C’est Guinness, mais meilleur. Très bon goût roti et de café, avec un arrière goût légèrement amère de chocolat noir. Bravo!

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2007
Bouteille. Couleur noire opaque, mousse beige dense, collant au verre. Arome très houblonné, florals, malt torréfié et chocolat. Goût torréfié, mais dominé par un légère amertume et un goût de houblons anglais très floraux et puissants, un délice. Finale sèche et en amertume. Corps moyen à plein avec une effervescence moyenne à faible. Beaucoup aimé.

(1.9L growler)Really opaque black, almost no head. Chocolatey aroma, some roastiness, a touch of coffee, maybe a hint of soy sauce. Burnt chocolate flavor, nice hop bite. Quite satisfying.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
Robe noire aux reflets bruns surmontée d’une mousse beige persistente. Arômes de café, de chocolat et de malts caramélisés. Saveurs de café, malt torréfiés et de houblon aromatique et amérisants. Bel équilibre. Belle rondeur.

on bottle and on tap. Deep black color with small foam. rosted malt aroma. May have hints of chocolate not sure. Great present bitterness. Loved more bottle than tap.

heemer77 (5344) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 5, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2006 Sampled at Mondial 2006. The body was black with a light tan colored head. The aroma was classic with coffee and chocolate. There was also some sweet pancakes. The taste was a lot of coffee with a hint of dark chocolate and a hint of bread crust. Definitely English type hops (Fuggles?) character. Very dry with lots of roasted cofee. Good stuff.

GRM (3953) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2006
Brown bottle, 500 ml, expiry date: June 2006; eye: opaque black with a nice cappuccino head, head persists mainly as a ring around the glass but also with an "island" in the middle, lacing; nose: roast, caramel and the hops that brings a welcome freshness to balance the smells; mouth: starts like a sledgehammer of roasied malt that gradually fades, it is the only taste up to the finale, as a finale the roasted malt is still present but it is accompanied by a somewhat aggressive bitterness but also cocoa and caramel, astringence is also perceived in the finale, quite bitter, very lightly swee, full body, slightly oily and watery texture, nice carbonation; overall: quite enjoyable FRANÇAIS Bouteille brune, 500 ml, date de péremption : juin 2006; oeil : noire opaque avec une belle mousse cappuccino qui persiste sous la forme d’un anneau autour du verre et d’une « île » au centre, dentelle; nez : torréfaction, caramel et le houblon qui amène une touche de fraîcheur pour équilibrer le tout; bouche : débute comme un coup de masse de torréfaction qui s’estompe graduellement, c’est même le seul goût perçu jusqu’en finale, en finale on perçoit toujours la torréfaction accompagné d’une amertume un peu aggressive mais aussi un peu de cacao et de caramel, astringence aussi en finale, assez amère, très légèrement sucrée, pleine en bouche, texture légèrment huileuse et un peu aqueuse, bonne carbonatation; en résumé : bien aimé

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 Any first impressions?
-A quietly receding gigantofoam tops the tawny-tinged blackness.
-Roasting coffee beans reveals a discreet black chocolate sweetness within.
-Energetic minty green hoppiness dances with the dry malt roastiness.
-The fluffy carbonation and lean maltiness offer plenty of drinkability.

What if you dig deeper?
-That wooden, leafy hop bitterness sure is pleasurable.
-Trickling vanilla sporadically sweetens the important roastiness.
-When drinkability and flavor are maximized, enjoyment cannot be far behind.
-Solace is gained at the taste of a well-made, lively pint of stout.

Bottle; best before March ’07.

Eructoblaster (4098) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle - 500ml. Opaque black body topped with an average frothy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with grainy, coffeeish and chocolate hints. Its well balanced taste shows more robustness and sharpness than the aroma. It leaves a long bitter/roasty aftertaste. Very good example of a Dry Stout.
