nimbleprop (6355) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Looks can be deceiving. I had this recently hand pulled and it looked promising, Very dark color, little carbonation, white creamy head. The flavor was WAY too smokey which covered an otherwise weak malt and hop flavor. Nothing here but texture and look. Disappointing to say the least.

Quevillon (2729) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Bu au pub en 2005. Probablement la meilleur des trois que j’ai bu là durant mes vacances. Très bon goût de malt roti et de cacao 70%.

Sammy (10019) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2005
In a word, dry, bitter and black. Too carbonated, a bit mediocre for style. A Somewhat burnt and roasted, nutty, thinish mouthfeel. Certainly dry.Some coffee, all not holding greatly together. But quaffable and better than most of the offerings here.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Pours dark brown with a tan ring. Smells of chocolate, toffee, coffee. Tastes of coffee, nutty, milk chocolate and a hint of figs. Finish is flat but sweet.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Had both on cask and keg. Better version number-rated. Massively better on cask--vanilla notes in nose, cream, coffee. Middle coffee with some oily fish notes (it works well), finish oily hops and coffee swallow, roasted aftertaste. On keg was thin and lifeless.

Eructoblaster (3479) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2005
On tap at the pub. Opaque black body topped with a thin but lasting beige creamy head. Nice coffeeish aroma with chocolate and roasty notes. Pretty well balanced taste that could be more complex. Good bitter/roasty finish with average lenght. Very drinkable stout.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 3, 2004
On tap at the brewery: Black with a small tan head. Chocolate aroma, smooth watery mouthfeel. Starts and ends sweet. Fairly weak for a stout, but not bad.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2004
3oz sample at the brewery. Opaque with a large tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate...lots of carbonation (?!) Strong chocolate flavor in the middle, mellowing to a slightly bitter finish. Too thin for a stout.
