Lubiere (9998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2009
A clear dark brown porter with a thick lacing moka head. In aroma, a lightly smokey malt, with light chocolate notes. In mouth, an intense smokey peat, with notes of fennel, and light sweet maple. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel, almost silky. Nice. On tap at brewpub, April 8 2009.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2009
In short: A smoked and very woody/maple beer. Low sweetness level for the genre. Good and original.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head
In long: Nose is very smoked over a roasted maple tree aroma. Somehow the smoke gets lost in the taste and in the mouth it only feels mildly smoked. Taste is focused on maple tree. Not maple syrup, maple tree, it really felt like I was drinking a maple tree. The beer really feels woody, like a maple barrel aged beer!! Some roasted campfire wood and a light hint of chocolate. For the most part the woody character dries the beer out and it doesn’t feel too sweet, less sweet than most maple beer I’ve had. Only in the finish does the sweetness really sneaks in leaving a maple taffy after-taste. Totally focussed on the maple flavour yet very different from any maple beer I’ve ever had. Good (but not very good) and original. If you’ve never tasted a smoked maple tree and wanted to know what it tastes like then this beer is for you. And if you did taste a smoked maples tree, may I ask what the hell you were doing eating a smoked maple tree!?!

jgb9348 (4735) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2009
Pitch black coloured body with a nice brown head. Strong aroma of pit fruits, maple syrup, molasses and roasted malt. Medium-bodied; Strong malt flavour with sugars, caramel and syrup. Aftertaste bitter and nutty, showing some alcohol. Overall, nice and strong - the smokey flavours are pretty mild, barely noticeable. Good for the still chilly Montreal April! I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 09-April-2009.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2009
My Bottom Line:
This amenable Smoked Porter focuses on its roasted malts, wooden smoke and fruity esters before it lounges into a dryish, mildly bitter finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the dark brown with ochre highlights.
-Hop presence is quite low throughout.
-Pleasant cereal flavor add depth the the flavor profile.
-Smoke is rather levelled and the body nicely svelte, making for a very drinkable pint.

On tap at the brewpub.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 6, 2009
On tap, brewpub. I was intrigued by this offering, but unable to read French, I tried it without knowing any of the ingredients prior. Aroma is light caramel malt and smoke. Palate was thin for a porter, and flavors were a muddy, slightly astringent bittersweet chocolate and ash mix. Hmm, given how much I loved DdC’s Revenante, I’m not sure why this brew doesn’t work as well. Perhaps the maple lightened the body, and its flavors mixed strangely with the ash.

Quevillon (2501) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2009
Bu sur place le 5 avril 2009, en fut (20 oz). Brune brulée, peu de collet. Arome légé d’avoine malté, assez fumé, boisé et sucré. Goût d’orge malté fumé, aucune sensation d’érable quoi que ce soit et une finission très amère. J’aurais imaginé qu’avec l’érable dans ce porter fumé que c’aurait été un peu sucré, mais elle est plus fumé que la Revenante!
