Boutip (4733) - 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.

solidfunk (4018) - 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.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
SlovakSniper (3180) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, 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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
rodenbach99 (3158) - 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

JulienHuxley (3131) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - 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.

Eructoblaster (3024) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
On tap at the Montréal brewpub. Pours an opaque black body with an average, lasting, beige creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with roasted coffee hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries strong roasty and coffeeish notes. Ends with a long bitter/roasty finish. Well done.
