GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2011
Bière noire d’ébène coiffée d’un ample col mocha laissant une belle dentelle au verre. Des arômes de café, de pain brûlé, de cacao. Moyennement amère avec une pointe de sucre. Bière généreuse, onctueuse offrant une longue fin amère et arômatique. Mondial de la bière 2011.

SlovakSniper (3161) - 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.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2011
2011-10-30. Black body with a small frothy tan head. 3+ Fairly bitter, hoppy flavour, herbal-anise like flavour. Lingering green hop bitterness in the finish. 7+ Similar aroma, green leafy hop profile, very light herbal touche. 7+ Medium plus palate. Pretty decent. Cask Days 2011, Toronto

Lanchester (183) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2011
Pint on tap at DDC. Pours jet black with a bubbly and dimpled mocha-colored head...quite formidable looking. If chocolate covered hops were to exist, this beer may very well represent that creation, a bold, earthy and resinous scent. Roasted and chocolaty malts vie for attention against a prominent hop character; finishes bitter and green with lingering pleasant hop aromatics. Smooth on the palate, the carbonation lends an ever-so-slight prickliness in the mouth. A hop-lovers stout for sure, while being balanced enough to remain sessionable.

Tap at blind tiger. Burnt cocoa and wood... Some chocolate as well. Supple and rich.. Nice foreign with sweet vanilla finish.

blankboy (6045) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2012
Cask at Cask Days 2011. Beer #22 of festival. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a small lasting bubbly off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, a bit of smoke and light leafy hops. Nice flavour of roasted malt and lots of leafy hops -- the hops really stand out and I love it. Huge bitter finish. Medium+ bodied. A very good Stout.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (en fût) le 31 mai 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D14C3K516i). Bière noire opaque. Col mince beige foncé persistant. Odeur de sirop de café. Très douce, un peu sucrée, assez amère. Goût de café brûlé bien présent, de chocolat au lait en finale. Se boit bien, pas sirupeuse ni trop lourde.

neongolden (409) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
(Sample on tap at the Montreal brewpub, May 28 2014) Pours black with a small pale brown head, no lace. Aroma heavily roasted, dark chocolate and coffee, sweet dark malt, leafy hops, a little licorice/anise, slightly smoky. Flavour follows the nose, big roasty profile, chocolate, slightly sweet core, a bit of coniferous hops, lightly bitter on the finish from hops and big roast profile but malts persist. Light-medium mouth feel, moderate carb, no booze. Really flavourful and delicious stout for the ABV, definitely a recommended drinker by the pint.

Boutip (4726) - 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.
