COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bière d’un noir intense, coiffée d’une mousse moka laissant de riches traces de dentelle sur le verre. Nez généreux de café chocolat et de houblons herbacés. Ronde et crémeuse en bouche, l’amertume est soulignée par un trait anisé qui s’efface sèchement dans une douceur de sucre candi.

UXO (1656) - CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Pours clear brown with two fat fingers of medium dense tan head, good retention, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, herbal, slight smoke. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Full creamy body, moderate to low carbonation, clean dry finish. (4/5) Quite a nice dry Irish stout. Slightly smoky notes add an interesting complexity. I’d really like to try this on tap (or nitro) - I bet it would set up a nicer head and creamier body. (16/20)

jaseurboreal (23) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2015
2015-06-03 - Stout noire au gout de café, de chocolat et de houblon. L’amertume assez présente laisse quand même un léger goût sucrée

More then 1 type of chocolate,cigarette/ash in a creamy dry stout. Left the beer-1/2 way through- to answer the door(which took about 5 minute).The beer tasted "better" after being in the air for a bit- seemed to wake up.

maneliquor (3496) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This would have to be one of the best examples of this style I have ever had. Incredible depth and balance. Loads of milk chocolate, mild coffee, earthy and slightly ashy but that burnt characteristic follows through to the bitter finish. A treat to drink

Lilja (2975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2015
Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft kaffe, choklad, söt lakrits, rostade toner, soja och mörk torkad frukt. Murrig, rund och len, lagom sötma, fin karaktär och beska.

hawthorne00 (3672) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2015
Nitro tap. Black with a light tan head that coats the glass. Aroma of chocolate-malt, vanilla, bitter coffee, grass, light roast, herbs.Thin, vaguely milky texture - if nitro gives the illusion of body it’s a pretty scrawny illusion here. Mocha and vanilla are there, but what sweetness there is is rather sugary. Very dry indeed at the end with a fair bit of bitterness and strong grassy and anise notes that linger. Didn’t do much for me.

ele (8) - Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 28, 2015 does not count
Notes of dark chocolate and espresso, with a hint of vanilla. Amazingly complex aroma. Slightly sweet. Pitch-black in the glass with a medium brown head. Pleasant bitterness. One of the best canadian beers I tried.
