mcberko (6034) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2014
750mL bottle, sent from Marheb (thanks a lot, Martin), pours black with a medium tan head. Nose is very milky, with lactose, bourbon, vanilla and some sweetness. Flavour is similar, with bourbon, vanilla, lactose, and sweet cocoa. Full-bodied, with light bourbon accentuating the mouthfeel. Very full and decadent. Great stuff.

Bouteille de 750 ml achetée chez Veux-tu une Bière? (Montréal, QC). Arôme: Odeur de chocolat noir et de bourbon. Apparence: La couleur est noire opaque avec une faible densité de bulle.

Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement chocolaté. (Rating #5201)

Boutip (4654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolates notes with light dry coffee notes with some light vanilla and bourbon notes. Taste is also dominated by nice black chocolate notes with limited bitterness and some light vanilla and bourbon notes with a dry finish with notes of roasted malt and coffee. Body is above average with nice creamy texture and no apparent alcohol. Solid rendition of the style with good balance between the different flavours. Bourbon notes could have been a bit more pronounced but very enjoyable nonetheless.

czar (4153) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2013
pours very dark brown almost black with a very nice beige head, good retention and lacing. bitter but also milk chocolate - plenty of cocoa beans in fact, tobacco, wood, bourbon hints, resin and soft tannins. some sweetness - chewy dark roasted chocolate malts. average to moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, assertive grassy-resinous finish - nice mouthfeel. a good ba-ris - never overdone, barrel-wise.

solidfunk (3673) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 3, 2013
This one is a total bourbon bomb. Pours pitch black withmocha head and great lacing. Tough to detect the beers qualities aside from the barrel but i cam sense some booze, sweet malt. Finishes sweet with some bitter dark chocolate. Tap at Gainsbourg.

rodenbach99 (3096) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Bouteille de 750ml capsule métallique. Liquide brun foncée avec une mousse brune durable. Un nez fort agréable de café et de whiskey. L’alcool est bien dissimulé. La bouche a une texture incroyable, c’est presque sirupeux. Les saveurs de chocolat, de torréfaction fonctionnent à merveille. Le baril apporte une couche de saveur supplémentaire. La finale est très amère. Une leçon pour les brasseurs qui abusent de la barrique.

Ferris (3059) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle - Roasted malts, coffee and some mild bourbon sweetness. Jet black with a nice brown head. Chocolate and roast notes, bourbon and vanilla sweetness. Great balance and perfect body. Superb.

SlovakSniper (3046) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2013
Une robe bien noire et son col respectable. Un nez de fin bourbon, de chocolat et de caramel avec une pointe de vanille et de noix de coco. Un goût qui respire les choses maltées rondement exécutées. Un traitement intelligent de la barrique ou une base impériale très forte. De belles flaveurs de noix de coco qui se mélangent à des notes de torréfaction. Une bonne prestance en bouche. Un corps pleinement assumé. Une texture soyeuse et une effervescence appropriée. Une finale légèrement boisée, florale et caramélisée par le bourbon et son tonneau. Assurément un exemple à suivre dans le domaine plus ou moins intéressant du vieillissement en fût.

Eructoblaster (2957) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Pours an opaque black body with a good beige foamy head. Wonderful, complex malty/hoppy aroma with bourbon, woody, cocoa, and subtle roasty hints. Its robust taste carries vineous, oaky, bourbon, and roasted coffee notes. Ends with a long, strong, warming bittersweet finish. Very well done!
