Poured out like a dark Guiness, black with a cascading light brown head, thick and creamy. The nose was wonderful freshly roasted and ground coffee, cherry, a bit of chocolate, alcohol, and a bitter/sour component, marvelously balanced.The taste starts like a hug amount of the best most deeply roasted coffee you've ever had, then goes sour and bitter before coming back with a slightly bitter coffee finish. There's a hint ofalcohol heat and some cherry along the way. The mouthfeel is in my opinion what makes this beer. It is at once creamy and smooth as well as crisp and clean. It's a big boy of a beer, but it was a great treat.
As far as I know (or frankly, as far as I could understand the waiter who served me), this beer is only available at the Brasserie in Montreal. They do bottle it, but it's not allowed to be taken off the premesis. There are apparently plans to expand the production facilities and distribute the beer. My waiter said sometime in the spring it should be more widely available. Also, a big thanks to him, it wasn't on the menu, but he managed to snag me one from their private stock in the basement.
