BiereLuc (1259) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2013
Bière noire, peu mousseuse. Le nez est rôti, légèrement chocolaté. En bouche, c’est plutôt du café noir avec une touche de chocolat plus sucrée et une fine amertume en finale. Notons que la bière est très pétillante. À boire sans gêne!

Frothmeister (697) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
341ml bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma Is up front with coffee notes, cocoa, vanilla, molasses. Smells tasty. Medium bodied, with light sweetness the taste is mildly bitter with espresso, molasses, and a light vanilla note. My only complaint is that it might be a little over carbonated, but damn, this is a great session stout. Don’t let the simple label, and cheap price fool you. This is a REALLY good stout.

lesifflebiere (1573) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
Mousse brune ; liquide très noir et plutôt épais. Même à la lumière, son opacité est préservée. En nez, beaucoup de cacao, de café et de sucre. Bois et chocolat noir. Au goût, elle est pétillante, présente du chocolat surtout, mais également du café, du bois et du malt grillé. Un bon stout (qui tient presque plus de la schwartzbier allemande), elle est sans prétention mais sans réel éclat. Elle manque peut-être un peu de saveur et, par ricochet, d’audace, mais elle demeure agréable et de grande qualité, en plus d’être assez accessible pour son style.
