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.
