On tap at Moeder Lambik. Dark brown with tall head. Chocolate and malt nose. Taste is sweet and also of chocolate. Great oatmeal notes too. Quite bitter in the finish. Not as strong, or overpowering, as I thought it would be.

So I’m flying off memory here. I can’t believe I missed rating this one. I know it was a nice brew. Thick, creamy, definitely chocolatey. I had it several times and enjoyed it every time. Bitter chocolate is the way to go folks.

22 oz. bottle - I’m not quite sure why I didn’t rate this when it first came out. Luckly, I had one bottle left from the half case I bought three years ago. Anyways... Pours a dark brown color with a half finger thick tan head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is dark esters, chocolate, and mollasses. Flavor is much of the same. The alcohol is noticeable, but not over bearing. Medium to full body. A good beer.

toxichop (340) - South Gate, California, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Had this on stone tap takeover and loved it and recently got myself a vintage bottle of this and it was amazing. Poured into a tulip, dark with a brown head with an aroma full of bitter chocolate, and burnt malt. Taste is bitter and sweet, full of chocolate and nuts, very creamy. Finishes smooth with a long aftertaste, a little bit sticky. Very nice brew one of my fav stouts.

(Courtoisie de Blankboy) Le liquide a une robe complètement noire. La tête mousseuse brune est bien épaisse et a une belle solidité. Magnifique. Le nez est subjugué par le chocolat pur et par les grains foncés et torréfiés. Peu complexe mais efficace. Les saveurs sont aussi dominées par un chocolat amer et par des flaveurs dilluées qui rappellent la mélasse. Légèrement décevant. L’alcool se signale avec une certaine force. Correct. La bouche est en manque de corps. Étonnant. Le pétillement doux. En accord avec le style. La texture toute en finesse. Quelque chose qui cloche. La finale se fait sur des notes amères de chocolat et de torréfaction avec la présence indéniable d’un alcool chaud. Finale somme toute agréable. En résumé, très partagé concernant cette bouteille qui a un âge légèrement avancé.

Bomber de 650ml. Bouteille peinte brassée en 2008 et bue en 2011. Merci Patrick. Bière ténébreuse noire comme la nuit avec une belle couche de mousse brune. Le nez est tout en chocolat, il ne fait pas dans la dentelle. L’alcool est trop présent à mon goût. Le chocolat se déploie en bouche laissant une forte amertume. Elle est mince (malheureusement), les effets de l’âge se font sentir. Une fois avalée les effluves d’alcool nous montent au nez provocant un effet de chaleur peu agréable. 6/10

Bottle with many thanks to Boutip. Dark, black pour with a centimeter of brown foam. Lots of chocolate in the aroma, lots of burnt grain, cocoa and a hint of molasses. Taste is bitter, quite roasted, you can really pick up the oatmeal stout flavors. Palate is a bit thin for the style with a bit bit of alcohol on the finish.
