Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAR 29, 2014
Cask at NERAX. Pours a black brown with no head. Roasty aroma of coffee and burnt toast. Flavour is similarly roasty, with some nice dry cocoa flavours too. A little thin on the body.

Good looking, black with thin beige head. Smokey malt aroma. Weak feel, lack lustre in mouth and on tongue. Weak vanilla, lacking taste and substance - not rated.

RuneStumo (2474) - Haugesund, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2015
04.08.2015. 0,5l Bottle. Black colour with off.white head. Aroma of dark malts. Ligth roasted, dry bitter chocolate and coffe. Very soft with w toffee ending. This beer has exactly the same mouthfeel as milk. Soft with a coffee ending. Watery body, and for me its a little thin. Very soft carbonation. Its not often I think I dont like a beer, but this one is just that one.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2015
2nd July 2015: second beer of a random tasting session with me and no one else. 500ml bottle conditioned: BBD end of July 2015, but I think the brewery were being a little over ambitious with the length of time it would stay ’good’. Poured vigorously into an Abbot Ale glass tankard the beer steadfastly refused to produce a head of any sort, not even a wisp or collar: not a good start. The body is Jet Black by the way. Most likely over chilled by me but as it warmed the beer still had very little aroma or taste apart from a malty base and an ’old musty-out of date’ sort of feel. Lacklustre and boring: a pity because I have liked most of Monty’s brews that I’ve encountered, bottled or cask.

yngwie (15762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. It pours a hazy dark, dark brown body and a finger-thick light beige head. The aroma has a good dash of burnt down bonfire, with prunes, licorice and some coffee. Bonfire in the flavor too, with prunes, dark chocolate and some coffee in the back. Medium body, quite dry, but with some sweetness. Lasting rosted and charcoal-ish finish. Quite decent, but not my preferred kind of stout, too charcoal-ish. 140808
