Bouteille de 750ml. Col persistent et fin. Noir opaque. Nez sucré. Très douce en bouche, surprenant pour une bière si forte en alcool. Les griottes apportent une belle complexité. Bravo! veronneaupy (241) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Visuellement, elle est opaque et sans bulle. Au nez, c'est torréfié, sucré, alcoolisé. En bouche, la torréfaction est intense et on goûte l'alcool, la mélasse et la cerise surette. La finale est enveloppante, riche et sucrée.

Bottle from Peluso. Aroma: perfect balance between coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt and cherries. App: pitch black with medium brown head. Taste and palate: creamy, full body, light cherry and roasty finish. Just a tad watery. Overall: really impressed by this beer. So easy to drink, balanced perfectly. Wow! Smell and appearance are so perfect. Taste doesn’t disappoint either, not too roasty. My first beer from Peluso and really well surprised. matbigrey (118) - Mascouche, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014

9.3%. A deep murky dark stout with a thin mocha head. In aroma, nice fruity chocolate malt with light fruity esters, coffee grind, musty character, light vanilla. In mouth, a good powdery bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, light alcohol, light fruity acidity, pleasant. On tap at Noire et Blanche.

Musta, pikkupunainen niukka vaahto, OCT2017. Kohtalaisen savuinen nenään hyökkäävä perustuoksu. Suussa pyörivä, aivan lievän alkoholipolte, liukas. Laimeahko jälkimaku. Ihan ok. rosenbergh (11613) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014

75 cl bottle @ ISKTR 2014. BBE 10/2017.tiong (7342) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Pours black color with a small beige head. Quite unique aroma; toasty malts, cherries, maybe some bilberries, chocolate and cocoa. Oily palate, dark fruit notes, mild cherries, some bitter malt notes, some chocolate also. Nice.

Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of sour cherries, roastiness, some chocolate and licorice. Taste is smooth, roasty and sweetish with hints of sourness and loads of cherries and licorice. Finish is smooth, roasty and slightly sourish with notes of cherries. Quite interesting.
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with some lactose notes is pretty enticing. Taste is a dominated by roasted malt with some black chocolate and some light lactose notes. The cherry notes were hard to distinguish and didn’t play a huge role. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad but I would have preferred the cherries to play a bigger role which would have added some complexity.
