COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is topped with an eternally compact foam and has a wonderfully intense roasted smell with a hint of chocolate. It’s well-rounded and its taste is dominated by roasted flavours which are in symphony with a choir of hops.

josarah (112) - Hinesburg, Vermont, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Draft at brewpub. Deep black color, long lasting tan head, roasty aroma. All of the previous coffee/chocolate reviews ar dead on. The hops give a nice bitter espresso feel. Awesome beer.

2017-08-17 En fût @ Brouhaha Rosemont. Liquide noir coiffé d'une mousse onctueuse couleur café. Arômes de café fraîchement moulu et de malt torréfié. En bouche, café, grains rôtis, chocolat et même des petits fruits noirs. Excellente stout. Une référence pour moi depuis la première fois que j'ai posées mes lèvres sur cette bière au début des années 2000. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

papat444 (136) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
Appearance: Super creamy tan head with a dense black body. Look very good! Smell: Surprisingly mute actually. I coaxed out some faint hints of cocoa and charcoal but not much more. Taste: More charcoal (not harsh) with some coffee, bitter-sweet chocolate and an overall roasted character. It’s a little to subtle for my tastes but it gets a little more complex as it warms. Some bitterness at the end, hops maybe? Still, not as rich as i would have liked. Mouthfeel: Can’t really complain here as it’s oh so smooth. Quite full bodied with a low carbonation. Feels as comfortable as a blanket. Drinkability: No trouble at all here. I would gladly have another for sure but i’d probably opt for a pint instead of a glass.

On tap at DDC St-Jerome. This is a simple light black beer, well balanced with a surprisingly complex taste constituted in part with a nice subtle cocoa touch. I think it is a more "general purposes" black beer from DDC. It is lighter than most others black beers, and is not given up a lot as a compromise. In fact, I just enjoy it more because of that.

I couldn’t get much on the nose with this beer, but the flavor and finish is great. One of their best.

sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2016
Draft @ ML Fontainas, 3ième fête de la St Jean, shared with Rlgk and _Angst_. Brune foncée presque noire, col épais café au lait, le tout bien crémeux. Arôme est malté grillé à souhait, avec un bon chocolaté en rétro et ce bouquet superbement bien rendu de stout anglais. Amertume fine perce en rétro-nasal. Palais est malté avec de belles notes au caractère grillé, chocolat amer restant dans une approche de style assez anglaise.

rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2016
Draught at Moeder Lambic Fontainas Attention Passage De Brasseurs 160623. Opaque black beer with a beautiful lasting beige head. Roasted chocolate aroma, caramel, cocoa powder, raisins, some licorice. Dark chocolate flavor, coffee, tar, some raisins, some cocoa powder. Really nice stout.

Kauge (2123) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 9, 2016
Tap at DDC. Didn’t take much notes. What I have written is: looks stunning, extremely thick mocha head with excellent retention and lace; extremely roasty and sweetish, cocoa and dark chocolate, the sweetness just enough, lovely soft and smooth on the palate. Must have it again.

olio (10547) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Tap @ O’Hara’s Freehouse.
Pours black color with a small beige head. Roasted aroma, chocolate, mild wooden notes, hints of coffee and subtle hops. Creamy chocolaty flavor, toasted malts, some dark fruit notes and mild bitterness. Balanced and very tasty.

Matwill (101) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
En fût au Vestiaire. Stout à l’azote qui nous donne ce goût crémeux et doux. Malt rôti et chocolat domine les flaveurs ressenti, le tout bien balancé.
