3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big soapy head floats atop a pitch black brew, quite good looking. Nose is restrained roasted grains and... that is about it. Mouthfeel is too thin and watery for an oatmeal stout but it still feels a little silky. Quite dry, I can taste roasted malt and nothing else. It is round but roastiness covers everything I think. It is good but not extraordinary.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
660ml bottle. Brown with ruby edges, thin but lasting off-white head, light lacing. The aroma is roasty, some chocolate, light coffee. The flavour is lightly roasty, some light chocolate, slight sweetness, nutty. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet with a bit of roast. Not bad, thin but nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, earth, mushrooms, oatmeal and a very dry yeast quality. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong dry and nutty malt at first with a good blast of oatmeal and mushrooms, followed by some subdued sweetness and grain flavours, but this is bone dry. Aftertaste shows the oatmeal, nuts, earth and dry yeast with only a faint bit of complexity at the very end with some lactose coming through. Overall, a nice beer - very drying, but a good beer for the style. I sampled this 66 cL bottle purchased from the IGA Grocery Store at the Berri-UQAM Station on Sainte Catherine in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for CA$5,79 yesterday on 13-February-2016 sampled a day later in my hotel room here in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 15-February-2016.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (660 ml). Split 4-ways. Dark brown, almost black, with a small tan head leaving little lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts mostly, backed by dark chocolate, caramel/molasses, milky notes and nutty notes. Taste is more expressive and also more balance with the same flavors but the roasted malt toned down a bit and more place to dark chocolate and molasses. Sweetness level is rather low and there’s a mild bitterness. Medium body. medium carbonation. Silky mouthfeel. A good, flavorful and palateable stout. Delicate enough to be paired with a good meal, but flavorful enough to do well on his own.

cask. Dark black pour with small head. Lots of roast and coffee notes. Easy drinking creamy mouthfeel. Good, but a little bland/flat.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
660ml bottle from Halles St-Jean. Approximately one year old bottle. Aroma: loads of coffee, roasted malt and a bit of chocolate and raisin and maybe some shy red fruits. App: dark brown with red tint, little beige head concentrated all in the middle of the glass and of course leaving lacing. Taste and palate: medium to full body, a bit creamy, medium sweetness, light dry bitter finish. Overall: pretty good. Maybe aging it helped refine it. Kinda sweet but not too much. At least for now.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dégustée sur la terrasse du Vices & Versa en compagnie de Ju-Lo. Bière foncée non noire, très bien filtrée et translucide, n’affichant qu’un mince anneau de grosses bulles en surface. L’ensemble de cette bière est caractérisé par une importante torréfaction. Des flocons d’avoine légèrement farineux à saveur de gruau comblent mon palais alors que le reste n’est que malts grillés et torréfiés. Une belle amertume se manifeste également en mi palais. Celle-ci n’est cependant pas une amertume attribuable aux houblons mais plutôt à cette longue torréfaction plutôt amère et sèche. Texture mince et assez effervescente, cette bière manque un peu de corps mais pas de saveur!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at le projet. Jet black pour with frothy, creamy tan head. Aroma is very coffee forward, tons of coffee, oatmeal, roasted grain, toasty, light anise / molasses. Taste is quite bitter, roasty but also very hoppy, nice thick coffee and molasses flavor. Palate is nice and chewy, light carbonation. A nice satisfying stout that doesn’t destroy the abv scale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a clear black color stout with a nice large brown foamy head with great retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolate notes with light roasted malt notes is quite pleasant. Taste is a nice mix between some black chocolate notes with some light roasted grain notes with some residual sugar notes that are still noticeable. Well brewed for the style and very nice level of drinkability.

Arômes de chocolat, café noir et léger côté grillé. En bouche, on goûte beaucoup l’avoine ainsi que le chocolat. Petite touche de houblon et un côté lactose. Très légère, corps mince.

Pour is black and surprisingly thin, with a big khaki cap that sticks around and leaves some nice lacing. Nose is chocolate, faint fruit and caramel, a bit of coffee. Coffee comes out more in the taste. Weirdly it’s both creamy and watery, kind of like an oatmeal stout-light. Finish is very mildly bitter, with a bit of lingering coffee. Goes down easy, but kind of plain Jane.
