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 (911) - 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.

Ferris (7692) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Draft - Nice roasty notes. Jet black with a rich brown head. Dark bitter sweet roast and a odd almost sweet bitter sour note. Dry finish, but not enough to roast in the flavour.

UXO (822) - CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Pours clear brown with two fat fingers of medium dense tan head, good retention, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, herbal, slight smoke. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Full creamy body, moderate to low carbonation, clean dry finish. (4/5) Quite a nice dry Irish stout. Slightly smoky notes add an interesting complexity. I’d really like to try this on tap (or nitro) - I bet it would set up a nicer head and creamier body. (16/20)

jaseurboreal (15) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2015
2015-06-03 - Stout noire au gout de café, de chocolat et de houblon. L’amertume assez présente laisse quand même un léger goût sucrée

left_bank (89) - JAPAN - MAY 11, 2015
More then 1 type of chocolate,cigarette/ash in a creamy dry stout. Left the beer-1/2 way through- to answer the door(which took about 5 minute).The beer tasted "better" after being in the air for a bit- seemed to wake up.

maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This would have to be one of the best examples of this style I have ever had. Incredible depth and balance. Loads of milk chocolate, mild coffee, earthy and slightly ashy but that burnt characteristic follows through to the bitter finish. A treat to drink
