This is an okay dry stout. Not as full-bodied or rich as a true stout should be-- especially a craft-brewed stout. Reminded me more of a porter. SimonB (66) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - DEC 1, 2004
(Bottle). Very small light brown head, fully diminishing. Dark brown body. Roasted, caramel and a bit smoked? in aroma. Moderated bitterness as initial flavor then more heavy bitterness (from roasted grains) toward the end of average duration. Medium body, lively carbonation. A bit simple but fair. Sampled at MartinT’s place with other RateBeerians for the "Montreal’s Voyager Par Les Papilles’ first tasting session". pineypower (3330) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle from Spirits Lacey. Pours out a well carbonated, almost blackcolor with a small, close to white head. Aroma is of light roast, some chocolate, and light bitterness. Taste is light roast, a good amount of baker’s chocolate, light sweetness and some lingering bitterness on the finish with a note of some dry chocolate cake. Overall not bad, but the body is lacking. b3shine (8875) - Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bomber to snifter (thanks dudeabide). Looks good; cola with thin off-white lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate. Tastes like is smells, only milder, with an average mouthfeel. Decent beer. Drake (13741) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2015

Nov. 28 2004 at MartinT. Deep dark opaque with no head. Light fruity chocolate vanilla aroma. Roasted coffee with light smokeyness, medium bodied, fair stout. Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Could be a good beer, but it is definitely overhopped. The nice chocolate and mocha flavors are quickly kicked aside by an assaultive bitter hoppiness. Remedy that and you’ve got yourself a very nice beer. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle at Chez Claudine’s in Stowe, VT. Pours a black color with a brown head and brown sediment floating about. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is pretty dry and toasty. Mouthfeel is a bit thin...some bitterness at the end too. Just ok...not my stout style. garthicus (2929) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 16, 2008
HogTownHarry’s bottle - App: Deep black with a wispy head. Aroma: Coffee, chocolate, raisins and cream. Flavour: Bitter, coffee, peat - quite thin all the same. Not bad. QuezXLV (423) - Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Dry this one is ... There is some bitterness in the aftertaste that quickly disappears. Medium weight on the palate and lively carbonation.
