Pours a brown so dark it borders on black. Thin mocha head.
Aromas are from heaven, with dark chocolate, black coffee, plums, raisins, booze, molasses, brown sugar, figs, and plenty of deeply roasted malts.
The mouthfeel is creamy smooth. Tastes are pretty much the same as the aromas. Think plums soaked in dark chocolate sauce, with a roasted slightly bitter swallow..
I can’t think of a single thing I would improve on for this beer, so I’m about to give it my first perfect score. HenrikO (49) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2013
Backlog rate. Absolutely wonderful imp chocolate stout. Dark as sin, small dark milk-chocolate-colored head. In-your-face hops as well as a lingering dark chocloate/coffee bitterness. czar (9615) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011
on tap at the brewery. pitch black with a creamy tan head. roasted coffee, more and more coffee, dark chocolate, hint of vanilla, creamy and silky, light carbonation. warming alcohol and a powerful grassy and resinous finish. a good brew! Gluepot (759) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2016 On tap at Les Brasseurs du Temps. A rich black colour topped by an appealing tan head. Strong roasted coffee and some booziness in the nose. This is an imperial stout of large tastes. Heavily roasted coffee, roasted malt, chocolate (not too sweet), molasses and a touch of vanilla. The booziness in the nose carries over to the taste, adding some nice warmth. There is a moderate bitterness to the finish, working with the aforementioned roasted elements. It is full bodied with a slightly creamy texture. This might not be your beer if you like hyper blended understated Imperial Stouts. But it’s right up my alley.

Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewpub, on May 1st, 2011. Very black, medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate coffee really malty, well roasted. Taste of dark chocolate cake with hints of strong coffee, a little spicy with a good bitterness. A solid and enjoyable Imperial Stout!

Tap from their bistro. Wow, what a beautiful beer. Big huge up front hit of coffee, chocolate. A nice bitter finish. Pours very dark with thick tan head. Big and thick in the mouth. Maybe my favourite beer from these guys. georgebrassin (176) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2012
Deep black with a brown and reddish head. Aroma is dark chocolate, cherry, roasted malts and coffee. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavours is fruity at first, cherry, raspberry. Then chocolate with a roasted coffee finish. C2H5OH (64) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2012
750mL bottle; bottled on 11/08/2011. Pours jet black with a huge, creamy off-white head. On the nose we have cherry, dark chocolate, lactose, coffee, and a hint of vanilla. Taste is dark fruit, 90% dark chocolate, and coffee followed by a nutty smokiness and some grassy hops. Very nice balance between sweet chocolate and roasted bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the thin side with good carbonation. Finish is long and bitter leaving dark chocolate and plum. A delicious brew with a lot going on and an emphasis on bitter flavours. There is a nice oaky/nutty/smokey character to it which complements the roasted coffee well. cfrancis (3612) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2012
Pours inky black with a thick brown head. Aroma is big roasted malts, some coffee and hop flavouring. Taste has a nice upfront hop bitterness with loads of roasted malts, great full mouthfeel and some coffee in the aftertaste. Another great beer.
