This is not necessarily a Stout, but rather a nitro-pushed Dark Ale with few dark malt flavors (RBeer doesn’t have any category for such a thing).

on tap on the premises. unclear medium dark brown pour, orange hue piercing through, with a very creamy beige head offering good retention and lacing. spicy and earthy milk chocolate, almost assertive grassiness, touch of earthy coffee beans, like a ten day-old ground coffee bag, i.e. not so bad; some lactosean residual sugars. creamy nitroed carbonation, light body - oily; balanced roasty-grassy finish. a fairly decent stout - clearly their ’’best’’ offering.

Dégusté a la microbrasserie. Couleur noir avec un beau col beige mousseux. Nez de malt grillé de chocolat et légèrement fruité, cerise un peu on dirait. En bouche très beau mélange chocolaté et encore une fois fruité un peu, manque un peu d’amertume et de corps. Leur deuxième meilleure bière après la brune selon moi. Manque un peu de travail mais cette bière a du potentiel.

En fût. Verre de 12 oz dégusté directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de café. Apparence: La couleur est noire. Présence d’un large col beige crémeux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de café torréfié et de chocolat. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de torréfacion en arrière goût. (Rating #4542)

In short: A competent basic roasted nitro-stout. Think “beefed-up Guinness”, that’s it
How: Nitro-tap at brewpub
The look: Black body topped by a large dark-beige head with good retention
In long: Nose is very roasted with light notes of herbaceous notes. Taste is creamy blackened cereals, milky notes, semi-corpulent body, some nice herbal hops, burnt toasts. Mouthfeel is a big fluffy expansive nitro bubble extravaganza. All those roasted stouts served uber-super-nitro tend to taste a bit similar so they become hard to rate. This one is surely without any problem and very drinkable, but also nothing special. I am one of the few "not cool" dude who thinks Guinness is not an atrocity, just a bland beer, and Cachotière was like a slightly more corpulent Guinness, quite drinkable to me. For a nitro roasted stout it is average, for a beer from La Captive, it is as good as it gets. I entered "Great La Captive beer" in my search engine and it came back with "Great La Captive beer beer cannot be found"…. Google really knows everything.

Drank on tap (325 ml) at the brewpub on July 14, 2012. Black, medium head. Coffee fruity aroma, not bitter. Dry coffee taste, hints of chocolate, dry bitterness. A some what fair stout!

My Bottom Line :
Coffee flavors and roasted bitterness are pretty much all of what’s going on in this bloated dark ale.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-Endlessly cascading nitrogenated foam eventually settles on the brown-edged black.
-This tastes like there is a very low percentage of dark malts, just enough to get a dark-colored brew...
-Nitro is overdone in this one, making the mouthfeel too airy, like drinking slightly liquefied whipped cream.
-Malts are the only purveyors of flavor and they are quite shy.

On tap at the brewpub.
