Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2007
Dark as night, it first had a perfectly pearly white head that was an amazing contrast in color. I had to ruin it all by swirling my glass around, which promptly turned the head into mocha.
Cocoa powder and freshly ground coffee, it smelled like inside those high-end coffee shops/dessert cafés.
Plenty of dark fruits (blackberries) gives it a good sweetness and licorice - not enough for me not to like it, I’m usually not a big fan but it worked. Moderate body and flavor tends to be more chocolate than coffee, which suits me just fine. Perfect amount of alcohol warms your throat without burning it. Another winner from a great brewpub.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2013
Pours a very dark brown, almost black with little beige head and no lacing. Aroma of light coffee, cocoa, roasted malts. Taste has some coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, a bit fruity, light smoke, Medium body and medium to low carbonation.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Sample. Dark brown color, big brown head. Strong malty chocolate aroma. Chocolate and roasted caramelised malts are dominant in the taste. Full andcreamy mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Not usually my style but like everyother beer at the brewpub, it went down smoothly!

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2008
Bouteille de 750 ml - Dégusté avec french tickler. Une biere de couleur noir avec un mince collet collant de couleur brun pale. Odeur de chocolat, cacao, café brulé, réglisse noir et un peu le fudge. Gout de chocolat, café, sucre, caramel, un épicé et alcohol.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (en fût) le 31 mai 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D13C3K420i). Bière noire opaque. Col mince beige foncé crémeux et persistant. Odeur de sirop de café. Très douce, très sucrée, assez amère en finale. Goût de café noir marqué. Pas trop sirupeuse malgré le sucre, se boit bien, pas trop lourde. Peut-être un peu trop légère et mince.

VincentL (278) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
AU mondial. Plus léger qu’une stout, assez carbonisé, torréfié, un sucre leger mais distinct.

tom_clift (44) - Carnegie, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2010
Keg. Toast and spicy aroma. Relatively light on body but big on very astringent chocolate malt. I didn’t enjoy this so much due to the high astringency, but I’d like to try it again based on all others’ high ratings.
