Pours dark with very little head and no lacing. The taste is of burnt coffee, smoke, toasted malt and light chocolate. A little thinner than most, but that’s great if you’re not having a sipping night. This brewery is ultra rare, and is 100% environmentally sound. No waste as their website says. Well worth the journey to get some. Note: You can only get it in 2l growlers or bigger.

Poured from the tap. Near black with beige head. Mix of milk and powdered chocolate with mild roast malt and coffee. Light texture, mildly bitter finish.

En fût à la brasserie.

D’abord, je suis étonné que cette bière reçoit des scores tellement bas. C’est une de les meilleurs stout que j’ai jamais bu. Peut-être j’ai eu de la chance et que j’ai tombé sur un lot spéciale.

L’arôme est comme un stout impériale. Plein du malt torréfié, avec du chocolat et café. L’arôme est tellement forte et complexe que je dirais que c’est même épais. En bouche il y a plein du corps, mais ce n’est pas lourde comme un stout impériale. D’abord il y a du chocolat et café, un peu sucré, puis un amertume léger qui l’équilibre juste assez pour que ça soit buvable.

Les saveurs sont très prononcés et complémentaire. Si j’ai un avis ça sera que une finition un peu plus amer l’équilibrera mieux la palate un peu sucré.

Roast and some dark chocolate. Pours black with good head. Some caramel. Light bitter finish with touch of tang in aftertaste. Tap at St augustines.

Draught @ Creekbread, Creekside. Clear ebony, no head. Very sweet, syrupy taste. Coffee with milk, yuck...

dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Draft at cascade room. Dark brown, slightly red in the light. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, lightly bitter. Tastes of a nice light roast coffee, milk chocolate and spice. Quite thin, but a nice beer overall.

Draft - A bit buttery with toasted malts. Deep mahogany with a beige brown head. Lots of burnt toast, chocolate and light bitterness. Not bad, but I have the feeling this is an off batch, I have had better.

Sampled at Great Canadian Beer Festival. Surprised I’ve never rated this as I seek it out every year at Beer Fest. Solid, reliable, all-around good stout. Lots of roast, dry, none too sweet but with an easy bitterness. Full-bodied, round and creamy.

kschep (1707) - DENMARK - JUN 10, 2014
Nose is fig, decent sweet tobacco, little smoke, feel is watery, taste is cola, sour earth, rotten fruit, weak cream
