bunget (441) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
341ml bottle. A very dark brown, almost black body, small chocolate head with phenomenal retention. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, condensed milk, toffee, a bit woodsy and leathery. Taste of wood charcoal, dark chocolate, old coffee, caramel, woodsy and a touch of herbal hops towards the end. A very fine and classy stout.

cargo150 (420) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
Couleur Noir avec quelque reflet brun, col peu mousseux mais résistant beige. Nez de malt grillé avec un peu de café et de chocolat. En bouche c’est très rond, café,chocolat malt grillé ce n’est pas trop sucré en bouche et c’est très crémeux. Très surprenant comme bière, elle est excellente!

Bretteux (160) - Ste-Julie, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Un col beige foncé qui à des reflets rougeâtres,sa couleur est bien noire.Au nez, des odeurs de rôtis,de choco mi-sucré avec une pointe de framboise.Au goût , c’est assez liquide,une certaine douceur est présente l’instant d’une seconde suivi par le rôtis qui domine,signe et persiste!Son 7.9% est assez bien agencé à la mixture.Pour conclure , une impériale stout que je qualifie de correct.

Countbeer (4065) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle: Thanks Secret Sinterklaas: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium to smaller brown foamy head on top of a black colored beer. Aromas of coffee, barley malt roast, some oatmeal, some wood toast, bay leaf/liquorice ish tones, some coffee roast, some leave roast an bay leaf tones. Flavours of oatmeal, bitters, roast, coffee, light cacoa and liquorice ish tones, spices, coffee roast, malt roast, some bay leaf, tar, espresso, toffee (but less sweet), somewhat sticky with roast, bitters, coffee and liquorice... Mostly... Aftertaste is roast, coffee, bitters, malt and wood roast, some hay and coffee roast, light spicy and some espresso/coffee bean tints. Low carbo, creamy close to silky mouthfeel, full bodied and a creamy texture. Not bad but some of the flavours are a bit out of tune, let it breath and becomes a lot better! A tasty beer!

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Winter Warmer décembre 2013 - Bière noire, opaque et coiffée d’un épais col velouté laissant au verre une large dentelle. Des arômes de chocolat, de pain brûlé. Bien amère avec un peu de sucres résiduels. Elle est crémeuse, de corps robuste, très effervescente et se termine sur une longue finale légèrement amère et très aromatique.
