hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2006 Draft. Deep dark color, with tan head. Dark chocolat aroma. This beer is creamy, tasty, taste of coffee and roasted malt, sweet, easy to drink. De couleur noir foncé avec un collet brun. Odeur de chocolat noire. Au goût, elle est onctueuse, crémeuse, vraiment invitante, gout de café et de malt grillé, elle est douce pour une stout, facile a boire.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 Draft... This beer rocks!... The lighting is not great inside this brew pub, but this beer is pitch black as far as I can tell. Very creamy, well-tanned head with excellent retention. The nose is of dark chocolate, espresso and red wine with touches of licorice and wood. For such a heavy beer, the flavor is very well-balanced and nicely bittered. Lots of burnt, charred notes in the flavor, but not overwhelmingingly scorched. Chocolate notes. Full-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. Medium-length, moderately bitter, roasty finish. Very nice!

SimonB (66) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - NOV 19, 2004
Small light brown fully diminishing head (the tasting glass stayed for a while on the table, see notes at the end). Black color. Roasted, chocolate, port, a bit smoked and alcoholic aroma. Quite some bitterness as both initial and final flavor, short to average lasting. Medium to full body, dry yet a bit syrupy? Soft to lively carbonation. Tasted on tap at the brewpub in a small tasting glass, 10 (last) of 10 beer in this session (18 november 2004).

Radek Kliber (6397) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 17, 2004
Very nice presenting brew, dark brown with decent head. Dry plums, acidic aroma. Bitter, clean, dry plums carried over from aroma to flavour. Not bad.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2004
Bitter roasted coffee aroma, dark brown, small toffee head. flavours of coffee, chocolate and treacle. Rather light bodied given the style, some bitterness. Ordinary.

Gorbalev (2917) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 Pitch black pour, huge creamy tan head. Wonderful, light hop, chocolaty aroma. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Just a subtle alcohol presence and hop kick for the style, but the whole thing is balanced perfectly - lots of chocolate as well. And excellent beer, my favourite from my brief trip to Montreal. I enjoyed the brewpub itself as well. Re-rate. Went back to Montreal, had this again. While it was still good, it was not a 4.8 as my original experience rated (ambiance playing a big factor both times). It was still very flavouful but it seemed thinner this time. And the aroma was extremely muted and maybe just a tad stale. Still a must try when in Montreal, but just not at the great heights I originally thought.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2004
black, creamy beige head. toffee, mocha, malted milk, raisin/fig, bitter cocoa aroma. flavour starts sweet and chocolatey, gets roasty in the middle and finishes with nice mix of sweetened coffee, booze and roast.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2004
Appealing, creamy, really creamy head. Aroma of alcohol, sugar and roasted barley. Amazing coffee and roasty flavors with some bitterness, maybe some alcohol too. Very creamy mouthfeel. The best beer of this pub.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2005 Original Rating 5/10/2004 - 6-5-8-5-17=4.1): Subdued aromas of coffee and chocolate - as advertised but quite enticing. Opaque brown, almost black with dense brown head that lasts forever and you just know that’s going to coat the glass. Coffee, chocolate, a hint of alcohol, mild fruitiness with enough roasty bitterness to keep it interesting. Full-bodied, creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Liquid velvet. On tap at the brewpub.
Re-sampled (16-Mar-05 - 7-4-7-4-15=3.7): Flavours and aromas much as above though I found the aroma to be a touch more distinctive and the flavour and mouthfeel to be a bit more sweet and cloying than I remember from last year’s sampling. On tap at the brewpub.

Very creamy and soft body and head. Color is deep black. There is coffee and a bit of sweet in there. There is almost vanilla. Very complex and pleasurable to drink.
