Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2010
In short: An archetype of the basic session stout. Nice brew.
How: Tap at Vermont Brewer’s Festival 2010
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head
In long: Nose is very roasted. Taste has is very roasted, some coffee, some chocolate, some dark fruits. A pleasant bitterness that seems to come from the roastiness as much as the hops. Medium body, merdium carbonation. All in all this is a very standard stout with a bit of everything. Nothing special but it is nonetheless a beer I could drink all night long. Another decent session beer from this brewpub that with no reputation, or so I have been told numerous times.

A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. A light sweet chocolate aroma with light lactic points. In mouth, a nice chalky chocolate with nice bitterness, a bot herbaceous. On tap at VT Brewers Fest, July 17 2010.

Dark Brown pour is wonderful to behold in the glass. Aroma is dark malted chocolate with some creaminess as well. Mouthfeel is very nice, creamy, not overly viscous, very nice. Flavor is some milk chocolate and chocolate malt with some cream. very basic stout flavors but rather tastey. Overall ok, but not great.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2010 On tap at the Blue Mermaid. Pours a dark brown/black color with a 1/2" beige head. Aroma was milk chocolate, malt and light coffee. Moderate body with low carbonation, quite smooth. Roasted malt and chocolate flavor with a coffee background. Bitter, lingering finish. I wanted to share the fact that I had a chance to try this out of a wooden firkin at the N.E. Brewfest at it was pure magic. It was so smooth it glided over my tongue like silk. The flavor was enhanced with a sweetness I can’t put into words and the addition of wood to the taste was awesome. Well done Moat Mountain.

BelgianBeerGal (3224) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2008
My favourite of the 5 draught sampler we tried at the resturaunt. Aroma and flavour were dominated by coffee and unsweetened baking chocolate. Good looking stout with a small tan head.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 24, 2008
One of the surprises at the Great American Beerfest in Boston. I asked the guy who poured if this was brewed with coffee because of its great roasted coffee profile, but he said the brewery uses straight black patent malt for the flavor. Great coffee notes with a good amount of dark chocolate and burnt malts. Couldn’t tell what it looked like in the 2 oz. sampler, but it looked dark with white head. Flavor was rich and chocolatey with lots of burnt malt and coffee. Really good for a regular stout, and definitely the best regular that I had that day.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2007
cask version at the brewpub, apparently dry hopped. Black in color, small sudsy head from the handpump. Aroma of chocolate, roast, and a good amount of citrus hops. Taste is roasty, chocolate with some citrus, and mild piney bitterness. interesting cask beer.
