Objectively speaking: A soft porter of low intensity
I like: Unagressive. Smooth bodied. Clean. Easy to drink. No acidity.
I dislike: Not much character. Chocolate was barely hinted at. Very limited depth. A bit boring compared to what I’m usually drinking at Benelux. I would not one a second glass.

In short: Basic roasted porter/stout with a light chocolate flavour.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: black body with a very small tan head
In long: Medium body, medium roastiness level with a burnt toasts flavour. A little chocolate taste in the back but I expected a lot more of it for a beer described as a chocolate porter. Roasted malts really is the upfront taste here. Light hops presence brings a medium dry finish with only a mild bitterness. Not a bad beer at all but this is sub-par for Benelux. As complex as a Ramones guitar tablature.

Quevillon (2503) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
Bu sur place en fut (20 oz), le 14/2/08. Brune mélasse, mince collet. Arome légé de café et de réglisse malté. Goût de choco café très présant, un peu amère. Un porter assez doux!

En fût. Verre de 12 oz. à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de malt torréfié. Apparence: La couleur est noire opaque. Présence d’un mince co beige mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de café avec une pointe de chocolat. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement crémeuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Présence de café en arrière goût. (Rating #1470)
