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.

lello4ever (196) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Il "sangue d’inchiostro" del birrificio canadese Le Trou du Diable è una stout di quelle possenti. Ha un colore nerissimo e una schiuma molto persistente quasi marrone. Al naso è molto decisa, aroma di caffè e malto tostato. Assaggiandola i sapori del caffè e cioccolato sono accompagnati da una diffusa "secchezza" (infatti è classificata come dry stout), con quel gusto un po tendente al legno e al carbone tipico di queste stout così forti. Buona ma difficile possa piacere a tutti.

Hermod (3888) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 5, 2015
375ml bottle. Pours near black with a thin brown head. Slightly woody, some coffee notes, roasted malt, milk. Flavor has pleasant roastedness, light sweetness, milky notes. Finishes dry, slightly vinous and again, woody notes. Good body. Very tasty. Nice label.

Vignale (2378) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier drucken med ölföreningen. En stor stout med stora smaker trots låg alkholstyrka. Kaffe, choklad, hårdrostad malt men också söta smaker av russin, katrinplommon, lite soja. Rund, mjuk, lätt beska. Riktigt gott och stora smaker och stor kropp för den låga alkoholstyrkan.

Before rating this stout, I read a few of the other rater comments and wondered if I had the right beer. Looks like this one should be on tap to be truly enjoyed! Light malty aroma of roasted grains and mild coffee. I don’t detect the hops. Creamy light brown mostly lasting head with fair lacing over a dark brown body. Light sweet initial flavor with a light bitter sweet average finish. Lively carbonation with a dry chalky palate. This was from a 600ml bottle., bottled on halloween 2014.

On tap at Vices & Versa. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown with a medium sized creamy tan head. Sweet roast and a touch of cocoa on the nose. Medium bodied, quite smooth. Roast, stewed fruits, chocolate, cocoa. Warm roast on the finish.

guiroul33 (179) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2015
On tap @ Moeder Lambic. Quite light body, more watery than usual stouts. Not bad but too light for the style.

Freaky_tiki (705) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
Samples purloined from the soiled glass of Helsdon halfway through the Toronto Ratebeer Rollout session at the Only Cafe. Seems to hit all the right notes. Maybe a little closer to the London porter style. A tad sugary & a little waterd down.

AgentAle (944) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Aroma is rich sweet malts, floral hops and some vanilla. Taste is medium rich mouth feel with slight raisin and vanilla tones. Light well balanced bitterness follows and finishes smoothly. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
