Mélasse, sirop d’érable, café et mélasse, très sucré et explosif. Plus sur le sentier des desserts que de la tradition. Sammy (12601) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Dry with some bitter chocolate. Lasting bubble head. The style but not the best example of it. Ferris (16274) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
Draft - Toffee and toasted malts. Jet black with a nice off white head. Toasted malts, light molasses and a very nice malty finish. Nice. Petkus331 (389) - Redford, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2014
A sweet aroma of cereal grains, caramel, bread yeast, and some toffee. Appears dark brown with a slight purplish hue, white foam, and nice lace. Taste is fruity up front, of mild strawberry followed by a mild roast malt with a touch of sweet and bitter charring on the end. Palate is fizzy and nice. Overall, a very good beer when desiring a mild dark ale with minimal hopping. firstsip (733) - Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2014

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2014 Tap: Deep, deep mahogany, nearly black with a big, foamy khaki head that settles slowly & leaves nice lacing behind. Aroma is sharp roasted malt, some mild dark fruit sweetness, & somewhat phenolic & white pepper-like spice. Taste is mild with some light chocolate up front. Faint, dusty hops, a bit black licorice & plum, more roast, & a hint of alcohol hear. Aftertaste has mild phenolic, peppery spice... Almost like a Belgian yeast (though it’s not). ads135 (4923) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 23, 2013
