12oz bottle pours a dark brown to almost black with mocha colored head. doesn’t last to long. in its own right this a good. but for me this is not so much a good stout. its does have some good aroma and the flavor is pretty decent. but stouts usually have a thicker body and somewhat a stronger flavor. that being said this has all the characteristics of a good stout but this one is not for me.

Pours black with medium head. Really nice chocolate notes with a bit of charred marshmallow. Bit of sweetness on the palate is cut by a bitter char. Richly creamy mouthfeel, low-medium carb.

"looks great, but it’s an odd one. a dry stout, but not in the irish style, so what you end up with is a somewhat hoppy, but still thin, west coast style stout. not bad at all, but not anything special. like shakespeare stout’s redheaded stepchild."

A: Pours a beautiful dark brown color with a considerable fluffy and aired beige head. Many lacings left S: Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee are quite intense. A bit sweet and biscuity. Refreshing perfume of hops in the end T: Follows the nose: very roasted taste. At same time refreshing with a sting of citrus hop in the end. Intense bitterness: I love it! ;) Absolutely easy to drink M: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Delicious bitterness O: Great Beer [ BA Review @ 9/10/2011 ]

@Malting Pot. Plutôt un "Dry Stout", selon moi. Copie d’un original mais je préfère l’original.
De visu: c’est une bière noire à la densité moyenne, assez parfumée développant des senteurs caractéristiques du style, la puissance en moins: effluves de malts grillés, de café moulu, de la levure, de la chicorée torréfiée, de grains d’orge rôtis avec une pointe de douceur et un houblon très fleuri. La bouche est très douce: je goûte le , malt caramélisé, la chicorée torréfié, une petite douceur fruitée, le tout assez sec. Ce n’est qu’en arrière goût que reviennent les arômes de café torréfié, d’orge grillé finissant sur une amertume assez tenace gentillement acre et surette à la fois. Les saveurs de cette bière offre une dégustation évolutive: se faisant plus douce avec des arômes exaltés de malt torréfié et grillé plus prégniants sur la longueur. Certainement un tout bon Stout dans la tradition. Mais il lui manque un peu plus de virilité sur les malts à mon goût!
