COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toute en café et en chocolat, cette stout à l’avoine possède une texture crémeuse. Sa couleur noir opaque laisse prévoir un goût de torréfaction et l’amertume d’un bon café expresso.

My bottle [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus. Pours a very dark brown with a large lasting frothy beige head. Aroma of light roasted malt, some coffee, chocolate and light leafy hops. Flavour of lightly roasted malt, chocolate, some lactic notes and light leafy hops. Medium bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel. A pretty good Stout.

Thx to the slovak sniper for this brew! I took it right out of the yyyyyyyyyyyytttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt - cat on my keyboard again. right out of the styro shipper and into my glass. 1:30am - the best time to open a beer...... cats both on my lap and no room to put hte lap top.. I’ll hold it with one hand and type with one finger. Poured otu black with a large foamed up brown cap that rims out after a long sit and leaves nice lacing. a\romasof lactose, light chocolate, coffee filter, dirt, light avanilla and some odd food smell thqt I like - not a fan of lactose beers but this one I like due to a well balacned aroma. The taste is pretty good with a mix of storng and mild flavours that blend into one something something. Dryness, lactose at a level that makes sence and is not overwhelming. Faint spice and fainter bitterness of hops, dull chocolate that adds just enough to the overall taste as a whole, light coffee, maybe more bitterness but it’s so minor yet teasty, good fruits... this just gets better and better as I go. This stays very easy to drink throughout. THis just gets better and better and I’ll say that I am surprised as my first impression was pretty much average at best. This is one of the better mellow muted beers that I;ve had in a while. Everything is subdued and that works well. Richness led by medium chocolate and backed by a light coffee and backed further by fruit sdnd quite yet forward (does that make any sense? 00) hops. I probalbly said that 3 or 4 times already. Well carbonated with a bitterness that grown as it warmss. Not thin. This grew on me like a case of leprosy. Quebec makes fine beer. im wobblyh

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2011
500ml bottle shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Deep ruby-black, small but last lasting light brown creamy head. Nutty and dry aroma, mild alcohol, mild lactose, some coffee. Taste - same, a bit of chocolate, creamy --- smooth. Frothy, creamy, dry .... ah hell, I’m drunk, but this was pretty good.

lefossoyeur (489) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
Black with a generous creamy mocha head that fades away leaving a thin lace. Nice sweet coffee aromas, toasted bread with a hint of saltiness. Full body, lots of minerality (the water?), salty, creamy oat feeling with a lingering light roast finish. Nice stout.

TheJester (2038) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2011
500 mL bottle in trade from SlovakSniper. Merci, Pat! Almost black, with only some garnet hues getting through where the glass thins. The brown head fades quickly. Nice roast malt aroma suggests a black coffee with one sugar. A hint of fruit as well. The flavour is excellent, with a hint of spice distinguishing it from the crowd. Good body and carbonation. Nice beer.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, sample size. I enjoyed all of the beers I had at the brewpub, and this one iss no exception. It is a great stout with a nice complexitity and balance. Roasted malts and hops are mixed with coffee and chocolate, in a not too bitter, not too sweet beer. Fizzyness is kept one the low, so it goes down (too) easily).

DeanF (1746) - Nunavut, CANADA - JAN 6, 2011
Lots of burnt barley on the nose and little else. Jet black body with a very dark but thin head on top. Flavour is roasted barley, but not roasted well enough to translate into coffee or chocolate; it comes off as incomplete. Palate is slightly weak. It’s a drinkable stout that is just missing some critical elements.
