Pour is a dark brown with an average, creamy, tan head which is mostly lasting and leaves a couple lace rings. Nose is pleasant with moderately roasted milk chocolate notes dominating, light roasted grains, mild earthy coffee roast, and faint vanilla. Flavor is dryer than expected with lots of roasted grains, moderately roasted coffee with matching acidity, faint roasted hazelnuts, and hints at vanilla and cocoa. Palate is fair with a light to medium body, lively carbonation, and dry/creamy/watery texture. Finishes abruptly with cofee notes, acidity, and dry roasted grains. A solid dry stout with all the right flavors present but nothing too special. A nice balance of roasted notes bringing only enough bitterness. Nice example of the style.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Picked up a single 22-oz bomber at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul. Pours a near opaque dark brown brew with a thin beige head that slowly dissipates an off-white ring. Aroma of toasted dark malt, some coffee and chocolate, a hint of flowery hops and light vanilla. Taste is medium bodied, toasted dark malt flavors with some chocolate dry herbs, and some flowery hops. Finish is semi-dry with a light toasted dark malt and vanilla aftertaste that slowly disappears.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2009
I don’t necessarily expect much from a Moylans which is not an IPA, so the aroma was a pleasant surprise. It just smells very good, perfectly integrated malt-focused ale. A tan, small, but lacy head covers the ebony pour. Tight, tasty, roasty mouth presence which avoids the frequent vegetal undertones stouts can have. No abusive sweetness, this one honours its name: grainy, well-roasted and very clean, chocolatey more than fruity. Light-medium bodied, comfortable carbonation is soft. All in all a demonstration of Moylans versatility.

ryanknock (150) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 15, 2009
A very well balanced dry stout. Very roasty up front, chewy, coffee highlights with a slightly hoppy and bitter finish. Notes of chocolate, molasses, toast and coffee throughout, a delicious, sessionable stout. Great for a winter day at the local pub.

DuffMan (7022) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2009
Dark chestnut brown. Aroma of coffee, bitter chocolate, and rich burnt malt. Coffee, bitter chocolate, ashy and vegetal notes all play over the palate. Finish is very dry and moderately bitter. Delicious!

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Dark brown pour with a small light brown head. Minimal lace. Fresh roast coffee on the nose. Creamy mouth-feel. Nuts, coffee, chocolate, and roast. Slightly dry and astringent

emacgee (4136) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Pours a dark black that allows some light with a thin dark tan head. The nose is roasty, chocolate and coffee roast, malty, doesn’t show the bitterness. The flavor is very stout, dark malt and roast, chocolate and coffee bitterness, waxy hops and bitter grains. Nice dry and roasty palate.

bomber. hmm. This is a pretty black bere, actually. A nice tan head forms on top along with quick and sotty lacing. The aroma is milky and nutty. I’d almost swear there was lactose involved. Dark chocolate, earth, walnuts, and prunes are here. The palate is light, but creamy enough. Man, there is so much nutty character and the finish is pleasantly dry, but not overly so. Dark, Rich chocolate is here, little hints at soy sauce, roasty coffee. This is a great, great low abv stout. this is an extra sessionable beer that sacrifices no character or complexity. I give it two thumbs up.

nearbeer (3840) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2008
650 ml. Opaque with a lasting quarter inch of foam and some spotty lace. Aroma is coffee, nearly-burnt grain, and char. Flavor is mocha coffee, ashes, light sour cream and berry. Chicory and char on the finish. Medium-heavy body is watery, very lightly carbonated, and acidic-roast tingly.
