Pitch Black beer with great chocolate taste. You cannot feel or smell the alcohol. Very Very good.

This is a great one. Pours a jet black with a creamy off white head of small bubbles. I think it was a nitro it was a nitro or not, but I never saw a rise,{I was sitting in back,, far from the bar} and carbonation was almost unpresent. I found the mothfeel to be a little to oily, and a little milky. Would probably be nicer on cask. Nose was mostly of dark roast coffie, with some presence of sweet dark chocolate and a little bitter dance. Taste is smokey and roasted, with a little burnt chocolate and a solid presence of espresso. Undertones are sweet cream, burnt almond, sweet grass, floral hops, bitter greens, and just a splash of a taste that makes me think "Chedar" Aftertaste is dry coffie, with a light milk chocolate presence, with a roastyness that lingers on the palat for quite a while. Very very good. Always a nice stout to end the evening with, thus guaronteeing a long silly walk to the night bus. Cheers.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2013 Incroyablement onctueuse, à la manière stout à l’avoine St-Ambroise mais avec un profil de saveurs d’un autre registre totalement, noix de coco, cassonade, chocolat. La version bière d’un café au lait. Adéquate amertume, facile à boire.

Deep black in colour. Flavour of dark chocolate, coffee, rich, creamy, smooth. Finishes with a nice long bitterness. Decadent.

How can an Imperial Stout make you feel like you’re the Russian tsar? Well the Amère à Boire’s does it! First, its darkness compares itself to other Imperial Stouts. Nonetheless, you’re still impressed by how a beer can be so dark. The smell lets you think about harvest. Every ingredient is massively reprsented. You just wish to taste it and that’s what you do. Yep! as tasty as it is smelly. Less bitter than the Dieu du Ciel which is excellent (for me), puts its drink even more appreciable. The strong palate leaves you a lasting souvenir from the brewery you just left. Better drink it last if you predict drinking more than one.

Really dark brown with ruby hints, nice mocha head. Chocolate, coffee and molasses is what you get. Strange, I also picked up some green olive notes.

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!!!

on tap at the brewpub, the last of 8 beers sampled in this session, and definitely saved the best for last. the pour was solid black and viscous looking. the head was thick, tan, and creamy, almost like it should have been on a nitro beer. a huge aroma of coffee and roasts comes out of the glass. as you drink it, it really does have a viscosity, a chewy mouthfeel that echos the robust body. the taste is strong with coffee, tailing away into sweet chocolates, and a slightly burnt flavor. the tail end was slightly bitter, as expected, but balanced nicely by the burnt tones. if peche mortel hadn’t blown my mind the night before i had this, it would easily have been the best beer i had from the 3 brewpubs i visited.

On cask. A most excellent and well balanced impy stout. The body was black with a light brown colored head. The aroma was chocoalte with coffee and some anise. Very rich. The taste was light sweet coffee with some chocolate. There were also hints of anise with some mild oranges. A very smooth mouthfeel. This is a winner.
