Backlog rate. Absolutely wonderful imp chocolate stout. Dark as sin, small dark milk-chocolate-colored head. In-your-face hops as well as a lingering dark chocloate/coffee bitterness.

Bouteille 750ml. Couleur noire huile à moteur opaque, mousse moka riche, mais disparaîssant rapidement. Arôme de café noir, mélasse, malt torréfiés, chocolat noir. Goût de chocolat noir, de café, avec une amertume moyenne et un côté sucré, l’alcool est totalement absent. Carbonation faible, corps moyen, un peu huileuse.

December 6, 2012 - on draught at Les Brasseurs du Temps. It’s ... black; can’t see through it, even around the edges - smallish lasting light brown creamy head. Smells very nice indeed - deep roast, coffee, treacle, nougat and herbal bitterness - alcohol. Taste follows - nice and thick, oily and maybe some blackstrap molasses ... oddly very little fruit character; just a dark, mysterious hugely bitter coffee impy. Syrupy, thick, mildly carbonated, but a long burnt-malt slightly acidic coffee finish - excellent; not boozy, maybe a little dried plum/apricot in the aftertaste.

Jet black with a huge mocha head. Dark burnt malts, licorice, smoke, and soy. Palate is a bit watery and seems thin. Great roasty finish and a medium bitterness. Good but not mindblowing. Pretty tasty.

cfrancis (2358) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2012
Pours inky black with a thick brown head. Aroma is big roasted malts, some coffee and hop flavouring. Taste has a nice upfront hop bitterness with loads of roasted malts, great full mouthfeel and some coffee in the aftertaste. Another great beer.

Liquide d’un noir opaque coiffé d’un col mousseux beige et persistant. Des odeurs fruitées; de cerises, se signalent tout d’abord, pour laisser passer ensuite des effluves de torréfaction et de pain grillé presque brûlé. Un goût semblable aux senteurs, où le coté torréfié se faufile entre des saveurs de mélasse, de chocolat noir, d’un alcool subtil ainsi que d’une pointe d’amertume qui apparaît dans le coin du tableau. Embouteillé le 15-08-11 Lot # 164. Le prix est exorbitant et l’étiquette...on aurait dit le dessin d’un ado prépubère. (180-030312)

Deep brown/black pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, maybe a bit oxidized. It’s sad when Imperial Stout flavors and aromas become "standard" but this one was pretty standard. It all tasted good and worked well together but there wasn’t anything mind blowing about it.

750mL bottle; bottled on 11/08/2011. Pours jet black with a huge, creamy off-white head. On the nose we have cherry, dark chocolate, lactose, coffee, and a hint of vanilla. Taste is dark fruit, 90% dark chocolate, and coffee followed by a nutty smokiness and some grassy hops. Very nice balance between sweet chocolate and roasted bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the thin side with good carbonation. Finish is long and bitter leaving dark chocolate and plum. A delicious brew with a lot going on and an emphasis on bitter flavours. There is a nice oaky/nutty/smokey character to it which complements the roasted coffee well.
