Deep black color, with a nice creamy tan-colored head, with a shy black malt and chocolate aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a black malt roastiness character, coffee and mocha accents, with a roasted coffee beans note, leading towards a roastiness bitter finish.

Pours a black color with a medium creamy light brown head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Enjoyable flavor of chocolate, roasted malt with lactic notes. It’s a nitro stout, so the palate is very smooth and creamy but the body is a tad to light. A good easy to drink stout.

A beutiful black beer with bubbles that runs downwards as a real stout, top that off with a thick creamy brown head. The aroma is slightly roasted, while the flavor is lovely sweet and roasted, combined with notes of nuts. The mouthfeel is very smooth. I have a hard time really describing it - but it is a really nice stout.

Aroma is a bit weak. Looks great .. dark as it should be small creamy tan head. Leaving good some lace. Balance taste of coffee with a milky texture. Nice but better beers in Montreal.

on tap at the brewpub. pours a completely black body with a thick creamy tan head, reminiscent of a nitro beer. aroma is strong with coffee, but also held a bit of sweetness that i had a hard time specifying. the taste was excellent, a very solid blend of roasted coffee, malts and some sweet chocolates at the end. it had a great sweet coffee aftertaste, with almost no bitterness at all. my only complaint is that the body was a little light and watery. i am seeing that as a pattern in my ratings for this brewpub, maybe that is just their style, but i like a little more body, especially in a beer like this. still in all, an excellent beer.

From la maison (which merits them an extra point). Perfect darkness seemed to reign in this glass as no living soul could be seen through it. On this pitch black throne reigned a beautiful beige head which furiously menaced my nostrils with coffee and light vanilla aromas. Roasted coffee glided on top of a demonic creamy texture. Moderate chocolate completed the pact and bewitched me... until long after the glass was empty.
