Bottle - Bittersweet syrupy chocolate. Jet black creamy brown head. Bittersweet chocolate, syrup and light bitterness. Long chocolate syrup finish. Not bad. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2010
A dark brown stout with reddish hues and a thick brown head. A pungeant chocolate aroma with light fruity esters, dunkel like, very nice. In mouth, a smooth sweet chocolate with loads of bananas and berries, light cloves, chocolate notes, not a stout really but still a good offering. Bottle from brewery, shared with Inertiaboy, Diogene, Mike H. and GRM. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 29, 2012
from Mondial de la Bière 2011, Strasbourg - cloudy dark brown beer with a rubish hue; pretty nice foam left; nice lacework; deep aroma of cold coffee, cocoa and vanilla, roasted and with notes of hazelnut; full-bodied and creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation; some sweetness and a respectable bitterness, very long chocolatey and nutty finish with light notes of warming alcohol - superb Sammy (12616) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2010
Enjoyed on-tap at Bar Volo, with the owner of Beaus. A complex aroma of coffee and yeast. Black with a notion of head. Medium mouthfeel, or even a tad below for its style. A story in chocolate, and yeast. Very drinkable, more of a single stout really. A touch of sourness mid-sip. jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2010
2010-04-14. Black body with a modest tan head. 4+ Flavour is interesting, pleasant modest roast, sweeter core of muted malt, fruity yeasty character throughout. 7+ Aroma is mild, partly because its cold. Light fruity yeast and alcohol comes out as it warms. Smooth medium bodied palate is appropriately carbonated. Enjoyable. The roast contrasts with the underlying fruity character which varies in how well it works. On tap at Volo, Toronto

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. MartinT (10037) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
My Bottom Line:JoeMcPhee (9517) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2012
Milk chocolate and earth evolve into a chicory-like bitterness in this lean and forgettable Belgian-style Imperial Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the dark brown.
-This is a tad too vegetal for my tastes (not from DMS though).
-The mouthfeel lacks comfort.
-The malt flavors don’t have the type of flavor I like in the style.
Deep black pour with a touch of soft licorice and a bit of light clove and cocoa. A touch of bitterness and some distinctly spicy character. Softly peppery. Decent.

Wasn’t sure what they meant at first by Belgian imperial stout but I can see it after a taste. There’s some floral hops that creeps out of the taste. Unfortunately it seems to come at the cost of doing a proper imperial stout. By that I mean the taste of roast or smoked malt is hard to detect here. The hops give a floral leave. Pours black with great lacing. Some bitterness in leave as well. On tap at volos. czar (9338) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2013
pours very dark brown, red hue, with a creamy beige head, good retention and lacing. roasted cocoa nibs, spicy and fruity esters throughout, milk chocolate - some lactose-like sweetness, chocolate porridge - dark roasted oatmeal, hint of bubblegum. moderate carbonation, medium to full body, earthy-spicy-fruity-lightly resinous finish. enjoyed it!
