j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 9, 2009
On tap at L’Amere a Boire. Pours a jet black with a creamy mocha head. Caramel, roast, and chocolate on the nose. Plum, chocolate, pear, and a little sweetness. Finishes with a sweet light bitterness, akin to a good chocolate milkshake, with a bit of alcohol coming through at the end as well.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Tap at the Brewpub: (Nitro) Pours near black with a thick/dense khaki colored head. Nice smooth roasted coffee aroma- creamy body. The flavor encompasses dark chocolate and burnt fruits underneath. There’s a touch of licorice as well. The roast in the finish is reminiscent of quality coffee. A solid Imperial Stout.

Noir opaque avec un beau collet mousseux. Goût de café et d’alcool avec une bonne amertume en finale.

WOW! Hands-down the smoothest, creamiest, slightly sweet choco/java stout I have ever tasted. The menu did not mention cream/milk, but I suspect this brew has some in it. Initial tap has bubbles dispersed throughout, settling to a thick creamy head of about 1/2" within a minute. Settles into a constant 1/4" head that just hangs in there, even when you only have a 1/4" of beer in the botton of the glass. Beer is a nice opaque black/brown - looks almost as good as it tastes. No bottles or growlers for take-home, so I had a second pint. Will have more any (every) time I return to Montreal.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUN 13, 2008
1/15/08 notes: kinna like a subdued version of Brooklyn’s chocolate stout, minus the grainyness. Some espresso, some chocolate, some nuts and caramel. All in all, flavor leans towards sweet, until the finish. Overall, pretty solid stuff, nothing too novel, but I would definitely drink it again. Pretty damn accessible for a Impy Stout.

GregClow (2847) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. Deep almost-black with a tan head. Big, roasty aroma of sweet malt, chocolate, and charred grains. Smooth body. Flavour - wow! - sweet and roasty with notes of coffee, chocolate and burnt caramel. Hides that 7.5% so well, it’s frightening. I could drink a lot of this. And then I would fall down. But I would be happy!

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2008
Draught at L’Amère à Boire. Pours black with an average size lasting creamy light-brown head -- looks wonderful. Mild aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, light green hops, molasses and some sweetness. Flavour, which is sooo easy to drink, of roasted malt, fruit, chocolate, coffee and and average bitter finish. Gets a little sweeter as it warms. Alcohol’s totally hidden. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Fantastic stuff, very well done!

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2007
On Tap @ the Brewpub shared with Glougoburp. Pours black with a 1 finger light brown head. Nice albeit light malty roasty nose. Taste is sweet, and light for an impy, very drinkable, not thin, sweet.

[507-20070811] Tap @ L’Amère à Boire (Montréal, QC). Nutty dark malt aroma with medium alcohol. Black brown body with a long-lasting creamy light tan head. Chocolate flavour is mostly bitter coffee malt. Full body. Very nice feel.
