jercraigs (10258) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2008
2008-05-30. Black body is near headless but for a small brown ring. Modest sweet malt aroma, muted alcohol and roast. Flavour is sweet rich malt with light bitterness from the hops and roast malt that grows linearly across the palate, lingering long into the aftertaste. Smooth medium to full body. Simple but solid, leaves a lasting rich dark malt impression. Nice. Bottle, Mondial, Montreal, 4T

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Pours pitch black, with a small, light brown head. Smells of thick, rich, roasty malts, chocolate and caramel notes, and raisins. The flavor is very sweet, with quite an alcohol presence linked to it. Lots of thick molasses and syrupy malts join forces with the powerful chocolate, to give this beer a very thick consistency and rich mouthfeel. This was much better than I had hoped for from this brewery. Very nice brew.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle. Dark, opaque pour with a thin tan head. Coffee, chocolate, hops, banana in the nose. Sweet smelling. Bitter hoppiness, round finish. Acrid smokiness and fairly tannic. Minimally boozy but warming in the chest. Sweet again. Tasty but not well balanced. Silky but oily palate.

Sammy (11849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2008
At Mondiale 2008. Dark wth crowning bubbly head. Lots of small bubbles. Some roast and coffee, a bit drying. The taste is a cross between a roasted stout and a dry Irish stout. Licorice is significant. Medium plus mouthfeel, a bit creamy. A sipper, good ingrediants but not very drinkable.

22oz bottle, courtesy of jasonp. Thanks, Jason! Pours a dark, slightly oily chocolate-brown color; medium-tan head with patchy lacing. Chewy milk chocolate, nougats, and roasted malts in the aroma; chewy, soft, chocolate-forward stuff. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy roasted malts, milk and dark chocolate, and lots of charred / slightly burnt malts; not terribly astringent, mostly chocolate and nougat; just not really worth the alcohol. Medium finish: chocolate, roast, and some nuttiness.
