A heck of a porter, on tap a Bar Hop 2nd day late on tap. Black, head, great roast and hops aroma and delivers on taste.

11.5 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a small tan head that settles into a wispy film and ring with some spots of lace in the glass. Notes of toasted and roasted malts, burnt brown sugar, candied nuts, earthy hops, and a bit of floral and citrus zest. There’s also a faint hockey puck note in the aroma. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a toasty, roasty, bitter mouthfeel. Good beer.

Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla, coffee, muscovado. Taste is vanilla and milk chocolate, dark chocolate bitter finish. Body is (too) light but creamy and smooth.

Apparence: D?une couleur noir opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse caramel d?une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble très légère avec des bulles de très petite taille. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt chocolaté avec des notes de rôties et de fruits (figues). Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps ample. Au goût, c’est des flaveurs de malt chocolaté avec des notes de rôties. Finale moyenne, avec une aucune effervescence et une amertume résineux moyenne. Commentaires: Excellent, toit simplement excellent! J’aimerais mettre ma mains sur la recette pour voir la touche Dieu du Ciel sur une Style déjà excellent. Fiche technique Style: Impériale Stout Format: 341 ml Taux d?alcool : 6,3%

Noire opaque aux rares reflets. Nez de café cendré. En bouche, le liquide est rude et amer, sans être réellement houblonné. J’ai l’impression que ce soit les grains torréfiés qui s’expriment presque exclusivement, sans trop laisser de place à la subtilité et la délicatesse des houblons.

11.5 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a clear reddish cola brown color with a small disappearing beige head. The aroma and flavor have chocolate, hazelnut, roast, coffee, earthy bitterness, the hop character is there but more earth general bittering rather than distinct flavors, nice finish. Definitely more porter than black IPA.

11.5oz bottle, big thanks to mathieuc for sending this during Free Beer Week. Notches are 0-2, bottled 01/15. Shared with phaleslu and alexsdad06. Wow, awesome big aroma, much more complex than expected. Hazelnut, touch of smoke, vanilla, earthy hop, some piney spicy hop. Good coffee. Moderate-plus sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Good bit of earthy hop, but it’s not like a black IPA (which is more what I was expecting). Hazy dark brown color. Thin darker tan head, leaving good bits and dots and ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick. Really interesting, tasty porter. Much more complex than expected.

Noire à la mousse crémeuse, laissant une dentelle soignée. Des arômes de grains grillés, de café espresso, de mélasse et d’herbes, tout dans une belle harmonie. En bouche c’est une amertume propre au café noir qu’on perçoit tout d’abord, accompagné d’élans fruités.. C’est légèrement acidulé, herbacé, poivré avec des pointes résineuses. Une texture soyeuse qui rend le tout bien agréable à boire avec toutes ces particularités. Excellent. (Version à 6,3% Embouteillée en Janvier 2015) (1395-060415)
