Tasted this beer while on Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 66. Pour was dark like every other stout. Aroma and flavor were smokey and full of coffee and roasts.

Draught glass at the brewpub on 8/26/06.
Thick-looking, fudge-colored deep brown/black body is opaque, with some magenta-orange hues on the edges and a small, but neat, dark beige head. Some moderate lacing as it proceeds down the glass, and strong retention.
Oats and chocolate-tipped cigars rise up from the glass, not challengingly so, but luxuriously and seductively. Moves towards chocolate-covered raisins, with a hint of Spanish coffee-like intrigue. This might also be taken as sharpness, but the unfiltered nature and the gummy thickness really make it difficult to come off as sharp. Some pale sugars and a creamy vanilla note are stronger as it warms, with light alcohol apparent.
A medium body, quite well-attenuated for a foreign/export stout, is immediately apparent, and although there is a chewy, fudge-like texture, the sweetness doesnt match, allowing it to go down rather easily and appear more watery than it really is. Bits of coffee beans, but mostly dry fudge, chocolate-covered raisins, hints of vanilla and a touch of alcohol bite. Carbonation is moderate, not quite as soft and tight as it could be, leading to more of a spritzy sensation and less a creamy one. Dark fruits are lightly apparent, mixing with the alcohol, as it warms and becoming intertwined with residual sweetness. Though I should note, this is hardly overt in its alcohol apparency, just slightly noticeable. Some minty/grassy hops grace the palate through the middle of the flavor, but are otherwise completely lacking.

BQ2010. Draft at The Bedondaine Brewpub. Poured dark body with some small brown lacing. Aroma and flavor were smokey and full of coffee and roasts - worst part was definitely the watery mouthfeel noticeable on many of these brews.

rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2005
Deep black color, with a tan-colored head, with roasted malt, dark malt, hint of chocolate, even note of nutmeg and cacao aromas folow through on a medium-bodied palate with black coffee, burnt malt, roasted malt, touch of vanilla and cacao, also note of roasted coffee beans, leading towards a dry roasted bitterness finish.

godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2010
on tap at the brewpub. pours black with a small tan head. roasted malts and coffee very apparent in the nose. taste is sweet but nicely balanced with a bit of hops. mouthfeel is creamy and slick, lightly carbonated. i enjoy their Imperial more, but this is still a very good beer.

Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2006
Beautiful black robe, with no chill haze to dull it up, and a somewhat decent mocha head that slowly tapered away at around the half-pint point.
The usual combo of cocoa and coffee, the fusel alcohol then creeps up on you quite cool and solvent-like in the nose, with plums and other dark fruits in the mix.
Smooth carbonation, nice roasted malt and decent body, however it sort of turns to ashes in the finale, leaving it dry and a little flat in the end.
