On tap at the Vieux Montreal resto. Pours a deep brown with slight tan head. Nose of caramel, coffee, a bit of dark chocolate. Rich and roasty flavour-wise, tasted a bit burnt, but incredibly thin on the palate. Only ok.

Had it on tap in Montréal - was rather drinkable, did not object to it in any way, which was surprising after their rather bad IPA. Was a bit too sweet though, more like a sweetened Brown Ale than a Stout. Definitely lacked roastiness. Alright after a long and tiring day.

Draft. The aroma is very chocolatey, not a lot of smoke which is good. Some coffee. The taste is smooth, full of coffee and chocolate. Nice!
