Let me start by saying that i usually do not like stouts at all. They always tend to be too sweet for my liking. That being said, this stout really took me by surprise. I generally like most of Beaus products.

Pour is dark brown, almost black, with a short-lived tan cap. Nose is timid but complex: the usual chocolate and toasted malt, but also lots of dark fruit, brandied cherries and a bit of funky, doughy Belgian yeast. Taste is a sweet, fruity malt with a good dose of spice. Alcohol is there for warmth but never overwhelms. Interesting concoction, and a nice winter sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gluepot (240) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2015
A relatively mild nose featuring cocoa, roasted malt and a hint of Belgian yeast. Taste profile features chocolate, cocao, cream, nuts, mild coffee, Belgian yeast (but it is not overdone) and rich dark berries. Solid mouth feel and body. Well balanced, rich and complex.

Tranquillity (1584) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2015
Cask at cask days, Toronto 2015. Dark brown, small brown bubbles. The aroma is raisins, the taste is dried fruits and nuts. Very milky. Neat!

Metalflake (71) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Poured into a pint glass, beer poured a deep brown/black with a thin beige head that dissipated about halfway through the glass. Excellent stout - heavy and thick in the mouth, aromas of coffee and dark chocolate with dark fruity undertones. Plenty of alcohol warmth...I could see myself installed behind a few of these on a dark winter’s night. Really, really good.

Franckg (654) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2015
Arômes de chocolat, raisins secs, houblon et toffee. En bouche, c’est dominé par le chocolat noir. On perçoit des traces de grains de café grillés, bois et sucre. La finale est plutôt longue, les houblons et grains de café apportant une légère amertume. Effervescence moyenne et bonne rondeur en bouche. Bonne bière en général. Ma meilleure de Beau’s jusqu’à maintenant. J’aurais aimé une présence plus accrue du vieillissement en fût de chêne mais ca reste une bière savoureuse.

maximet (148) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2015
Pitch black with a nice thick light brown head. Dark fruit sweetness, dark chocolate, a little roasted side. Nice balance, start sweet then merge to a bitter brew. Full body with a slick texture.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
600 ml bottle. Pours a ruby reddish black with a thick, creamy, resilient beige head. Aroma is chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla and coffee. Flavor is chocolate, very roasty, oldish, figs. Finish is strangely woody, vanilla, and coffeeish. Lingering chocolate and boozey notes. Medium to full body, oily and viscous mouthfeel, weak to medium carbonation. Solid!

manuelMTL (240) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a thin brown head. Malty sweetness dominates the nose. Light chocolate aromas. Dark fruits are also perceptible. Mainly dried prunes. Taste is esthery with a warming alcohol. The chocolate and coffee notes are more present than in the nose. Still sweet with lots of dark fruits. Overall I expected more body for 8% ABV. Not really a stout but more towards a Doppelbock but good though.

600ml bottle from the LCBO. Deep brown body with thick brown head. Chocolate, rum, raisin, alcohol and fig aromas. Taste is creamy and overly filling. Alcohol warmth overpowers the finish.
