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!

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.

larsga (7307) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2007
Biggish grayish beige creamy head. Nearly opaque dark brown body. Sweetish perfumed licorice aroma with apple notes. Sweet stale licorice and apple taste, giving way to a gorgeously hopped dry, grassy, herbal licorice aftertaste. Burnt vanilla and coffee notes linger, as well as dry cocoa. Smooth mild and drinkable. Great! (0.321l draft.)

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2007
[draught] Hoppy, molasses and roasted malt aroma. Flavors are roasty, with subtle cocoa and coffee flavors blending well. Plum and fruit flavors blend with a slight anise character towards the finish. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2008 On Tap at Brewpub. Well........looks exactly like Guinness with the thick creamy head. aroma is kinda sour, and roasty. MOuthfeel is thin, and again that sourness lingers, and it’s quite dry. Not my cup of tea.

Tap on location. Very dry, perfectly balanced stout. Roastiness present with good chocolate notes, plum. Slightly vegetal. Palate/thickness is as expected for 7.5%, which is not too thick, but it does a good job avoiding potential thinness and making a full, clean mouthfeel. Very good stuff.

probstblueribbon (3722) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2006
5 oz. sampler at the brewpub. App.: very deep brown-black, reminants of a tight mocha head. Aroma: really nice dark chocolate with a bit of coffee behind it. Palate: med.-full body, creamy and almost no carbonation. Flav.: raisins and dried fruits, lots of chocolate (both dark and milk), somewhat woody. Pleasant dark-roast coffee bitterness to finish, a touch of sweetness and acidity, alcohol is well-hidden. This is a solid product, thankfully. I was starting to worry about this place...

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2006
Draught. At L’Amère à Boire. Opaque ruby-black, large lasting creamy-smooth light brown head, even nice lacing. Roasty aroma - mild molasses, tart fruit, coffee & hops. Taste - this is a solid impy stout, just like the aroma, roast, fruity, hops, coffee, chocolate, some alcohol, very nicely balanced hop / roast malt finish. Nice chewy body, light carbonation, alcoholic, sticky and mildly acidic mouthfeel, long finish to it. Very good imperial stout, oh yes.
