Metalchopz (2594) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2015
Pours a real dark brown colour, close to black, but with ruby highlights. Big frothy mocha-coloured head with good retention and creamy lacing. Aromas dark fruits, roasted malts and spices. This is where the ginger and cinnamon stands out. The mouthfeel is smooth. The taste starts off smoothly as well with well-blended roasted malts, dark fruit, cocoa and then it hits you. The spices seem like chipotle, so a nice burn results. After a little while good coffee notes appear in the aftertaste. Quite a nice dark brew with lots going on, but all very well balanced.

Ferris (7554) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle - Ginger, orange and cardamom in chocolate. Deep bet black with a rich brown head. Dark chocolate, candied ginger and light spices. Well spiced but has a reasonable balance with a touch of heat in the finish. Not bad.

Lanchester (189) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
Pours jet black with a quickly dissipating mocha head, spotty lacing around the glass. Aroma is deeply earthy with some chocolate and roasted notes coming through; I feel the earthy spice notes obscure the malts a bit too much. In the mouth, assertive spices up front...getting some sharp ginger and chile flavors that are muted nicely by the malt profile. Finishes abruptly with lingering heat on the throat; there’s an odd aftertaste as if the brew didn’t ferment out as cleanly as it should for this style. Low carbonation, body fells a tad thin. Can’t say it’s a bad beer but BdT has more solid offerings for sure. I would opt for a chipotle version of their Obscur Desir any day,

750 ml bottle shared with Seb from local iga grocery A: chocolate, minty, cinnamon app: pitch black no head t/p: full body with moderate long finish. Hotness from the spices. O: something else. the hotness is surprising a little too much for my taste. Won’t buy again but salute the effort.

750ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha in Gatineau, Quebec. Black in colour with a thin lasting tan head, light lacing. The aroma is of chocolate, coffee and spices. The flavour lightly sweet, chocolate, light roast, spices. Finishes long with the spice building.

fatbarbu (41) - sherbrooke, CANADA - APR 25, 2015
une biere vraiment surprenante! des aromes de cacao.et canelle se bousculent, poudre de chili aussi. en bouche se place le cacao et la canelle douce, mais tout cela est tres bref et laisse un effet poivré puissant qui saccentue avec la gorgée qui descends. un beau coté sucré , vanillé est perceptible derriere cette attaqie épicée intense. une bière définitivement a essayer, mais je vous avertis cest tres piquant! pour donner un exemple.le.poivré qui descend dans la.gorge est au moins 2 fois plus intense que dans la biere de dieu du ciel! la route des epices. etonnament ici je ne vois personne qui en parle.comme dun fait marquan de cette biere

SuperTiti33 (764) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
Version vieillie en fût de bourbon. En fût à L'Autre Œil. Noire opaque au collet brun moka. Menthe. Épice. Chocolat. Piquante (piment fort ou encore gingembre). Betterave. Cacao brut. Torréfié. Boisé. Vanille. Forte chaleur d'alcool, probablement accentué par la brûlure d'une épice piquante. Biscuit. Mélasse. Légèrement fruité. Très complexe et rempli au complet la bouche. J'aime beaucoup.

ametras (735) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown/black with one finger of beige head. Subtle nose of spices, coffee and roasted malts. Taste is an explosion of spice (cinnamon, ginger, mint), more coffee and molasses. Medium body, very sweet. There’s a lot going on.

Whatup14 (1046) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
En fût au BDT. Couleur noire opaque, absence de mousse. Arôme épicée (piquant), cannelle. Goût cannelle, vanille?, cacao,café, malt torréfié, piquant fin de bouche, beaucoup trop de choses qui se passent en même temps. Carbonation moyenne-faible, corps moyen.
