Bottle: Thanks Secret Sinterklaas: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized serious brown foamt head on top of a black colored beer.
Already a very intriguing beer!
Aroma is a nice mix of roast, toasted bread, iron, coffee beans and coffee roast, some chocolate, some mocha, bark, cacoa/sweet chalk toast/roast and some sweet wood roast.
Flavours of roast, malt roast, coffee, some coffee roast, bitters, cream, some brown sugars, mocha, hay/grain/wood toast/roast, a hint of iron/metallic tones, chocolate, dark chocolate milk tones while not lactic, wood roast, sweet roast. Awesome!
Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, roast, malt roast, some coffee, mocha, chocolate and brown sugar tints with a hay toast ending.
Low carbo, creamy and thick and close to siljy mouthfeel, medium to full body and a thicker creamy texture.
Lovely beer! Thick, roast, lot of different sweet sources while this beer does not become too sweet at all. Impressive!

The best of the bunch here. A big roasted and dark beer with a vanilla and woody accented note in the aroma. Sweet and molasses like flavor with a big punch of roast and chocolate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
341ml brown bottle. Black and opaque in the glass. Thin dark brown head with messy lacing. Nose has chocolate and caramel. Taste has choclate, coffee and caramel, sweet and rich. Bit of sweet chocolate and coffee beans in the aftertaste. Body is medium with average carbonation. Pleasant sweet and rich desert type stout, I enjoyed it, but it would not be any everyday drinker.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle. Pours black with a mocha foam coloured head. The nose is dried fruit, cocoa, pretty darn boozy for 6.5%, earthy notes, and caramel. The taste is sweet, with immediate alcohol, burnt coffee, molasses, dried fruit, an almost cognac like note, and more coffee in the surprisingly dry finish. It’s a little uneven, but it sure ain’t bad.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sherbrooke from the BDM Mix Pack, 6.5%. Dark brown pour with a non-existant head (lost carbonation in import/bottle?) Super sweet cocoa and vanilla on the nose, not a ton of earthy roast malts. Taste is very rich in chocolate, and malts, with a sweeter than expected finish. An excellent stout, reminiscent, though not quite as mind-blowing as Aphrodisiaque
