Au nez, on reconnait assez facilement l’épice "secrète" utilisée dans la majorité des bières de Kruhnen. Bref, arôme de sauge/lavande. C’est assez étonnant de retrouver cette épice dans une stout! En bouche, c’est assez sucré et le corps est mince/moyen. On retrouve le torréfié de la stout, ainsi qu’un peu de cacao, mais l’épice secrète prend ici aussi beaucoup de place : peut-être un peu trop à mon goût.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a ruby reddish black with a beige-brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roast, hazelnut, coffee. Flavor is loads of milk chocolate, hazelnut, roast. Finish is tons of chocolate, some bitter cocoa. Medium to full body, velvety, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation. May be a tad bit lacking in complexity, but...sooooo gooood!!

Near black with a nice pillowing tan head that is creamy and light. Aroma is cocoa, chocolate. Spices, herbs, and roast dominate, milk chocolate. Not particularly bad, but a bit too heavy in the spices. Thanks Pat!

Dark brown with a good light brown head. Aroma is root beer, ginger, liquorice, fig, Jaegermeister. Medium bodied, slightly slick mouthfeel, herbal finish. Taste is very herbal, root beer, liquorice, medicine. Not a fan.

[My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size lasting frothy beige head. Slightly mild but nice aroma of sweet roasted malt, fruit, cocoa, a touch of sourness, some spices, coffee and licorice. Flavour: Wow, awesome! Roasted malt, cocoa, a good amount of spice, yeast, licorice and more. Medium bodied. I effin’ loved it!

2014-10-09. Black body with a nice smooth foamy head. 4++ Aroma of dry dusty roast, some spice as it warms. Almost anise like. Flavour is similarly fairly dry, with light fruity tangy touches. Light cocoa. Hints of spice? Maybe? Smooth average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 3++ Enjoyable but doesn’t really tempt me back for more. Bottle shared by Blankboy

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
September 9, 2014 - shared by blankboy with me, jercraigs and mabel. Essentially black pour with a beautiful large lasting creamy tan head (4+). Pretty standard impy, with some extra cocoa character - don’t get a lot of spice (4-). Taste oh yeah, there’s the spice a little earthy too, some heat in there! - damn, almost a 9. Slightly light body, slick, seems acidic but probably isn’t, just spice-hot ... finishes a little gritty and quite tingly. Really really like it.

Stephane_Houle (145) - - AUG 16, 2014
Apparence: D?une couleur noir opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse généreuse d’une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de malt chocolaté qui dominent. Saveurs: Au goût, on sent le 9% d’alcool. Le mélange d’alcool et des épices éclipsent totalement le goût de cacao malheureusement. Pratiquement aucune effervescence. Fiche technique : Style: Stout d’inspiration belge Format: 750 ml Taux d?alcool : 9% Température: 12°C - 14°C IBU: 40

TaktikMTL (6010) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
Bouteille de 750 ml achetée chez Veux-tu une Bière? (Montréal, QC) au coût de 12,50$. Arôme: Odeur de chocolat avec une pointe de cassonade. Apparence: La couleur est noire opaque. Présence d’un large col beige mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales torréfiées avec une pointe de chocolat et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de chocolat en arrière goût. (Rating #5696)

radiomgb (2363) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Black in colour with a large long lasting beige head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of chocolate, light spice, some liquorice. The flavour has lots of chocolate, moderate spice, oats and liquorice. Bitter warming mouthfeel, large body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, roasty and spicy. Quite a nice imperial stout, I quite like the spice in this.

750ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha in Gatineau, Quebec.
No date.

cargo150 (765) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Couleur noir dégagents peu de reflets brun avec un mousse beige assez durable. Nez assez complexe de grains torréfié et d’épices. En bouche la texture est plutot crémeuse, des notes de café de chocolat et d’épices resortent du lot. C’est bien balancé, corps moyen a élevé, carbonation moyenne. Bonne et originale!
