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.

sudomorph (499) - Barrie, Ontario, - NOV 14, 2013
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.

Fun bottle with fun labels and font. Poured black with a small tan head. Aroma was of nuts, coffee, roasted malts, and chocolate. Tasted of big coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Had an oily low carbonation porter like body, which I really enjoyed. Aftertaste was all black coffee. This was a great brewsky.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark brown color, near black, with compact head. The aroma is mild, but with nice notes of roasted malt and coffee. Lean body, the mouthfeel is rather dry; good roasted malt flavor, with a light coffee edge; there is some minimal sourness from the dark malts, while the final shows some more dark chocolate; strong bitterness, with some hop resins hidden by the roastiness.
Balanced, well brewed.
