COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La bière d’hiver c’est la Jean dit Laforge. Fort et robuste, il fabriquait de ses mains les outils des cultivateurs de l’île d’Orléans. Il était quelqu’un et sa bière... est quelque chose. Ses effluves de malt, de chocolat et de vanille vous le confirmeront.

mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2010
500mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, light cocoa, espresso and vanilla beans. Flavour is much more roasted than the nose suggests, very pronounced dark roasted flavours, with secondary tones of espresso, dark chocolate and vanilla beans. Very enjoyable.

Oakes (17684) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2009
Dark brown. Slight head. The aroma is minerally earthiness with some fun dark fruitiness. Somewhat chocolatey character, especially in the finish. A bit of raisin in there, with without the richness. Good brew.

3.5
Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2009
Imperial stout or imperial porter? Not too thick as a stout, yet clearly roasty. Pours dark, a modest white head. Roasty stouty, very consistent roastiness,and you can smell it. Overall like a 1.5 not imperial, some chocolate. Decent drinkability, there is some sourness in the finish that is strongly malted away. Significant nuttiness.

3.8
j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle from Bonisoire that I brought to a tasting at Andy’s. Pours a solid black with a medium beige head. Wood, hops, molasses, chocolate, plums on the nose. Thick, partially from the carbonation. Sweet, and touches of chocolate. Ends with a nice bitterness.

4.1
daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2009
This hard to find gem was provided by Glouglouburp. This is the first rating of this beer outside Quebec!!! Black pour with a light brown head. Aroma is pure chocolate decadence. Some fruitiness is detected as well. Flavor is full of really nice chocolate, dried pears and some roast. damn this was fun to sip.
