Gerbeer (3896) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with moderate tan head. Aromas of slightly smokey roasted malts and dark milk chocolate. Flavors of dry roasted malts, ash, and nutty dark chocolate. Initial watery sensation with dry roasty finish. Nothing really special these days but quite good for the ABV and the original style

BlackHaddock (7583) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2017
500ml bottle: BBE Mar 2018. Obtained from Beers of Europe and shared between three during a random tasting session at my house on 15th Sep 2017. A very pleasant Stout in all aspects, looked, smelled and tasted good. Deep and darkest black body, tanned head. Chocolate and coffee notes abound in both the aroma and taste: rich, smooth and slick body wise. An ideal and sensible last beer of the evening being only 4% ABV.

3.2
Jabic (664) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Ar: Cocoa, dried cherry and dried strawberry. Ap: Black and opaque; medium-large mocha head with moderate retention, leaving a thin but solid cap of foam. T: Toffee, caramel, and chocolate; very little sweetness; roast and dried pear; bitterness is medium, quite firm, and slightly herbal in taste; coffee and char on the finish. P: Light body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: A middle-of-the-road stout; bold roasted flavor with some esters and hops showing through; fairly light in body, but still quite flavorful.

3.5
cmacklin (1275) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black with a medium, creamy, long lasting, brown head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and caramel. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel, licorice, bitter coffee and a hint of smoke with a dry, tangy hop finish. Light to medium body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice stout for such a low ABV.

Bottle. Pitch Black in colour. Very Malty; espresso coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, liquorice, hint of smoke. Hoppy; spicy and rather earthy hops. Smooth. Sweetish roast malty throughout. Mildly bitter sour hoppy finish. Easy drinking. Sessionable. Liked this. Nice stout! (2009-05)

4.1
hershiser2 (3591) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2016
$5.49 500 ml bottle from Market Steer Wine Shop, Downtown. Pours BLACK with a giant, soft brown head. Luscious aroma of smoked peat, chocolates, coffee, earth, wood - this is amazing. Flavor is quote similar, yet not as strong. Smoked peat, light chocolate, coffee grounds. Slightly earthy, slightly woody. It doesn’t check in with that higher alcohol stout, but damn - if it did this would be a masterpiece.
