Le liquide est noir de fume et sa mousse a un aspect crmeux et dense. Prsence dune dentelle sur le verre. Les armes dtects me rappellent la raison pour laquelle jai toujours ador cette version propose par le brasseur du Cheval Blanc : les effluves de torrfaction qui surgissent doucement des entrailles du liquide entrainent avec eux des parfums lgers de chocolat sucr. En bouche, le liquide prend beaucoup dexpansion et caresse la langue en laissant, hormis ce got particulier de lavoine, des saveurs de torrfaction qui rappellent davantage le caf. En finale, le liquide, a la texture granuleuse et veloute, laisse derrire son passage de notes amres correctes de grains brls.

Draught at Le Cheval Blanc. Pours black with an average to large lasting creamy/frothy tan head and good lacing on the glass -- looks lovely. Great aroma of roasted malt and coffee foremost followed by lactic notes and light leafy hops. Delicious flavour of roasted malt, coffee, cream and some chocolate. Average bitter finish. Medium+ bodied, creamy mouthfeel. A wonderful Oatmeal Stout -- I loved it.

pint @ pub. Pours very dark with a nice tan head. The aroma was pretty neutral, malt on the nose with some roastyness coming through. The taste was malty and chocolate, tasty. Over all this is a nice stout but not stellar.

On a nitro tap at La Cheval Blanc. Pours a deep black with a medium tan head. Deep roast aromas and a touch of chocolate. Thin (due to the nitro) and smooth. This might be better without the nitro. Nice roast flavors. Ends with a long roasty bitterness. At 4.5% this would make a decent session stout (if one could tolerate the bedlam that is La Cheval Blancs bar scene I couldnt), though the bitterness may be a bit heavy handed for that. Tried all 8 of their beers on tap when I went, and this was the clear winner, by quite a bit.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 In short: A commercial black cake in a pint.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Black body topped by a medium persistent tan head
In long: Timid slightly roasted nose. Fluffy/foamy body. Taste of roasted dark malts, black chocolate, some lactic notes, light coffe hints. More precisely this beer really tastes like a generic black cake. Everything from the taste, mouthfeel and finish reminded me of a *DANY* Dunkin Heinz black cake. Nothing special about it but this is a reliable beer and a regular of the Cheval Blanc lineup and as such this beer has become my late-night fallback choice. This beer and my ex-girlfriend phone number.

Above-average beer (though only average stout) enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub.Cold coffee that has been roasted but is creamy, definately affected by the nitro-tap treatment. Astringent bitter yet still well malted. Coffee aroma. Grainy and creamy mouthfeel. Surprising 33 IBU and under 5% abv.

[523-20070811] Tap @ Cheval Blanc (Montral, QC). Coffee roasted malt aroma with some nice hints of nut. Black body with a quick foamy light tan head. Flavour holds roast bitter coffee malt with a nutty background and a sweet finish. Medium-full body. Not too heavy, the balance of bitterness and coffee and nuts is interesting.

Nitro pour - Opaque black with creamy beige head. Roasty malt aroma, burnt malt also. Creosote. Roasted/burnt malt flavors balanced with some hop presence. Mouthfeel a little thin, a little too acidic - Not bad.
