Eructoblaster (3844) - Gatineau, Quebec, - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Dark brown body with a thick, diminishing, off-white foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and some subtle vanilla and chocolate hints. Alcohol is present, but not agressive. Its robust taste carries plummy and oaky notes. Ends with a warming bittersweet finish. Not bad.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a ruby reddish dark brown with a resilient beige head. Aroma is roasted hazelnut, dark fruits. Flavor is roasted hazelnuts, red berries, some cappuccino. Finish is slightly bitter, red berry. Lingering annoying cardboard flavor...Light to medium body, weak carbonation.

DuffMan (9543) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy, Grippitis, and others. Medium brown, lively beige head that rapidly fades without leaving any lace. Overly simple representation of the style with mostly dark caramel, some unwelcome bready yeast. Sweet and simple and too thin for the ABV.

wolffish (540) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Peu sophistiquée pour le genre... L’alcool est trop présent en finale. Bon parfum mais le produit n’y rend pas hommage ;-(

BiereLuc (1259) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
Bière noire effervescence qui affiche un col de mousse éphémère. Nez grillé d’arachides avec un peu de chocolat. En bouche, la bière est très pétillante, relativement sèche et alcoolisée avec une touche amère qui rappelle le café en finale. En arrière-goût, l’alcool prend trop de place et c’est la subtilité du produit qui en paye le prix.

punkska101 (1740) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
750 ml bottle from Iga A: molasses, caramel. Slight oxidation. App: dark reddish brown thick beige. T/p: full body finish is sweet of average duration. Fizzy O: average. Miss chocolate it’s too on caramel for me.

czar (7723) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2013
pours dark brown with a tall frothy and stable light beige head, strong lacing. roasted cereals, some burnt caramels, plain molasses, fruity and woodynotes, old black oxidated lager feeling, faint bourbon notes. boozy. bright to average carbonation, light to medium body, slightly harsh resinous and bitter coffee finish. st-sylvestre’s interpretation, which is closer to a bière de garde that they usually brew. interestingly enough to not DP the whole bottle.
