MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2005
The Lure:
Sweet ground coffee beans topple roastiness and fruity esters. Soy sauce protrudes once in a while, everything is faint and tame.

The Festivities:
A frail body manages to lend coffee beans and milky sweetness. Feeble roasty bitterness is lifted in the back, alongside mineral notes. Not bad, but not good either.

An empty room.

Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2005
Decent dark robe, but really not much head retention, and lacked the slickness that I enjoy in this style.
Smoky, definately plenty of roasted malt in the nose, nevertheless it also had an oxidized "wet penny" smell.
The body on this Beer reminds me more of a Schwartzbier (sp?) than a stout. Yeah, roasted malt, but way too light, and the oxidization made it taste like licking a spoon, especially through the bottom half of my sample.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2005
660mL, 5% ABV: Deep charcoal hued, at first raising a nice light brown head. It doesn’t lace and completely disappears after minutes though. It leaves us with smelling as the only option. Very light overall profile. Chocolate, roastiness on a oily olive tray. Juicy palate with grape and blackberries undertones, tobacco and coffeeish acidic and roasty flavors quickly overcome as it dries. Light bodied, fair carbonation. Leaves a synthetic roastiness feel lingering. I still don’t dig sourish stouts. A bit dull.

Lubiere (11148) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2004
Deep black ale with a light chocolate malt aroma. Decent chocolate malt with a rather weak body. Still , a decent porter (dont think this is a stout).

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2004
Black color with brown hues, thin head. Decent coffee aroma. Decent coffee flavor with a small bitter finish that leaves the mouth dry. Light to medium body. Lacks body and character.
