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.

375ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a nearly black brown with a three finger, mocha/tan head that thins itself out moderately quickly. Aroma is faint with notes of roasted malt, burnt coffee, and very slight, bitter chocolate. Taste is bitter with a dry, roasted malt, slightly coffee aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Fairly clean in the mouth with a slightly creamy texture. Certainly drinkable. Overall good but not my thing. I thought I’d give this a try but I enjoy more of the chocolaty/sweet stouts and this just isn’t doing it for me. A bit too bitter without enough other flavours to mix it up. Probably wouldn’t buy again but a good brew if you enjoy the style.

0,375l bottle at home bought from Firmabier (I think). Bottle says 130215, which I guess means bottled on. There was another label on the bottle which seems to have been torn off. black color, medium big coffee-colored head. smells milky, earthy, light yoghurt, spices, some licorice, light parfumy. decent smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes lightly sweet, some licorice, earthy, light yoghurt, spices. finishes lightly sweet with notes of licorice, some yoghurt and spices. still ok, but seems to be rather old.

Bierdimpfe (490) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
Opaque black with a nice head definition. The 1 finger head is light brown and creamy, lasting around 10-15 minutes, but making no legs. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, smoked salmon and bacon, faint molasses, herbal spices. Creamy light body with a strong intensity. Lacks a little freshness being dry and bitter, with a present sugary feel. Ends with an earthy smoked bacon aftertaste. A mix between a dry stout and a rauchbier. Overall decent craft: the flavors are nice but the feel is a little off, can be a little harsh, too oily and too thin.

22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with almost no head. Has a really nice hazelnut and cocoa chocolate. A little bready flavor and a bit of spices. Really nicely put together. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black in color, but of a coffee start and dry finish, not my first choice but a pretty good Irish dry stout
