COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This imperial stout, aged in bourbon barrels, gives notes of roasted malt on a coffee, dark chocolate and caramel background. The velvety palate is sustained by a sagacious amount of alcohol warmth that give this beer the taste and feel of a fine spirit.

De délicieuses arômes de bourbon et de vanille légèrement boisé. Des saveurs de chocolat, de café, de caramel avec un gout surette de cerises. Le goût de bourbon est présent sans être trop dominant. Une bière de dégustation de grande qualité.

Pours solid black with two fingers of fluffy beige head diminishing gradually to a half finger skim and heavy lacing. Nose is bourbon, oak, and dark roasted malt, with sweet caramel and vanilla in the background. Taste opens up with sweet malt and vanilla, with strong bourbon and oak, finishing with bitter coffee and chocolate. Heavy-bodied, smooth, and creamy. Oof. This is a massive, challenging beer. Complex and intimidating, it exhibits every bit of its 9% ABV right from the outset. Sweet and thick, it’s definitely a dessert beer.

L’aspect chocolaté se mélange bien avec le Bourbon. Vraiment une des top au Québec dans le genre.

Bouteille 750ml. Couleur noire opaque, mousse couleur lait au chocolat laissant un voile léger. Arôme de bourbon, vanille, boisé, café. Goût de bourbon, boisé, café noir, malt torréfié. Carbonation moyenne-faible, corps moyen, un peu collante.

This is maybe the best stout I?ve ever had. Good Lord. Thanks Dominic the alehunter for this liquid gold. Pours a somewhat thin black with lots of mocha head. Aromas are creamy and milky with red berry notes. Then vanilla, and milk chocolate come through. Flavors are so damn smooth. Milk chocolate and sweet vanilla. Like drinking a candy bar. A nice boozy finish. Finishes a touch thin and effervescent for a Stout.. But the flavor and aroma profile more than make up for it.

Rating #1073 - May 2, 2014 - bottle from Coop. Big bubbly black pour with a tan head that erupts from an aggressive pour. Aroma is heavy roast malt, caramel,mild vanilla. Taste is roast malt toffee sweetness, and an unchalky bitterness, medium-heavy alcohol character, but well tempered with the luxurious toffee sweetness. Impressive.

Gtan bella birra, dove le note di bourbon sono mersvigliose. Cioccolata, caffè, orzo e mirtilli, oltre il profumo di rose e bourbon che arricchiscono un bouquet già fantastico. Molto ben fatto

Sombre et impénétrable, sa mousse est plutôt fugace. Des notes très sucrées et chocolatées accompagnent le boisé des barriques de bourbon. Il y a un petit quelque chose de fruité également. Cette impression fruitée se répète en bouche. L’alcool ne pardonne pas et à chaque gorgée, une vague de chaleur enveloppe les saveurs chocolatées et vanillées. Très soyeuse en bouche, presque pas de carbonatation, c’est divinement bon. Un aspect vineux s’est étrangement pointé en finale, question de complexifier le tout. Juste wow.

A serious beer that you can go for when you need something good. A very tasteful experiment, a strong beer with the bourbon touch. Amazing.
