On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. A aroma of vanilla and a light roasted malt. The flavor is dominated by sweet vanilla, yeasty, coffee, a light roast. A bit thin, but overall nice.

[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.

Decent stout. Better than a guiness. A little malty, a little nutty bitterness. Some roast aromas. Not very sweet really. Pours pretty black. Notes got sketchy by this time of night. On tap at brewpub.

blankboy (7482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
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.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2004
Black, dense nitro tan head. Roasted coffee grains in the aroma, slightly creamy and chocolatey. The same profile keeps going on in mouth, rather lactic, very quaffable. Mild and refreshing stout, easy to take and well made, but on the counterpart a bit thin.

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.

On tap @ Le Cheval Blanc (Montral). Black with a creamy beige head (fully lasting) and good lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, nuts, English hops, mineral & earthy notes. Taste is slightly sweet with coffee, roasted malt, nuts, earthy/mineral notes and a light lactic presence (not disturbing - well integrated). Light body. Creamy mouthfeel. Very good Sweet Stout. The only "problem" is the body, its too light / not creaming enough or I dont know what, but theres something missing to make the beer more consistent.

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.
