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

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Dark brown/black. The nose is really loaded with ripe dark fruit, cooked plums and rum/brandy back notes. Rich and fruity with some dark malt and a lot of plum and rich cocoa. Has an almost Belgian malt note - touches of vineous yeast and a hint of booziness. Damn tasty beer.

Bonne bière foncée, mais sans plus. Je n’ai rien trouvé d’extraordinaire. Ni bonne ni mauvaise...

750ml bottle. Pours black, Watery looking. Big, big almost white head with big carbonated bubbles. Smells of a regular pilsner with a slight roastiness and bourbon background. Watery, carbonated mouthfeel. Roasty, cocoa bourbon flavor with an alcohol aftertaste. Meh

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 (3886) - 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.
