I enjoyed this in a pint glass and allowed it to warm for approximately 10 minutes out of the fridge. An excellent example of the style. Minimal lacing and head. Distinctive chocolate and caramel notes. Wonderful as a dessert beer to pair with dark chocolate,dates, figs or spiced nuts.

Some have suggested it as a session beer but I'm not sure that I would want more than two bottles of it at a sitting. I whole-heartedly recommend you try it. Cheers (452 characters)

3.73/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

341ml bottle poured into a Trois Mousquetaires glass.

A : Black (obviously) with some light brown reflections. There is some lacing on the glass. The head goes down quickly.

S : Really light nose, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Nothing really special here.

T : Some sweetness from the malt, the taste is light.

The beer itself is easy to drink. For a beginner, this beer would be best to discover the type. (417 characters)

3.58/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours noire with a finger of creamy tan head. Aromas of creamy chocolate malt, burnt toffee and faint hops, a little sourness. Full-bodied yet crisp and refreshing with plenty of malt sweetness and a bitter bite of dark chocolate at the end. Lots of flavor and nice carbonation and at 5%ABV it’s not too heavy. I probably wouldn’t drink more than one but it’s not a bad beer. (381 characters)

4.25/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A : Pours a nice opaque black beer topped with compact beige head. Retention and lacing is medium.

S: Hum, interesting. Definitely can smell that ther seems to be good hops work in te recipe but the predominant smell is really the torefaction one.

T: Good! Reminds of fresh ground coffee and roasted nuts also. A good bitter taste but not to overpowering.

M : Light really but I guess that's alright for the style aimed.

D: Excellent. Not a so special beer, but a good localy brewed beer with flavor. That's a keeper in the fridge for these moments. (553 characters)

347ml bottle

A: deep almost opaque brown, finger of head falls off quickly to lace and ring on edge

S roast malt aromas of coffee, hint of chocolate

T roast malt coffee flavours open, rolls into tart mid pallet with smoothness coming through from hops and carbonation, and a tangy lingering bitter finish of coffee, chocolate

M Light-medium body, good carbonation enhances the creaminess of the mid pallet.

D An enjoyable schwarzbier, a good pairing with desert. (467 characters)

Picked this as part of the Les Trois Mousquetaires mix pack in Quebec.

A : A nice dark color with a beautiful three fingers creamy brown head. Look very appealing and looking forward this taste this one.

S : I smell a roasted coffee aroma right off, maybe also some woody character.

T : Dark chocolate feel with just enough bitterness. Touch of coffee toward the end

M : Very fluid and light body, not as thick I one could expect when pouring, carbonation is good

D : Very drinkable, I'd grab another any time. (515 characters)
