Above-average beer (though only average stout) enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub.Cold coffee that has been roasted but is creamy, definately affected by the nitro-tap treatment. Astringent bitter yet still well malted. COffee aroma. Grainy and creamy mouthfeel. Surprising 33 IBU and under 5% abv.

A- Nice speckled lacing. Rarely seen lacing like this before. Brown and Black. Head lasts very long and when it did settle I was still left with a good centimeter.
S- Sweet roasted malt, resulting in dark chocolate and day old coffee. Hops once it gets to room temp.
T- Roasted malt and hops in their most basic but enjoyable form. Watery.
M- Quite smooth with it's low to medium carbonation. Gets pretty thin near the end of the pint, probably due to fading carbonation.
Not delicious, but well worthy.

Wanted to drink an enjoyable stout (since DDC hadn't any that night) so I went to the CHEVAL BLANC after a long hiatus. At first, smell was strange. I tought it smelled butterscotch and coconut liquorice roll. It seems they wanted to play a little with their repice because the taste was also very different since last times! At first, I was shocked: It tasted like dry charcoal and very roasted hops. But it grows on you! So I took another one. A beautiful creamy body... maybe it's more a Sweet Stout than an « American Stout » ? Who knows...

I was hoping for a black beer, but when this turned out to be a Stout, well, I wasn't disapointed in the least. Beer when served was very black and opaque, topped with a cappacino looking head. Aroma was fruity and of good dark chocolate. Mouthfeel was interesting...comes across as very creamy, but the beer itself is a bit watery. Still good though, as it is full on with roasted coffee and mocha flavors, very good and tasty to drink.

Another great Montreal stout! This one is a dark opaque black colour with a small but dense tan head of creamy foam. The aroma is of buttery maple syrup, roasted grain notes, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. This is very roasty and malty with some nice chocolate/coffee tones and a mean hop bite in the finish. This is like a sweeter/grainer version of Shakespeare stout. A little sweet/buttery for my tastes but still damn good!

(maybe they changed the recipe, but on the menu it said Oatmeal stout..is it the same?)
black beer, with a dense light brownchocolate head.
laces on the glass.
smell torrefication of the malt. some chocolate
taste is a bit special, with a evident nut flavor. You get the chocolate and torrefied taste as well but with another dimension.
mouthfeel is very smooth and quite dense texture, medium carbonation. a creamy beer.
drinkability: really good stuff.
