vadie (1231) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
En fût à l’aéroport de Montréal. Noir avec une petite robe marron dense. Beaucoup de malt torréfié dans l’arôme et en bouche, avec une finale amer bien équilibré. Carbonation bas. Assez bonne mais un peu timide pour le style.

On tap at the airport restaurant. Almost completely opaque black pour with creamy light tan head (nitro). Aroma is soft, light roasty notes, mild burnt toast. Taste is lightly sweet, roasty, light molasses. Palate is med-light bodied with good carbonation.

Whatup14 (1616) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2015
En fût à l’aéroport. Couleur brune foncée presque opaque, mousse moka crémeuse persistante laissant une belle dentelle. Arôme de café, malt torréfié, soupçon de chocolat noir. Goût de malt torréfié, café. Carbonatation très faible, corps moyen-faible, crémeuse.

Draught at Archibald - Aéroport de Montréal
Black color with compact beige head. The weak but smooth body marries well the delicate bready roastiness.
As often happens to simple and imprecise breweries, the dark beer is the most pleasant.

On tap @ Archibald (Montreal Airport). Dark almond/brown color with a small beige/brown head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of roasted notes an chocolate... not super complex, but not unpleasant. Taste is also of roasted malt, light chocolate, hints of acidity and light herbal presence. Light body, a tad watery which is amplified by the nitrogen treatment I think. Medium carbonation. Decent Dry Stout. If it was not that thin, it would be quite good.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
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.

Lubiere (12883) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
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.

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.
