500. Thanks, Glouglouburp! This one had the "5" in "5%" crossed out with a black marker and replaced with a "9." Not sure when that happened, but, judging by the bite on the mid-palate, it’s probably not a lie. Pours jet black with a thick, surging, creamy, towering, bubbly, moussy dark tan head that really hangs around and around. Gorgeous. Harmonious nose of chocolate, very slight hint of plum, and a bit of black bread. Rich, creamy, medium body with well-placed soft carb. Chocolate, a bit of sugar, and a generically fruity note comprise the mid-palate. Mild finish. Not much complexity of flavor, but still very pleasing and drinkable. Good stuff.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2008
500 ml bottle from Trappe a Fromage, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with basically no light transmission, nice deep mocha head that fades fairly quickly and cleanly. Aroma: Lots of big, rich, deep, dark aromas of chocolate, some coffee, lots of molasses and black licorice, grape-like fruitiness, smells very sweet. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly soft effervescence, a touch chalky. Flav.: Much like the nose, but a bit more subdued, plenty of milk chocolate with hints of coffee, lots of molasses, a bit of licorice and restrained fruits, hints of herbal minty greens; a touch of sweetness, but nothing like the nose would lead you to believe, a little bitterness and a bit of ashen dark malt that lingers with a bit of alcohol (approaching too much).

Where can I get one of these magical, crazy, beer-producing cows??

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2008
Dark brown with nice tan head. Aroma is dark malts and roasted bitter coffee. Flavour is coffee with a nice bitter and dry finish. Not overly thick but the flavour is roasty and enticing.

MJGG (950) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2008
Bouteille brune de 500 ml. Brassin de 2006, donc vieille de près de deux ans. Arômes doux de torréfaction. Robe noire très opaque, légère mousse mocha. Cette bière est très douce en bouche, avec une touche sucrée. La torréfaction est également très présente. En arrière-goût le houblon se manifeste, ainsi qu’une légère touche d’alcool. Une bière qui se boit très bien, l’alcool est très discret pour une bière à 9%.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2007
Pours a jet black color with small brown highlights and a medium light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt with a lactic presence. The flavor is lactic with chocolate and roasted malt, there’s a omnipresent sweetness except in the finish where it is bitter. The body is medium to full with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. The alcohol is not perceptible, overall this is a very good beer.

Bouteille 500ml. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti doux, moyen de chocolat au lait (notes lactiques), léger de chocolat noir et de fruits (raisins) avec des notes de houblon herbeux et de café moka ainsi que des traces épicées (réglisse noire). Ronde-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture riche, crémeuse et aux notes petites sirupeuses. Moyen goût de levures fruitées (raisins) accompagné d’un goût de chocolat au lait sucré (légèrement lactique) et de notes de réglisse noire lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût moyennement amer de malt rôti (avec des notes de brûlé et terreuses), léger de chocolat noir avec des notes de biscuits sucrés, parallèlement a des notes d’alcool doux réchauffant puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût de houblon herbeux asséchant ainsi qu’un léger goût de café moka. Post-goût long et plutôt sec, moyennement amer de rôti, de café, de chocolat au lait et léger de houblon herbeux avec des notes fruitées (moût de raisins) et d’alcool doux.

radiomgb (2236) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2007 Black in colour, beige coloured head, good retention and lacing. The aroma was of milk chocolate, dark fruits, light alcohol, light sweetness, some coffee, liquorice. The flavour was creamy, lots of milk chocolate, mocha coffee, malt balls for sure (as Lubiere said), great sugary sweetness. Smooth but at the same time moderatly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long and rich, creamy and bitter. Slightly lacking in aroma, it makes up for it greatly in flavour. Only light alcohol throughout, hard to believe that this is 9%.

500ml bottle from <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/quebec/v target=blank>Métro Joannette in Verdun, Quebec for $3.99.
Purchased on December 28, 2006 and opened on January 11, 2007
