Pours dark, though not as much as I would expect for the style. Head quickly dissipates into a thin, foamy layer atop the brew. Nice on the nose, getting that classic Belgiany booziness coming through, notes of coffee and leather too. Not too complex in the flavor compartment, but it is well done, and it finishes with a comforting warmth. Really liked the texture, smooth and slick...makes for a really easy-going experience.

Première impression au nez : Ouf, c’est mince ce truc pour un suposé Stout Impérial... C’est effectivement sans grandes saveurs et plutôt mince. L’alcool est bien caché mais j’arrive difficillement à trouver d’autres intérêts à cette bière. Très moyen.

Une bière noire avec son parfum de réglisse, son effet de girofle, son cacao sec et son profil terreux. Certainement des fruits au fil du temps. Les saveurs vont dans le même sens. Le café, entre autre, laisse une dernière impression. Le corps est agréablement crémeux. Les bulles sont tranquilles. La finale invente des styles ou en fusionnent certainement: impérial schwarzdunkelbier? Une expérience intéressante qui reste un peu éloigné de l’idée que j’entretiens face à un stout impérial.

Pour is dark brown, almost black, with a short-lived tan cap. Nose is timid but complex: the usual chocolate and toasted malt, but also lots of dark fruit, brandied cherries and a bit of funky, doughy Belgian yeast. Taste is a sweet, fruity malt with a good dose of spice. Alcohol is there for warmth but never overwhelms. Interesting concoction, and a nice winter sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gluepot (691) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2015
A relatively mild nose featuring cocoa, roasted malt and a hint of Belgian yeast. Taste profile features chocolate, cocao, cream, nuts, mild coffee, Belgian yeast (but it is not overdone) and rich dark berries. Solid mouth feel and body. Well balanced, rich and complex.

Tranquillity (2485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
Cask at cask days, Toronto 2015. Dark brown, small brown bubbles. The aroma is raisins, the taste is dried fruits and nuts. Very milky. Neat!

Metalflake (73) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Poured into a pint glass, beer poured a deep brown/black with a thin beige head that dissipated about halfway through the glass. Excellent stout - heavy and thick in the mouth, aromas of coffee and dark chocolate with dark fruity undertones. Plenty of alcohol warmth...I could see myself installed behind a few of these on a dark winter’s night. Really, really good.

Arômes de chocolat, raisins secs, houblon et toffee. En bouche, c’est dominé par le chocolat noir. On perçoit des traces de grains de café grillés, bois et sucre. La finale est plutôt longue, les houblons et grains de café apportant une légère amertume. Effervescence moyenne et bonne rondeur en bouche. Bonne bière en général. Ma meilleure de Beau’s jusqu’à maintenant. J’aurais aimé une présence plus accrue du vieillissement en fût de chêne mais ca reste une bière savoureuse.

maximet (164) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2015
Pitch black with a nice thick light brown head. Dark fruit sweetness, dark chocolate, a little roasted side. Nice balance, start sweet then merge to a bitter brew. Full body with a slick texture.

(bottle) clear very dark brown colour with a small brown head; aroma of dried fruit; balanced flavour with long light bitter finish
