tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - NOV 25, 2011
Strong roast in the nose with fruity esters and an occasional burnt note in the nose. Opaque brown/black body is topped by a fine bubbled head that recedes to a partial cover with scant lace. Fruity and roasty with plenty of chocolate in the flavour. A touch burnt in the aftertaste. Very quaffable for >8%! Full body is offset very nicely by the fine bubbled carbonation that stimulates the tongue and cheeks. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle.

Notes de dégustation perdues dans un ordinateur ayant rendu l’âme. De souvenance: Stout Impérial très intéressant présentant des notes de malt grillé, de café et de chocolat noir. Bon corps lui donnant une présence en bouche qui pourrait rappeler des bières plus fortes que 8,1%. On ne sort pas tellement des sentiers battus, mais c’est bien réussi.

341ml bottle. Poured a 1 finger brown bubbly head with an extremely dark appearance, very much pitch black. Aromas of roasted malts, nuts and some chocolate. Flavours are mostly dark chocolate and dark roasted malts with coffee and notes of caramel. Lacing is ok. Medium retention. Has a creamy bitter mouthfeel, lots of cocoa and coffee notes on the finish. But about halfway through, mouthfeel became a bit more watery. Still very tasty!

Beardbeerman (339) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2016
Pours a deep black, topped by a finger of fizzy mocha head showing average retention and spotted lacing. The nose is sweet dark chocolate, burnt toast and faint leather notes. Strong earthy hops in the back. The taste is again sweet dark chocolate and figs, paired with those burnt notes and earthy hops. Super creamy and full-bodied, with a smooth bitterness. Long earthy finish with burnt notes of ground coffee beans. Very nice. Cheers!

341ml bottle Pour is as dark as week odd coffee. Thin tan/brown head dissolves rather fast. Aromas of chocolate, licorice and coffee, On the pallet bakers chocolate, cocoa and roasted nuts dominate. Warmth of the 8.1%abv balances the chocolates bitterness.

yourilevesque (1404) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2015
Dégustée en compagnie de Ju-Lo, le liquide se montre sirupeux et liquoreux tandis que je le fais tournoyer dans mon verre. Arômes de grains secs grillés, toastés et d’espresso. Excellentes saveurs de réglisse noire, toute en légèreté mais avec une densité qui lui va à merveille. Légèrement herbacée et même florale de par la présence de houblons légers, la bière est aussi effervescence et soyeuse. Finale amère, alcool bien dissimulé, texture soyeuse, cette bière est une excellente représentante de son style sur la scène Québécoise!

Dark like oil. Smells like pure dark Baker’s chocolate. Tastes like pure dark Baker’s chocolate. Oily, rich feel in mouth. Liquid bliss...

8.1 %. A deep dark stout with a very thin light brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate and caramel malt with light molasses, licorice, alcohol warmth, and fusel alcohol. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light coffee notes, light licorice, alcohol warmth, very nice and smooth. On tap at EtOH.

341ml bottle purchased at Marche Jovi in Gatineau, Quebec. Near black in colour with a thin tan coloured head, very light lacing. Aroma is quite roasty and toasty, some light vanilla and burnt malts, dark chocolate. Flavour is a bit chalky, lots of roast, burnt malt as well, some light chocolate bitterness with a bit of lactose, coffee. Bitter mouthfeel, moderate body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, burnt, roasty and bitter. Lots of coffee bitterness in this one, just a bit of milk flavour as well. I like this.
