355ml bottle. So damn good... Approaches stout perfection -- and in deceptively simple packaging. The tendency is to undersell anything that’s available in a six-pack. Don’t make that mistake. This ale is premium, decadent deliciousness.
11.5oz bottle at home. Pours black with little or no head. Roasted malt and dried fruit aroma. Flavors are well-integrated chocolate, sweet dark malt, raisins, prunes, molasses, dark bread. Soft carbonation. Medium body, thick, creamy texture. Very well balanced, excellent stout. Gaelic (194) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2017
Dark, creamy stout. Chocolate, coffee, toffees. Very nice beer which matches perfect with dark, sweet desserts. CraftBeerNick (2657) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2017

Another renown beer, eager to try it with friends after volleyball. My first St-Ambroise, a good one.

Bottle. Dark brown, almost black opaque body, medium chocolate head with good retention and some lacing. Velvety aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, blackberry jam, dried berries and vanilla beans. Taste of well-done roast, herbs, burned caramel, dried berries and wood charcoal. Light, dry and soft. Outstanding brew. Holdwine (1235) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Quite good and spot on to style. Slightly creamy character with plenty of coffee and dark chocolate notes. mjmoen (573) - - MAR 21, 2017
C. Pours a black color with khaki head. I think it’s the coffee flavors I’m not digging CObiased (516) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2017
11.5oz bottle - it pours a very dark coal water black with a thin off white head. The aroma is mostly roasty notes with subtle whiffs of chocolate, caramel, mocha and pumpernickel. Solid flavors of rich roasted grain, coffee, hearty bread and a hint of chocolate.
