COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

BiereLuc (764) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
(bouteille 750, plus de 2 ans d’âge) - Bière noire, peu mousseuse avec une effervescence moyenne. Le nez présente des vapeurs pointues de cerises sûres et de cacao. En bouche, l’acidité des griottes s’étale puis elle est enrobée par la douceur chocolatée des grains. Le mélange est parfait. Cette bière porte son nom à merveille!

Noire. Nez: acide. Fruit. Cerise. Biscuit. Chocolat. Bouche: sucré. Acide. Un peu levure. Poudreuse. Fruité. Framboise. Cerise. Gâteau forêt noire effectivement. Chocolat noir. Belle amertume surtout en finale. J'aime l'idée.

Someone (probably Dany) shared this in the evening after the HF Harvest Festival. Pours brown with a small tanned yellow head. Caramel and old fruit on the nose. More caramel with a touch of acid. Sweet and old fruit. Long musk and a touch more tartness on the finish.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Cherries develop lots of aroma and flavor as well as subtle acidity atop this Belgian-style Imperial Stout’s chocolate malts.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the blackened dark brown.
-This is lean, elegant and easy drinking for a 10% plus brew.
-The soft bubbling increases drinkability.
-Vanilla flavors link chocolate and cherries.

Bottle.

[4137-20111119] 750mL bottle. Odd fragrant fruity malt aroma has an unpleasant pungentness. Black brown body with a medium-lasting foamy dark tan head. Cherry-infused roast malt flavour has quite a boozy sweet fruit roast base throughout. Full body. Odd transition from sour beers but settles in nicely. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.5+

hivemind (693) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle at Brouhaha with Andy, PJ and Niles after Igloofest. Great black pour with a red aura. Tan head. Aroma is sweet dark chocolate and dried red fruit. Tastes thin and yet rich. Slightly dry, awesome dark cherry flavor mixed with notes of chocolate and a little roast. Absolutely loved this beer.

cfrancis (2153) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
Thanks to Ian for this. Pours black as night with a thin brown head. Aroma is bitter chocolate and light cherries. Taste is dark chocolate, slight cherry, and roasted malts. Nice but I wanted more.

Pwn3d (1961) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle at the brewpub after igloo fest 2012. Supple stout with cherries... Not overly sweet. More dark fruits than I would have expected, fantastic.

jercraigs (7337) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2011
2011-11-19. Red tinged black bodiy with a small beige head that fades. 3+ Mild aroma at first, sweet fruity notes, dark fruit, muted dark malt. 7+ Flavour of muted dark malt, mild sour cherry, generic fruity character, lingering cherry pits. 7+ Smooth average to medium bodied palate, very lightly carbonated. Nice, bit muddled but quite pleasant. Bit of cocoa, black fruit cake. Bottle shared at Rudolf’s Sourfest 2011

A very good dessert beer! Although not a big fan of fruit beer makes it a very pleasant beer with the acidity of cherry in the stout. Try it with a cheescake you won’t be disapointed...
