can advise, is stay away from La tour à Bière beers!

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from a bottle it is a clear brown color with a tan head. The aroma is strong vanilla and the taste is thin and the flavor melds into coffee

From a 650 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a clear cola with a tan head. Flavors of tobacco and leather. Thin, but pretty flavorful.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to Minderbinder for that one. Pours a dark brown with a thin beige head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of chicory, coffee and ash. Taste is of green pepper, coffee and ash. I would usually just frown and complain about all the ash but it isn’t really as bad as I thought it would be. Not stellar by any mean, still. Body is light, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is thin and acidic. Overall this wasn’t a good stout while still beating my expectations, lol.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
How: Bottle (660 ml). Courtesy of Minderbinder, thanks! Split 3-ways.
>>> A boring and watery stout, but less offensive than expected.
+ Fairly well balanced, but mostly because it’s tasteless
− Super light (watery) body and chalky mouthfeel
− Mild, but weird acidity in the tasty
Flavors: Roasted malts, chalk, cocoa, green peppers, ashes

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle big big thanks to Minderbinder. Hazy black pour with thick foamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, light leathery notes, tobacco, smoky. Taste is tart, sour roasty notes. Palate is light bodied, fizzy. Meeeehhh.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
660ml bottle served at 6 degrees in an imperial pint glass:
Pours a semi dense, opaque black robe showing lots of carbonation and topped by a thin hazel head, letting it seem very cola-like. Retention is minimal and the head quickly fades to a porous layer.
The nose delivers moderate notes of dark roast coffee beans, subtle dark chocolate and hazelnuts and fresh earthy hops.
On the tongue you get a very mild coffee flavour paired with subtle hazelnut sweetness. It almost tastes like coffee liquor only with a light bitter finish. Mouthfeel is clean all the way and also seems a bit sharp.
This is a light Stout with a nice coffee flavour I enjoyed overall. I do enjoy more robust encounters but despite its lightness, this Stout is well balanced.
