A rich, dark, coffee-flavoured beer of exceptional depth and complexity; a gold medal winner.

Torréfaction, prunes, chocolat et belle amertume en bouche... Le nez est plutôt discret pour le style et j’aime ça en fait, car ça laisse vraiment la bière s’exprimer en bouche. L’alcool est bien dissimulé. Bien bonne bière!!

Canned. The aroma is raisins, the flavours are raising, prunes, like a proper Russian stout.

Deep black with a light beige head. This can poured out a luscious looking beer with a rich umami, celery salt, salt and dark chocolate aroma. The taste is rich dark cacao, salty, a touch acrid and nutty chalk. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cadeau d’un collègue de travail. Merci beaucoup! Apparence : Coule brune rougeâtre, noire dans le verre, bon col brun aéré et pétillant, effervescence semble élevée et moyennement rapide. Dentelle acceptable. Nez : Grains grillés avec des notes brûlées/âcres, léger chocolat amer et léger vanille. Plus on la laisse reposer, plus le chocolat au lait vanillé fait surface plutôt que les grains rôtis. Intensité moyenne. G : Chocolat mi-amer, sucre résiduel, finale dans laquelle l’amertume joue de la partie avec le sucre et pourquoi pas une pointe d’acidité avec ça. Bonne intensité, mais le sucre est l’élément qui prend le plus de place et donne un effet moyennement agréable. Sensation : Effervescence faible, crémeuse, corps moyen à dense, longue finale sur le sucre artificielle, des notes amères et un peu acides des grains rôtis. Bref : Bière correcte, sans plus (ce qui est faible pour une Imperial Stout). Rien de spécial, pas nécessairement équilibrée; le sucre prend trop de place et l’intégration des saveurs n’est pas convaincante. Ça ne donne pas un résultat exceptionnel.

DSG (12170) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 26, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at Tom L’s place. Thanks troubles. Black with a lovely brown head. Aroma of toast, ash, dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, a bit of licorice, and a bit of alcohol. Bittersweet flavor with chocolate, some dark fruits, licorice note, a bit of alcohol. Full-bodied, rounded. Very good.

bumpgrrl (1) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016 does not count
One of my all time favourite stouts.Rich, dark, coffee and an almost chocolate flavour. Crazily full-bodied with a long finish. One of my "chewy" standards.

16 oz can. Pours black with a tan head. Some dark fruit, molasses aroma with a touch of smoke. Cocoa flavor, roasty. Decent, though not that exciting.

Enjoyed this one on tap at The Rhino Restaurant + Bar on Queen st. in Toronto. Arrived with a nice layer of brownish foamy head. Has a dark brown appearance. Dark roasted coffee grinds in the aroma. A bit of a watery mouthfeel. Weak lacing. For flavours, they are abundant: Chocolate, coffee, mocha, molasses, and hints of nutmeg and a dash of caramel. Pretty good stuff.
