Bottle BB July 2006.. extra thanks to turg! Poured a thick, oily black.. with deep brown highlights. A towering creamy caramel head and a great deal of intricate lacing were also present... just beautiful! Dark chocolate, espresso beans, mocha, and fresh oats blended for a phenomenal deep roasted nose. Flavors of bitter dark chocolate, freshly-ground coffee, and just lots of black maltage... beautifully roasted and complex, especially considering the low ABV. Smooth and perfectly dry on the palate... long roasted chocolate and coffee finish... lightly sweet. This is a most excellent brew!
Bottle at Banquise, Montreal. Deep brown pour with a small head. General knackered caramel. Some watered-down mocha. Drinks sort of thin. Gentle toasty malt. Mild chocolate sweetness. Raistlin (499) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2018
My favourite stout. Pours a midnight black colour about half a finger of brown head. Nose is burnt coffee and roasted malts. Taste is mainly coffee and dark chocolate with a nice hop bitterness. Has a nice balanced finish. Perfect amount of carbonation. Body is heavy, yet smooth to drink. xist_ (12) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2017
473 mL can from my local LCBO. Pours rather thick, with a decent sized brownish head and a jet black colour. Aromas of coffee mainly, but also chocolate, toasty malts and maybe a little bit of oats. Tastes of coffee and chocolate, with a very smooth and thick body that transitions very well into the finish which is rather bitter. It goes down really easy, and I absolutely love it. This is a lovely beer, and I'll for sure be drinking this again in the future. bdleedahl (649) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 29, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Rated so high on here because it's clean and the oatmeal is so crazy strong, and works. More body would make it a fantastic beer, but it's reasonable for the low abv. Nisse666 (8153) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2017

Aroma is a bit weird: besides the nice coffee and oatmeal notes, there's a hint of fermented dark fruit, hazelnut and chocolate. Taste is medium bitter and roasty, with dark chocolate, ash, dark fruits,and the finish is bitter and dusty. There's some fermented fruit in there as well. Good. Kovalchuk1739 (19) - - DEC 6, 2017
Très foncé; pas trop amer; superbe goût avec des touches de café; odeur torréfiée. Bonne noire.

Bottle pours black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and some dried fruit. Taste is chocolate and coffee. guzgorog (973) - FRANCE - NOV 5, 2017
Robe noire, fine mousse. Nez fortement torréfié : grillé, café et chocolat, on distingue l'avoine. La bouche est dominé par le chocolat, le café et le grillé. Le houblonnage apporte une amertume agréable, corps assez léger, bonne longueur. Un bon stout à l'avoine, classique mais très bien fait ! the sauger (135) - La Pocatiere, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2017
Canette de 473 ml. Couleur noire avec un joli col brun. Arôme de café et malt torréfié. Goût de café, de chocolat, de malt torréfié et de céréales. Bonne stout traditionnelle.
