Great stout. Good balance of the coffee and chocolate, just wish it had a bit more kick.

December 30, 2013 - bottle from Binnys. Dark brown pour with some head. Aroma was chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and some vanilla. Taste was consistent with the aroma, but coffee dominated. The vanilla was very faint, medium bodied and relatively smooth.

500ml bottle into English pint. Pours a deep black with a thin, creamy head. Nose of chocolate and roasted coffee with a heavy vanilla flavour, touch of burnt coffee and dried fruit. Gorgeous beer.

Cest noir et cest surmont par une mousse majestueuse et crmeuse qui sternise avant de se rsorber et laisser son empreinte au verre. Il y a de beaux armes vanills, pics, de caf noir, de crme et de grains grills et/ou rtis. Les saveurs sont du ct de lamertume, de lacidit et de la torrfaction, o tout sagence pour former un parfait quilibre. Avec sa texture veloute, elle stend son savoir-faire pour nous laisser sur une belle impression de russite. Embouteille le 29 octobre 2013 (931-211213)

Stine (1775) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Vanilla, burnt sugar, some charred oak and a whispery violet liqueur note highlight an aroma whose depths are very deep.

Currants, bakers chocolate, tobacco leaf flavor. Rich and rustic, with a certain bittersweet fruity quality often found in good stouts that I only describe in my mind as purplish.

Round, plush palate; medium carbonation supports the meatiness; finishes semi-dry and chocolatey.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle dated 7/2/13 poured on 12/27/13. Shared with Dad. Says drink within 90 days but whatever. Dark brown to black pour with a light brown creamy half finger head. Aroma of huge roast and light vanilla, some smoke, semisweet chocolate. Flavor follows the smell with big roast and semisweet chocolate, light vanilla, and lingering bitter roast lingers. Medium carbonation and light medium body. This comes off as a porter rather than a stout and with that expectation is very nice. Recommended for lighter stout fare for sure.

juicyhops (48) - Grayslake, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle. Best by 2/5/14. Chocolate malt and dusted cocoa dominate a mild nose. Deep black with a great tan head that leaves a lace. Tastey stout with dark roasted malts dominating some chocolate flavors. Bitter. I get a touch of vanilla in the finish. Wanted a little more. Medium body.

LilBeerDoctor (3884) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, lactose, roasted malt, slight char, chocolate covered pretzels. Flavor of roasted malt, char/burnt malt, bitter chocolate, bitter hops. A tasty stout, perhaps a little lacking on the vanilla, but otherwise quite good. 8/4/8/4/14 (3.8/5)
