Dark chocolate and licorice flavours with a roasty bitter finish. Medium bodied, a bit thin and slick mouthfeel. pierogy (15) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 15, 2006
Very creamy and chocolaty stout. Light head but big flavor. Surprisingly better than most stout around HogTownHarry (7064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
Bottle (341ml). Via trade with turg. Poured opaque ruby-brown with a small tan diminishing head. Nice oily malty molasses and nuts aroma, some coffee and chocolate, darkly sweet. Taste is very smokey, anise, chocolate, molasses and light hop bitterness, very roasty, very pleasant, a little sweet overall. Mouthfeel is flat, oily, sticky and pretty full-bodied - nice sweet sticky stout. turg (156) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2006

What a good stout, a rich flavor of caramel and a bit of chocolat. They have captured the idea of a stout that please every taste. Just another great product from Boreal.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Hmmm! Hmmm! Hmmm! What a good beer...this is what I’m talking about. Fruity and caramel aroma, great black appearance with a thinny head, fruity and chocolate flavor and strong palate that stay in your mouth for long time. I will try for sure more Boreale product in the future. Quevillon (3158) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Bu en fut (20 oz) à Café Santa Teresa (à St-Thérèse, Québec). Brune noircie, petit collet. Arome de chocolat fruité, un peu de réglisse. Goût de malte chocolaté, un peu de café et de fruits sûrette. Savad (58) - Den Bosch, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2006
Bottled. Very dark ruby with a large brown head. Rich aroma: sweet dough, cookie, prune, cassis, butter, nutmeg. Dry texture. Medium bodied. Starts sweet, finishes burnt bitter, leaves an astringent, ash- or coffee-wise mouthfeel. A great dessert! rederic (3341) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2005
Dark coffee-like color, with a thick tan-colored head, fruity note of dried sultana raisins, sweet roasted malt, chocolatey aroma follows through on a full to medium-bodied palate, with a roasted and dark malts, cacao powder flavor, even note of mocha and cappuccino, leading towards a sweet mocha and faintly roasted bitterness finish.

My bottle is over a year old, but she held up nicely. I can’t remember who sent it (I THINK Lubiere) but whoever it was they were from Canada.
Very roasty aroma with a good kick of chocolate. Black with a firm two finger thick head. Nice roasty fore that fades quickly into a sweet cocoa/chocolate middle and ends with mild coffee notes. A lot of carbonation still for a beer that isn’t really an opitmal ager. Nice stout.
