My Bottom Line:
Roastiness and mild chocolate are almost muted by the nitrogen, while smooth herbal and blackened bitterness develops with each sip.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A super creamy head of foam laces all the way down the pint glass over the blackness.
-Mouthfeel is bloated due to the nitrogen.
-The nose is purely roasty, linear and not substantial.
-This is very competent as a Guinness replacement (more flavorful).

On tap at their Montreal airport bar.

A deep dark stout with a thick creamy and lacing mocha head. In aroma, a rather peaty chocolate malt with herbal notes, not bad. In mouth, a nice fruity bitter chocolate malt with coffee notes, well done. On tap at Archibald YUL.

In short: A basic medium-roasted nitro stout. Acceptable generic beer
How: Nitro tap at brewpub, Ste-Foy location
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head
In long: Nose is basic typical roast bringing a light coffee sensation. Taste is like drinking burnt toasts but with a chewy mouthfeel and light notes of burnt raisin bread. Maybe a light coffee presence. Almost not hops to be found here but there is a dryness and light bitterness sensation because of the roast. Sadly, this was the best beer we had at this pub, my wife’s pilsner was pathetic, and I didn’t like the place either. I guess I’m just not a fan of Archibald, I am not hanging from their ceiling spinning on myself.

Au Mondial de la bière de Montréal 2012. Couleur noire, mousse brune. Arôme d’espresso. En bouche, café, un peu de chocolat. Finale avec un peu d’amertume. Bonne.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2012
On tap at restaurant. Black with a slight orange tint and a nice pale beige head. Smells of sweet chocolate. Tastes like sweet chocolate with a sharp coffee bitterness in the finish. Body is quite watery. A decent dry stout, would’ve been better with a dessert.

La Veuve noire présente une belle teinte opaque avec une belle mousse. La présentation est belle. Le malt grillé est bien dosé avec une légère amertume. Elle coule bien. Ma préférée chez Archibald. Elle aurait peut-être un petit fumet à prendre mais elle devait être dans sa prime jeunesse! Très bonne!

Quevillon (2462) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2010
Drank at the Fête Bière & Saveurs 2010 (tap), in Chambly Quebec, September 5. Black, medium head. Aroma of toasted barley, a little sweet. Very dry malted barley taste, slightly toasted, slightly bitter aftertaste and not so tasty. The official beer of Black Widows!

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2010 Stout dry légère - probablement pas de blé, bien houblonné, pétillante, goût un peu l’eau, discuté avec le brasseur Daniel au kiosque.
