473ml can. Pours black with a half finger, mocha head. Aroma has large notes of dark fruits mixed with milder roasted malts, and faint coffee. Taste is a balanced bitter with notes of dark fruits, roasty malts, and a mild, espresso bitter finish. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Slightly creamy texture with a dry mouth feel. Overall pretty nice. More dark fruit flavours than most other stouts I’ve had. Interesting but tasty.

jkwood04 (5210) - Connecticut, USA - APR 3, 2014
473ml can in a tulip. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, a little coffee, some dough, and light bitterness. Flavor the same. Smoother, thicker texture. A solid beer.

ILduce (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Can LCBO: almost black pour with small brown head. Soft aromas of toasted coffee beans, sweet malts, and nuts. Bold flavours of coffee and dark chocolate covered nuts. Smooth for the style but balanced by a pleasant bitterness. Simply delectable.

deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
473ml can. Great value. Very satisfying imperial stout for under $3 from the LCBO. A solid representation of the style. Nothing exceptional, but solid all round.

lesifflebiere (1618) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Arômes chocolatés et d’espresso, un peu de pain et de boisé. Épaisse, mousse couleur crème, très aromatique. Assez ronde en bouche, mais les notes de grains torréfiés sont un brin timides, en retrait, le tout est assez retenu mais le mélange, pour toute sa gêne, demeure agréable et dans les tons pour le genre. Il s’agit simplement d’une version assez générique pour ce style.

cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Couleur noire avec un beau col brun. Nez de malt grillé intense et de café. En bouche c’est très délicat, un peu trop pour une stout impérial russe, arôme intense de malt grillée en finale du café qui laisse une moyenne amertume. Une bonne bière mais pas plus!

After work pour at the Old Nick is tall, dark & handsome with a thin cap. The imperial stout washes my worries away. Not as tough as some others of the style but fine by me.

Merci à Boutip pour la canette! Je ne suis pas un grand amateur de stout en général mais je dois avouer que j’aime bien celle-ci. Elle marie de façon efficage sucré, notes plus sombres (café/chocolat) et amertume. Je vais finir la canette avec plaisir!

Can, shared with TylerDurden. Heart dark brown pour with a thick brown head. Aroma and flavour of blackened malt and chocolate, bitter finish with notes of coffee and ash. Solid.
