Belle couleur foncée. Mousse beige, fine et persistente. Bonne longueur. Sucre presque nul. Acidité faible. Bonne amertume. Odeur de café et torréfaction. Goût chocolat noir, café. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sic1314 (3286) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
Poured deep, dark brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of lactose, milk chocolate, sweet malt and dark fruit. Medium body, flavour is like a milk stout with added berries.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle: Poured a clear dark black color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with dry bitter notes with vegetables notes. Taste is also dominated by dry roasted malt with some light chocolate notes but also some overcooked vegetables notes with light green pepper finish. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation. Definitely too light for style with some weird vedgy notes.

robinvboyer (3108) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Black pour, big beige head. Sweet, roasty aroma, notes of plums, and some stale hops. Wet paper and an odd soapy flavor are also quite prominent. The hops come through in the finish but are very subtle. Meh, nothing special.

cargo150 (580) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2014
Couleur noir avec un col mousseux beige qui se dissipe rapidement. Nez de grain grillé et un peu de chocolat. En bouche grain grillé avec une pointe de café et un peu de chocolat sur une moyenne amertume. Une imperial stout vraiment classique rien d’extraordinaire mais ce bois bien!

Bouteille de noire 500ml à 7.4%. Arôme de café, grains rôtis et de caramel. En bouche goût de café et notes de sucre d’orge. Bien goûteuse et assez forte.

ametras (403) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a big foamy brown head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, alcohol and peppermint. Taste is fruity and roasty with minty notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth. Warm, bitter and roasty finish.

Eructoblaster (3022) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. POurs an opaque black body with a good, lasting beige creamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and chocolate hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its robust, well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries roasted cereals, coffeeish, chocolate, and subtle plummy notes. Ends with a long, strong bitter/roasty finish. Very enjoyable.

probstblueribbon (2918) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
500 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with a modest mocha head. Aroma: Bright and kinda boozy, some dark-roasted malt notes, a little grape juice, a bit of coffee and dark chocolate, all overshadowed by this bright/boozy, almost menthol-like cooling thing...strange. Palate: Medium+ body, fine, moderate, slightly prickly effervescence. Flav.: Some roasted malt notes, a bit of chocolate and coffee, more of that ethereal bright/boozy/cooling note/sensation, a bit more like an Impy in flavour; dry with decent bitterness and a slightly alcoholic, cooling, not quite right kinda finish.

Not as expected. Not entirely successful for me.

2011 bottle. pours very dark brown with a decent light beige head, retention and lacing. roasted peppermint, perfumey citrusy-lightly piney hops, light coconut and dark chocolate, spices, hint of acidity - from big roasted grains, awkward fruitiness, slightly ashy. average carbonation, light body - feels weak although it’s half-forgiveable, abv-wise, decent grassy-peppery finish. ok.
