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.)

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 (2364) - 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).

Lukaduke (2312) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 22, 2012
Pours a bubbly black with a gaseous mocha head the laces out quickly. The aromas are great vanilla, chocolate, wheat, malts, boozy coffee and a hint of violet.... on the lips its has a medium body with a good bubbles... but the flaors are not quite as complex as the aromas... slight chocolatey coffer taste with heavy malt and a nice semisweet finish.

Verse une biére noire, opaque. Le col beige s’estompe rapidement et laisse ses traces sur le verre. L’arôme est celle de café, chocolat et d’alcool. En bouche, sucre et café. Bon équilibre.

presario (4695) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2012
Bottle. Head is slow to rise but tops out over an inch of rich cream on black beer. Dusty chocolate and coffee aroma; and vanilla if you look. Definate alcohol presence. Thick body with sugary notes. Sharp coffee bitterness and chocolate. Heavy malt. A bit like a cold Turkish Mocha Coffee.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti (notes brûlées), de café, moyen de chocolat noir avec des notes de chocolat au lait, (notes lactiques) et des traces de vanille. Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas ainsi qu’une texture riche, moyennement crémeuse et aux faibles notes sirupeuses. Léger goût de chocolat au lait et de crème brûlée (faibles notes lactiques) accompagné de notes de fumée de bois et de traces de vanille lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement d’un goût de malt rôti avec un moyen goût de chocolat noir et quelques traces de mélasse sucrée puis progressivement, un goût de café noir s’installe jusqu’en finale (notes de café brûlé) et est accompagné de notes de houblon herbeux. Post-goût long-moyen et un peu sec, moyennement amer de rôti et de café avec des notes de chocolat noir.
