brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 16, 2016
On tap @ Moat Mountain. Black in color with a khaki head. Typical roast, licorice, and a touch of ash. Light in body and carbonation. Some bitterness and earthiness. Pretty minimal sweetness here. Has a sort of acidic, carbonic finish to it. Not really a fan.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2005 On tap at the brewpub, March 2004:
Slight smoke emanating from an oily, roasted skin...Flat and headless, the sweet charcoal slowly burns...The morning after an uneventful campfire...2.6/5

On tap at the Blue Mermaid in Portsmouth, NH, December 2005:
In much better condition this time, or maybe it has simply improved? Very well-roasted malts coupled with coffee bean sweetness and grapey fruitiness. Quite strong carbonation, but not nitroed (woohoo!). A decent, well-brewed, straightforward stout. 3.4/5

Glouglouburp (6103) - 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.
