UPDATED: FEB 21, 2017 Bouteille 341 ml. 5.5%. Couleur noire, mousse beige. Arôme de malt grillé, chocolat noir et café. Goût de chocolat noir et espresso. Onctueuse en bouche, bonne. Finale sans réelle amertume. Très douce en bouche. Excellente. Un classique MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
Pours black with shades of ruby, forms a somewhat bubbly tan head. Aroma of nuts, chocolate and fruits (black cherries). Taste is still very chocolatey, but suprisingly roasty and smoky as well. A little watery for a stout (not that it tastes water at all -- it’s just a little thin). Pretty round finish. Noticeable sweetness. I wouldn’t call it an everyday beer at all, but an everyday stout?

Deep dark brown color and tan cap look the part. Aroma is mainly fruity with phenols suggesting spice. Taste is closer to sweet stout, showing fruit and dark sugars, very measured roast and coffee character, a bit of earthy spice. Is arguably a bit watery. A light-bodied quaffer for the toe-dippers.

pours oily black with a creamy tan head head and nice lacing. Aroma is pure chocolate. Flavor is coffee and cream. Warm, sweet finish. Nice. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2010
Liquide noir avec une belle mousse beige. Nez et bouche de malt rôti, de cacao, de café et touche de vanille. Présence de fumée et de réglisse en cours de dégustation. Le liquide est de densité moyenne à forte et sa texture est soyeuse. Petite amertume. En résumé, agréable.

Pours with a dark robe and a beige foamy head that is quickly gone. Chocolate aromas with notes of butterscotch and toffey. Very smooth and silky with a vanilla finish. JoeinDahlem (1595) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2010
Bottle bought at the Brussels Christmas market, of all places. Nice looking black beer with brown head. Nose has an even roastiness, pleasant blackberry note, and a faint acrid sourness that is something like coffee left on the burner a little too long. Nice balanced taste, lightly sweet with a fair bitterness, round and smooth flavor. A bit thin, could use more character, but very quaffable. strowlands8 (236) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2010
Fairly plain stout but pretty good. A lot of roasted malt. Not much depth in the flavour but it is good. Not great but good. mabel (9245) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2009
[2264-20090607] Sample. Chocolatey roast aroma. Black body with a long-lasting creamy mocha head. Nutty roast malt flavour. Full body is a bit rough. Really fresh, surprisingly great stout when cold.

In Québec, you can get it for 7,99$ per 6-pack. Still, it is one of Québec’s finest stout, another good brew from that former microbrewer, that success has not corrupted yet. Very well-balanced stout, with high carbonation, rich texture in bottle (I remember liking it a lot on tap many years ago) and appropriate dominant coffee taste, with notes of chocolate and licorice, as they say, but it is the pretty intense bitterness of that beer that makes me like it very much. At least as good then the St.Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, just with their own personnalities.
