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.

341ml bottle. Pours a fair amount of foamy brownish head and has a deep dark brown appearance. Ok lacing. Aromas of burnt malt, mild coffee and hops. Has a woodsy aroma as well. Flavours are quite sweet, some strong coffee notes as well as light chocolatey hints and some earthy hops. Subtle hints of vanilla in the finish. Good retention. Has a slick and oily mouthfeel. Good stuff!

Dégustée en compagnie de Pierre Rousseau. Bière que j’ai dégustée en bouteille après la connaître presque par coeur pour l’avoir bue en fût à la brasserie à chaque fois qu’elle y est disponible. La bière est noire et la mousse off white onctueuse et très collante. Les dentelles que je vous sur mon verre dessinent une fresque aux détails inouïs! Les riches arômes de café torréfiés et de noisette grillée viennent presque à bout de mes sens. Je ne puis résister. En bouche l’équilibre entre rondeur, saveurs maltée et houblonnées est parfait! Je passe du caco au malt rôti avec émerveillement! La bière est à mon avis plus facile à boire qu’en fût (et surtout en cask!) de part un léger vieillissement qui l’adoucit pour le mieux. Difficile à battre dans son style!

Metalchopz (2665) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Enjoyed at the St-Jerome brewpub. Pours a dark brown colour with a beige-mocha head, good retention and lacing. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and vanilla aromas. The hops really show in the taste with a big grassy bitterness over the roasted malts. Notes of bitter dark chocolate and hints of vanilla, coffee that lingers. Quite a nice brew with a stouty nose and a big bitterness in the taste.

Another delicious effort from an always reliable brewery. Pours black with just a hint of brown on the edges, limited head and spotty lacing. Nose is coffee and roasted marshmallow. Flavours of coffee, dark chocolate, some marshmallow. Taste med sweet medium bitter. Full creamy body with medium carbonation and lasting sweet bitterness in the finish.

Swaroga (1826) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2015
The beer is overall delicious. But a bit narrow on the cappuccino side. Dairy and coffee with toffee sweet. Medium thick and smooth mouth feel. I wouldn’t mind to come back to this beer again. It’(s one of those beers we feel craving for time to time. Nice.

kevinsenn (1561) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle. Wonderful aroma of coffee, chocolate, some spice and dark fruit. Super rich flavour; bitter chocolate and butter coffee, with an even more bitter finish. Alight dark fruit nitws creep up over time. Full super smooth body. Has the flavour of a 10% abv stout, but without the booze (only 6.3%, it says in the bottle). I am a fan.

Draught (7.5%) @ Lambic Foeder. Rated on 25.06.2015
Single dry malted by oh6gdx
Aroma is very nice with strong tobacco, ash, syrup and licorice. Flavour has syrupy malt, ash, licorice, tobacco, well-roasted coffee and some mild herbal notes. A tobacco and ash overdose but I love it. Excellent stuff, only 7,5% and full imperial stout features. Perhaps slightly too herbal and salty but it definitely is the only flaw here.
