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.

Speedy_Charly (108) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2015
Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Brune presque noire avec reflets de rubis, coiffée d’une mince mousse beige laissant une fine dentelle sur le verre. Arôme de malt torréfié (caramel), café et fumée avec un soupcon de chocolat. On retrouve toutes ces saveurs en bouche avec, en boni, la mélasse et une amertume boisée que le nez ne laissait pas présager. Moyenne de corps et longue en bouche, la finition est plus sèche et amère que ce à quoi je m’attendais pour le style. Probablement excellente pour accompagner un dessert chocolaté.

Stoned99 (288) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: toast, roasted malt, coffee, ashy. App: pitch black with small beige head. Taste and palate: full body, medium sweetness, long lightly smokey, bitter and alcohol finish. Overall: really well done, the palate is quite something: it’s sweet then well balanced between the smoke, bitter and the alcohol.

Boutip (4964) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle: Poured a dark black color porter with nice brown foamy head with good retention and some good amount of lacing. Aroma consists of huge amount of roasted malt with quiet a bit of chocolate notes. Taste is also dominated by loads of roasted malt notes with some chocolate notes and light dry finish with some green hops notes. Body is tad thinner then I was expecting with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Loads of flavors with an overall dry taste but avoiding the astringency territory.

wolffish (285) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2015
Wow! J’adore ce Porter!! C’est un pur délice tellement bien fait et équilibré. Tout y est: juste assez amère et houblonné, sans être trop sucré ou torréfié. On perçoit du bois brûlé mais ça demeure agréable. C’est terreux et peu dense. Version à 6.3% d’alcool...

Palate: Medium++ body, moderate+ carbonation, powdery.

Interesting.

On tap @ Dieu du Ciel. Black as heck in this imperial pint glass. Fuck u, get waxed. Roasty and ashy on the nose. Slightly earthy and leafy. Flavor is a touch on the bitter side. A lot of roast, coffee grounds, and licorice. Slightly ashy. A little bit of tea and roasted nuts. Not bad.
