SuperTiti33 (733) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Noir. Avec un fine mousse beige foncé. Belle effervescence. Très riche pour son pourcentage (7%). Goût prononcé de chocolat noir. Forte amertume, autant houblonné que torréfié. Trace de sirop d'érable. Fine chaleur d'alcool. Subtile note de bois et de whisky. Café espresso. Cacao. Très bien équilibré dans son style particulier. Absolument sublime.

750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours black with a small tan / brown head. Nose brings out shit tons of whiskey, cocoa powder, and some light roast. Flavour brings out loads of whiskey barrels, dry cocoa powder, and alcoholic notes. Quite light-bodied, whiskey-dominated, and boozy, but still somehow elegant. Good stuff.

dresden (1064) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
Black with huge foaming brown head. Roasty aroma, chocolate, light ash, faint wood. Great malty taste, complex flavours of caramel, smoke, vanilla, follows by a smooth whisky burn. Fantastic beer

mathieuc (1818) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Pours a dark brown with a beige head that leaves great lacing. Aroma is roasty, ashy. I could not really perceive the whiskey but felt a boozey warmth. Taste is sweet and quite bitter. I didn’t expect so much roasted malt character and its accompanying bitterness. Some whiskey do make an appearance upon retro-olfaction but it certainly isn’t assertive. Lingering boozy/roasty/ashy finish. Body is medium but the medium-high carbonation make it feel lighter than that. It would be smooth if it wasn’t of the boozy bitter finish. Not too bad but overall a letdown from the usually awesome Dunham.

RickTheRick (547) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
Un nez typique au style porter où la torréfaction et le chocolat dominent amplement, cette version vieillie en fût de whisky canadien a également de bonnes effluves d’alcool fort lorsque qu’on s’approche le museau près de la mousse très généreuse qui en découle. En bouche, la présence du whisky est plutôt discrète, mais faites entrer de l’air dans votre bouche pendant que votre gorgée y est et c’est à ce moment que la magie opérera! Un beau produit avec une belle rondeur et chaleur, mais je m’attendais à un peu plus.

12 oz bottle as an extra from tom10101 thanks man!! We got a bleeder fizzy foam is spraying all over the place! After letting things settle down I pour it into a snifter, lots of thick creamy head, aroma is soy, hops, coffee and a little bit of oak. Very well balanced, a little bit of soy, some coffee a bit of oak but more pronounced than the aroma, with a gritty mouthfeel. Very well done.

Rastacouere (6153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
Clearish coffee coloured ale wearing a generous tan froth. Pretty balanced aroma in which minty, earthy, peaty whisky notions complement the roasted malts and come to overcast the arrogant hops from the base version. Minty chocolate angles are quickly met by a firm nutty toastiness. The whisky is a constant part of the equation, but never ventures into the overly corny or vanilla laden territory, hereby remaining polite, woodsy, spicy and smokey. It pairs nicely with the ensemble, though I can’t help but miss the fragrance and freshness from the regular and more affordable Lapatt. Pleasantly enough, up until the finish, interesting dark fruits along the lines of raisins, blackberries or black currant manage to peak through and add a vinous component which removes from the otherwise fairly alcoholic profile for a 7% brew which has lost a bit of body in the wood-aging process. Tasty stuff, well elaborated, but not something I’d drink regularly.

AlainG (1391) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
Ce porter est fidèle à son genre en ce qui concerne sa couleur. Sa mousse est épaisse, beige, dense et persistante. Des traces baveuses se colle au verre. Le grain grillé se signale instantanément. Un aspect boisé suit, accompagné d’arômes de fruits séchés. En bouche, c’est acidulé, amer, alcoolisé et sa bardasse pas mal. Un effet d’engourdissement dans les mâchoires. Après un moment, cet effet est minimisé et même annulé.Le whiskey apporte une variante intéressante, mais elle n’optimise pas vraiment le produit. C’est toutefois très bon. (818-180913)

Very smart strong porter. Thick dark brown appearance,a little retained head, not so much Canadian whiskey, enough to generate a Decent aroma, a hint of whiskey. Above average mouthfeel. Excellent porter. Like a big beer, very good with food, fish and meat. Very good drinkability.
