Bière d’un noir intense, coiffée d’une mousse moka laissant de riches traces de dentelle sur le verre. Nez généreux de café chocolat et de houblons herbacés. Ronde et crémeuse en bouche, l’amertume est soulignée par un trait anisé qui s’efface sèchement dans une douceur de sucre candi.

Beardbeerman (283) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
341ml bottle poured into a pint glass around 6 degrees. Pours a fluid black robe of good opacity topped by two fingers of frothy tanned head. Carbonation is sublte, retention is good and lacing properties are very nice. The nose is subtle, more subtle than I’m used to, but you still get the burnt toast, coffee beans and the grassy features, only they don’t pack a punch. On the tongue, the brew is a bit aqueous and delivers subtle notes of ground coffee, cocoa and grass. The finish is abrupt and dry, respecting the style of this dry stout which leaves your palate with a touch of licorice. Overall this stout is ok, but I think a bit more corpus and aroma would make it outstanding.

Pour is jet black with two fingers of tan head; great lacing. Nose is lots of cocoa, a bit of chocolate and roasted grain. Taste follows with a lingering bitter cocoa and coffee finish. Nice stuff, but a bit watery.
