RickTheRick (929) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
Une mousse brune à priori explosive se sauve toutefois très rapidement d’une bière noire et opaque. Les arômes dominants sont surtout le chocolat et le café, mais je détecte également des notes boisées et un peu de coconut. Une vague alcoolisée enveloppe les saveurs de chocolat et de noisettes dans une couverture onctueuse, le tout se terminant dans une finale tannique et boisée.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Green wood, vanilla and milk chocolate are whipped into a smooth dessert of an Imperial Stout, as roasted bitterness seals every sip.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the brown-edged black.
-Alcohol warmth appears in the finish.
-The mouthfeel is rich but not cloying.
-Wooden barrel appears a tad raw in the end.

Bottle.
