BeerBeCue (103) - Montreal, Quebec, - OCT 5, 2012
341ml bottle poured into stem glass. Pours a very deep black with a tiny head which quickly fades to good-sized ring. Aroma ivery roasty and coffee-like with some black chocolate notes. Taste is light-medium bitter from the roastyness. Body is medium with a thin-slick texture. Carbonation is very soft. Finish is slightly astringent with some slight bitterness, but of course nothing compared to their black IPA. Overall, a good robust porter, but I’ve had better. I’m thinking about Hill Farmstead’s Everett here but I guess the comparison isn’t very fair. Pretty enjoyable but it doesn’t stand out that much.

Dark brown with foamy beige head. Coffee, chocolate, floral citrus and malt dominate nose. Bitter, mildly stinging in mouth with lasting aftertaste.

Bamsen78 (4388) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2015
Draught @ Vices & Versa, Montréal. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Clear aroma of roast, with notes of malt and estery touches. Bitter, roasty flavour, with notes of coffee, malt and hops. Estery hints in the otherwise roasty finish. Well-balanced and very enjoyable.

TET (2099) - FINLAND - JUL 7, 2015
A black beer, a head is very big and light brown. Aroma has balanced coffee and roastiness, some vanilla and liquirice, also sweetness of chocolate. Aroma is just great. Taste is powerful, liquirice, dry roastiness, nice bitterness. Overally, the taste isn’t so balanced as the aroma. Medium bodied, the carbonation is almost too much. The stronger body would be also ok. Overally, the great porter, nice flavours with good balance.

Alengrin (3221) - BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2015
Canadian robust porter from Québec, with an opaque, jet black robe and dense, moussy, yellow beige, stable head. Aroma is very meaty and very malty with a refined, very subtle sweet touch: I get hints of bitter chocolate bars and fondant, strong espresso, veal stock, leather, charcoal, pipe tobacco, smoked herring, roasted chestnuts, dates, vanilla extract, brownies, orange peel, salmiac, faint banana, even some candied apricot; no off-flavours here, not even phenols. The taste mirrors the aroma perfectly: a refined, subtle suggestion of candied fruit sweetness, candied dates, even a brief whiff of candied cherries, but almost immediately withdrawing and making room for a bittering malt profile, bitter chocolate, cold black coffee, in a soft, slightly ’zingy’ (metallic), slick texture; there is a sourish touch too, but dull and basic. The malts, thickly layered, render more bitterness than sweetness with even a drying smoked accent, an effect reinforced in the finish by drying, peppery, leafy hop bitterness. The basic sourishness lingers a bit, along with a strong coffeeish malt ’roastedness’. Dry, sturdy porter, but as with many modern porters, I do not see any reason not to call this a stout, because that is basically what it is... In any case, a very enjoyable black beer.
