Radek Kliber (6324) - 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.

Bitter roasted coffee aroma, dark brown, small toffee head. flavours of coffee, chocolate and treacle. Rather light bodied given the style, some bitterness. Ordinary.

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.

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.

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.

Eructoblaster (2853) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2004
Perfect creamy brownish head on a dense black body. Roasted aroma. Taste (roasted coffee) is rich and very balanced. Creamy texture. Long bitter final. A true dessert. Wonderful!!!

Black, medium beige head. The aroma is sweet, strawberries, some alcohol. Flavour is nicely balanced, sweet, not overly bitter, some smokey flavours. Sticky palate, rather full-bodied. Nice. Draught.
