Bottle at Seattle tasting. Dark body, thick super creamy brown foam. Bitter dish soap aroma. hugely bitter, very odd, bitter chocolate, astringent, a bit soapy-chemical. Strangely bad. Interesting but some really weird flavors here. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015

Beige light brwin head. Black beer.
Aromas of liquorice, roast, bay leaf, raisin, oat, light marzipan and light soy.

Low carbo, creamy close to silky mouthfeel, more than medium bodied.
Good beer! mcberko (17818) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2015
750mL bottle, sent from yourilevesque (thanks a lot, Youri), pours black with a huge tan head. Aroma brings out roasted malt and dry cocoa powder. Flavour is very roasty and rather harsh in this department - tons of roasted malt. Very dry, maybe a bit of cocoa. Not very complex but it works. Decent.

750 mL bottle poured at the tasting. Pours black with a tan foam head. Roasted malt aroma. What’s going on with the bitterness here? Ended up being a topic of discussion, as it seemed to be agreed upon widely. Lingers forever. Decent coffee and roasted flavors in there, but buried by bitterness. It has some good qualities for sure. Not bad. Ferris (15267) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2015
Bottle - Dark malts and some dark chocolate. Jet brown and a huge light brown head. Bitter roast and lots more bitterness and an overly bitter finish. HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
750 ml bottle from a little dépanner in Gatineau.
stef73 (620) - Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Appearance: Pours jet black with mountains of tan head. Exceedingly long retention and massive amounts of lacing.
Coffee, roasted malt, charcoal, magic marker.
Coffee, roasted malt, charcoal, burnt coffee grounds, cola and some vanilla.
Mouthfeel: Thinner mouthfeel with average carbonation.
Overall: A decent stout but thinner than many others I’ve had. Lots of flavours coming out but it just didn’t wow me. Perhaps a bit too bitter.
De couleur noir avec un étonnant couleur moka mais très foncé , on un avec un nez très cocholate Avevc un côté de torrification . C est très sucré en bouche à cause du chocolat qui très présent . On n’a une légère amertume en bouche qui complète le côté chocolaté . radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
