Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Getestet beim LCRBM Leicht süßer und nur mäßig rauchiger Antrunk. Dieser Ton nimmt nicht zu, die SÜße allerdings wird stärker und wirkt teilweise störend. Ausgeglichener wirkt das Bier mit dem Eintreten eines herben Tons. Nachtest (Noten z.T. angeglichen): Aromatisch rauchiger Geruch, Schinken, würzig und angenehm. Sehr dunkler Malzantrunk, kaum rauchig, sehr würzig. Im Nachgeschmack deutlich rauchiger, daneben nach Bitterschokolade. Test vom 11.9.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,10,10,9,5,11 - 10,00

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2007
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti et assez fumé (bois et bacon), de chocolat noir (traces de chocolat au lait), légèrement fruité (notes de raisins, traces de mûres) et avec des notes de houblon herbeux et de café. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et et une texture riche, plutôt crémeuse et aux petites notes huileuses. Goût légèrement fruité (raisins, traces de mûres et de prunes sucrées) accompagné d’un goût fumé (bois et bacon, présent toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût moyennement amer de malt rôti (légèrement brûlé et aux petites notes terreuses) et de chocolat noir puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût de café noir accompagné d’un léger goût de houblon herbeux asséchant. Post-goût assez long et sec, moyennement amer de rôti/ brûlé, de chocolat, de café, léger de houblon herbeux et avec des petites notes fruitées (moût de raisins) ainsi que de faibles traces métalliques.

Pours a deep black color with a thin light brown head. Very good aroma of peat smoke, wood, and chocolate. Very good flavor of peat smoke, wood and chocolate with a bitter and dry finish. The body is light with a syrupy texture and gentle carbonation.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2007
Opaque black pour covered by a large and lasting, uniform beige head. Potent, very aromatic, woody and well-smoked porter. Cakey malts through and through where the smoke keeps the roastiness at bay. Excellent smooth body. No fruitiness noticeable, but the softest alcohol kiss reaches the drinker towards the finish. Somehow found it a bit less enticing than the filtered Grand Chef, I don’t know why, perhaps simply because of the incredible freshness of the filtered when I had it.

Bottle at LCRBM3. Black colour with lasting tan head. Roasted, intense malts. Really drinkable. Lovely, superb malts. Good grainy feel on the end.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle at LCRBM3. Absolutely superb. Black viscous body with a tan head. Amazing coffee and dark rubbery malt. Lip smacking bitter dark chocolate and just a delicate lick of smoke. Excellent balance and chewy thick but not cloying. Fanbloodytastic.

3rd LCRBM. Aroma has coffee, chocolate, sugar and a nice smokey touch. Brown-black coloured with a lasting, brown head. Taste is sweet, has some chocolate bitterness, some fruits, some coffee. Siruppy, thick texture. This is great stuff!

JorisPPattyn (7722) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2007
Dark brown-black; yellow-beige rim for head. Wood, smoked but very refinedly, like a very expensive, lightly smoked ham. Very dry, a taste of wood and sweetwoods, gradually building up. Again sweet ham, honey-cured, and a touch of green apple-cyanide. Very good smoked porter. I cannot help it, but I usually like René Huards beers, this one is no exception.
