Bottle Pours a good black with a small tan head. The head last okay and produces spotty lacing. Aroma is vanilla, cocoa, and coffee. Has a light carbonation. The flavor is good. Nice amount of coffee. A solid bitterness of dark chocolate. The body is medium. A slick texture. Real good mouthfeel. A strong finish and a real oleasing aftertaste. I touch light on ABV but very easy drinking and just real good. MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2009
Verre de 20 oz, à la brasserie de Montréal. Arômes merveilleux de vanille et de chocolat au lait. Robe noire et opaque, belle mousse beige crémeuse, faible effervescence. Extrêmement douce et veloutée en bouche, le chocolat, la vanille et le malt torréfié sont très bien équilibrés. Finale très légèrement amère de cacao. Une stout exceptionnelle !

Totalmente negra, espuma marrom de boa formação e persistência, aspecto cremoso. Aroma carregado de baunilha, chocolate, licor. Paladar tras mais cacau, baunilha, amargor levemente torrado, bem balanceado com o dulçor licoroso. Corpo denso, média carbonatação. Aftertaste prevalesce o torrado doce. Esperava um pouco mais de potência no sabor, mas não tem como não gostar, fácil de beber. Deu (948) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014

Bottle from the LCBO. Opaque black pour with a small short lived mocha head. Great noses of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, roasted nuts and a smoky woodiness.Light milky sweetness with a more prominent chocolate bitterness. Mouth is full and creamy with a lingering finish. Well balanced stout with lots of character.

06/08/2016 - bottle from Malt Attacks, Brussels.
Dark brown colour with small dark beige head. Nose is mocha, chocolate, caramel. Taste is light roasted, nice mocha, some licorice, light vanilla. Nice scent and flavours but somehow it didn’t reallyvtouch me. Way from bad or dissapointing but had expected more. nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Bottle. black pour with a cocoa head. Aroma of light boozey fruits, dark chocolate, a bit of smoke and roast with some vanilla as well. Flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla, light roasted malt, a bit of ash. Medium-ish body, roasty, bitter/sour, pleasantly sweet, ashy,...lingering finish. Not bad, but not worth all the hype it’s gotten, nor it’s price tag. Peche is far and away the superior stout they brew. xmarcnolanx (937) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - OCT 20, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2009 Aroma is coffee, milky, vanilla, and bitter cocoa.
Taste is astringent, sour coffee, and bitter cocoa- vanilla sweetness.
Mouthfeel is full, and bitter.
Finish is astringent, slightly bitter, and amazingly, not cloying in any way.
Coffee, vanilla, and cocoa dominate this brew, obviously.
