Bottle - Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Wow, the coffee smell is amazing. The tastes is chocolate roasted coffee beans. Lots of strong flavors in here but so good. I can’t stop drinking this one.

On tap at a few places during my trip, this popular jet black stout lives up to the hype. It has a velvety mouthfeel and a fantastic coffee flavor that is well balanced.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with solid tan head. The aroma is amazing--good coffee, burnt malt, some caramel and molasses. It just smells right, reminding of the first time I smelt Speedway Stout. The flavour has some sweet malt initially, caramel, but it’s swamped by hard roast coffee and roast malt bitterness. Loads of roast malt and roast coffee bitterness. The carbonation is excessive, and it lacks body. I find this very ashy and excessively dry--too much so to be a perfect coffee stout. But it is undeniably very good.

Draught @ barVolo, Dieu du Ciel tap take-over.
Jet black, finely bubbled creamy head. Looks like a proper Irish coffee. Lil’ hard candy nose, yeast. Flavour smooth liquorice, dry herby finish. Boys know their stuff...

Half a pinky of tan foam. Dark brown body. Aromas of unsweetened cocoa, and perhaps even a wisp of alder smoked salmon. Thick chewy body. Flavors of black strap molasses and burnt rice from a pan where the water went dry. Not sure why they name it Péché (peach) because there’s no peach characteristic to it, nor does it say anything about peaches in the ingredients. Another great beer from one of the relatively unknown gems of the North American beer scene!

Le goût amer surprend bien le palais car il reste longtemps. La note de café est excellente et cette bière sent excessivement bon. Je la conseille au amateurs de stouts!

Honestly the first time I drank it, the sensation took me by surprise. Unimaginably smooth, along with a rich aroma and a taste locked in battle between sweet and bitter. Instant love.

Noire noire noire, tout petit collet brun.
Quels aromes ! du café bien torrefié, du chocolat amer.
Et une fois en bouche, whaou !!!
Onctueuse, tres forte accroche sur le café qui tapisse le palais pour rester longuement. Le final est amer comme il faut et on sent bien le taux d’alcool élevé.
Un regal tout simplement.

Tap. Not much more needs to be said about this beer! It’s just so good! One point off for being slightly too coffee heavy for my taste, but that’s just me being picky. Track it down now!
