GIJOE (688) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Pours motor oil black with a foamy tan head that dissipates to a ring quickly; sparce lacing. Aroma is toasted marshmallows, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and a touch of burnt toast. Taste is sweet with undercurrents of bitterness that come out more in the aftertaste. A bit thin for a stout, smooth carbonation. Decent brew. On a side note, I did not notice that the bottle is labeled "Live Ale - Keep Refrigerated!" and I kept it in my basement for a good 2 weeks before drinking it at about 58-60 degrees. I don’t know if lack of refrigeration affected the quality. In any case, cold stout is just weird.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a dark brown body and a dense dark beige head. Lots of coffee in the aroma, some chocolate and burnt malts. Dry, full-bodied, with a soft carbonation. Coffee dominates the flavor too. Some toffee and some chocolate too. Lasting finish. Perhaps a bit too focused on coffee, but hey, it’s a breakfast stout. 130806
