COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Stir Stick Stout is robust with ruby highlights and a generous addition of fresh ground, locally roasted Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee. The beans lend a distinct chocolate aroma that blends well with the roasted barley and malty sweetness. A woody bitterness from the Fuggles hop variety rounds out this ale and makes it the perfect match for barbequed buffalo burgers or sweet desserts like chocolate lava cake. Serve in a glass at 8 degrees celcius. Unpasturised.

Im pretty far from being a connoisseur of stouts and porters but Ive pretty much fallen in love with them over the last little while. Anywho, Half Pints is a local brewery so I might be a bit biased but honestly, Im just loving this. Ive had it plenty of times in the past and always thought it was ok but enjoying this beer at cellar temperature is kinda orgasmic. As to be expected, dark chocolate and coffee notes appear in both aroma and taste. Texture is surprisingly light and thin for a stout. I actually wish it had a bit more of a heavier feel to it. But then again, it probably makes it that much more easier to drink! Bottom line, not an overly complicated stout by an means, but its really enjoyable and perfect for those cooler fall evenings.

Bouteille sans date. Robe noire opaque surmont dun beau col de mousse couleur caf au lait moyennement onctueux et trs persistant. Armes de malt frais grill et caf aux noisettes, cacao et cendre. Pas dune grande complexit au nez mais bien quilibr. En bouche, cest sensiblement la mme chose: beaucoup de caf de moyenne torrfaction, malt grill. Sajoutent de la cendre, poudre de cacao, pelures de noix. Finale plutt amres en gnral o le caf est encore dominant mais en dose apprciable. Texture assez onctueuse en entre mais qui devient subitement un peu aqueuse. Corps moyen. Trs bon stout somme toute.

Another great selection from cards04. Pours dark with a light brown head. Medium body with nice coffee and chocolate tones. Good job at controlling bitterness. Finish is smooth and roasty.

Patrickctenchi (6203) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle: Black...with a small tan head. Scent is coffee, dark chocolate, a little cola. Mild ashy bittering. A very nice stout....simple, but right on the mark.

ENG: 341ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg. Poured into the tulip, gives opaque black color with red highlights and a medium brown head with a bit of lacing. Aromas of coffee. Mostly coffee taste with hints of ash, roasted malts, chocolate, herbs. I think its a bit too watery. Aftertaste is really mild, only a bit bitter. Medium carbonation and light to medium body. Overall quite flat palate, taste, watery body. Nothing special here.

PL: Butelka 341ml zakupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg. Przelana do kieliszka, barwa smolista z lekkimi czerwonymi przebłyskami, średnią brązową pianą, nieco lejsingu. Aromaty kawowe. W smaku rwnież głwnie kawa z nutami popiołu, palonych słodw, czekolady i ził. Wydaje mi się, że jest nieco wodniste. W posmaku łagodne, ledwo wyczuwalna goryczka. Średnie nasycenie, lekkie do średniego odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując dosyć jednolite w smaku, aromacie, wodniste. Bez szału.

Thanks to Ryan for this. Pours black with a big frothy brown head. Aroma is light coffee, roasted malts and a touch of nut. Taste is much the same, well made basic stout.

b3shine (8253) - Indiana, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle to half-pint glass (thanks cards04). Looks good; a slightly translucent dull dark cola with foamy beige head. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and a bit of roast. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2014
[ Bottle ][ 1oz ][ Tasting ][ ][ Snifter ][ 11.09.14 ]
Murky sepia, thin cream collar. Lightly earthy coffee, faint chocolate, muted but without large error. Flavor lightly sweeter, chocolate early with heavy toast accents mid, nutty with bark and earth throughout but largely in finish, sticky full body accenting softness.
