Deep brown/black beer topped with a nice creamy beige head. Coffee and roasted malt aroma and flavor. Very long bitter final. This is definitely a Schwarzbier that has nothing to envy to the legendary east-german ones. PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2004
Dark and opaque, the beer is inviting at first sight. This beer is very close to a porter for it has a very coffeeish taste. The burned of smoked effect is there however and brings a very powerful presence in the finish. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2004
Bottle pours midnight black with ruby on the edges. Large foamy tannish head, with what appears to be very sticky lacing. Heavy roasted malts on the nose, along with minor notes of coffee/espresso. Almost appears more of a dark porter than a blackbier. Welp, certainly tastes more like a blackbier, burnt! Burnt malts and a light hop profile on this one. A bit thin on the body, but otherwise quite nice and easy to drink. Finishes with a light bitterness and a slight nutty tinge, not to mention the burnt malts. Rather enjoyable. Thanks goes out to Rastacouere for the trade! Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Dark brown with a tan head and spotty lacing. Roasted malts and caramel smell. Something sweet. Some spice. Alcohol and hops. Flavors of smoked roast malts, caramel bitter hops and alcohol Spice and tang in the palate, medium body and a bitter finish of roast. Thanks David! jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Opaque black with a very nice creamy tan head and excellent glass lacing. Smoky, black patent malt, and chocolates aroma. The flavor is more roasted malt, with chocolate and coffee palying leading roles. Medium bitterness throughout. Dry medium body with a roasty semi-bitter finish. Nice beer.

Thanks to beerbuzzmontreal for sending this one out. Dark brown, almost black beer with a thick and lasting dark brown head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate with a touch of acidity as well. Flavour is quite clean, light bready malts, roasted barley, chocolate and a touch of coffee. Light bitterness. Nice creamy texture. Nice beer. pintbypint (3819) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2005
660ml brown bottle, split with PandoraGreen and gilvanblight. Dark brown pour. tightly bubbled tan head. Mild roasted malt aroma with a bit of chocolate malt. Nice dark roasted malt character, coffeeish notes in the flavour. A bit of a sweet finish. Roli (406) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
660ml bottle. Big foamy brown head. Very dark brown and red color. Roasted malt, coffee and maybe some chocolate and the flavor. Smooth beer. I like hard to choose between Rescousse and Escousse, I like em both. Diogène (1208) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2006
Dark- Small beige head- Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee, some chocolate and caramel and some more roasted malt. Not the most complex beer in the world butreally enjoyable and believe me I enjoy this one as often as I can. Having a good beer and supporting a noble cause all at once.

tout d’abord, la signature classique de la levure Rj, mais ensuite, un bon gpût grillé franc fort plaisant. Une mousse peu présente, qui disparaît assez rapidement, mais jamais tout à fait.
