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!

Quevillon (2475) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2011
Drank on tap (20 oz) at the brewpub, on July 24, 2011. Black, medium beige head. Aroma of smoked meat and bacon, oat malt notes. Good oat malt taste slightly smoky, with notes of berries, fruity sour aftertaste, not very bitter. It’s quite decadent this beer!

On tap at Albion. The color is black with a dark beige head and nice lace. The aroma is of malt, oats and caramel. The taste is of roasted malt,chocolat and caramel with a touch of hops. THis stout leaves a mix of bitterness and sweetness in your mouth,very pleasant.

Overall : Very drinkable and tasty. Nice dark chocolate. Great hops. I enjoyed this one a lot. Really digged the mouthfeel as well as the hop profile. These guy know how to brew light but tasty beers. Wow.

JulienHuxley (3013) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Nice dark pour, almost black with reddish tints and a lot of creamy white nitro foam. Aroma is quite low key, with hints of grain, toast, fresh hops and coffee. Taste is a well built and balanced mix of burnt toast, coffee and chocolate. Palate is really creamy and satisfying.

A deep dark stout with a thick receeding dark brown head, nitro pushed. In aroma, a light caramel chocolatem butterscotch. In mouth, a lightly silky bitter chocolatem with light lactic points, nitro silk, not bad. On tap at brewpub, Dec. 27 2010.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013 My Bottom Line:
This graceful Oatmeal Stout provides plenty of chocolate-laden cereal flavors which effortlessly segue into a satisfying finish of roasted malt and leafy hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Nitrogen-induced foam icing decorates the pure blackness.
-Although regular patrons might not prefer this, I get the impression this recipe would express better with light carbonation, a bit like that of their wonderful Bitter.
-Raisin-y malt complexities appear once in a while.
-The mouthfeel is very smooth and wealthy, and the nitro doesn’t make the brew feel bloated. It simply increases drinkability in this case, while not impeding on malt flavors.
-The cask version is absolutely lovely; brimming with leafy hop brightness, but also with chewy roasted cereals. Absolutely flawless AND very flavorful.

On tap (and on cask!) at the brewpub.
