Jabic (506) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Ar: Acedic sourness, some dark caramel. Ap: Deep brown, lots of chunky yeast, with an enormous and rocky light tan head with great retention. T: Acedic sourness up front, with a cherry and leather quality - some cola and plum - the sourness and acidity really dominate. P: Medium body with exceptionally high carbonation - finish is very dry. O: It is difficult to find the stout in this beer as the sourness has almost completely taken over.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Pours an opaque brown with a small brown head. Sweet aroma. Roasted flavor with hints of dark fruits and coffee. Nice bitter end. Interesting and wonderful stout.

Aroma is more like Saison, the taste seems to be bit on the plane side and bit dry.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Bottle. Fizzy dark beer, no head. Lots of black patent malt, but dry. Alcohol is obvious and the yeast notes are evident yet subtle.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - NOV 28, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2008 Garrafa, em Bruges (BEL), em novembro de 2007. Colorao preta, com creme marrom gigantesco, denso e persistente. Show!!! Notas de caf e malte torrado. Amarga, sem tanta personalidade. Stout diferente. Sabor mais aberto, talvez azedo. Seca. No gostei da proposta. Muito azeda/cida. No to encorpada como as demais Stout. Desvirtuou um pouco do caminho. Parece mais uma brown ale.

jdjuice (500) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - AUG 2, 2008
I made the mistake of not giving this enough time to cool down. Opened this up and it immediately gushed out of the bottle and all over the kitchen. Very highly carbonated. Flavors were very dark and musty. Quite dry and complex, kind of similar to flavor notes found in scotch. I want to try again with a well refrigerated bottle.

Neorej80 (498) - - JAN 31, 2015
Chocolate and rasin aroma. Pff white foamy head. Pretty sour yeast flavour. Prumes, dadels, ristretto. Not enough coffee and chocolade for me, not Thatcher good for a stout

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Huge tan head atop dark brown body w/ maroon tint. Fairly opaque, leaves a nice lacing. Nose of rich malts, chocolate, sweet dark fruits, candi sugar, hints of bananas and bubble gum. On the tongue, a huge sweet maltiness with vinous notes, candi sugar, slightly spicy yeast, chocolate, finishes w/ a nice roastiness. Nice full mouthfeel, slightly drying. This is such a great beer.

Echon (496) - rhus, DENMARK - APR 12, 2017
Black. Spicy and yeasty, with a strong and pungent flavour. Lightly sweet taste with tart notes, that ends with a dry, boozy, lightly bitter and ashy finish. Medium body, and foamy carbonation. Overall, a somewhat decent strong ale. The pungent, yeasty flavour and rather dry taste are at odds with the roasted malt.
