Keg. Molasses aroma. Lighter body than I was expecting. Dark roasty malt flavours along with something medicine-like. Quite drinkable. Higher alcohol hidden well.

THANK YOU! Draft glass @ Original Moeder. Black with a BIG mocha head. Nose is big umami & chocolate soaked in spirit, boozy mocha, mocha coated in spirit. Body is fizzy, interesting taste of huge coffee beans, mocha, chocolate coated in spirit, grains, vanilla,… low roast. Interesting beer, fizzy, coffee beans taste is huge, as well as sweet mocha chocolate soaked in strong spirit let us say rum. Rich, intriguing, a bit weird & maybe a touch too fizzy. At the end of the day, interesting & quickly enough to please.

Eructoblaster (3749) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2016
En fût au Festibière de Gatineau. Robe noire, opaque et coiffée d’un mince col beige. Arôme de malt agrémenté de notes de café, de dattes et de bois. L’alcool est bien masqué. En bouche, la base maltée est accompagnée de nuances de houblon et de cacao. Ici encore, l’alcool se fait discret. Longue finale boisée.

On tap at Trou du Diable Shop. Black with a medium creamy beige head, good retention, leaving good lacing. Aroma is well balanced with roasted malts, vanilla, cocoa powder and mild fruitiness. Taste is slightly sweet with mild acidity, roasted malts, vanilla, mild fruitiness, bitterness chocolate and hints of anise. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Creamy-ish mouthfeel. Roasty finish. Balanced and flavorul Imperial Stout. Not over the top in any way. Quite easy drinking. Not boozy at all. Much better than expected.

De Couleur avec col très dense de couleur moka . On a des notes de chocolat noir qui est très perspective avec des notes de tarification très prononcé. C’est très complexe comme goût le chocolat et la tarification font un bon mélange ensemble. Le goût est riche et ça respecte le style. J’ai bien aimé

Dégustée en fût au Vices & Versa. Ma tulipe est absolument flamboyante! Noire comme la Nuit, une mousse beige bien tassée et dominant une pré-mousse riche et annonciatrice. Cette crème blanche! et riche en surface me fait saliver! Franchement un look irréprochable! Un nez qui me rappelle toutefois la levure Belge gomme balloune et riche. Ça ne sent pas la torréfaction ni le malt rôti. Je suis franchement du côté du sucre abbatial. Bouche qui manque de maturité. C’est plutôt mince et sucré mais surtout sans réelle profondeur. Encore cette signature Belge plus agaçante que jamais dans un stout impérial. Je reconnais toutefois ici une torréfaction plus importante qu’au nez mais ça reste très unidimensionnel : levures belges sucre. Il est clair que cette bière manque de maturité. Une période de vieillissement en bouteille lui fait franchement défaut à mon avis.

12 ounces on tap at Vice Versa. Aroma: coffee , chocolate, roasted malt, a tiny tiny bit smokey. App: dark brown with red tint, nice big foamy moka head. Taste and palate: medium to full body, creamy, smooth, medium sweetness, light roasted, fruity and bitter finish. Overall: good stuff. Wonder if this is carbonated with co2. Anyway, really creamy and I liked it quite a lot.
