Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 29, 2012
from Mondial de la Bière 2011, Strasbourg - cloudy dark brown beer with a rubish hue; pretty nice foam left; nice lacework; deep aroma of cold coffee, cocoa and vanilla, roasted and with notes of hazelnut; full-bodied and creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation; some sweetness and a respectable bitterness, very long chocolatey and nutty finish with light notes of warming alcohol - superb

Bouteille 600 mL. Brune-foncee presque noire. Belle mousse qui s’estompe tranquillement. Nez de grains rotis et de reglisse. Bouche onctueuse de grains rotis, reglisse, melasse avec un cote l’acte. Corps moyen a fort. Excellente.

Wow. This is my type of stout. Pours black with a big frothy beige head. Aroma is rich dark chocolate and lightly roasted malts. Taste is light roasted malts, dry belgian mouthfeel, bitter dark chocolate all in a great balance. I could drink a lot of this.

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2010
UPDATED: APR 3, 2011 Ceramic. Pours dark brown, forms a creamy tan head. Smells chocolatey and toasty, with hints of oak. Little to no hops in that one. Two surprising things in that one : first, it is slightly smoky (which is a pretty good thing), and second, how persistent is the banana taste on that one. Also, it just never tastes it’s 8%. Imagine a MUCH darker dunkelweizen, and you have Matt’s Sleepy Time. My beercrush of 2010, without a doubt. EDIT : The 2011 version of the MST seems to be a little boozier than the first offering, but has a stronger wood-oak taste as well. While the first offering felt like stout-ish Weizenbock, this one has much more of an old ale "feel" to it. To be honest, I drank this one just after a Podge Imperial Stout, and while it blew the Podge out of the water, the Podge had certainly more of a stout feeling to it.

Gorbalev (2906) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Best of Beaus 2012 4 pack. Pours pitch black with a small oily head. Aroma is strong roast, alcohol, and sugar. Taste is very interesting and complex - strong roast and alcohol in the classic impy sense but mixed with a strong, sweet sugary taste, as well as licorice. Also a dark fruit and port like taste. Short finish. A very complex and unique stout that certainly divided the room I shared it with - I quite liked it.

cattaneopapa (145) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
600ml bottle from LCBO #568. Alc./Vol. 8.0% Batch No.: 6571. Packaged Date: 04.20.2014. Toronto, ON. Pours an opaque deep brown colour with one finger of tanned head. Aroma mainly has notes of coffee and chocolate. The taste matches the aroma with a pleasantly smooth bitter finish. Light body with moderate carbonation.

Canmoore (232) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Pours pitch black with a tan head, aroma consists of Belgian yeast and dark rich fruits. Lots of esters, and coffee notes aswell. Tasting notes are quite sweet and include dates, figs, plums, raisins. Belgian yeast, chocolate, coffee, and the oak cask comes through. The finish is spicy, and lingers on the palate. This is perhaps the best beaus offering that I have had!

Bendrixian (1056) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Pours pitch black with a frothy two fingered head. Estery aroma that blend well with roast, caramel and chocolate notes and sports a backdrop of dark fruit. Creamy palate with a good roasty toasty bitterness and some yeasty flavours make this a wonderful brew.

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2010
A dark brown stout with reddish hues and a thick brown head. A pungeant chocolate aroma with light fruity esters, dunkel like, very nice. In mouth, a smooth sweet chocolate with loads of bananas and berries, light cloves, chocolate notes, not a stout really but still a good offering. Bottle from brewery, shared with Inertiaboy, Diogene, Mike H. and GRM.

swiseman (424) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 3, 2011
A nice, big beer. lots of malt, chocolate and nuts. However, the lack of balance disguises some of the more subtle flavors. Seemed to have a light moutfeel considering the style, but this works for it. definitely worth trying.
