Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

341 ml bottle from a dépanneur over in Gatineau. Great aromas and flavours. I’m getting marshmallows, toasted dark malt, chocolate and black coffee. Nice finish and just a really nice stout overall.

I think this one is over-hyped, I taste basically no sweentess the malt is overpowered by the strong chocolate, coffee bean taste. Good, smooth, perfect ABV, but I can’t say this up there with any of Founder’s stouts for example. This is a B-plus, A-minus stout, nowhere near the perfect rating it has.

jamaty (1437) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 11, 2015
Negra. Copiosa espuma beige que cae pronto. Fuerte aroma a chocolate con notas de vainilla. En boca es puro chocolate de principio a fin. Apenas gas. Cremosa de textura. Algún recuer de vainilla. Es lo de menos. Chocolate por doquier. Magnifica.

Cerveja escura com espuma caramelo persistente. Aroma adocicado de baunilha com toque de café. Bom corpo, aveludado. Dulçor suave lembrando chocolate seguido de retrogosto amargo e forte de café.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel, Montreal. A lovely looking black beer topped by a creamy, finger-thick tan head that lasts. Nice curtains. A bit weak on the nose I think, with chocolate, vanilla and some mocha. Full to medium body, rather smooth on the palate. Chocolate, mocha and a roasted touch in the flavor, lasting for a long time. Rather lovely this one, even though the aroma could use a bit more punch. 150612

Bière de caractère, une stout bien équilibrée. Arômes très présents de café, cacao et vanille. Un peu cendrée pour mon palais mais très intéressante !
