Couleur très noire avec mousse foncée et crémeuse. Légèrement "surette" avec un arrière-goût cacao. Agérable à l’oeil, au nez et au gout!

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2011
500ml boutielle. 7.5% ABV. Pours opaque black with tan head, tight and resilient. Mocha, coffee, chocolate and burnt caramel/toffee. Grassy hop notes also present. Medium body, complex flavours, not balanced, but effective - milky hot chocolate and hints of ovaltine, hop flavours are well present among the hefty sweet malt body, finishes with a touch of smokiness. Rather satisfying.

Bouteille 500 ml. 7.5%. Couleur noire opaque. Mousse beige-brune persistante. Arômes de malt torréfie, café et chocolat noir. En bouche, elle est très douce, bel équilibre, notes d’espresso et un peu de chocolat noir amer. Finale avec une amertume honnête. Très bon stout.

strowlands8 (179) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2010
Pours real dark with a real brown head. Nose of creamy mint chocolate with some burnt-ness. Flavour is similar with with more creamy chocolate and some bitterness. This is a great beer, one of the better stouts, not that big too considering the percentage on this bad boy.

Metalchopz (2840) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
Purchased at the Marché Omni in Aylmer, QC and says 7.5 % ABV on label. Pours a very dark, almost black colour, with very little red highlights. Nice brown creamy head, but retention is rather average and lacing is hard to find. Hop seems to take over the smell, over the burnt malt, coffee and butterscotch. After a while, the hop disappears and a bit of the alcohol surfaces. Very smooth mouthfeel, quite creamy and silky with the alcohol, very well-hidden. The taste shows more, the burnt malt lingering into the aftertaste. Not as sweet as the nose gives out to be. A nicely balanced bitterness. Pretty good strong stout that goes down easily. A bit too easily.

Bière noire de noire avec une mousse foncée abondante. Au nez, les parfums sont principalement composés de grains torréfiés et de café fort. Dans la bouche, domination du malt foncé et du café, touche de fumée et émergence de réglisse. Liquide riche, enveloppant et effervescent avec une finale pleine d’amertume. En résumé, samedi soir agréable sur la planète Bière.

500ml bottle. Okay, that looks pretty damned awesome - like motor oil with a large lasting brown creamy head (4+). Smells great too, moderate alcohol, burnt treacle, mint, anise, soft light herbal bitterness ... nice balance, slightly sweet. The taste follows - dusty dryness to the malt, the alcohol takes a bit to build; it’s there but well-restrained .... light cream and mint emerge more as the carbonized malt fades back, and I get a bit of earthy saltiness too - really well-balanced. Lush, but not heavy mouthfeel, very soft, almost airy - mild carbonation, and a little alcohol dryness in the finish. An amazingly well-made impy stout, why did I wait so long to drink this???
