Poured from tap at brewpub a black with medium small tan head. Aroma is light roast coffee and chocolate. Flavor has a bit of roast grain, coffee, chocolate and a creamy milkiness. The palate has a light smooth bitterness but finishes a touch watery. I thought this beer was good not great.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours dark brown / black with a moderate tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, some dark fruits, and hint of chocolate. Flavor is a robust malty stout, with a lot of roast and a bit of sweetness. A little bit of bitterness, and a creamy, full mouthfeel; not particularly dry imo. Quite good, though.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Very dark brownish black with a hint of red at the edges. Creamy nitro head. Strong roasty aroma. Strong roasted malt, coffee grounds and light hops flavors. Extremely thin feel. Fairly wet finish. Nice flavor, but just too thin.

On tap at the brewery. Jet black with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee with roasted malts. Flavor is the same. Very creamy mouthfeel. Overall not a very complex stout but still good.

Enjoyed this beer sitting in the actual Thirsty Bear Brewery on my trip to San Francisco. Excellent, roasty taste and overall experience. This beer pretty much confirmed for me that stout is my favorite style.

Wauw, ruikt naar een chocolade reep. In San Francisco in de brouwerij vd tap. Ziet er ook uit als mooie stout. Donker, met vol schuim van ongeveer een pink. Smaakt als vloeibare chocola, lekker :)

On tap at brewpub, cask conditioned and dry hopped, according to the sign on the cask. Really enjoyed this one as the last of 3 at the brewpub. I don’t really love nitrogen stouts, so I was happy it was on cask and the dry hopping gave it an interestingly hoppy taste for a stout. Very nice.

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2008
Draught sampler at the brewpub. Black body, with a small tan head. Strongly roasted aroma, with chocolate notes. The flavour is rich and deep, with layers of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and smoke. Smooth and creamy on the palate. A very good stout.
