COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bière d’un noir intense, coiffée d’une mousse moka laissant de riches traces de dentelle sur le verre. Nez généreux de café chocolat et de houblons herbacés. Ronde et crémeuse en bouche, l’amertume est soulignée par un trait anisé qui s’efface sèchement dans une douceur de sucre candi.

Gerbeer (1724) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
600 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with full head. Aromas of burnt black coffee and dark chocolate. Dry but not much flavor other than watery black coffee. A session stout...

Bue à la pression. Belle couleur noire, mousse brune. Café et chocolat au nez et en bouche. Faible corpulence due au manque d’alcool. Finale sèche.

Koelschtrinker (10475) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 6, 2014

Idiosynkrasie (3710) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2014
600ml bottle. Black colour with huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma, a herbal spicy touch, hints of grainy coffee surrogat. Taste is dry, roasty dark malty, hints of mocha, a nuttily touch, also a herbal touch somewhere between mint and aniseed; very subtle sweetness; soft palate. Nice, but can’t arouse real enthusiasm.

Frothmeister (551) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2014
600ml bottle. Pours black with a brown edge, and a thin cocoa coloured head that disappeared quickly. Cold coffee notes dominate the nose, with light citrus, and light roasty malt notes. Suprisingly dry, with a metallic bitterness up front that sticks around until the finish, coffee, light smoke, earthy notes, very light dates, and an almost grassy note in the VERY dry finish. There are parts of it I like, but it’s not my preferred stout style.

Lowenbrau (1898) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 4, 2014
12fl oz bottle. Courtesy of Andrés Lúpulo.
In ahort: a dry dry stout.
Pours black with nice off white head, some head retention, poor lacing. Roasty, chickory, some cooked vegetables aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is roasty, quite dry, coffee. Dry aftertaste.

Torrefacto (532) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 20, 2014
Color negro con reflejos rojizos y espuma de un beige claro muy abundante y densa. Aromas de cereales tostados con una intensidad moderada. En boca tiene una densidad media y un final seco y tostado de un amargor equilibrado. Rica y buena representante de su estilo.

glennmastrange (2240) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Tap. Moderate toasted and bitter chocolate for the malt, light resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with mineral notes in the background. Head is large, creamy, light tan, with excellent full coverage lacing and is fully lasting. Color is very dark brown with a red tint. Flavor starts lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, creamy with a soft carbonation and a lightly dry finish. Nothing over the top but a good easy drinking Dry Stout.

allmyvinyl (3097) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2013
375ml from the olds on a cruise, shared at home with the Mrs. Good choice mind you! Loving the giant squid artwork. Dark brown pour, good cream-coloured head and nice lacing. Aromas are herbal and roasted coffee, the coffee coming through more as it opens up. Taste is a little buttery, disappointingly, malt more than hops, and not enough roast coffee. Finishes a bit cloying. Very glad to have tried it though.
