GT2 (7899) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Tap at Churchkey. The pour is a deep bistre with a medium, reddish coffee head. Nose is really fantastic: mild smoke/smolder with brown sugar and maple raisin oatmeal. Really an incredible nose. Taste is bitter coffee, sweet hazelnut butter/Nutella, dark chocolate brownie. Mild lactic finish. It may a bunch of unintended flaws (perhaps mild diacetyl, mild lactic sour, mild phenols); but I really enjoyed it.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2009
In short: A milky, roasted and fruity stout with an annoying sourness that I don’t think was supposed to be there.
How: Tap at brewpub. Was described as 5% (currently 6.5% on ratebeer)
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head
In long: Strong nose of black coffee and dark fruits. Taste of black coffee with extra milk and no sugar. Medium roastiness. Very milky, I think the lactose foundation might be a bit too upfront me here. A big and full body despite being a “small” beer, a pleasant recurrent theme at this pub it seems. Velvety mouthfeel. Most is well so far but there was that little kind-of-fruity sourness note that really didn’t sit well with me. And this little sourness was so “off” that it almost tasted like an early infection symptom. This was by far my least favourite of the four pints I had at this pub but it is the highest rated. So I don’t know if what I drank was the intended result or if there was a problem with the batch or my pint. But I’ve never been afraid to go against the grain. I once went to the mall wearing a blue shirt that totally didn’t match with my brown socks. And nothing else.

A deep dark stout with a thick moka head. Im aroma, pungeant chocolate and roasted coffee, nutty and creamy. In mouth, aniseed and light nutty chocolate, creamy, silky, light lactic notes, very organic, a bit light bodied, but classy. On tap at brewpub, May 9 2009.

JulienHuxley (2549) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2011
Tap @ Soirée des Brasseurs. Dark pour with thin brown head. Aroma is quite lactic, burnt grain, oats. Flavor is quite lactic as well, slight sourness, sweet grain, slightly bitter burnt toast/oat finish. Good palate, sticks together better than most sweet stouts I’ve had but still light and refreshing. Good.

Sweet caramel and stale coffee aroma. Taste is rather sweet, with lots of ash and caramel, coffee grounds and chocolate.

Fred82 (2093) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2010
On tap at Loup Rouge
Appearance : Pitch black with a medium creamy head. Nice lacing.
Aroma : Chocolate, sweet, coffee. Roasted malt and some hops.
Taste : Roasted malt with some hops. A bit sweet but rather dry and roasty. Finish is quite bitter.
Overall : Pretty good beer. Very mellow due to the oatmeal. I would have this one again for sure ! Looking at the ratings, it looks like it may be hit or miss...
