COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stout Moka. L’Exploité rappelle l’époque où les bières noires et sucrées ravitaillaient les travailleurs du port de Londres, qui déchargeaient, à la sueur de leur front, des sacs de café moka et de cacao. L’Exploité est brassée avec ces ingrédients et offre des notes de torréfactions complexes, légèrement vanillées. On y goûte des saveurs de café alcoolisé, de chocolat et de malt rôti, équilibrées par l’amertume et les sucres résiduels. (Contient du lactose.) English: L’Exploité recalls a time when dark and sweet beers were the staple beers of the London Harbour porters who worked very hard unloading bags of mocha coffee and cocoa beans. L’Exploité is brewed with these ingredients and presents complex torrefied notes with subtle hints of vanilla. We find tastes of alchoolized coffee, chocolate and roasted malts balanced with the bitterness and the residual sugars. (Contains lactose.)

probstblueribbon (2742) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass. 12NO12.

App.: Deep brown-black with a nice mocha head. Aroma: Intense chocolate and coffee, vanilla, molasses, big stuff. Palate: Medium+ body, oddly full, round effervescence. Flav.: plenty of coffee and dark chocolate, oddly sweet, a little harsh, not as nice as the nose; strangely sweet with good bitterness and a long, sticky malt finish.

Had potential, missed the mark for me.

AGAquino (658) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
From notes, On cask at Cask Days 2011. Dark, almost black, with a small foamy head. Aroma and flavours of roasted nuts, coffee and some herbal notes.

reebtogi (3831) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2012
341ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger beige head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild coffee and chocolate some roasted grains. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Interesting and recommended.

Ferris (2006) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Bottle - Smells like chocolate syrup but in a nostalgic good way. Opaque brown black with an off white head. Bitter chocolate and coffee with a bitterness throughout. Body is a bit lacking and the cloying finish doesn’t do it for me.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2012
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - black beer with a little beige foam left; strong aroma of mocha and vanilla with some grainy notes; velvety palate, some sweetness; a good malt body; a fair earthy bitterness before long notes of mocha and nuts in the finish

LBarouf (112) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
341ml bottle Pours in a pitch black with a creamy white head. Sweet aromas of milkshake and milk chocolate. Full body, very sweet, with cacao and cold vanilla coffee dominating the mix, with a very slight metallic presence in the middle palate that is hidden prety quickly by all the sweetness of the chocolate malts. A bit too sweet for my taste but still a good beer. It deserve well it’s Stout Moka moniker.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. Impenetrable black with a small frothy tan head. Aroma of licorice, nutty roast, coffee and crushed mint leaves, herbal with mild lactic sourness and alcohol. Taste follows, with dry charred oak barrel - perhaps a little light on the malt body. Thin, slick, weakly carbonated, has a sweet raisiny sticky finish - a bit disappointing after that tremendous roasty aroma.

Whatup14 (583) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 Bouteille 341ml. Couleur noire opaque, mousse moka dense laissant une belle dentelle. Arôme de café noir, de vanille, de chocolat et de cacao. Goût de café noir, de chocolat, bonne amertume, un peu sucrée voir fruitée. L’alcool est assez présent malgré un taux de 6,5%. Carbonation moyenne, moyennement riche.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours like coca cola. Has an odd sweet kind of aroma, with some more cola kind of a vibe, some vanilla and mocha but it doesn’t really blend very well. Comes together in a mishmash of tastes that has some sweetness, bitter, and even some kind of herb. Can’t say I’m a huge fan. Bottle from Peluso.

Metalchopz (2120) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2012
Purchased a mixed 12-pack of "Les Connaisseurs" beers from this brewery. Pours a real dark brown colour with very little red highlights. The creamy-bubbly head is light brown in colour, huge, very long-lasting and fogs all sides with lacing. Beautiful roasted malts at first, then the coffee comes out with notes of chocolate, molasses, dark fruits and vanilla to balance things out. Silky, a bit watery mouthfeel with not much stickiness. The hop comes out in the taste, and it is the one I am not fond of (that makes beer taste rusty). It does calm down after a while and you can only taste it in the finish. Kind of sweet tasting overall with cocoa and even apples. Not really feeling the coffee much here. Still, not bad, but prefer the taste of the Mill Street Coffee Porter (even though different styles - great coffee taste).
