Deep black beer with a good head. Clear aromas of torrecfaction and sugar. One of the greatest Quebec beer.

Pours black with no light getting through, but a ruby brown shine at the base when tilting glass into light. 1.5 finger mocha head. Unproportional retention, but really beautiful lacing! Like picture worthy lacing! Nose: Fresh Skim Milk, Coffee, Chocolate. Taste: Something I cant put my finger on!!!! Its probably the first taste of the lactose, which I get right after..coffee & chocolate of course, at 9% ABV im getting a bit of alcohol which is expected, but tolerable. Say in comparison to St. Ambroise who do an imperial stout at 9.2% ABV and its a little hard to drink, but this is perfect. Mouth: Some good body from the lactose, which they do specify on the bottle. Low to low-medium carbonation. A tad of stickiness around the lips. Overall: "SOMETHING DIFFERENT", a good stout with a twist, i think brewing with lactose really sets it apart. Very very good honestly, and at 9% ABV these 500ml bottles will give you a buzz which makes this a nice after-dinner couch beer!

La meilleur stout que j’ ai bu jusqu’à présent. Chocolaté bitter a l’os. Le café se fait aussi remarquer tout comme l’alcool. Le meilleur est dans la finale: un bon petit gout crémeux qui saura plaire a tous...EXCELLENT!

Has a nice sweet aroma with obvious fruit notes, and the distinct smell of alcohol. Very dark with a long lasting head that is light to medium brown in color. It has a wonderfully sweet flavor with caramel, butterscotch, licorice, and chocolate flavors. Nice big body, feels the way a stout should. In my opinion one of the best stouts out there.

McBootie (10) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2011
This stout is a bit high in alc for me, and feels like it too. But its just so chocolatey and coffee I’m hooked. Near black pour that was smooth from the bottle. The aroma is rich with dark chocolate, espresso and caramel. Same flavors too with some alc strength.. Probably would be better in a year or so of ageing.

Bouteille 500ml. Une fois versé, d’un noir foncé et opaque nous viens un parfum de chocolat. Au goût, le chocolat s’estompe à la longue. Plutôt sucrée, cette bière veloutée par la présence de lactose la rend divine. Note de café et de malt. Elle ne donne pas l’impression d’avoir 9% en alcool.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2010 Pours a beautiful black colour with a big frothy mocca head. Aroma is a little sweet and filled with roasted malts, chocolate and some coffee. The taste is somewhat sweet, malty with a nice light bitterness present throughout. Full-bodied, soft carbonation, fairly thick on the palate. Overall this is one of my favourite beers, just excellent.

The pour: a nice warm black with a persistent and rich reddish-cream head. The aroma: strong notes of burnt caramel, followed by roasty malts, molasses, and dark chocolate with hints of coffee. The taste: Bold yet easy drinking, best enjoyed slowly with a sweet start and pleasantly lingering bitterness to finish. The verdict: a true indulgence and pleasure to drink.

Chocolat avec une touche de cafe, plutot douce. Jamais on ne detecte le haut taux d alcool. Tres fruiter, l ester de banane se discerne le plus. Complexe et delicieuse! Chocolaty with coffee notes, sweet. Never noticed the 9% abv. Lots of fruitiness, with banana ester in proeminance. Very complex and very good!

500mL brown glass pry-top. No date. Bought at Super Marché Rahman in Montreal. Appearance: Poured into an Imperial pint. 1 inch frothy tan head atop a solidly opaque black body. Nose: Café au lait, fresh cream, whisper of white smoke, coffee syrup, dark leaf tobacco. Smells like medium roast coffee with cream. Palate: Bright and crisp with some light hops and some acid, which quickly switches to being creamy. Coffee and mocha flavors dominate, and there’s some oxidized notes here too. Not sure if that’s on purpose. The finish is long and rich and creamy, all mocha. Notes: A seriously tasty brew for the coffee and/or mocha enthusiast. Would love to see this on nitro. Wish they dated the bottles, dammit! What’s with brewers these days??
