Toute en café et en chocolat, cette stout à l’avoine possède une texture crémeuse. Sa couleur noir opaque laisse prévoir un goût de torréfaction et l’amertume d’un bon café expresso.

Tiefschwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig, Kaffee, Schokolade. Geschmack röstmalzig trocken nach Kaffee, leicht würzig und herb.

Thanks to Patrick in Montreal for an IP trade on this one. Poured into a Meantime goblet (Mar ’12) at room temperature to a rich black colour (dark chestnut brown when held to the light) and a good fingers worth of creamy tan head which soon reduces to a small pond atop the glass. Smells of sweet chocolate, roasted malts and a pinch of aniseed in the background. Tastes of milk chocolate, roasted malts, a slight coffee flavour but all about the chocolate for me. Great mouthfeel to this beer. Medium bodied verging on fuller bodied, surprisingly so for a 5.2% beer with a great creamy feel that really massages the throat as it goes down. Little carbonation - spot on. An excellent stout full of flavour showcasing that beers don’t need to be 8% plus to carry this level of flavour! Also excellent at room temperature and no need to cool this one!

Lubiere (13183) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2009
A deep dark stout with a thick moka head. A pungeant chocolate and hops aroma. In mouth, a silky light chocolaty malt, nitro pushed, overall a bit light. On tap at Brouhaha, June 20 2009.

Bov (12273) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2012
from le Mondial de la Bière 2011, Strasbourg - dark black beer with a modest foam let; solid aroma of cold coffee, dark chocolate and licorice; medium-bodied and with some sweetness; a light tart bitterness and a long chocolatey and coffeeish aftertaste

Bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has lots of lovely chocolate, light nutty, a bit of liquorice. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of good fat chocolate, quite a solid liquorice notes. A bit of grainy coffee and cocoa. Elegant.

On tap at Vices & Versa. Pours a deep brown to black with a large dense beige head. Soft roast and cocoa on the nose, a touch of warm cereal and coffee. Medium bodied, coffee and bitter cocoa, roast. Nice and smooth. Lingering bitter cocoa on the finish.

DuffMan (9747) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2011
On tap @ the brewpub, enjoyed as part of their "compass style" degustation tasting tray. Nearly opaque with sapphire highlights and a permanent brown head. Rich roast and coffee aroma. Earthy coffee and bitter chocolate flavours, a little ash. Light acidity and a medium bitterness lift the palate at the end. Excellent dry stout.

50 cl bottle @ RIP Camp.
Pours black color with a beautiful, large beige head. Aroma of dry chocolate, cocoa, some dark fruit notes, lots of hops and some hops. Flavor of chocolate, cocoa powder, some plum notes, faint vanilla, hops and wood. Dry malty and chocolaty palate. Decent.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Growler notes: this expertly crafted Stout juggles full flavors and drinkability with aplomb, delivering plenty of roasted coffee bean flavors and chocolate in a comfortable body made for sessioning.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the darkness.
-The bubbly yet peaceful effervescence increased drinkability, somewhat replicating the objectives of the nitrogen usually added in tap versions.
-Wooden, citrusy hops peer through the finish, which itself is mostly a continuation of the pleasant malt profile.
-This may not be the most complex Stout out there, but we do not need complexity all the time. A beautifully made pint of Stout can be just as rewarding.
-The nitroed tap version was a lot fruitier (grapes) and slightly tart throughout, not showcasing the chocolate and roasted malts all that much. Good, but not as satisfying as the version with regular carbonation.

From the growler (3.6) and on nitro tap at La Fabrique (3.4).
