COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Servi à l’azote, notre stout bien noir est une bière de caractère, rôtie et houblonnée, mais qui grâce à l’utilisation d’avoine maltée, présente un côté soyeux et crémeux qui la rend drôlement agréable à boire!

July 19, 2015. On cask at the brewpub.
Black with a small very creamy off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, some ash notes, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is soft bitter, with some dark chocolate notes, light ash, some sweet malty caramel notes, finish is very light dry roasted bitterness balancing the sweet malty notes. Medium bodied, very creamy texture and soft carbonation.
Very nice, well balanced bitterness and creamy texture.

Encore une superbe bière de l’Albion. Un nez de malt rôti et grillé, du café sur de chocolat ou l’inverse. Une bouche ronde et crémeuse aux saveurs de café corsé fabriqué par le meilleur barrista de Joliette qui porte un kilt, c’est un stout écossais ! Mais pas pour le café mais pour le porridge, idiot !

Col indestructible sur liquide opaque. Poussée à l’azote? Évidemment. Parfums délicats mais francs de malts rôtis et torréfiés nuancés par des effluves de café, de caramel et de chocolat. Tout me semble bien sec par contre. En bouche, la magie noire des bons grains travaillés avec précision. Saveurs persistantes. Corps fantastiquement élaboré. Une note parfaite ici. En fin de gorgée, une longue et savoureuse impression de café riche. Très bon. Je dirais même magnifiquement buvable.

On tap @ L’Albion. Dark brown with a medium fully lasting creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma is mild with roasted and caramelized malt along chocolate notes. Taste is also mild but quite tasty with roasted malt, caramelized notes, leafy presence, chocolate and very light bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Silky mouthfeel. Very easy to drink. Good balance. I’m usually not a fan of Sweet Stout, but this one is pretty good and not too sweet. Well executed!
