Stout avec tres peu de gout de malt. L arome de pomme est artificiel et trop sucrer. A stout with no character. Artificial apple aroma.

lesifflebiere (1355) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2014
Bière couleur cola, à l’effervescence rare, odeurs de pommes, de réglisse et de raisins. En bouche, très sucrée avec un arrière-goût de toffee, les pommes sont présentes mais pas très efficaces, probablement un des fruits qui se marie le moins bien au breuvage des dieux, et d’autant plus quand elle est noire. Ordinaire, à la fois sucrée et aqueuse, elle finit vite par lasser.

Damico (2693) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours very dark, unclear amber with a darker tan head. The aroma is subtle, some light appley yeast, not quite tart. The flavor brings dominant delicious lightly sweetened juicy apples with a subtle stout-like body in the background. It is very smooth and a bit juicy on the body, much better than expected.

czar (4687) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
pours clear light brown with a decent beige head, some retention. sour and sugary apples, bright red and sweet ones, light roastiness - faint malts. light pine and grassy notes - short finish. average carbonation, light body. sugary and slightly artificial apple but not horrible.

Whatup14 (806) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
Bouteille 341ml. Couleur brun sale, trouble, peu de mousse couleur sable. Arôme de pomme, de brandy. Goût de pomme, avec un arrière-goût de café. Carbonation moyenne-élevée, légère, est plus proche d’un jus de pomme que d’une stout.

probstblueribbon (3067) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2012
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass. 19JA12.

App.: Clear mahogany with a fair light tan head. Aroma: Sorta muddy/murky wet dough, sour cherries, a little tang and funk, vaguely spicy, apple juice, apple skins, not very nice. Palate: Medium body, prickly effervescence. Flav.: Some chocolate and roasted malt notes, odd fruitiness, some berries, old apple juice, apple cider, a touch spicy, tangy and funky; sweet with basically no bitterness, messy fruit finish.

Oh, Clair de la lune, why have you failed me?

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2011
From a bottle, served into a flute. Dark brown, with reddish reflects. Does not look very cloudy, light passes through quite easily. Nice, thick white head with a medium level of retention. In mouth, has a very good carbonation. Tastes very sweet, yet is quite enjoyable. Obviously tastes of apples, but not as bitter as I would have expected (I was expecting green apple ; tastes more like sweet, red apple to me). Taste reminds me of a black velvet with apple cider. Has some acidity in post-taste, possibly due to the apple taste. Body would definitely benefit from being thicker, though, feeling it a bit too thin... All in all, I am really enjoying this one, and I actually would recommend it as more of a Summer ale, even though it is quite dark. Can’t understand why its rating is so low, it is quite an enjoyable drink!

bottle - This brew smells of roast malt and green apples. It’s very dark brown with a light tan head. The flavor is sweet with loads of apples that also lend some tartness. It has a roasty finish and a medium body. This brew is certainly different, but I don’t get the hate. I think it’s pretty good.

Metalchopz (2405) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2011
Originally rated January 2007. This apple stout pours a dark colour, but with more red highlights than most stouts. Good mildly-tanned head with decent retention and beautiful creamy lacing. Light molasse nose with a small amount of sourness in the background. Hard to smell any apples at this level. Nice thick mouthfeel which is kind of oily. The taste is different, but not offensive. Start on a sour note, but hits the sweetness in the middle, where the apples are lightly tasted. Then, burnt and roasted malts show up in the aftertaste. I guess, not quite a stout (and by no means do they advertise it to be a stout). More, like a porter with light fruits juices thrown in.

UM02 (319) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
A very sweet beer with an overpowering taste of what seems like green apples. I can see some people hating this but I think some of the ratings are too low. I am happy I didn’t buy a 6 pack of this but it is not that bad either. It is an experimental beer that isn’t quite successful. I think an apple stout could work but the stout needs to be a bit stronger tasting and the apple taste should be milder so that the balance is better. Reminds me a bit of the Sam Adams Cherry Wheat in that the fruit additive is too strong and sweet to produce a good beer.

DeanF (1729) - Nunavut, CANADA - DEC 19, 2010
Has a ruby-amber body with a decent antique white head. Aroma is of fruits and barley. Taste is barley with an apple finish. Sweet mouthfeel. It’s better than I expected.
