(4 oz sampler) 2005 Cidres & Crepes in the Eastern Townships. Brown creamy head with a near opaque body. Deep coffee and vanilla nose. Watery texture yet rich chocolate and coffee flavours. Too thin but very good! Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2005
Close to black, light brown head, lasting as a cover forever and sticking to the glass as much as one can. Anise and oat chunks dominate the aroma that also contains salty and coffee hints to pair the roasted malts. Malty nature is a bit smokey. Smooth and light palate, easy drinking stout. The little hops there are create a lightly floral tang while some green vegetal flavors are admitted to morph into a more than honest bitterness, aptly matching the roastiness that is devoid of any trace of acidity.

Roasted malt and acidic hints coat the crushed coffee beans.
Roasted malt and coffee-ish bitterness paint a light body and unobstrusive ending. A few grapes peek through once in a while, but never stay. This is drier and roastier than their Dernière Brosse Extra Stout, with bigger bubbles and a hoppier ending.
Summer does accept its moments of darkness.
Nicely roasty malt aroma with plenty of chocolatey sweetness. Opaque, darkest brown - almost black with a decent cover of fine-bubbled tan/brown head that recedes to lasting cover with some lacing. Some minty hop notes stand out in the raosty, chocolate flavour. Medium body with low carbonation and a smooth and creamy texture. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with MartinT.
