750 mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 22/08/15#312. Deep brown-black with a decent mocha head. Sort of tangy and vinous with lots of dark chocolate, some molasses, ashen deep-roasted masks, some alcohol, a bit of fruitiness, very deep and dark, rounded, quite good. Medium-full body, soft, refined effervescence, silky. Lots of very dark malts, molasses, slightly smoky, molasses, dank hops, a little pine and resin, black coffee, complex and big; lightly sweet with good bitterness, and a long, inky, richly dark malt finish. Nice stuff.

Bière noire, mousse moka avec un nez de grains cuits. En bouche, l’amertume d’un bon café corsé domine avec l’alcool. Le background offre une belle acidité. Très bonne bière.

Un Imperial Stout dans les normes, l’Obscur Désir annonce ses couleurs (très foncées) dès l’entrée en matière : crémeuse, compacte, très épaisse, il est évident que BDT n’a fait aucun compromis. Puissante autant en nez qu’en bouche, elle révèle une amertume racée en finale, après une sauce au café et au chocolat très noir, qui enrobe l’intérieur de la bouche. Copieuse, audacieuse malgré sa fidélité indéfectible au style, elle demeure plutôt coûteuse mais au final vaut son pesant d’or.

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a resilient beige head. Aroma is coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is very roasty, some milk chocolate, a hint of milk cream. Not as sweet as I would have liked, but still pretty good. Finish is very bitter, reminiscent of NO’s café au lait. Lingering sweet milk flavor, along with chocolate, roasted hazelnut, mocha-cream. Medium to strong body, unctuous mouthfeel, average carbonation. An overall excellent imperial stout.

750ml bottle poured into snifter. This is 9% abv, not 8% as mentioned here. Pours a nice deep black with an abundant (for the style and abv) 2 1/2 finger thick head. A fine lacing is left on the glass as this one goes down. Aroma is a bit roasted (grains), plum can also be found, along with dark chocolate. I find that it leans quite a bit on the fruity style for an imperial stout. Taste is medium sweet with a somewhat acidic finish. Body is medium, with a creamy texture generated by a pretty lively carbonation for an imp stout with such a high abv, again. Overall, a pretty pleasing experience but far from being a favorite. I feel this is gonna be a one-timer. Mind you, it is good, but for almost 15$ a bottle; it ain’t worth its price.

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.

Whatup14 (924) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
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.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012
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.

Bottle thanks to Chad. Pours black with brown head. Nose/taste of roast coffee, roast chocolate malt, vanilla, black licorice and light smoke. Medium body. Dry roast finish.
