georgebrassin (176) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2012
Black with a minimal brown head that dissipate very quickly, like if there was too much acidity in this beer. Aroma is dark chocolate, cacao, coffee, vanilla. Full body with soft carbonation. In mouth, is like a bitter coffee with dark chocolate and a bit of cacao. Finish is chocolate with a oily feeling in the mouth for a while.

UM02 (329) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2012
Good stout with strong roasted malt taste and an undercurrent of chocolate. Could be a bit thicker and creamier though, that is what is lacking to make it into a great stout.

VincentL (285) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2011
Beau col crémeux couleur café mais... diantre! La mousse est TROP généreuse. S’en est dur à verser. L’odeur de chocolat est forte avec une note d’acidité. Le goût est dans les même notes avec la torréfaction attendu d’une stout. Un peu d’amertume apparaît en arrière goût.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2011
Bière noire, opaque, où flotte un beau col crémeux de couleur café au lait traçant de belles dentelle sur le verre. Des arômes de pain brûlé, d’espresso et une trace agréablement anisée. Moyennement amère avec juste ce qu’il faut d’aigreur pour se marier aux puissants arômes. De texture huileuse, elle est légèrement effervescente, possède un corps robuste et est très longue en bouche. Elle se termine sur de longs arômes et une belle amertume.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2011
UPDATED: APR 5, 2012 Very thick-looking, pitch black ale. Has a thick, brown head with nice retention. Leaves little lacing on the glass. Tastes of strong cocoa and torrefaction, a bit of burnt toast, too. Very good level of carbonation for a stout. Light bitterness follows, very persistent taste. Has a full body and thick texture. A most excellent stout.
