jgb9348 (5686) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Pitch black coloured body with a ridiculously large, way too high, eleven centimetre tall (to the top of the glass and beyond) tan head - either this was old or it had too much sediment in it. Aroma of yeast (perhaps thats the answer), grain, oatmeal, lactose and a bit of cream noticeable. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong meaty flavour with some grain, beef, mushrooms, yeast and soy sauce all noticeable along with some caramel, earth, grain, oatmeal and some lighter yeast and chocolate notes. Aftertaste shows some bitterness from the roasted malt, a bit of lactose and cream and some funkier earth and metallic flavours as well. Overall, a decent stout with some good notes, but the head was way too high and the pungency a bit too strong, especially in a town with some really good full-bodied beers to beat the cold temperatures. I sampled this 50 cL ’montreal-styled’ bottle purchased from Depanneur Paul (Ave des Pins @ Saint Laurent) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for CA$4,99 on 17-September-2016, sampled in my hotel room here in Montreal a day later on 18-September-2016.

Adamsville (214) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
Stout de qualité présentant des arômes de chocolat, de café et de malt rôti avec un corps moyen et une effervescence adéquate. Pas si sucrée que ça, je n’aurais pas qualifié cette bière de Sweet Stout. Une des bonnes stouts régulières québécoises à mon goût.

500ml bottle from IGA. Thanks Guillaume for buying. Aroma: loads of sweet chocolate, coffee and roasted malt also some medicinal notes. App: dark brown with huge moka head, great retention and thick lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, smooth, medium carbonation, medium sweetness, light long bitter finish. Overall: quite good. Too sweet but really enjoyed it anyway.

Whatup14 (1616) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2015
Bouteille 500ml. Couleur noire opaque, mousse moka tenace. Arôme de malt torréfié, café, chocolat. Goût de malt torréfié, café, légère acidité. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen-faible.

Franckg (1186) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Arômes de malt torréfié, café, chocolat et bois. En bouche, plutôt chocolaté, bien boisé. La finale nous présente des saveurs de grains de café et un peu citronnées qui s’étirent longuement sur le palais. Texture onctueuse, corps moyennement rond et faible effervescence. Une stout sans origonalité mais au-dessus de la moyenne.

Miarew (5) - - FEB 21, 2015 does not count
Belle texture, mousse crème, nez de grain frais, céréales. En bouche, le grain encore, comme de la moulé, du malt cru. L’amertume du houblon est la mais se marie mal avec le grain dominant. Bien conçu mais je ne rachèterai pas.

Beardbeerman (339) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
500ml bottle poured in a snifter around 10 degrees. Pours an opaque black robe topped by a finger and a half of porous moka head. Retention is moderate and lacing is not really present eventhough the brew is warm. Of course no carbs are spotted due to the opacity of the beer, but the vivid head lets you guess they are present. The nose is subtle with burnt and nutty notes and some hops. The taste is light with the barley coming in smooth with diluted burnt toast and a certain nuttiness. The good aspect of the beer is actually the way the hops roll on the back of the palate and return to the sides of the tongue, making the finish quite enjoyable. A fair stout with a good palate but lacking robustness in the flavour profile. Cheers!

50 cl bottle. @ Timo A. Bottled on 04.06.2014. BBE 06/2015.
Pours dark red color with a large beige head. Lots and lots of coffee on the nose, cocoa, caramel and some bread. Malty bready flavor, very dry, nutty, coffee too, dark fruits and ash. Medium carbonation. Very refined and tasty.

HippyHop (603) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Pours like a stout, with a small, quick-fading tan cap and a bit of lacing. Nose is....like a stout. Chocolate/coffee/roasted grain, but all three are somewhat faint. I almost get more molasses and liquorice out of the nose. Taste is definitely more interesting. Sweet caramel and molasses/burnt sugar, chocolate and coffee, some alcohol and a bit of astringency I can’t quite place . Finish is surprisingly dry - lingering bitter chocolate and coffee, but also some ambiguous hop bitterness that’s nice (this bottle is a year old). Mouthfeel is nice and creamy, but I found it a bit watery. Overall still decent stuff.
