Just had this at the Cambridge House brewing release party in Torrington, CT.

They had the IPA, Kolsch, 3 Steve Stout, and cask-Pilsener available but this one had them all beat. Nose is full of nuttiness and toasted malts, perfect mouthfeel and body to it. A nice chewy, chocaolately type of taste to it. Goes down wicked smooth and you want to beg for more. Their IPA wasn't it's usual self today, so as of now this if the best beer going on at the CBH Torrington location.

Small, beige head but leaves a combination of spots and ring lace. Near black color. No light passes through.

Dark chocolate cake and black coffee smell. Mild alcohol in the background.

Quite bland initially. The baker's chocolate flavor only shows up in the swallow. Compounding this effect is the the very thin body and elevated carbonation. The aftertaste is quite good and lingers a decent amount of time. The flavor is dry with a bit of burnt toast. Yep, burnt toast and baker's chocolate pretty much sums this beer up.

German-style refillable growler filled at the brewpub.

First pint glass pours with a 1/2" uneven dark brown head, which lasted reasonably well, over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Lacing was average, with a light coffee aroma. Taste is coffee upfront, mellowed with some sweetness, and closes with a slight hops bite. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth over the tongue, making for very nice drinkability. This presentation (few days old growler) has let a bit of the carbonation free, making it even smoother and more drinkable, in my mind. Quite enjoyable stout.

Draught @ Brewpub: Now that this is oficially on tap I can rate it. It was just as good as a week ago when I had a glass "under the table". This one pours a very dark brown, which was pretty much opaque. It had a tan head that left some lacing down the glass. The aroma was somewhat roasty, with some hints of coffee. There were also some indeterminite hops burried in there. The taste was quite good. It wasnÂ’t too heavy of a stout, but had a very nice balance and smooth taste. No real sweetness, with a touch of bitterness. The roastiness comes through well, as well as a touch of the coffee.


Re-rate: They have cut back just a bit on the roasted malts. The beer has a much better balance!!

Perfect beer for St. Patrick's Day!

A - Back pour with an active brown foam that settled fast. Looks very thin moving around the glass.

S - Dry malt and a bit of lactose in the aroma. Some notes of cocoa powder.

T - Taste is on point! Some roasted malt flavor, a bit of sweetness, and finishes with a dry bite.

M - Great sessional stout that has a dry finish and no carbonation. Easy to pair this with any pub fare.

O - Have this with your corned beef anytime during the year. I found this to be a great representation of the style, and one I'd happily go back to.

I am pouring this from a growler filled the other day. Pouring into a pint glass the brew pours dark brown with a creamy tan head that foams up 2-3 cm even with a gentle pour. The head fades to a sturdy surface layer.
Aroma is roasted malt and coffee with some brown sugar mixed in and a bit of chocolate.
First sip reveals a creamy soft textured beer with fine rolling carbonation. Flavor starts with sweet brown sugar and chocolate and rolls to some roasted malt and coffee notes as well. The beer is very smooth from start to finish with no hint of ABV anywhere.
Quite a nice treat when you visit Granby!

From the older bottle, it pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a small head. Smells like a stout - roast malt and chocolate. Taste follows the nose - roasted malt and some dark chocolate. Yum!

Served on-tap at the Cambridge House Brewpub in Torrington, Conn.

A: Poured a total black with brown tinted highlights under thick, two-finger head of dense brown foam.

S: Smells a little like a deep roast coffee, with burnt cereal grains and some campfire smoke.

T: Taste is smooth and sweet at first, with a little milk chocolate and grainy flavor, followed by a deep roasted bitterness I can taste now, even 40 minutes later. Very smooth and deep roasted malt flavor with some light herbal hops for balance.

M: Mouthfeel is full bodied but not tough to geth through at all. Flavors balance the feel out well also.

D: A very sessionable American stout. Enough flavor and mouthfeel to keep it interesting, although good luck to those who go lighter after this brew.

Had this one in a sampler during a visit for a birthday lunch.

This was a very dark brown, clear beer, nearly opaque, with a thin film of head that lasted throughout the glass. There was a lot of lacing.

The aroma was of very strong roasted malts... quite good.

Flavor was of roasted malts with a big slug of coffee flavor. PDG (pretty damn good).

Mouthfeel was smooth, silky, and shewy... really really good.

Drinkability was good. With so many other beers available, it was just too difficult to choose what to follow it with.

Served in a nonic, this oatmeal stout appeared pitch black-coal in color, underneath a creamy,settled off-white head. Ringed lacing throughout the pint with remarkable strength.

Aromas of coffee, rolled oats, milk and dark chocolates. Mellow whaft of roasted malts.

The flavors begin with a mellow roasted malt profile giving off milk chocolate, toffee, and vanilla notes. Roasted oats and a lingering coffee taste last well into a mild, near creamy bitterness. The aftertaste is marked by vanilla, roasted oats, milk chocolate, and light oak.

Full in body; the roasted malt quality is barely grainy on the palate as I'd expect. Smooth and creamy.

A well crafted Oatmeal Stout. The flavors are dead-on for the style and well balanced.

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Victory Donnybrook Stout nonick

a; Opaque black with a hint of clear ruby highlight at the bottom when seen through light. Inch and a half thick tan head receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Chocolate and coffee

t; Black coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Slightly bitter to dry finish smooths out later.

m: Light to medium, low to medium carbonation tingle.

o; An ok stout, although a bit light in the mouthfeel dept. lingering bitterness detracts somewhat at first, but it smooths out and is easy drinking enough otherwise.

4.7% this year. Poured into a pint glass. Started the big tasting on Saturday 10/24/09 with this one.

A - Small tan head, black thick body.

S - Coffee, toasted grains, chocolate.

T - This one has a bite. Malt bitterness notes of expresso, burnt oatmeal, and a minor hop presence.

M - Smokey, hearty, low carbonation.

D - Very sessionable stout. Love this traditional style. Full bodied stout without the big abv.
