(Un verre de bonne dimension tir de cette toute nouvelle mise en service) Un liquide compltement noir qui se coiffe dune mousse vraiment brune et passablement tenace. Quelques traces qui restent colles sur la paroi du verre. Un nez bien diffrent de ce que je peux lire dans les recensements les plus rcents. Donc, un nez trs peu amricain qui me rappelle plutt certains aspects de certains porters baltiques. Beaucoup de grains rtis et de grains touchs par la fume. Une bonne dose de chocolat extra amer. Un ct cuir et un ct tabac. Aucune incidence fruite dans cette proposition. Un got qui est fidle aux armes. Une concoction amre de grains rtis et brls. Du chocolat pur et un ct franchement amrisant qui semble provenir de la torrfaction et de houblons cachs. Une bouche qui est de densit moyenne. Un ptillement modr. Une texture la limite huileuse. Une finale vraiment amre qui donne lunique impression de pur cacao. tonnant, non?

JulienHuxley (5691) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2011
12 oz glass at the brewpub. Nitro looking stout, pitch black with a cm of cream on top. Very fruity aroma: lots of cherries and even pineapples/tropical fruit. Lots of sweet chocolate as well, hints of vanilla and spice with a faint hop presence. Taste is quite sweet, no alcohol, very fruity, more vanilla here than in the aroma. Palate is mostly flat, very silky and smooth with no alcohol presence. An imperial stout to drink daily.

Diogne (1203) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2011
Sampled at Winter Warmer Montreal 2011. Pitch black with an average mocha head with good retention. Aroma is Chocolate, toffee, fruity notes (candied fruits) and alcohol. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, alcohol, candied fruits and a bitter finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Tap. Pours mostly deepish brown almost black with ruby highlights and a thin creamy lasting head. Aroma is big nutty roasty chocolate, earth, leather, some light fruitiness, decent subtle coffee and light pine-hops. Flavor is grassy, big dark chocolate light burnt notes, fruits, coffee and medium american hops- pine light citrus in the end. Ok.

bedainedebiere (528) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2009
On tap at brewpub. Didnt seem like 9% ABV. A little watery but not as coffeish as other imperial stoiut I had. Bittterness not that obvious, though, Interesting but nothing amazing.

rederic (3293) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2008
Pitch black color, with a creamy tan-colored head, leaving laces, light yeasty, roasty, fruity nose, with some dark bitter chocolate accents, and some floral hop leafy, coniferous, kind of apricot and peach aromas follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity, sweet roasty malt character with a nice flowery hop grassy, leafy accent, still has a fruity side of apricot and peach, it could be the same yeast stein used for the ergot, with a roasted coffee bean bitterness, leading towards a fruity, roasty hop bittering finish.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2008
(Dgust avec french tickler @ Bieres et saveurs) Une biere noir avec un collet absent. Cerise noire et un petit cot bonbon. Gout un peu pic. La biere ne devrait etre class dans le style imprial stout.

Sammy (11514) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2008
Festival Bires et Saveurs 2008. A Serviceable RIS, however there are so many good and great ones out there. Roast, medium mouthfeel. Black with mocha head. Strong roast aroma.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2008
Sampled @ le Festival Bieres et saveurs

App.: Extremely dasrk brown poor, no head, looks fad...

Aromas: Humidity, chocolate, black cherries, hints of coffee (moka)... carrots?

Palate: Full bodied, flat, harsh bitter start that slowly fades... good sweetness

Flavors: Toast, burnt caramel, molasses

Notes: Not a classic impy... closer to a belgian style imperial stout... dissapointing
