3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Darkest brown, quasi black colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige to tan head. Rich and intense dark malty aroma, notes of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, a roasty-herbal-spicy touch, even cautious hints of smoke. Taste is rather different: moderately sweet dark malty, chocolately, notes of dark cherries, cherry liquor, fruit in rum, a dry woody note and some bitter hop arrange for counterbalance; slightly warming, alcoholic finish. Full body, oily texture, sticky palate. Astonishing discrepancy between aroma and taste; I wouldn’t mind to find more of those roasty and spicy flavours in taste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours very dark brown with a one finger off white head. Almost zero lacing left behind.
Aromas of dark chocolate, malts, and a promise of something a bit sweet.
On the palate it has chocolatey malts up front, but on the back end there is a strong suggestion of molasses and caramel, with a definite hint of honey-like sweetness on the swallow.
First beer for me from this brewery and these guys are doing it right.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille de 750 ml (édition 2011) achetée chez Bière, Etc. à Montréal au coût de $8.49. Dégustée le 30 septembre 2012 (pint). Bière noire opaque. Col beige crème foncé, moyen, crémeux et persistant. Odeur de chocolat noir très marquée, de café torréfié. Saveur de chocolat noir bien présente, avec une touche de cerises et de toffee en finale. Alcool présent mais pas gênant. Se boit bien, moins corsée qu’une stout impériale. Très typée chocolat/alcool.
