dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours opaque brown with a long lasting medium brown head. Aroma is that of freshly cracked and mashed barley on brew day; very clean wort aroma with virtually no evident fermentation profile. Taste is similar to aroma with with a flash or earthy green hops notes as well as hints of chocolate malt and coffee. Body is medium, active carbonation, long clean roasted barley finish. Overall, this is a beer that only a brewer can appreciate in its full spectrum of aromas and flavors. It truly retains the fresh bready aromas of the mash and boil of a fresh brew. I almost think they used a lager yeast for this.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Tap at Local Option. Dark black pour, off white head that laces a little bit. Aroma of fresh brewed coffee. Flavor is vanilla coffee ice cream bit with more roast than sweetness. Medium full palate. A good, good beer.

Eructoblaster (3889) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle - 750ml. Opaque black body with low carbonation and a thin beige creamy head. Strong, complex malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate and roasty hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Robust, well balanced hoppy taste with malty, roasted coffee, plummy, and brown sugar notes. Ends with a long, sharp hoppy/roasty finish. Very well done!

SlovakSniper (5182) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
(Un verre au Saint-Bock) Une solide tête crémeuse qui flotte sur une robe profondément brune, à la limite d’être noire. Un nez de grains rôtis. Une touche de mélasse et de chocolat. Des houblons verts plus ou moins intenses. Des saveurs très intéressantes de grains foncés et chocolatés. Des houblons beaucoup plus vigoureux : une touche quasi mentholée. Une nuée de réglisse. Un alcool bien parfumé. Une bouche de moyenne dimension avec un pétillement très doux. Une texture soyeuse. Une finale forte en amertume de torréfaction. Très bon stout qui mériterait de se retrouver en bouteille.

mansquito (5473) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Farmhouse, Burlington VT 12oz tap ($8.50): Pours a black color with a nice creamy brown head. Aroma is of coffee, chocolate, toffee, booziness, and some other grand stuff. Taste is in the same element. Kind of sweet, but still very manageable. Chocolate and coffee, not quite espresso, but still cool. Good beer and could be either chuggable or sippable, depending on your mood. At this price, I prefer the latter.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
On tap at Trou du diable brewpub. A dark, opaque ale with brownish, almost purple reflects. Light beige head with little retention. Mostly tastes of coffee, maybe a bit of very dark chocolate. Bitterness dominates. A strong cofee finish, with lingering coffee bitterness. Not as thick as I would’ve expected in mouth, has subtle, pleasant notes of alcohol considering its alcohol contents.

Cask. Rich cocoa with a lot of soft sweetness. Chewy but not cloying. Dark appearance with a thin brown head. Tasty stuff.

UM02 (354) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2011
On tap at St-Bock. Deep roasted malt taste with a touch of caramel. A bit smoky and with some hop bitterness. Excellent stout.
