Quevillon (3024) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
Drank on tap (12 oz) at Le St. Bock in Montreal, on October 30, 2010. Burnt brown, thin beige head. Barley malt aroma with notes of sweet chocolate, a bit hoppy. Taste of malted barley, a good combination of cocoa and bitter hops, very warm in the mouth. Finaly an harvest ale that I realy like, with some black IPA and some stout!

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
On tap at Trou du diable brewpub. A dark, opaque ale with brownish, almost purple reflects. Light beige head with little retention. Mostly tastes of coffee, maybe a bit of very dark chocolate. Bitterness dominates. A strong cofee finish, with lingering coffee bitterness. Not as thick as I would’ve expected in mouth, has subtle, pleasant notes of alcohol considering its alcohol contents.

Black pour with an off-white head. Aroma holds a lot of really nice complex smoke and earth. Flavor holds a lot more smoke, but not a ton of complexity. Still a good drinkable palate and very tasty.

Après une disco soleil, cette Greg semble manquer de délicatesse, du moins, elle rentre dans l’dash. C’est noir comme le poêle et un mince col de mousse flotte au-dessus du liquide. Un nez d’huile à chauffage, de grains brûlés, de céréales grillées, de "primer", du houblons bien vert avec des élans de chocolat noir, qui semble ouvrir la porte en bouche. L’amertume est assez prononcée, solide et il y a ici aussi des traces de peinture à l’huile. On goûte des soupçons anisés, chocolatés, herbacés et alcoolisés. (898-121113)

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2010 Tap at Volo (in cask). Great beer. Aromas of grain, caramel, and chocolate. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes. Palate is syrupy, with a full body. Black, with a head that disappears. Re-rate: Tap at Saint-Bock brewery. Aromas of roasted coffee, grass, chocolate. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Velvety, with a medium-to-full body. Black, with a frothy head.
