wedgie9 (2588) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Tasted on 6/23/14 from a capped 22oz bomber bottle sent to me in a trade. Pours a very thick, nearly black, dark brown with a thick, smooth brown head that slowly recedes to a thick collar of lace. The nose is almost exactly like a mocha with a touch of vanilla, plenty of dark chocolate, deep, dark espresso, and plenty of roast with a hint of vanilla. The flavor is the same sweet-ish vanilla tinged mocha with tons of milky dark chocolate and bitter, deep espresso. The body is super full, one of the creamiest beers I have ever had, with average, but smooth carbonation, and a very long touch of vanilla, mocha finish.

Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of strong dry bitter coffee notes with some roasted malt is dominant. Taste is also dominated by strong dry coffee notes that also veered into astringency territory. Some black chocolate notes are also perceptible. Body is about average with nice level of carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but coffee notes are almost too powerful for the overall balance of this beer.

cards04 (2601) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
Thanks Justin for this gift from Chicago. Pours a smooth black with dark head. Aromas are predominately dark roast coffee with notes of bitter chocolate. Flavours follow suit. Lots of coffee, some lactose and chocolate. Not getting a lot of vanilla with this though. Very nice imperial stout.

Lubiere (12575) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
A deep dark imperial stout with a thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of coffee grind, light vanilla, light chili powder, bitter chocolate, interesting. In mouth, an intense bitter chocolate with coffee grind, Oyster pulp, alcohol warmth, very nice. Bottle from Binny’s in Chicago.

yourilevesque (1169) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2015
Dégustée chez Janick. Merci à Roger, Marc-André et Stéphane. Bière bien noire, dégustée dans le noir. Il fait bien noir. Pas de mousse, sinon un mince anneau beige en surface. Beaucoup d’arômes de café, de caramel et de malts rôtis. Ça sent très bon mais rien de léger. Texture sirupeuse et huileuse, saveurs douces, je détecte des notes d’alcool, de café aussi bien sûr, de la torréfaction et également de la mélasse sur une importante base maltée. Très bonne et facile à boire!

Dark black pour with no head. Slight smokey nose with a hint of coffee. Sweet malty beer. Just a hint of coffee in the finish. Ok.
