Eructoblaster (2958) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle - 500ml. Opaque black body topped with an average frothy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with grainy, coffeeish and chocolate hints. Its well balanced taste shows more robustness and sharpness than the aroma. It leaves a long bitter/roasty aftertaste. Very good example of a Dry Stout.

GRM (2940) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2006
Brown bottle, 500 ml, expiry date: June 2006; eye: opaque black with a nice cappuccino head, head persists mainly as a ring around the glass but also with an "island" in the middle, lacing; nose: roast, caramel and the hops that brings a welcome freshness to balance the smells; mouth: starts like a sledgehammer of roasied malt that gradually fades, it is the only taste up to the finale, as a finale the roasted malt is still present but it is accompanied by a somewhat aggressive bitterness but also cocoa and caramel, astringence is also perceived in the finale, quite bitter, very lightly swee, full body, slightly oily and watery texture, nice carbonation; overall: quite enjoyable FRANÇAIS Bouteille brune, 500 ml, date de péremption : juin 2006; oeil : noire opaque avec une belle mousse cappuccino qui persiste sous la forme d’un anneau autour du verre et d’une « île » au centre, dentelle; nez : torréfaction, caramel et le houblon qui amène une touche de fraîcheur pour équilibrer le tout; bouche : débute comme un coup de masse de torréfaction qui s’estompe graduellement, c’est même le seul goût perçu jusqu’en finale, en finale on perçoit toujours la torréfaction accompagné d’une amertume un peu aggressive mais aussi un peu de cacao et de caramel, astringence aussi en finale, assez amère, très légèrement sucrée, pleine en bouche, texture légèrment huileuse et un peu aqueuse, bonne carbonatation; en résumé : bien aimé

Gorbalev (2911) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2006
Bottle, shared with GregClow, Hogtown Harry, and Blankboy, courtesy of Harry. Pitch black, decent sized beige head. Nice roast aroma - very strong - not much else except the roast. Very dry roast taste up front. Not enough body to back it up - a little watery. Lovely roast linger, revealing hints of chocolate. Good stout, very enjoyable, nice presentation.

probstblueribbon (2874) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2010
500 ml bottle from Depanneur Peluso, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with a fair mocha head. Aroma: Some nice sweet malts, fruity, caramel, molasses, milk chocolate, lighter coffee, dark chocolate, nice. Palate: Medium-ish body, moderate effervescence. Flav.: Not at all like the nose, borderline infected, organic acids, nasty; dry with mainly acids and an unpleasant bitterness.

The nose had so much potential. The flavour was seriously lacking. Drain pour.

GregClow (2860) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy & tupalev - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Deep, deep brown with a medium sized tan head. Very dry, roasty aroma with notes of coffee and cocoa powder. Flavour is very dry and roasty as well, with some nice hop bitterness in the finish. A very good example, right on style.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de café, de chocolat noir, de malt rôti, avec des notes de chocolat noir ainsi que des petites traces fruitées. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement veloutée. Goût très légèrement lactique (chocolat au lait) et très légèrement fruité aux notes sûres (cerises) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement d’un goût de grains de malt rôti avec une présence de café et des notes de chocolat noir ainsi qu’une légère amertume de houblon floral en finale. Posty-goût sec et plutôt long, moyennement amer de rôti, léger de houblon floral, de chocolat noir et de café.

C’est Guinness, mais meilleur. Très bon goût roti et de café, avec un arrière goût légèrement amère de chocolat noir. Bravo!

Spab (2304) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2011
500 ml bottle from La Barik. Pours a fairly dark brown with average-sized tan head. Aroma is roasty and moderately sweet with coffee and dark chocolate. Fairly roasted coffee in the taste with some dark chocolate sweetness. Modest coffee-ish bitterness in finish, but also a bit of lactic sourness. Nothing extra special but a serviceable stout.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
500ml bottle from Le Monde des Bières.
Appearance : Pitch black with medium foamy brown ish head.
Aroma : Light chocolate, light caramel, light coffee. Rich roasted malt. Faint acidity.
Taste : Roasted malt with light hops. Light coffee and light chocolate. Finish malty with light chocolate and coffee.
Overall : Very well done stout. Quite tasty and rich especially considering the low abv. Quite drinkable with a moderate carbonation and a rather creamy texture. Decent persistence of the finish. A "by the book" stout that is very well executed.
