3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 In short: A commercial black cake in a pint.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Black body topped by a medium persistent tan head
In long: Timid slightly roasted nose. Fluffy/foamy body. Taste of roasted dark malts, black chocolate, some lactic notes, light coffe hints. More precisely this beer really tastes like a generic black cake. Everything from the taste, mouthfeel and finish reminded me of a *DANY* Dunkin Heinz black cake. Nothing special about it but this is a reliable beer and a regular of the Cheval Blanc lineup and as such this beer has become my late-night fallback choice. This beer and my ex-girlfriend phone number.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pint @ pub. Pours very dark with a nice tan head. The aroma was pretty neutral, malt on the nose with some roastyness coming through. The taste was malty and chocolate, tasty. Over all this is a nice stout but not stellar.

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.

On tap at Le Cheval Blanc, pours a dark amber brown with a small light brown head. Aroma of light caramel malts and dry fruits - doesn’t smell like a stout. Flavour of subtle dark fruits and caramel malts, some very light roasted malt. Very light-bodied for a stout. Decent flavours but the body doesn’t strike me as a stout. Weak, but drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad little stout. Not very aggressive on the roasted malt side, but most of the Montreal beers seemed a bit on the subdued side(not very hoppy and moderate malt.) Enjoyable though and only $3 a glass.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Huge roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate and coffee. Dark black, opaque body with thick brown head that lasts (nitro). Touch of licorice, bitter chocolate, coffee grounds. in the flavour. Fairly lactic. Lasting roastiness. Creamy smooth mouthfeel but watery thin body. On tap at the brewpub. Sampled with Lubiere.
