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.

yourilevesque (694) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2015
Dégustée en fût au Brouhaha. Un stout bien sombre à la mousse couleur blanc cassé, collante au verre et riche. De fortes arômes de café, d’une juste torréfaction de grains entiers rôtis. C’est réconfortant, serré et corsé. Malgré le manque de complexité, ces arômes sont très réconfortantes et les bienvenues par cet après-midi gris de milieu de semaine. Malts modérés en bouche où la rondeur fait légèrement défaut à la texture. Une belle amertume de houblons légèrement résineux balance parfaitement la torréfaction qui demeure au premier plan. Texture soyeuse, lisse et souple, un autre très beau produit de notre brasserie de Shawinigan.

Very dark mahogany with a generous long lasting khaki head that laces well. Nose of coffee and grassy hops with chocolate and some light dark candied fruit. Light sweet candy underneath a moderate bitter espresso and chocolate and light licorice. Medium+ creamy mouth with a quite dry finish. Decent and balanced.

Bottle at home. Black with fizzy light brown head. Dark chocolate, fresh roasted coffee beans, dried plums, light peach and herbs. Quite fruity with nice chocolate notes, and very light on the roasted character. Medium sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with slick feel. Very nice.

JorisPPattyn (8795) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2015
Medium, dense cream-beige head over pitch-black beer. Very nice & intriguing nose with stout features, aromatic herbs & flowers, rosewater, straw, immortelles, liquorice, roasted and sweet; Fascinating! Dry, roasted to burnt. Sweet and bitter(ish) chocolate. Roasted grains, black bread. Creamy MF, seemingly well-carbonated, but not very well-bodied, even slightly watery. Pleasing stout.

bartlebier (2815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2015
600ml bottled 06/2014, date exp.06/2015ish from Mondial de la Bière Mulhouse 2014. - does all it says on the label and promises as an Irish dry stout, with an unmistakeable New World hop freshness: bayleaf-spiked Wiener Nescafe, damp nettle and dried orange rind in aroma, more powdery bitter chocolate in taste, some milk chocolate cream and more bayleaf herbalistics joining hazelnut malts. Great mouthfeel and dryness, quite full for its abv, with few watery pockets. Nevertheless holds it own with genuine IRL Porterhouse Wrasslers Stout.

shoulderbroken (3061) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2015
Tap at Moeder Lambic St Gilles. Surprisingly light. Cola element. Maybe a little fruity, bit spritzy. Light roast, little choc. Seems more carbonated than i would have expected,
