martin21 (155) - Quebec city, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2008
Stout qui sort de l ordinaire, a la limite de l imperiale. Tres malter, beacoup de rotie, de cafe et chocolat, avec un peu de caramel et de grains. Le houblon parait quand meme bien au travers. Tres bonne. Out of the ordinairy stout; borderline to be an impy. Great maltiness, lots of roastiness, coffee, chocolate, with some caramel and grainy notes. Well hopped too. Very good.

Sammy (8912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2008
Pours black with small and dissipitating brown head. Looks thick, full roasted barley/coffee aroma.The taste is with above average mouthfeel. Straight out roast, not bad at all. But 500 ml. was way too much. One dimensional taste and without complexity, decent malt backing.

The pour reveals a pitch black color with a thick, light brown head. Solid aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and molasses. Very good flavor of roasted malt, chocolate and molasses, the roasted malt provides a solid bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. This is my favorite from this brewery so far and it’s a sign of interesting things to come.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Firm chocolate and roasted malts build a healthy mouthfeel where molasses and roasty bitterness happily thrive, creating a very efficient and tasty Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Thick foam settles and laces atop the opaque blackness.
-The sparkling carbonation is a tad too much for the body. Not a big problem, but the body could be improved upon by decreasing the bubble level.
-The flavor profile is well balanced.
-This remains very drinkable throughout, even though it is 7%. This is my favorite from them so far!

From the bottle and from the tap at the brewery pub.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - SEP 24, 2008
(Bottle). Bitter chocolate and malt aroma. Black in color with large fluffy dark brown head. Flavor is full of malt and bitter-sweetness. The finish is a little abbreviated, but otherwise a really good stout.

Bio, tres foncé, cette noire au café dégame une bonne touche d’ amertume et une finale tres douce. Fait la job!

Shared with Pyrozoid

App.: Pitch black poor, brown frothy head

Aromas: Strong coffee notes, dark chocolates, strong dark pepper, essence of banana, toast...

Palate: Strong roasted bitter profile, medium / thick body, creamy

Flavors: Dark chocolate non-sweet, moca coffee, light vanilla, pepper

Notes: This is honestly a great stout... lacking a little body for a 7% brew... but all around preaty respectible

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2008
Bouteille de 500ml. La bièse se présente avec une robe noir opaque surmontée d’une belle mousse couleur chocolat. Au nez ondécouvre des arômes de chocolat, de café-moka, de vanille et de caramel. En bouche la bière possède un bon corps et une texte lourde et crémeuse. La bière s’exprime par des flaveurs de chocolat noir, de café, de caramel et des notes subtilent de houblon.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2008
Objectively speaking: Draught at the pub. A clean and full-bodied, well balanced stout.
I like: Well integrated roastiness - certainly taking a coffee edge on top of burnt bread, mild blackberries, wooden smoke. Fitting soft alcohol whispers. Creamy, soft texture. Everything is well balanced, for the best and for the worst.
I dislike: I’d perhaps appreciate an additional fruity tang. This is not very complex, but warming and satisfying.
