Block (1425) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Black pour with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, and a bit of coffee. Very smooth. Light alcohol which doesn’t come through at all.

Salmoniform (678) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Opaque hue with creamy brown head that lingered. Aroma is burnt sugar, coffee, soy, cola, toffee. Mouthfeel is decent with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout but not cloying with a nice astringentness to balance out. Overall this is a decent brew.

UncleKorm (825) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Bomber bottle poured a deep dark brown hue w/ big thick foamy tan head and thick lacing. Moderate to bold aromas of dark breads and licorice. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are licorice, dark roasted malt, dark breads, and coffee. Full bodied and very warm finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gregorymconway (42) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
330ml bottle from the LCBO. Quicky dissipating tan head on top of a black, thick body. Alcohol is present on the nose, along with dark chocolate, espresso, toffee from the malts, roasty, caramel. Some malty sweetness, dark fruit. Full bodied taste, oily with some bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is overly present, but at 8.8% it is to be expected.

nj_BierMaven (106) - Flemington, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2014
From a can, pours inky black with a solid beige head. Intense distribution of tiny bubbles. Malty toasty aroma. Roasted malt and coffee tones with uncommon dryness at this ABV. Expected a syrupy mouthful but no, there is a mystery here in combination of dryness, ABV and mouthfeel. Great stout.

loco_gallego (68) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Stout marron foncée, mousse beige-marron très belle et durable. Arômes café, toastage, chocolat... va sur le sucré. En bouche similaire avec une belle amertume, et un côté huileux rappelant l’olive et radoucissant la balance. Fin de bouche assez sèche malgré tout. Sucrée pour une stout, mais restant balancée.

Soupoftoday (18) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 19, 2014
Probably the best value stout you can get. Perfectly balanced, roasted coffee and chocolate. Medium to thick, velvet mouthfeel that is easy to drink but still satisfying, and not overly sticky or sweet. Pretty much the perfect stout and for its price, unbeatable.

SG111 (126) - - SEP 13, 2014
canned. Pours a dark black. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee. Lots of coffee. Flavor is similar. Big coffee notes and dark chocolate sweetness. Mouthfeel is similar to a porter but more substantial. Dry finish. Quite nice for a foreign stout.

gripweed57 (707) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 13, 2014
330 ml bottle. Dark brown color topped by a rocky beige head. Nice clinging lace. Rich sweet roasted malt aroma. Notes of prunes and roasted nuts. Flavor is dried dark fruit and mocha. Big roasted malt character. Resin hops come through in mid taste. Finish is complex and spicy with a rich cloying aftertaste. The big malty flavor hides the 8.8% ABV nicely. Very good.
