One of the best. Frothy pour. Nutty chocolate aromas which segues to rich bitter coffee flavors. Frudel (252) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2017
Big bottle from LCBO. Dark opaque beer with a beige head. Nose is roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate, dark coffee. Taste is kinda harsh, not that much sweetness, hell of a roasted malt, ashy, kinda unbalanced, would need some aging. Korcz (3389) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 3, 2017
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Dość wytrawne, mocno palone, wysoka goryczka, lekkie nuty kawy. jksipa (991) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2017
Bottle from the LCBO. Pitch black under a frothy long lasting khaki head that leaves a ton of lace. Nose is roast, dark fruits, coffee, chocolate, and some nuttiness. Flavour follows the nose with a light+ dry sweetness leading to a medium+ coffee and chocolate bitterness and a hint of cherry tartness. Mouth is medium+ and creamy with soft carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. This is a big beer yet the alcohol is well integrated.

651ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a massive frothy creamy brownish head that sticks around fairly long and has a dark brown appearance. Great retention. Lively carbonation. Aromas of dark roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Flavours are mostly of the malt variety, lots of chocolate and coffee notes, cocoa and roasted malts, some spices as well as notes of dark fruits. Smooth and slick mouthfeel. Abv is very well hidden. Good stuff!
VDuquerroux (1767) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - APR 24, 2017
Bottle, 12 fl.oz. Home. A pitch black beer with a medium beige foamy head ; good retention and lacing. Roast, black chocolate, coffee, caramel note, bourbon (?). Medium round sweet, light to medium dry bitter refreshing ; nice balance in a warming atmosphere, acid note. Voluptuous body, oily texture, soft carbonation to flat, bittersweet roasty chocolate lasting finish. Overall, awesome ! Fantastic :) DonGregorio (475) - POLAND - APR 22, 2017
Bottle. Black colour, durable beige head, great lacing. Aroma is dominated by roasted malts with notes of coffee, some cocoa and dried dark fruits. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter, coffee, dried dark fruits, cocoa, slightly earthy, heavy roasty. Medium+ body, average carbonation. Good imperial stout, but rather unbalanced and simple. SONOFWODEN (71) - New York, USA - APR 21, 2017
Pours with some head, about ¾”, not as much as I had hoped. Aroma is of a dark Coke. Good taste with just that bit of bitter at the end. Yeah, it’s very good. SuperTiti33 (891) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2017
Noire. Belle mousse dense. Nez intense de torréfaction. Café espresso. En bouche: belle équilibre entre l'amertume et le sucré. Légère chaleur d'alcool. Café corsé. Grain torréfié. Malt chocolat. Finale sèche et amère.

Flat with a unremarkable texture. Taste doesn’t resound - it just sort of trickles through without a memorable after taste. Initial taste sort of reminiscent of cardboard.
