A pitch black beer with a thin "nitro" dense brown head. The aroma is slightly roasted combined with slight chocolate notes. The flavor is rather mild with notes of coffee, leading to a nice roasted dry end. Nice, but I’d like more power. omhper (25953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2002
Dark black. Full bodied, soft maltyness, chocolate and salty liquorice flavours, lingering bitterness. mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
Nitro tap at L’Amère à Boire, pours black with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma of subtle roasted malts and some toasted nuts - no coffee or chocolate qualities. Flavour of smoothly roasted malts, which are very subtle, bittersweet chocolate and not much else. Medium-bodied and smooth-as-hell mouthfeel from the nitro pour. Very good, but missing a bit of oomph / flavour. Oakes (19416) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Near black appearance; appetizing toffee & smoke aroma; smokey, fruity, creamy, hint of alcohol, nuts, coffee. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 3, 2015
On tap @ L’Amere A Boire. Black pour with a khaki head. Heavy roast and ash. Some hints of smoke and a bunch of coffee. Kind of chocolatey, I guess. Some burnt nuts, too. Flavor is pretty heavy on the smoke, actually. A lot of coffee grounds and some sweetness of graham cracker, and cocoa powder. Lightly acidic on the finish.

Draught, 7.5% at the brewpub. Black colour, small stable creamy brown head. The flavour is sweetish with some chocolate. Alcoholic aftertaste, but rounded off by some oxidised port notes. Low carbonation. Quite good and quite well-rounded. Lubiere (14247) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2004
Deep dark beer with moka creamy head. Bitter chocolate aroma. Nice bitter choclate taste, with alcool warmth and creamy mouthfeel. Biody is superb! Tasty stuff. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Black body with tan head. Aroma is sweet, coffee, light chocolate. Taste is strong coffee, sweet, roasty/smoky. Full body -- impressive for such a "low alcohol" imperial stout. j12601 (13298) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 9, 2009
On tap at L’Amere a Boire. Pours a jet black with a creamy mocha head. Caramel, roast, and chocolate on the nose. Plum, chocolate, pear, and a little sweetness. Finishes with a sweet light bitterness, akin to a good chocolate milkshake, with a bit of alcohol coming through at the end as well.

On tap at the Brew Pub. Poured a black color, with brown edges and a small sized off white head. Chocolate, dark fruits, roast, and some bitter coffee finish.
