Quevillon (2550) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - JUN 9, 2013
Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewpub on June 9, 2013. Black, medium head. Aroma of chocolate barley, licorice notes. Cocoa and licorice barley taste, with notes of fruit, taste sweet coffee. Double pleasure!

Minderbinder (2028) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
On tap at l’Albion. Pours pitch black with medium beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malt. Taste is of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, sugar, some bitterness. Palate: Awesome creamy texture (nitro). Full bodied. Overall: Very nicely balanced stout. Never cloying, quite enjoyable.

On tap @ L’Albion. Dark brown with a medium fully lasting creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma is a super mix of roasted and caramelized malt along light fruitiness and honeyed notes. Taste is also of roasted and caramelized malt with light fruitiness, just the right amount of sweetness (no residual sugars), raisins notes and light bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Creamy and fluffy mouthfeel, but the nitro serving doesn’t hide the malts. Mild roasty finish. Superb balance and great mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden. Really tasty.

Bue un pinte, en cask, au pub. Couleur foncée, assez opaque. Un goût de chocolat et de café grillé, avec des légères notes fruitées.

TaktikMTL (6031) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2013
En fût. Verre de 12 oz dégustéee directement à la brasserie lors du party 2e anniversaire. Arôme: Légère odeur de café et de chocolat. Apparence: La couleur est noire opaque. Présence d’un mince col beige mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de chocolat et de café torréfié. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement crémeuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement chocolaté. (Rating #4661)

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
My Bottom Line:
This generously-nitroed strong Stout outlines light chocolate, roast and raisins before leafy hops and torrefied malts contribute balancing bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Creamy foam icing tops the blackness.
-Even though the flavor profile is cohesive throughout, I’d prefer a version in which the nitro is toned down to truly appreciate malts’ flavors.
-Alcohol warmth adds a touch of depth to every sip. Even though it looks like one, this is far from a Guinness knock-off.
-The mouthfeel is bloated but extremely smooth. This makes for a dangerous pint at 7.5% abv.

On tap at the brewpub.
