Une bière noire avec une petite carbonatation couleur moka, ainsi qu'un peu d'effervescence. Au nez, c'est sucré avec des cerises qui sont clairement en évidence et des framboises qui ne sont pas en reste, laissant le côté café du stout un peu en second plan. En bouche, c'est définitivement tout une expérience avec un mélange fort caféiné et fruité avec également des framboises bien évidentes. On est dans les extrêmes avec un stout qui possède également une bonne dose d'amertume. Les cerises sont plus en arrières plan mais définitivement présentes donnant une touche un peu surette au tout. Difficile à terminer, mais définitivement toute une expérience! Ferris (16727) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2017

500ml bottle @ Matt’s(thanks Sergiy). Pours a dark opaque brown with a decent brown head. Nose is raspberry jam, roasted malt, with some cocoa. Flavour is also ample raspberry jam with a nice roasted dark chocolate character. Tasty stuff. beerplace (2155) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2017
500ml bottle at Matt’s (thx, Gord S.!). Bottled in January 2016. Pours an almost black with a brown head. Aroma is raspberry, molasses, brown sugar, some sour notes. Taste is roasted malt and hoppy bitterness with lots of raspeberries, some chocolate notes on the finish. It is quite good, but weird for me. Not a fan of the regular either. mcberko (19193) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2017
500mL bottle, pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma brings out notes of cherries and raspberries upfront, followed by cocoa and roasted malt - smells decadent. Flavour is loaded with dry pithy raspberries upfront, followed by roasted malt, cocoa and a touch of cherries. Very dry, with tons of fruit that has light tartness and fairly low sweetness. Excellent.

Inky colour, with dark brown, but the head dies out pretty quickly. The aroma shows a fair bit of raspberry, light chocolate but the cherry note show through as well. Soft body, has nice milk chocolate character, cacao nibs, and the raspberry is fairly prominent. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2017
Pours a good black with a medium brown head that quickly settles into a brown rim that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of smoke, roast, burnt malt and light licorice. Taste is of raspberries, chocolate coffee and is moderately sweet and bittwr. Body is full, carbonation moderate and it feels rich and sticky. A nice fruity twist on a big imperial stout, I think the fruit could be more intense/obvious but I still enjoyed it nicely. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle 500ml. tom10101 (6280) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2017
Pours black with low-medium dark beige head. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol, cherry blossoms. Taste is of alcohol, chocolate, roasted malt, cherry blossoms, caramel, some acidity, bitterness. Palate: Full bodied, low-medium carbonation. Sticky on the lips. Overall: Not my kind; a bit over the top.
Bottle (500 ml), shared at tasting. Pitch with a medium dark brown head leaving good lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts with a strong but not overwhelming red fruits (cherries mostly, but also raspberries), dark chocolate and mild nutty notes. Taste is moderately acidic with more raspberies than cherries this time, roasted malts, dark chocolate, nutty notes and mineral notes. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fruity and roasty finish. Very good red fruits forward stout with a nice balance. Not too sweet or heavy. czar (9503) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2017
bottle shared by tom10101, thanks man! pours unclear very dark brown, red-purple tint, with a nice beige cap offering some retention and lacing. dark powdery chocolate, spicy mole, fragrant cherries, chewy leather, lots of pine and earthiness, minerals. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily; semi-sweet, very lightly tart and yet assertive medium long earthy-tannic finish. stunning raspberry-cherry chocolate aroma - tough tannins and dirt though.
