3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A beutiful black beer with bubbles that runs downwards as a real stout, top that off with a thick creamy brown head. The aroma is slightly roasted, while the flavor is lovely sweet and roasted, combined with notes of nuts. The mouthfeel is very smooth. I have a hard time really describing it - but it is a really nice stout.

Great black beer with a sustained creamy moka head. Matly chocolate aroma with some hops. Bitterness from hops overlay the chocolate malts, with a touch of coffee grinds, a bit lactic . Good body, and creamy.

Draft... Pitch black with a nitro-induced, creamy, light brown head. Chocolate, vanilla and berry notes in the aroma. The flavor is fairly well-balanced and a bit burnt. A touch woodsy. Light bodied and silky with pillow soft carbonation. Lengthy, bone-dry finish with some charred notes.

Above-average beer (though only average stout) enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub.Cold coffee that has been roasted but is creamy, definately affected by the nitro-tap treatment. Astringent bitter yet still well malted. Coffee aroma. Grainy and creamy mouthfeel. Surprising 33 IBU and under 5% abv.

On tap at Le Cheval Blanc, pours a dark amber brown with a small light brown head. Aroma of light caramel malts and dry fruits - doesn’t smell like a stout. Flavour of subtle dark fruits and caramel malts, some very light roasted malt. Very light-bodied for a stout. Decent flavours but the body doesn’t strike me as a stout. Weak, but drinkable.

Black with a nice khaki head. Roasty sweet aroma with notes of mocha. Pleasant mouthfeel but a bit light as you drink more. - Which I now see accurately described as milky by MartinT - Nice malty flavour with slight hints of chocolate and mocha. Overall a bit simplistic but quite nice.

On a nitro tap at La Cheval Blanc. Pours a deep black with a medium tan head. Deep roast aromas and a touch of chocolate. Thin (due to the nitro) and smooth. This might be better without the nitro. Nice roast flavors. Ends with a long roasty bitterness. At 4.5% this would make a decent session stout (if one could tolerate the bedlam that is La Cheval Blanc’s bar scene… I couldn’t), though the bitterness may be a bit heavy handed for that. Tried all 8 of their beers on tap when I went, and this was the clear winner, by quite a bit.
