La Vache Folle Porter revisite ce classique des styles brassicoles né au 18e siècle en Angleterre. Le houblonnage traditionnel au houblon Fuggle est complété par les saveurs grillées et épicées de la chicorée. Le résultat : une bière de réconfort aux reflets «feuille-morte» pour accompagner la féerie de l’automne!

500 ml bottle. Clear deep dark ruby hued brown, big beige lasting froth. Earthy caramel aroma, some chocolate. Taste is sweet medium roast c-malt, woody and spicy, some herbalness, milder hints of dark fruit and chocolate. Average carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Nice winter warmer.

sudomorph (966) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
500ml bottle. 8 months old. Pours nearly black with a one finger, khaki head that leaves mild lacing. Aroma has notes of caramel, dark fruits, and something else. Kind of like woody barrel characteristics. Taste is balanced but a touch sweet. Mild caramel, dark fruits, and again, something else. Almost like root beer. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty smooth and clean in the mouth with a slightly dry finish. Overall an interesting brew. Caramel and dark fruits paired with something I can?t put my finger on.

Metalchopz (2713) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours a cola brown colour with a creamy warm beige head that lasts quite a long time and creates thick, chunky and creamy lacing. Big aromas of molasses at first. Then, some dark fruit, roasted malt with hints of hops in the background. Caramel and plums ends up being the smell that stays. Oily mouthfeel, quite slick. Smooth tasting with some roasted malt and dark fruits, but quite mild overall. The head is still sticking around... beautiful. Very good drinkability as the mouth is quite smooth and well-balanced.

Bouteille de 500ml embouteillée le 1er octobre 2013. Un liquide brun foncé avec une mousse brune. Un nez de café et de cerises, c’est agréable. La bouche a une belle texture passablement grasse. C’est frais et facile, digeste à souhait. Les saveurs chocolatées sont fort agréable. C’est facile à boire.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle, thank you Colin! Pours an overflowing lively dark brown, ruby red, with a foamy white head. Lots of dark fruit, plum, fig in aroma. Medium decently carbonated body for the style . Lots more dark fruit, fig in taste, plus some leather, wood, and fruity sweetness. Hints of roast and even smoke. Old school porter here - really enjoyed it. Complex flavours, very drinkable, no hint of alcohol.

Odeur chocolat/réglice, beau col mousseu brun, légère et fraîche en bouche, léger caramel, très plaisant arrière goût dans les même ton.
