VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours a deep black with a long-lasting beige head. Smells like coffee grains and chocolate. Taste is burnt toast, dry coffee, ash and dark chocolate. Finish is dark chocolate and coffee bitterness, with a touch of wood (?). Body is thick, mouthfeel is oily. Excellent stout.

AlainG (1825) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2012
Bière noire opaque coiffée d’une mousse d’écume laissant une dentelle régulière aux parois du verre. Des arômes forts de café filtre ayant resté trop longtemps sur l’élément chauffant, des odeurs poussiéreuses s’accrochent au passage, alors que des effluves poivrées s’immiscent au travers tout ça pour nous lasser sur une note positive. Ça goûte pratiquement la même chose que les senteurs. Une touche aigre picotte la langue. Un arrière-goût aigre semble occuper l’arrière de la bouche. Pas mon type. J’aime les stouts, j’aime le café, mais pas ensemble, du moins pas de cette façon. (256-070612)

Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Draft: Poured a black color stout with a small dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coffee is dominant but not overly dry with some roasted malt notes. Taste is a great mix between some dry roasted malt with some good notes of coffee with light black chocolate notes. Body is full with good carbonation. Well brewed with great balance to avoid too much dryness.

This one totally lacks balance. Coffee is way too overwhelming. Plus, it is very bad coffee, so... Mnaque total d’équlibre ici. On dirait davantage un (mauvais) café à la bière qu’une bière au café. À éviter...

Minderbinder (3204) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle 500 ml [2010] 171/1000 Pours black, with very low head. Aroma is of bad coffee. Taste is of bad coffee. Weak, watery stuff. Bottle 500 ml [2011] 494/2000 Same as the other one. Very weak. Deceiving.

Bottle 500 ml [2010] 171/1000 AND Bottle 500 ml [2011] 494/2000. Apperance: Pours dark brown with a medium beige head, quickly diminishing. Aroma: Coffee and roasted malt, but not a nice coffee aroma. Taste: Watery and coffee. No complexity and not well balanced. Overall: It’s like drinking a cold coffee, and a bad one. Used to much better beers from the brewer (see Mackroken and Mackroken Grande Réserve).

rodenbach99 (4068) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2011
Bouteille de 500ml. Numéro 1535/2000. Bière brune foncée presque noire avec une mousse brune qui n’est pas durable. Le nez est effrayant, de la cendre, vieux cendrier, cigarette, touche de chocolat, vielle maison de fumeurs, ce n’est pas invitant. En bouche c’est quelque peu mieux avec du café, du chocolat. Ordinaire à mauvais.

Black beer with almost no head. Strong roasty and coffee aromas. Sweet taste.
