A stout made with roasted barley, tonic and invigorating, with a well-conditioned, slight but distinctive bitterness. Noire de Stack is perfect for beer-tasting and goes very well with smoked fish, oysters and delicatessen meats.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants. Glossy, pitch black beer with a stable beige foam lacing with each sip. Odd aroma for a a black beer; perfumed citrus (Terry’s chocolate orange...coriander/and/or orange peel) sprinkled over the more expected drinking chocolate, Neopolitan ice cream, bacon, cooked veg nuttiness (olfactory senses readjusting after a Founders Porter). There isn’t much roast to the flavour, but what there is is good; chocolate, mellow tobacco tones, discreet spicing (?), again suggesting my favourite, foil-wrapped, spherical item of English confectionery. Maybe it’s just me. Pistachio/ vicarious cigar aftertaste, inhaled from the adjacent table. Very French. And strong evidence that good beer exists (and is even made) in France.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2011
A dark brown, almost black colored beer, with a beige head. The aroma of smoked malts with dark fruits like cherries. The taste of chocolate with dark fruits, smoked malt with notes of spices. The aftertaste is moving from sweet to bitter.

Leighton (14334) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a huge, off white and cloudy head. Dark malts, light chocolate and caramel in the nose. Fairly sweet with cocoa and candy, along with some chalky, tobacco bitterness. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Seriously dry to finish, with some burnt wood and charred malts, which are short-lived with touches of sugary sweetness. Decent beer overall.

Bottle from La Bon Marche, Paris. Roasty, milky, sweet aroma with chocolate, some dark fruit. Black, not opaque quite, medium tan head. Roasty flavor, sweet, with chocolate, wood, burnt malts, cream. Seems to be a slightly sweet, dry-finishing porter. Decent, light, clean. Nice roasted malt finish.

DeanF (1891) - Northwest Territories, CANADA - SEP 4, 2010
Nice black colour, very black, lots of head. Very nice! Aroma of barley, swampwater, alcohol, unsweetened chocolate. Taste is lots of burnt barley, coffee. Overroasted in my opinion but drinkable.
