Thanks to Deuane for busting this one out for us to try. Poured into a taster glass.

A - Pours dark brown, bordering on black, with a small, fizzy, one finger tall khaki head leaving spotty lace down the glass.

S - Smells of fire pit smoke, dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and graham cracker malt. Very dark smelling but not to the point of being overpowering.

T - Starts off with a big dose of smokey dark roast slowly giving way to a mix of light coffee and chocolatey sweetness and even more smoke. The finish has just as much smokey roast as it did at the beginning, lingering for some time.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. A bit thin in the feel with plenty of smokey darkness, lingering through the finish.

O - Not too bad. I would have preferred a bit less smoke and a bit more flavor but that isn’t a huge deal. My big problem with this one is the thin feel. If it had a bit more body I think it could have been real good.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bouteille de 500 ml. Dégustée le 14 mars 2011 (pint). Bière noire opaque. Mousse beaucoup, col moyen beige-crème foncé, persistant. Très peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de café très marquée et typée, de sucre. Douce, assez sucrée, très amère en finale. Goût de vanille, de chocolat, de malt rôti. Manque de raffinement, un peu carrée, trop lourde. Décevante, il existe de bien meilleures stouts québécoises.

AlainG (1221) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
Noire opaque, un mince col de mousse qui persiste et se colle aux parois en laissant des traces de dentelle baveuse. Des arômes de torréfaction, de café noir et grains foncé nous parviennent au nez. Le goût est criard dès l’entrée en bouche, c’est effervescent, alors que les saveurs de café noir nous imprègne d’une amertume sèche, qui me semble inhabituel, néanmoins plaisante. On entend le pétillement des bulles telle une boisson gazeuse. (426-281012)

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours black with an orange tint. Very short lasting head. Smells like coffee and dark chocolate. Tastes like coffee, sweet chocolate and ash, with an ashey finish. Body is watery. Nothing remarkable, an okay stout, no more.

Travlr (11842) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle. Black, huge thick brown ice cream cone head. Aroma of chocolate and subtle brandy. Taste is roasted coffee beans, dark cocoa powder. Very impressive for a 5.5% beer.

TheJester (1873) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2011
500 mL bottle. Black with a film of brown head. Roast and chocolate in the aroma, along with a little tinniness. Pretty mild. Lots of roast in the flavour. Not sweet at all. No off flavours. More chocolate as it warms. Good body for the abv. Quite nice.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2011
Bière opaque couleur d’ébene coiffée d’un épais col beige laissant une jolie dentelle au verre. Des arômes capiteux et fruités de pain brûlé et de café avec des notes de fumée d’érable. Délicatement amère avec des trace d’umami. En bouche, elle est onctueuse et légèrement effervescente. Elle offre une finale tout en arômes et en amertume.

drougkolya (276) - Otterburn Park, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2011
Bière de type stout de 5.5% d’alcool, ressemble un peu à une stout dry Irlandaise...comme la murphy, bonne levure!

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Pours a very dark black with a minimal toasted-marshmallow color head. Smells of dark fruits, molasses, and deeply-roasted malt along with a little bit of vanilla and oak. Taste is very similar; quite complex. Very full mouthfeel and fairly drinkable for the type of brew that it is. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-20-2009
