Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Léger goût fruité aux notes acides (canneberges très douces, faibles traces de cerises) avec des traces de vanille lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt rôti, un goût de chocolat noir ainsi que quelques traces de mélasse puis en finale des notes d’alcool viennent se rajouter. Post-goût long-moyen, léger-moyen amer de chocolat noir, moyen de rôti, léger de fruits (canneberges) avec des traces d’alcool.

Bierdimpfe (490) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2016
Opaque dark brown color, faint frothy 3 finger beige head that last around 5-10 minutes, with a good amount of lacing. Flavors of dark chocolate, cranberries and dark fruits, with some coffee and molasses, and faint red ale spices. Earthy and herbal. Smooth medium body with moderate carbonation. Strong finish of sugary earthy chocolate, and sharp bitter coffee. Does not feel fresh with lots of alcohol and very spicy. Still overall good quality stuff. Not very accessible, yet for an imperial stout, it’s quite soft. The flavors are very tasty, quite filling, and warming.

AleRider78 (682) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
Had a pint at Sir John A in Ottawa Has a creamy brown coppery head, very small. Extremely dark appearance, almost completely black. Thick dirty lacing. Faint aromas of chocolate and malts, not much else to me. Flavours are abundant: chocolate and roasted malts dominate. The cranberry is coming through just slightly but noticeable enough. Mocha, toffee and nutmeg round it out. Coffee taste as well. Tasty and has a thickness in the mouthfeel. A hint of alcohol is apparent. Really good brew on a cold winter day.
