Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with light oak notes and black chocolate notes. Taste is a nice mix of black chocolate notes with light roasted malt notes with light residual sugar notes and some oak notes rounding off any rough edges form this beer. I could also detect some light smoky notes in this beer. Body is pretty full with good carbonation and no real apparent alcohol notes. I really enjoy the Nogne imperial stout beers and this is no exception.

Bouteille de 25cl Batch nr : 723/731. BB : 01/12/15. Brygget : 01/12/11. Une bière noire avec une mousse brune. Un nez intense de chocolat, de fruits noires. La bouche est aussi intense, moyennement digeste, un peu d’alcool, le bois n’est pas trop présent.

SlovakSniper (3894) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
Batch nr : 723/731. BB : 01/12/15. Brygget : 01/12/11. Un liquide brun très foncé aux contours comme du sang séché. Au nez, richesse vanillée et caramélisée du fût. Chocolat et alcool de fruits foncés. Pointe de sauce soya. Touche de bacon et/ou de tabac. Sur les papilles, malts noirs, fumée perçante, touche salée, prunes trempées dans l’alcool, effet tannique et vineux. Bouche liquoreuse et, à la limite, collante. Pétillement plutôt bas. Finale jouée sur des notes amères qui se réchauffent considérablement au fil du temps. Buvablité modérée. Un point de plus pour le génial format de 25 cl.
