Poured from a best before June 2018, 5.5 abv. Had Feb 2018
Opaque black with a 2 inch brown head that thins to a persistent ring after a few minutes.
Smells of chocolate and toasty coffee.
Nice and dry with toast, coffee and chocolate. Well balanced and not sweet.
Some warming alcohol, medium carbonation, a bit on the thin side but a nice stout easily found and inexpensive.
St Ambroise is better but this is still worth a try. Makes a terrific pulled pork or slow cooked chicken!

Decent stout from Boreal. Doesn't really venture into new territory but does fit the bill as a winter warmer. Alcohol has a heavier prevalence. On tap at Le Hibou in Wakefield QC.

Boreale Black Velvety Dry Stout


The look of it: a black colour. With half of finger of head.


The smell of it: Some coffee and chocolate with a touch caramel.


The taste of it: some expresso with a touch of chocolate. A little bit watery. Not as good as the Saint Ambroise. A bit disappointed on the taste. The smell is definitely much better

So overall would I recommend it? As a black beer and a stout beer. No
As a regular beer. Yes.

This is available in grocery stores and dépanneurs in Quebec - i.e., pretty easy to get, even when coming over the river from Ottawa. I know this is a stout, but it really reminded me of a porter, i.e., a little bit thinner body. Totally drinkable, good taste, could become a winter standby.
