Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Deepest brown pour, fading beige head. Roast and spice nose with soft rummy, heady undercurrents. Chocolate, carub, earthy, green leafiness and licorice feature in this smooth and polite strong beer, not exagerating the hops nor the roast, nor the sweetness. An all-rounder, drier than average, a sensation perhaps amplified by the assertive carbonation. Less creamy than other Beau’s offerings and even though it’s above average in the roast department, it’s not as up there as some of their other dark brews. In the end, a fairly balanced and predictable example that does not strike a sensible chord of mine and since it sits in a category I’m not particularly fond of, it’s not something I will seek out again.

Pours jet black with a very thin mocha head. No lacing left behind on my clean glass. Aromas are of chocolate, burnt malts, raisins, molasses and rum. Tastes are identical. Nice alcohol burn in the back of the throat. Some are observing that this is a misleading beer and not really representative of an Imperial Stout. I don’t judge by category. For me this is as much a Dubbel as a stout, with raisins, rum, chocolate nibs and malts all coalescing into a wonderfully unique beer. Hotly boozy, but I will live with that. Would buy this again without hesitation.

sudomorph (966) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep brown/caramel with a thin, tan head. Aroma has nice notes of candy sugar, dark fruits, and hints of roast. Taste is balanced. Dark fruits, roast, and a slight tartneess. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a semi-dry finish. Overall a tasty, roasty, brew.

Thick tan head, with a dark brown body. Aroma of malted oats and chocolate. Taste matches aroma with hints of oak, and blacberry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vadie (1107) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Noir sombre avec très peu de mousse. L’arôme du chocolat et malt torréfié. Le goût est du chocolat et malt torréfié, avec une finition amer pour une bière belge, mais pas trop amer pour un stout impériale. Carbonization très haute. Ça détourne de le goût de la bière. C’est bizarrement carboné pour une tel bière.

Scent and flavour of chocolate and coffee. Heavy body with low carbonation, though slightly syrupy. Good flavours but not too special.

bunget (711) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
600ml bottle. Dark brown-reddish body, medium chocolate head with excellent retention, but no lacing. Oily. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla beans, blackberries, woodsy, basement. A little faint for an imperial stout. Taste of sweet licorice, chocolate, herbs, a bit of unpleasant burned toast, booze, yeast. Well chilled but that didn’t help.

lesifflebiere (1521) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Texture mi-épaisse, nez en chocolat, en boisé et en café dans cette bière à la mousse couleur beurre d’érable ; un peu deo vanille en arrière-plan. La bouche est semble-t-il un peu fumée, avec des notes de grains rôtis en trame de fond, et des houblons bien présents en finale. Relativement complexe, pas très riche mais fort agréable, ce stout belge n’est pas exceptionnel, mais comme la plupart des produits de cette brasserie, il est bien au-dessus de la moyenne.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3558) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. A dark black pour with a big tan head. Plums, raisins, rich dark stone fruit, bread pudding luscious aroma. Med-light bodied with a spritzy mouthfeel, maybe too light. The flavor is wonderful rich chocolate, cocoa, dark breaded fruits - like a pudding, wonderful.
