Concealer (728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2013
Pours a dark brown with caramel head. Smells like toasted malt and smoke. Tastes Smokey upfront with a sweet chocolate finish.

Guerde (1161) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2014
(can from Sparky, thanks!) Pours a jet black color with a large tan head that retains well. Aroma of stale coffee grounds, roasted malt, cocoa, and light smoke. Flavor holds a little bit of tartness in the mid which creates a berry-like effect followed by sour and bitter coffee before rounding out to a fairly even roasted malt finish. Mouthfeel is fairly full and smooth. Carbonation is moderate. Overall a solid foreign stout.

DesertDevil (487) - Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2014
12-oz. can. Aroma of effervescent ginger, charred bark, well-browned biscuits, a semi-sweet brown malt, peanut butter, an earthy touch reminiscent of wet garden soil, some baker’s chocolate, and a very slight phenolic tone. Pours a clear medium black with an irregular tan head full of frogs’ eyes. The refined and balanced taste features a solid semi-sweet chocolate punch, a moderate roasty bitterness, a pleasant peanut butter nuttiness running through the background, a vague woody characteristic, and a cola and root-like bite. Well-carbed with a somewhat creamy texture and a sweet and dry finish. A fine example of the style.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2014
Sweet, light cocoa. Seems a strong, slightly alcoholic stout. Sweetish cocoa character. Fudgey. Touch of that going nowhere fruitiness of a lousy foreign stout. Misses the style mark by quite a bit, and isn’t all that interesting otherwise.

daknole (8856) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2014
This is hella good. Dark brown pour, creamy tan head. Rich malts, prunes, roast, cocoa notes. Creamy and very smooth.

gnoff (7664) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2014
12 fl oz can from from a store (Little Raven Vineyards) on Little Raven Street in Denver, on April 5, 2014.
Black color, light brown head. Sweet, roasted scent. Sweet, roasted taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Draft in a flight at Ground Control. Pours a deep brown, nearly opaque, with a small beige head that settles into a ring. Aroma of chocolate, soy, roasted and toasted malts, brown sugar, earth, and booze. The flavor is the same, but possibly a bit more earthy. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, smooth mouthfeel. Surprisingly booze-forward for 6.9%.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Can; poured black with a light brown head. Aroma was roasted with a lot of earth and fruit. Some sweetness and caramel. Flavor was a bit messy. Sickly sweet at times; a bit one note. Not great.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2014
12oz can pours with a mahogany colored body that has amber edges and supports a thin dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers up roasted malts, some earthy malts, a dash of chocolate and then faint dark fruity ester notes. The taste begins with a nice mix of sweet malts, earthy maltiness and some dark roasted malts. To midway a mild earthy wet tobacco and chocolate sensation join in and their addition fits smoothly into the overall flavor scheme. These notes proceed into the finish where a thin ribbon of sweet dark fruity esters murmurs to the surface. This all comes together very well and a good example of why I enjoy this style.

Enjoyable stout out if a can. Comparable to TenFidy but not nearly as good.
