This imperial stout, aged in bourbon barrels, gives notes of roasted malt on a coffee, dark chocolate and caramel background. The velvety palate is sustained by a sagacious amount of alcohol warmth that give this beer the taste and feel of a fine spirit.

Pours a black color with tan head. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, and toffee. Flavors of a typically delicious stout with a bourbon alcoholic backbone.

Pours black, very bubbly. Head and lacing disappears quickly. Lots of coffee and alcohol. Caramel. Slightly oily in the palate. Another hit from a great brewer.

Lanchester (186) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2011
750ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a lasting beige head. Prominent alcohol, wood, maple and vanilla notes in the nose; whiskey character really coming through. Picking up some brief roasted malt and earthy chocolate up front in the flavor, though it is quickly enveloped by a pleasant bourbon overtone that carries through to a very warming alcoholic finish. Palate is quite smooth and creates an easy drinking mouth-feel. I don’t foresee any issues in finishing off this bottle in one sitting; oftentimes I find that barrel aged, higher ABV brews can become overwhelming...a commendable achievement from another of Quebec’s finest microbreweries.

PatIrish (168) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2012
Pours a dark oil like black with a espresso like tan crema head. Very smoky, roasted malts, toast, caramel, coffee all on the nose. Big and bitter on the palate, a sharpness to the smoky flavour that is coming from the barrel aging. Intense and enjoyable.

De délicieuses arômes de bourbon et de vanille légèrement boisé. Des saveurs de chocolat, de café, de caramel avec un gout surette de cerises. Le goût de bourbon est présent sans être trop dominant. Une bière de dégustation de grande qualité.
