COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Beer from Craig and Lisa last year at Christmas. Been in the cellar. Pitch black with tan head. Warm, lovely aroma of chocolate, coffee, hint of wood smoke. Similar flavours. Very smooth. This is an awesome beer.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2012 6-pack from Marche Omni. Pours black with very little head. Aroma is roasty with chocolate and vanilla. Taste is smooth roasted malt with vanilla and chocolate, with a bitter dark-chocolate finish. Mild carbonation with a very smooth body. Stouts (or beer in general) don’t get much better than this!

Keg at West 50 , Missisugua, Ontario, 3rd May 2013. A fitting mile stone, wow what a beer, looks fantastic, nice white, fluffy head and dark body, aroma is complex, coffee, expresso, some vanilla. Taste is smooth and luxurious, full flavour, drinks like a dream

On tap at Brothers in Ottawa. Wow! Amazing nose on this, the most enjoyable nose i’ve ever experienced, and the flavour doesn’t disappoint either. Definitely holds it own against St. Ambroise Oatmeal and other world class stouts.

Keg at Brewdog Birmingham. Might just be the best beer I’ve ever tried. Certainly the best Stout. Wowee - flavour packed from first sniff until 5 minutes after the swig. This tantalised my nose shooter and tongue lung threshold equally. Mega blinding.

I want this to be the last beer to pass my lips before I breathe my last breath. Stunning, does exactly what the brewer was envisioning when he planned for this beer. Heavenly.

Its body has a very dark brown burnt wood color which only allows light to seek through at the edges. The pour produces a tall and thick chocolate milkshake like head. This tall head slowly settles to a thin tightly packed cap of foam that makes lots of lacing on the glass. The aroma is deep and full bready yeast notes, toasted grain, powdery cocoa, wet leaves and damp earth. Its medium to full body has good mix of roasted malt sweetness with hint of bitterness from both roasted malt and hops. Up first are chocolaty cocoa powder notes on top of toasted bready grain and earthy yeast with the slightest wet old woody presence. In the middle I pick up light vanilla bean notes as well as a light cream soda like flavor notes. This moves into the finish which adds dark roasted coffee and earth leafy hop bitterness. On the palate it has a smooth creamy feel with mellow carbonation.

Noire d’encre, mousse beige, col persistant fin. Nez fantastique : chocolat, cannelle, vanille, caramel, des trucs suréalistes de mon enfance, de la torréfaction noire mais douce, jamais trop amère. En bouche c’est idem, douceur, très peu (ou pas) d’effervescence, des épices, de l’équilibre, chocolat/vanille mais ça va surtout bien au delà. Exceptionnel.

This Quebec Stout is the perfection of a stout. It as a distant smell of cocoa and burnt malt. The taste explode in a twist of vanila and roasted malt. Drink this any day at any time! Cheers!
