solidfunk (6745) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Nice nutty bitter stout. Pours black with some head and lacing. Average carbonation. Aroma of roast malt and some nut. A little booze. Finishes boozy sweet and bitter. The best part of this beer is the follow through rarher than the nose. Tap at barhop.

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. Nearly black pour with a small but lasting frothy beige lasting head. Simple aroma - strong roast, not sweet, plenty of campfire and light peat, some alcohol presence. Taste is sweeter, the peat is more in the background, and there is a good amount of balancing fresh green herbal bitterness, like tossing a spruce bough on a campfire. Slightly thin mouthfeel, lightly astringent with not much carbonation, and it finishes dry and ashy, a little residual sweetness in the aftertaste - really smooth and well made.

Sigmund (6231) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2015
Sample on tap at What’s Brewing BF, Stavanger. Black colour, tan head. Pretty impressive foreign extra stout, coffee notes, quite dry, some sharp burnt notes in the finish keep me from giving it a higher score.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2011
In short: A full bodied and very hoppy roasted stout. Very tasty and very well balanced
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head with good retention leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: The strong nose is medium roasted, cacao, coffee beans and milk chocolate. Taste packs a lot of crunchy roasted chocolaty malts, milky notes, black cake, roasted coffee beans. Overall crunchy mouthfeel/sensation. Nothing in the way of fruity flavors but I didn’t feel like it needed any. So far that would be a very competent roasted stout. But let’s not forget the hops. This beer is massively hopped for the style and the resinous leafy hops work admirably well with the rest of the beer. The name “Libre Échange” means “Free Trade”, it is a complicated business concept. But the other day I read an article in a business magazine, it was “the”.

Boutip (5581) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2011
Draft: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice medium off-white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with light sugar notes with some black chocolate and some light aromatic coffee. Taste is an easy drinking mix between some black chocolate with notes of coffee and lactose. Body is about average with a somewhat creamy texture and some good carbonation. Well brewed with dryness offset by nice amount of lactose notes.

JulienHuxley (5417) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2011
4 oz pour on tap at Mondial 2011. Pitch black pour with relatively light colored head. Aroma of dark chocolate, cold coffee and lots of burnt toast/roasted malt. Taste is bitter, great blend of coffee and dark chocolate flavors, with a tiny bit of molasses-like grainy sweetness for balance. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, with a smooth finish. Very good stout.

On tap @ DDC (Montréal). Black with a medium beige head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, milk chocolate, cacao and sweetness notes. Taste is slightly sweet with roasted malt, milk chocolate, cacao and light bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Good balance and drinkability. Nice Stout.

SlovakSniper (4610) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2011
(Sample at DDC) Deep black in color. Medium brown head with good retention. Aromas are structured around roasted malts, burnt notes, dark cacao and sweet caramel. Taste is more on fresh ground coffee and pure chocolate. Body is enough full with soft carbonation and nice creamy texture. The finish is roasty and bitter. I need to drink this beer again.

rodenbach99 (3976) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2011
Verre de dégustation au DDC. Bière noire avec une belle couche de mousse brune. La nez est complexe avec des notes de café et de vanille. Il est classique pour une stout avec aussi de la torréfaction. La bouche est bien sucrée, cette bière semble liquide et mince. Le café rôti et les grains grillés dominent les saveurs. Un bon foreign extra stout. 6/10

On tap at the brewpub Black pour with a rocky mocha head. Sweet malty aroma, some lactic notes, and some dry fruit. Thick mouthfeel, low carb. Subtly sweet cocoa finish with a light lacic finish.
