Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a nice light brown creamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of deep chocolate notes with light roasted malt notes also noticeable. Taste is heavier than I had anticipated with loads of black chocolate notes with some roasted malt notes and some light dry bitter notes. Body is fuller then expected with good carbonation. Very enjoyable and probably closer to a foreign stout than an Irish stout.

Une petite bouteille produite le 3 janvier 2013. Une bière presque noire avec une mousse beige. Un nez simple de café, de chocolat et de tabac. Une bouche crémeuse avec des saveurs se raprochant du nez. Facile et agréable sans être trop complexe.

Un mince voile, qui ne recouvre pas la surface au complet et qui contient une multitude de grumeaux en suspension dans ce liquide noir. Le café du matin ressemble à ça, où de le mélasse et de l’anis ne seraient pas très loin de la carafe. Le pain au levain, ou un bon pumpernickel, auquel on retrouve une certaine acidité et une amertume qui s’apparente au café noir, après y avoir ajouté un petit contenant de crème, sont les principales particularités gustatives. On a parfois l’impression que le pain commence à griller. (Embouteillée le 3 jan 2013) (792-240813)
