355ml bottle pours reddish brown color with a frothy off-white head that settles to leave a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate with hints of pepper. Taste is roasty malt bitterness with some chocolatey sweetness and light hoppy bitterness finishing with a nice amount of cayenne pepper. Medium body and some nice carbonation leaves a nice feel on the palate. I truly enjoyed this brew. patricks110 (2495) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2011
Heartstopper pours a ruby highlighted black with a thin cap of beige head leaving small spotty lacing. The nose is sweet and robust with a strong chocolate note. Hints of mild hops, roasted malts, coffee and a hint of alcohol. The middle is nicely sweetened with a prominent chocolate malt and a nice roasted malt. The finish has a dry roast and mild bitterness in the aftertaste. This has an absolutely awesome chocolate and roast taste. The body is a bit thin for my liking, but this is still an awesome brew.

Pours black with a bit of an off-white head on it, but it doesn’t last too long. Aroma is predominately of rich dark chocolate with a hint of spice in it. Taste is quite sweet and malty with a noticeable dry bitterness and pepper kick in the finish. Medium-full body, a little thinner than expected on the palate, and lively carbonation. Overall an excellent and unique stout, quite enjoyable. JulienHuxley (5807) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2011
Bottle, merci Émilie. Nice black pour, off white foam with light lacing. Lightly smoky nose, quite chocolaty, light vanilla. Taste is very chocolaty, lots of nuts and a bitter english hop finish. Palate is nice and creamy, medium carbonation. This doesn’t taste so fresh, I think it is fading a little but it’s definitely not bad. Fred82 (2324) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2011

12oz bottle poured into snifter. Super dark pour with a very black hue. Aroma is full of chocolate, malts and fudge. Flavor is a tad boozy with hints of chocolate and slight oak. Very enjoyable and I’m glad I got to taste this. TracksideBeer (34) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2011
Pours black with a small brown head that leaves minimal lacing. Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate with a hint of cinnamon? Chocolate really comes through with a slight pepper burn on the finish that lingers for a while. Not much carbonation while the mouthfeel is a little light. Overall great beer. Extra points overall for surprising me with the cayenne pepper! rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2011
Description: Stout Aromatisé au chocolat, vanille et poivre de cayenne brassé par Paddock Wood pour le Sherbrooke liquor store. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2011
Comment: Bouteille de 341ml partagée avec Patrick.
Visuel: Ce stout est brun très foncé, la mousse est beige.
Olfactif: Le nez est très odorant. Les effluves de vanille, de cerises, de fraises et de poivre s’entremêlent.
Gustatif: La bouche est intense, ronde, le chocolat est bien présent, il y a de la vanille et du café. La texture est huileuse. La finale est piquante.
Résumé: Un cocktail aztèque à partager.
Note: 7/10 pour la qualité pas pour la facilité à boire.
(From Vertical Bacon Strips) The general aspect : Black body with a ring of foam. Light lacing. The nose : Full of milk and bitter chocolate. Fresh vanilla pod and light peppery perfume. The taste : Flavors are sweet – fudge, vanilla, flavored coffee – but quickly hit by hot and spicy flavors of pepper. The mouthfeel: Very nice palate. Medium body. Very soft carbonation. Silky texture. The finale: Nice heat on the taste buds. The appreciation: Chocolate and pepper: a bold and brilliant marriage. thb (829) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 11, 2011
Impenetrably black. Head is quite brown, quite plentiful. Aromas - principally roasty malts, but there’s also some dark chocolate. The cayenne shows up in the nose too. Flavour opens up with roasty malts, dark chocolate makes an appearance. Finish is bitter roast and significant pepperiness at the back of the mouth. Lightly carbonated. Quite an oily mouthfeel.
