Bottle. Pitch black with a medium mocha head with average retention. Aroma is iced cappucino, a hint of herbal hops and tobacco. Flavor is roasted grains, cold coffee, tobacco, and a hint of herbs. Medium body. This beer was much better when I sampled it on tap.

lesifflebiere (1289) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2013
Stout classique, ayant de puissantes saveurs de chocolat et de café au lait, avec de petites touches de vanille et de boisé. Très solide dans le genre, elle ne révolutionne rien mais cela fait d’elle une représentante typique des stout québécois de base.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
Bouteille 500ml. Explosive à l’ouverture. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de café, de chocolat noir, de malt rôti, léger de houblon herbeux avec des traces de caramel et de fruits. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement crémeuse. Goût de chocolat noir amer avec de faibles notes de chocolat au lait (faibles notes lactiques) et accompagné de traces fruitées (contamination?) et de vanille dès l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt rôti et quelques notes de pain grillé puis à mesure que l’on progresse vers la finale, un amertume de houblon herbeux et un goût de grains de café s’installent pour clore la gorgée. Post-goût long, moyennement amer de rôti, moyen de chocolat noir, de café et de houblon herbeux.

probstblueribbon (2942) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
500 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with a nice mocha foam. Aroma: Some nice, friendly chocolate, coffee and vanilla notes, some solvent (I think), slightly ashen and alcoholic, somewhat fruity (grapey), a little evergreen??, fairly sweet, rich and inviting. Palate: Medium-full body, full, fine, elegant effervescence. Flav.: There is a nice dose of chocolate, light black coffee, faint vanilla, with sort of an overriding...solvent note?, a touch ashen, a little fruity, maybe the solvent is more alcohol?, generally nice with some odd and hard-to-describe characteristics; dry with pretty good bitterness and a fairly long, solventy/alcoholic finish with some roasted malt character.

Not entirely successful, but it is still fairly drinkable.

Eructoblaster (3054) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle - 500ml. Pours an opaque black body with a thin beige frothy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with roasted cereals and chocolate hints. Its robust taste carries coffeeish, brown sugar, and roasted cereals notes. Ends with a decent bitter/roasty finish. Enjoyable Stout.
