lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Texture mi-épaisse, nez en chocolat, en boisé et en café dans cette bière à la mousse couleur beurre d’érable ; un peu deo vanille en arrière-plan. La bouche est semble-t-il un peu fumée, avec des notes de grains rôtis en trame de fond, et des houblons bien présents en finale. Relativement complexe, pas très riche mais fort agréable, ce stout belge n’est pas exceptionnel, mais comme la plupart des produits de cette brasserie, il est bien au-dessus de la moyenne.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4969) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. A dark black pour with a big tan head. Plums, raisins, rich dark stone fruit, bread pudding luscious aroma. Med-light bodied with a spritzy mouthfeel, maybe too light. The flavor is wonderful rich chocolate, cocoa, dark breaded fruits - like a pudding, wonderful.

zimbo (948) - SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Cola like to the eye with an initial flourish of foam which levels and thins over time. Light bodied in the mouth with fairly liberal carb. Hard with strong penetrating notes of nail varnish and sugar. Despite the catchy image and packaging this beer doesn’t just disappoint but its wrong on so many levels. While hardly a style hardliner for me this beer is as far away from a Belgian Imperial Stout as possible. In fact, its virtually dishonest to call it so. Very disappointing and I’m afraid a prime example of in general how far Ontario craft breweries (despite progress )are from competing with the big boys internationally. Wake up Matt.

Couleur noir avec un beau col beige. Nez de chocolat noir, Torréfaction, Grains grillés, épices. En bouche les saveurs sont bien balancé Chocolat noir, Torréfaction, Grains grillés, une petites touches belges avec les épices. Corps moyen. Carbonation moyenne. Le coté belge est subtil mais présent. Une bière interessante!

DuffMan (10032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie and Grippitis. Dark brown, amber highlights, very lively tan head. Not a lot of roast in here, more dark fruits, dark caramel, sublte spices. Nice enough, but not very stouty.

jksipa (862) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Deep brownish red with a generous dark tan head that sticks around. Nose is caramel, chocolate, banana and some light coffee. Moderately sweet start with a bitterness in the middle that dries things out a bit. Mouth is a bit thin for a stout but creamy with average carbonation.Decent but not spectacular.

RickTheRick (949) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Noire mais pas tout à fait opaque, des reflets couleur cola apparaissent lorsqu’on brandit le verre à la lumière. La mousse beige est assez généreuse et insistante. Au nez, on peut détecter facilement des arômes chocolatés et caramélisés, ainsi qu’une légère torréfaction. En bouche, c’est pas mal une copie conforme de l’aspect olfactif de la bière. Le côté "belge" de la bière n’est pas très présent voire pas du tout, ce qui est un peu dommage. Une bière très sucrée qui ne passera pas à l’histoire.

Tap at Loose Moose, Toronto 05/07/14. Pours dark coca cola brown with an off white head. Aroma is sweet, watered down rum and coke. Medium body, medium carb. Lots of dark sugar, treacle, some rum, light dark fruits... Oddly thin, and lacking.
