650 ml bottle at home. Black color with brown head. Aroma in the beginning is full of green pepper.. Lots of green pepper. As it gets warmer the aroma gets better too, roasted malty, coffee, cocoa, chocolate, light spicy. Taste is much better than the aroma, sweet and bitter, coffee, chocolate, cocoa, vanilla. Full silky oily body with soft carbonation.

22 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99 from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, big chocolate, bigger vanilla, espresso, caramel, smooth mouth feel, full bodied, sticks to the glass, no sign of the abv, very solid beer.

Partagée en compagnie de mon band. Cheers all! Liquide sombre et pénétrant affichant une tête crémeuse et couleur mocha. Après quelques instants, cette dernière se résorbe en grande partie avant de ressembler à la créma d’un cappuccino. Un nez de malts bien chauffés sans jamais avoir brûlé, de café froid mais surtout de chocolat. Un fabuleux chocolat noir en abondance. Saveurs bien précises d’un café fort et réconfortant ponctué d’une pointe anisée. Le tout est crémeux et riche, sans être décadent. L’alcool y est parfaitement dissimulé alors que je croque dans ce chocolat à pleines dents! Ohhhhh que c’est bon.......

Dark beer with a short lived dark brown foamy head that shrank to a lasting wisp on the surface. Really rich coffee and chocolate nose. Very smooth creamy mouth feel. This is a huge sipping beer. Like liquid chocolate with coffee and vanilla addedd. The alcohol is present but not intrusive. I almost thought this had a little of the hot pepper in it. If you like big flavor bomb stouts, this is a great one.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2016
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a dark brown creamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of nice floral coffee notes with some chocolate and vanilla notes is quite exquisite. Taste is a nice mix of floral coffee notes with some chocolate and vanilla, light roasted malt with some residual sugar also discernable. Body is full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. This si a great stout and probably better than the barrel-aged version.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee and alcohol aroma. Heavy dark sweet toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.
