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.

[bottle] Nice roasty meaty smoky burnt black malt aroma. Opaque black with small, tan cover and ring. Sweet, smoky burnt mocha coffee chocolate malt flavour with a subtle, roasted barley bitterness. Grainy. Tons of vanilla. Medium to full body, smooth, low carbonation, roasty finish.

500 ml bottle, had it while cooking dinner. Pours a deep black with no head. Smells like mocha coffee. Tastes like milk chocolate, hazelnuts and sweet milk. Almost no bitterness. Body is light. I thought it was quite alright as an aperitif.

Pas mauvais mélange de chocolat et de café, un peu amère au goût. Pas pire ça!

660ml bottle. Good dark black pour, nice small tanhead. Aroma of cocoa powder, roasted malt, and cappucino. Flavour is quite roasty, with some cocoa power, and coffee again. Leaves a nice bitter smokey flavour in my mouth. The mouthfeel is wattery though, and the body is thin.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle (660ml). Opaque black pour, solid creamy tan head. Very pleasant aroma, medium roast coffee malt, mild sour cherry and dry herbal hops. Taste is also pleasant, creamy chocolate-cherry, nice mild roast, quick soft finish. Light carbonation and body, a little acidity, no aftertaste - I thought this was pretty damned good, but my bottle is a least a year old, mayb some aging helped it out.

Bouteille de 660 ml. On aperçoit la bière de couleur noire avec des reflets acajoux et une mousse beige modeste. On détecte des arômes de café-moka, de cappuccino, de vanille française et de caramel. En bouche le corps est mince. On découvre une stout très douce et plus rafraîchissante que plusieurs blondes. Les saveurs sont le café-moka, la vanille française, le coca-cola, le grain grillé et le caramel brûlé. En fait c’est un bon café glacé rafraîchissant.
