COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Appearance: Bonus point for the absolutely beautiful label! Pours a nice inky chocolate black with a nice thin brown head. Aroma: Roast, bread, coffee, chocolate. With a richness of aroma not unlike a brownie! In fact this is pretty much what I’d expect a coffee flavored brownie to smell like. Taste: Sweet and creamy with a lightly chocolate taste that gradually fades to a long coffee finish. Surprisingly restrained for a beer of such deep colour and body. A little bit of minerality. Good, but not great. Palate: Smooth and creamy with an attractive fizz on the lips that fades quickly. The lingering finish on the mid-tongue doesn’t touch much fo the roof of the mouth at all. Not a lot of character here, but pleasant. Overall: This is a powerful and quality offering in the stout department, and will satisfy you utterly. While not quite world-class, it definitely doesn’t fall short, and I’d happily drink this again.

Couleur noire foncé, mousse fine et crémeuse, brune comme le créma de mon expresso, laisse peu de trace sur le verre. Peu de bulles et pétille doucement sur la langue. Douce odeur boisé. Un goût de café vient en premier pour laisser la place à un goût plus boisé. Entre les deux, une petite amertume apparait avec le goût de cacao. Assez épaisse et huileuse.

Pours a very dark blackish brown with a large light brown rocky head leaving lots of lace up the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee notes, mild sweetness and cocoa. Flavour is coffee, roasted malts(adds to the bitterness) mild-med bitterness from hops and grain, moderate sweetness, cocoa and a nice dry finish. Excellent dry stout, definitely would recommend!

Reimer96 (1073) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2013
Thanks to cfrancis for this. Pours an almost opaque black with a red tinge and a nice frothy brown head like crema on an espresso shot. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, wood and chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, wood and then a nice light bitterness on the finish. Finish dry with a medium low carbonation. Excellent dry stout.

Bouteille de 600ml. 5,99$ chez Saucisserie BDF. La bouteille a elle seule vaut probablement le prix, très belle bouteille pour les collectionneurs! Odeur de café, chocolat et légèrement boisé. Beau visuel, stout très foncé avec une onctueuse et délicieuse mousse couleur café crème. En bouche le café et le malt dominent puis disparaissent rapidement pour laisser place à un arrière-gout très houblonné, boisé, légèrement fumé. La bière est crémeuse, peu d’effervescence, c’est comme boire un café au lait. Bon produit en général, à essayer pour comparer avec une Stout plus traditionnelle .

Dark brown pour with a small, tan head. Aroma is woody with some chocolate notes. It has a somewhat light body with creamy texture and average carbonation. The taste mildly sweet, while at the same time lightly roasted and dry.
