3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours an almost completely black color with a lovely sized tan head. dark chocolate malts and roasted malts are prominent in the nose. smells great! extremely smooth to drink. carbonation is there but it’s just enough in my opinion. dark cocoa nibs and slight vanilla come through in the taste. just a relatively simple and wonderfully done beer. wow... a real treat my friends cheers!

Pours pitch black with a lacy off white head from tap. Smells very sweet. Pretty carbonated but a very smooth thickish feel. Delicious roasted tastes like coffee along with lots of vanilla and some chocolate. Very good beer. A little hoppier than Id expect but dont mind it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head and no lacing. Aroma of roasted (almost burnt) malts, coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Taste followed the nose closely. I did get some burnt and charred taste in there. Along with the coffee, chocolate, and vanilla of course. Nothing really stood out with this, nothing special, but not bad either. I thought stouts agedwell though? The bottle say enjoy this fresh, even though bottled in April. Hmmmm

Dark brown almost black pour with large beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, hint of coffee and chocolate and very faint vanilla. Taste of roasted malts, faint cocoa, faint coffee, faint vanilla and a slightly dry bitter finish. Body was a little thin, medium carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
L’opacité de cette bière ne laisse aucune place à un imaginaire lumineux. C’est noir, très noir. Une épaisse couche de mousse brune se pose sur la bière. Au nez, tous les arômes typiques au style se battent pour l’attention de nos narines : le chocolat, le café et la torréfaction sont puissants. Ces éléments se retrouvent décuplés en bouche, c’est délicieux. Malgré l’intensité des saveurs, la bière se laisse boire très facilement grâce à sa texture soyeuse et crémeuse. Un autre coup de circuit pour cette brasserie à l’inventaire sans failles.

500 ml bottle. Pours a rich chocolaty black with a full 2 fingers of foamy beige head that takes a while to settle down. Ample lacing in its wake, and light does not pass; a good sign of things to come. Aroma is muted cocoa powder, roasted malts, and milk chocolate. Flavor is full, especially for a 6.5% offering: round roasty notes with chocolate, mocha and a sweet caramelly finish. Silky and full-bodied with active carbonation.
. Light bodied and really easy to drink. I would have this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-13-2012

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a nearly black, dark brown with large, creamy mocha-coloured head. Aroma is both roasty and sweet with generous vanilla bean, dark chocolate and a little coffee. Flavour is also a nice mix of roast and sweet, neither overpowers but both are assertive, with vanilla bean the most prominent flavour but cocoa and coffee also readily apparent as well as some subtle caramel. Mouthfeel is relatively creamy. Very good.

Poured out a thick dark brown cap that faded slowly. Tasty aroma! Mellow vanilla choco, thick and rich, peeled bark, just goodness, weak coffee thing. Flaveroidz: smooth toasty roasty megazoid blinkoids. More choco and solid vanilla, suckable bakers chocolate bitterness, yah. Yummtakuler. Makes my mouth water when filled with this beer.
