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.

12 oz. glass on tap at the brewpub. App.: very dark brown-black, barely a hint of red with a tight, creamy, light-tan head. Aroma: skunky coffee (French roast), a littel dark chocolate, cat pee (ammonia?) and not much else. Med.-full body, very low carbonation and slightly astringent. Flav.: black coffee and a bit of dark chocolate...close to the nose. Finishes a bit thin, slightly bitter with a black coffee aftertaste. Quite dry (hardly a sweet stout) and slightly tart. Lacks complexity, but quite drinkable.

. On tap at the brewpub. Pitch black, creamy big tan heads - looks about as it good as it can, I loved it. Nitro kills aroma - mild roast, but that’s it. Very dry, roast, oatmeal taste. Medium creamy body, but despite the nitro (or accentuated by it) it is too thin. Stays dry to the end. A very tasty session stout.

On tap @ Le Cheval Blanc (Montréal). Black with a creamy beige head (fully lasting) and good lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, nuts, English hops, mineral & earthy notes. Taste is slightly sweet with coffee, roasted malt, nuts, earthy/mineral notes and a light lactic presence (not disturbing - well integrated). Light body. Creamy mouthfeel. Very good Sweet Stout. The only "problem" is the body, it’s too light / not creaming enough or I don’t know what, but there’s something missing to make the beer more consistent.

I didn't find this stout to be all that sweet, really. But it was rather coffee-ish. It was more like a dry stout. Smooth and mild.

Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti, léger café et de chocolat noir avec des notes de houblon herbeux aux notes florales et quelques traces de chocolat au lait. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture crémeuse. Goût légèrement lactique de chocolat au lait avec de faibles traces de crème brûlées et de métal (azote) lors de l’entrée en bouche rapidement suivi d’un goût de malt rôti et un léger goût de chocolat noir puis en finale un moyen goût de café s’installe avec une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux petites notes florales. Post moyen-long, légèrement amer de rôti, léger de café avec des notes de chocolat noir et de houblon herbeux. (hiver 2005-06)

Dernière de quatre verres de dégustations. Très noir, goût de café et de mocha, pas si sucré, assé amère.

A nice sweet stout on tap at the brewpub in Montreal. Dark, roasty, offwhite head. nice sweetness to keep it in balance.

Draught. Deep dark brown with a small yellow/mocha head. The aroma has chocolate creaminess, coffee roast but generally more of the former. Soft creamy body that leans towards the thin side. Dry fruitiness and chocolate finish. Not bad.
