Black. A rich mocha colored head, very dense in construction. Coffee aroma backed rich roasted malt. Tastes very similar one of my homebrew stouts. Roasted barley, Coffee, ever so slight hints of coffee. Roast is dominant. That being said the coffee is more a kin to a roasted barley imitation of coffee and not the actual coffee bean itself, even though there is real coffee in this. Charred would be an accurate description. Lactose makes for a thicker richer feeling body. Overall a nice beer although the advertised non typical elements (Coffee, cocoa nibs, lactose) don't play as much of a role as i kind of feel they should.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice thick tan head that dies down moderately and leaves some spotty lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet roasted malts, coffee/espresso, some mocha and rich dark chocolate.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet roasted malts, bitter coffee/espresso notes, a hint of mocha and milk chocolate.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/med carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

A - pitch black, thumb of thick dark brown had held nice, lacing was nearly a consistent ring
S - big dark chocolate notes, milder dark roast coffee, nutty and light licorice accents
T - like the nose the chocolate takes hold, then espresso and roasty falvours build, very mild dark fruits with touches of licorice
M - mediumish body that seems to thin out through the middle, has a sticky aspect to it but is bordering on a porter type feel, just a touch of heat in the chest
O - I really enjoy the big chocolate and roasty presence of this, seems like a dessert beer to me but would work as a nice cold day sipper

Props to joemcgrath27 for including this in our latest trade.

A - Pours pitch black, finger of head with some retention and no real lacing.

S - Rich milk chocolate, hints of fresh roasted coffee, marshmallows and graham crackers.

T - Much like the nose, loads of milk chocolate, the marshmallows come through alongside hints of espresso and a lingering burnt sugar and cocoa sweetness. Unique s'mores like aftertaste lingers on the palette.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - A very tasty coffee stout, definitely more on the sweeter side, which some might find offensive, but not me! Would love to have this stuff readily available, but that's a pipe dream.

12oz bottle from J.A. Moisan Epicier (Quebec City). 2.79. Best by 03/13. Served in a Southern Tier snifter.

Pours black with one and a half fingers mocha head that leaves small clumps of lace.

Smells of roasty creamed coffee and chocolate syrup.

Taste follows the nose. Very sweet chocolate syrup, creamed coffee, roast malts, vague dark fruit and an ever so slight hop-like pine bitterness on the back end. Flavor never deviates far from that initial syrup and sweetened coffee.

Medium full feel that approaches creamy with decent carbonation.

This stout is what it says it is but Sourhern Tier need not fear being replaced/usurped. The flavors seem just a little too artificial. I finished that bottle and feel there's no need to ever revisit this one. Ticked.

341ml bottle, part of a mixed pack currently available in Alberta. Brewed with mocha coffee and cocoa beans, in homage to the beer-loving porters of the London docks back in the day.

This beer pours a solid black abyss, with ever so slight basal cola highlights, and three fingers of billowy, puffy light brown head, which leaves some sudsy chain lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells quite prominently of bitter, earthy coffee - sort of espresso-like - dry, flaky chocolate, roasted malt, and some watered down Kahlua warming notes. The taste is more forward with the bittersweet cocoa powder, the milky cold coffee character staying fairly solid, some toasted caramel malt still barely playing second fiddle, with a dash of spirituous heat, and some flat earthy, leafy hops.

The carbonation is pretty sedate, just a dull hum if you really look for it, the body a mostly sturdy medium weight, with a straight-up smoothness - a bit of milkiness aiding the cause. It finishes on the sweet side, the chocolate overload continuing its run, the zingy cuppa-Joe essences holding fast, and everything else just kind of completing their own private fade-out.

An agreeably tasty stout, beefed-up as it is with the dug-up relics of the original recipe. The coffee and cocoa flavours are strong, yes, but spread well enough around to even be appealing to those of us who avoid coffee shops like the plague, but still share the general public's affinity for all things chocolate.

Thanks for another great Quebec beer, Papat444. I can't believe I haven't been to Quebec yet! Must go soon.

Appearance. Pours black with half a finger of brown head.

Smell. Coffee liquer and a bit of hershy's chocolate syrup. along with a little malty roastyness.

Taste. Lots of bitter dark coffee, some quality dark chocolate, just a bit of fruityness, cardboard, and smokey dark malts. Just tons of flavour.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, medium+ carbonation. A bit sticky.

Overall. Tastes like a bunch of coffee went in to this one. Good stuff.

Got this at Intermarche St-Roch in Quebec City. Really good grocery store for craft beer in the city. Go there if you're looking for something.

From a bottle into a snifter

APPEARANCE: A black pour yields a small, medium looking, tan or light mocha colored head with decent retention. Head quickly fades to a faint wisp and ring. Black body with zero carbonation evident. A splotchy wisp and ring remain leaving dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Roasted malts, nice mocha coffee aromas, and some good dark chocolate. Some vanilla caramel notes show up along side the mocha coffee. Bold enough, and interesting.

TASTE: Not nearly as good as the nose. Watery flavor. Some roasted malts, then some watery coffee flavors come afterwards. A mild and persistent aftertaste with watery coffee, some cream, a touch of chocolate, then some weak bitterness limps in as well. Watery and not enjoyable at all. Did I mention this is watery and lousy?

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Creamy enough, goes down fine and finishes dry on the palate. Feel is okay, but the flavor is just garbage. Slightyly atringent in the end.

OVERALL: Lousy. Watery, stale coffee with an overly astringent finish. Beer doesn't have to be like this. It can be good. This is not a good example of a coffee stout, so pass on this and try something else.
