procraste (28) - FRANCE - JAN 19, 2015
un joli noir profond , peu de nez. J’ai souvent du mal à détecter les notes maltés mais là, je ressens fortement le malt torréfié. Pas trop café en fait, plutôt biscuit sablé un peu trop cuit avec une note acidulée et une sympathique amertume délicate. Un peu de chocolat au lait en arrière plan Pas trop de gaz non plus mais ce qu’il faut . Entre la stout café et la chocolate stout, avec un petit truc en plus. Intéressant, il faudra que j’y revienne !

WABeerFiend (271) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler in late 2013. A: Motor oil with a small head. S: It smells good. Roastiness, coffee bitterness. T: Follows the nose. O: The slight bitterness that this one had balances out the sweetness. It was very easy to drink and very nice overall.

chinchill (2267) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2015
12 oz bottled served in a pint glass. Code on bottle MAY indicate best by date of 12 Nov. 2012 (from notes). This is a truly black and opaque beer; even held up to sunlight coming thru my window I can see no light, only the tiniest red-brown at the very edges. The head is a thick tan color, somewhat irregular in density, and leaves plenty of coating on the glass. Aroma is not strong and consists mainly of dark roasted malts. Also present, some floral alcohol effects and a hint of hops. T - Hops are obvious but secondary to the rich dark malt flavor. The excellent finish is long, featuring dark roasted malts, some hop spiciness, and hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel: excellent medium-full body with carbonation that is a bit high for the style (but not for this beer) and imparts some welcome crispness and tingle. O - Sierra Nevada Stout is another outstanding offering from this brewery. Particularly recommended to those seeking a significant, but not intrusive, hop component in their stouts.

Medium bodied, medium carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes slightly bitter with notes of coffee, roasted malts, anise, burnt almond and toffee. Very nice session stout, lots of character.
