UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 Drank on NYE 2017-18 after hiking to Mount High West (and failing to see the fireworks). Pours an opaque dark brown-black with a fluffy beige head. Smells of booze, medium cranberry and plum skin, moderate herbal menthol bitterness, spicy malt, Taste is chocolate, biscuity malt, menthol, light toffee and peanut and spice. Body is heavy, inky, bitter, boozy. Big and bitter. HKdIPA (876) - HONG KONG - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 Can from LCBO in Toronto at home in HK on NYE. Pitch black pour with thin, very light tan head. Aroma is sharp leather and wood earthiness with bitter coffee grounds. Taste is similarly sharp and bitter first, with deep roasted coffee and chocolate on a rich but not heavy palate. Straightforward and well-executed big bitter stout.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2017 The stout I have been searching for. A beer that keeps you satisfied after only one beer. Great to drink slow.

Tap(nitro)@Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Strong, bold and malty taste with licorice, roasted soft malts, dark chocolate, a hint of butter cookies. Balanced with wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste like pancakes on a camp fire. Strong, soft body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, superb quality, especially malts are implemented in a perfect way. Not so distinctive though. 7 5 8 4 17 oberschlesier (235) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - DEC 14, 2017
Aroma: nice oxidation notes - delicate soy sauce, milky notes, some dry fruits, sweet chocolate wafer.
Taste: some coffee, some chocolate, bit sour black malts aftertaste.
Nice head with lacing, oxidation is average in this style, beer's rather oily and smooth.
It's a bit like some very fine baltic porter, but has sour notes and some ashy aftertaste too. Nice classic, non-barrel aged, without additives RIS. beern (250) - Alabama, USA - DEC 2, 2017
Pours jet black with a tan head with an aroma of malt, coffee and caramel. Tastes of creamy, slick caramel and deep, rich, bitter coffee. It’s full bodied with lively carbonation. Sticky Roasty Caramel! sauvintipper (11) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2017
12oz canned 8/24/2017 10.5% ABV 65 IBU poured into pilsner glass pitch black with finger-width tan head which slowly fades as beer warms to room temperature. Chocolate malt, coconut, dark fruit with a little hops on the nose. A smooth and chewy mouthful right out the fridge! Not overly sweet or alcoholic. Flavors are well balanced with malts, chocolate, coconut, vanilla, raisins and even a little hops, but not bitter. My first Ten FIDY, best non-barrel-aged stout I have ever had and much better than expected, wow!
