From Bierkraft. In Teku glass. Playing Avernum 2. Good coffee aroma, but in mouth a strong carbonation and light acidness keeps it from being something notable

A great, jet-black color presented in an interesting, long-necked bottle. However, I could tell it's a bit thin just by pouring it which probably leads to the thin and immediately disappearing head. I don't get much on the nose other than standard malty notes. Immediately hit by roasted coffee beans, ash, and a small amount of cacao. Unfortunately missing the hidden complexities of vanilla, chocolate, cream, or other dimensions that I love in other stouts. Just as it looks, it has a thin mouth feel. It's certainly easy to drink for a stout because it's so light but I prefer my stouts heavier. Overall, it's just an OK version of a dry stout.

Black with 3 fingers of deep beige, grey tinged head.

Smells of chocolate, a slight cigarette smokiness, and chocolate milk.

The taste is very dry of coco dust, cigarette smoke, and ends with a fair amount of rust.

Medium body, dry and powdery but billowing like cloud carbonation.

Got this at a gas station in Quebec north of Montreal, drinking tonight in Kingston, ON. Decent brew, though not loving the rust, but the mouth feel is really good.

Opaque black with a nice head definition. The 1 finger head is light brown and creamy, lasting around 10-15 minutes, but making no legs. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, smoked salmon and bacon, faint molasses, herbal spices. Creamy light body with a strong intensity. Lacks a little freshness being dry and bitter, with a present sugary feel. Ends with an earthy smoked bacon aftertaste. A mix between a dry stout and a rauchbier. Overall decent craft: the flavors are nice but the feel is a little off, can be a little harsh, too oily and too thin.
