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.

simardsam (148) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Enbouteillée le 30 juillet 2013. Noire, opaque, avec un épais collet de mousse couleur moka, effervescente. Nez torréfié de café et chocolat, d’anis et de pâte à biscuits. Goût encore torréfié de café et chocolat noir. En bouche, une sensation aqueuse vient s’introduire dans la gorgée, au milieu du côté torréfié des grains et de la finale sèche et amère.

CapFlu (4616) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Lasting frothy off-white head atop an opaque black body. Nose of deep roasted malt and butter. Palate is thin and this is very light. Decent flavour but "epic stout" is a stretch. Mild jerky, coffee and ash. Decent but likely the biggest Trou du Diable disappointment I’ve had so far.
