Lubiere (10840) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2007
Coca cola like dark brown with a thick creamy moka head. A lightly rancid chocolate malt aroma, with notes of coconut. In mouth, a rather run of the mill stout, light, thin, and uneventful, with light roasted malts, no hops, and lightly bitter finish. BB Jan 2007. Bottle from Capflu (but this used to be available at LCBO a few years back.)

Hoser (370) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 4, 2007
Bought this at the Kelowna Orchard Park location didnít really get the oyster part of this but thought it was a well made stout. page 308 of Michael Jacksonís Great Beer Guide and only 320 of 500 Classic Brews to go.

almopina (87) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 4, 2007
Deep black color with a thin beige-brown head. No carbonation. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Spicy and coffeeish finish. Overall, good beer with many coffee notes, but a bit disappointing (too expensive).

Enjoyit (3571) - Vadum, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2007
Dark amber of color, beige head. An aroma of coffe, stones and some notes of salt. The flavor has notes of coffee, roasted malt, salt and smoke.

Grovlam (4160) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
Bottle. Not as good as expected. Head was spare creamy and slightly off-white with quickly diminished. Fair lacing. Colour was of cause black. Light notes of malt, predominant being chocolate, coffee, roasted. Medium bodied with a, what I would call slightly thing texture for a Stout. Carbonation was flat. Light sweet and bitter flavour. Boring Stout.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle sampled on 7/2/06: Pours a transparent dark mahogany brown with a thin ring of light tan head. Soft, mildly salty and sweet dark malty aroma has some faint roasted milk chocolate character. Body starts with some mild smoke and sweet dark maltiness drying some toward a thinner, mild finish that has some light fruity notes. Too one dimensional.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 18, 2007
Among all the pale lagers I found this at a touristic super market in Spain. Pitch black colour, nice creamy light brown long lasting head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Flavour is smooth and creamy, roasted maltiness, nice chocolate, bit fruity. An easy to drink very tasty brew indeed!

Tranquillity (1450) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle. "Dark - Rich - Smooth"? Blah. Dark yeah, but not exactly rich in flavour, character or palate. Pours dark brown/black with a nice looking head which disappears quickly. Very thin. Some stout flavour is probably there, but it was hard to find smoke, malt or chocolate. Aroma of coffee and some chocolate.

berkshirejohn (5014) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2006
UPDATED: APR 7, 2009 A dark ruby colour with a caramel head which rapidly disappeared leaving an unattractive pint. Chocolate malt aroma; body is thin but smooth, again dominated by the chocolate malt, leaving a dry coffee aftertaste. Not outstanding.

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 1)Sour, metallic, slightly blackcurranty nose. Very thin and headless for a stout. Looks like coke 5mins after the pour. Flavour leaning towards chocolatey malt sweetness with a touch of smoky coffee. Alright, but nothing remotely special. 2) Morrisons. 1 of an 8 beer haul: credit where itís due. Photogenic pitch crowned with a fat cappuccino collar. Aroma of rust, heavily toasted scorched grain, dark bread and discreet plum and blackberry undercurrents. Reasonable slightly buttery well done flavour with elements of prune and black coffee. Crude burnt paper roast and something vegetal like carob or locust bean creeping in. Late almond black cherry and cheap booze. Serviceable and handsome. 645312.
