COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

Beer from Craig and Lisa last year at Christmas. Been in the cellar. Pitch black with tan head. Warm, lovely aroma of chocolate, coffee, hint of wood smoke. Similar flavours. Very smooth. This is an awesome beer.

Pours black with brown head. Aroma of vanilla and coffee. Vanilla lead to a bitter coffee finish. The aroma and taste are awesome. Superb!!!

On tap at Brothers in Ottawa. Wow! Amazing nose on this, the most enjoyable nose ive ever experienced, and the flavour doesnt disappoint either. Definitely holds it own against St. Ambroise Oatmeal and other world class stouts.

Keg at Brewdog Birmingham. Might just be the best beer Ive ever tried. Certainly the best Stout. Wowee - flavour packed from first sniff until 5 minutes after the swig. This tantalised my nose shooter and tongue lung threshold equally. Mega blinding.

Its body has a very dark brown burnt wood color which only allows light to seek through at the edges. The pour produces a tall and thick chocolate milkshake like head. This tall head slowly settles to a thin tightly packed cap of foam that makes lots of lacing on the glass. The aroma is deep and full bready yeast notes, toasted grain, powdery cocoa, wet leaves and damp earth. Its medium to full body has good mix of roasted malt sweetness with hint of bitterness from both roasted malt and hops. Up first are chocolaty cocoa powder notes on top of toasted bready grain and earthy yeast with the slightest wet old woody presence. In the middle I pick up light vanilla bean notes as well as a light cream soda like flavor notes. This moves into the finish which adds dark roasted coffee and earth leafy hop bitterness. On the palate it has a smooth creamy feel with mellow carbonation.

Noire dencre, mousse beige, col persistant fin. Nez fantastique : chocolat, cannelle, vanille, caramel, des trucs suralistes de mon enfance, de la torrfaction noire mais douce, jamais trop amre. En bouche cest idem, douceur, trs peu (ou pas) deffervescence, des pices, de lquilibre, chocolat/vanille mais a va surtout bien au del. Exceptionnel.

This Quebec Stout is the perfection of a stout. It as a distant smell of cocoa and burnt malt. The taste explode in a twist of vanila and roasted malt. Drink this any day at any time! Cheers!
