Bottle. Nice black body with thin head. Aroma is chocolate (surprise), cocoa,roast. Flavor is really bitter chocolate, light yeast and a creaminess to it. Nice mouthfeel. This was very easy to sip.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2007
In short: A very good creamy and filling Belgian Stout
How: Mtl-crew Halloween-tasting session. The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head.
In long: Very round and smooth beer yet very roasted. Flavours of cacao, dark chocolate, dry wood and light fruity notes. Feels almost as much like a Belgian Ale as it feels like a Chocolate Stout the American way. Brings together the best of both worlds. Much better than the last fusion of the Belgian and American culture: the deep-fried Belgian chocolate wrapped in bacon.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle: Pours a black color with some visible ruby highlights in the light. The head is initially massive, yet maintains a 1-finger height with a nice deep khaki color. The aroma is roasted barley, rich dark chocolate, milky/lactic notes, chocolate liquer and a raisiny hint. Creamy, slick body. Has a sweet and silky chocolate liquer quality. Itís a bit milky with a light metallic flavor. I could tell chocolate of extremely good quality was used. Has some dark fruit sweetness; mainly raisin hints. Has a smooth natural chocolate character overall. The finish gives off some mild roast, and only a light touch of bitterness. A tasty stout all in all, however I found myself looking for more with each sip. There wasnít enough bitterness, as well as something else that I canít figure out. Still pretty good.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Roasted malts morph into dark chocolate, as various dark fruit render complexity to this plump yet drinkable Belgian-style Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam decorates the brown-sleeved blackness.
-Carbonation is comfortable and helps the round mouthfeel to build an authentically Belgian mouthfeel.
-Roasted malts and leafy hops proffer enough bitterness in the finish to create balance.
-Roastiness is rather intense, creating vegetal allusions at times.

Bottle.

pours black with nice lacing and a large creamy tan head. wonderful aroma fresh baked chocolate chip cookies...slightly burnt. flavor is chocolaty and lightly bitter with a touch of fruit and yeast. a medium bodied beer. low carbonation, almost milky. not too robust in flavor but just enough. aroma is my favorite quality. leaves a nice powdered cocoa aftertaste.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle from Caponeís. Onyx pour with minimal dark brown seeping out thru direct light, and a huge, fluffy, 3-finger or so dark brown head. This one looks great. Aroma is chocolate malt, cacao, chocolate syrup, nuts, figs, brown sugar, and some funky notes. Tastes chocolate malty, w chocolate syrup, cacao, figs, raisins, and nuts. Stays somewhat sweet, with a rich, complex palate, and mild notes of funky yeast toward the end. I enbjoyed this one a lot.

Rastacouere (6129) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
Pitch black, lacy off-white head with a lasting cover. Powdery, chocolatey, light vanilla-like nose is quite coherent and well-integrated. Roastiness is also rather present in mouth where its wears a cocoa cloak. Strong chocolate flavours all throughout. Moderately high effervescence. Medium bodied. Minimal vegetal undertones. A chocolate beer indeed, it has some components of a stout, but Iíd hardly call it a stout and it has a certain Belgian feel to its yeastiness, but canít be compared to the few Belgian black ales. Unique and interesting, but I imagined it better, more special and above all more complex for this high-end market it is aimed at.
