341ml bottle, 5.5% a/v, received as a gift from my brother. Pours a lovely oily black, with a nice chestnut brown head. The aroma is of chocolate, espresso and nuts as well as some warming alcohol. The taste is very well balanced and perfect for a cool day. Nuts, espresso, chocolate and some dark stone fruit notes. Very impressive and tremendously well balanced. The palate is quite full and the taste stays with you for a long time. Great choice bro!

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2011 Bière noire au col beige présentant des arômes de torréfaction et de café. Simple, crémeuse, elle évoque la mélasse. C’est un très bon stout.

Aroma of fish, alcohol, grape skins. Pours with a beautiful brown-beige head and a ruby-black body. Extra points for the small baggy of roasted malts, which means this one gets a perfect score in the appearance department! Taste is a huge chocolate sunday rush with a coffee finish. Palate is a little too sweet for my liking, though. This is a very good stout, nonetheless.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours a mostly black body with an off white head. Light creme and vanilla a bit sweet with chocolate, licorice, and light coffee tones. Creamy and minerals with a drying finish. Nice.

Metalchopz (2198) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
Originally rated November 2005. Pours a pitch black colour with no sign of ruby highlights. The brown head is thick, creamy, foamy and fizzy with great retention. Smells hints of caramel, roasted malts and molasse. Bitterness throughout with a smooth finish. Then, bitterness comes around in the background. Smoky notes in there too, and not sweet at all, nor too dry. More on the coffee side, than on the chocolat side. Great generic stout with a smooth taste and a good alcohol content.

godofsky (265) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2010
341ml bottle. pours almost black with a thick tan head that quickly fades. leaves minimal lacing. aroma is roasted malts and some faint notes of chocolate. taste is all chocolate. a little thin and watery for my liking, but at $7.99 for a 6 pack it’s a good beer for when you’re with your casual beer drinking friends.

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
Pours black with shades of ruby, forms a somewhat bubbly tan head. Aroma of nuts, chocolate and fruits (black cherries). Taste is still very chocolatey, but suprisingly roasty and smoky as well. A little watery for a stout (not that it tastes water at all -- it’s just a little thin). Pretty round finish. Noticeable sweetness. I wouldn’t call it an everyday beer at all, but an everyday stout?

DerWeg (1482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
Deep dark brown color and tan cap look the part. Aroma is mainly fruity with phenols suggesting spice. Taste is closer to sweet stout, showing fruit and dark sugars, very measured roast and coffee character, a bit of earthy spice. Is arguably a bit watery. A light-bodied quaffer for the toe-dippers.
