Lubiere (10438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2012
A deep dark porter with a thin lacing dark brown head. In aroma, a smooth roasted coffee malt with light nutty notes and floral hops. In mouth, an intense herbal roasted coffee with bitter chocolate, some very bitter and grassy hops, with metallic notes. Interesting. On tap at Vices et Versa, Feb. 10 2012.

Fresh bottle from Veux-Tu. This is a hoppy porter, with bold and zesty taste. Very Good drinkability and worth seeking out. Black coloured body.

MartinT (8127) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 My Bottom Line :
Toasted caramel malts, dark chocolate-like roasted malts and spruce-y hop resins join in this complex and highly enjoyable hopped-up Porter.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam covers the dark brown-edged blackness.
-Everything is superbly integrated; a flavorful, complex whole.
-This is as good as Smuttynose’s Robust Porter, if not better (less caramel, more toast and roast).
-The mouthfeel is creamy and tight.
-The resinous hop bitterness is leveled to the roasted malts’.
-This is one of Dunham’s best creations so far.
-Hops also share a potent floral signature from nose to finish.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at Brouhaha, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma of light roasted malt and bitter dry cocoa powder. Flavour is more roasted than the nose suggests, with lots of hops (not as much as the black IPA). Robust indeed, and well-balanced - through quite aggressive. Excellent stuff.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Another bottle thanks to Dany, this one for that thing that one time. With the duct tape. Pours a deep black with a thin to medium sized tan head. Big sweet roast on the nose, chocolate and cocoa, a touch of isopropyl which is odd. Medium to thick bodied, loads of roast. Nice depth, full of chocolate, and roast. Nice and easy drinking, tons of body. Picks up some charred malt notes into the finish. Rather tasty overall.

Boutip (4856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color porter with a dark brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light dry roasted notes with subtle chocolate notes. Taste is also dominated by dry bitter roasted malt notes with some subtle chocolates notes with light green herbal notes. Body is fuller than average with good carbonation. Overall this was enjoyable but not sure this should be rated so highly.

solidfunk (4474) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 16, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2012 Hahaha, I saw Lapatt and I thought some kind of sick joke is in order. I didn’t realize it was Dunham. Awesome beer. Smells super pungent, very thick malt and musky. Pours black with great head and lacing. Fertile and robust. Amazing porter, with lots of coffee taste and dark chocolate. Very sexy - best beer from this Montreal trip. Bottle from Delires du Terroir.

dmac (4204) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2012
11.2 oz bottle from the one and only glouglouburp. Poured a good looking dark black body with a foamy dark beige head. Aroma was easily my least favorite thing about this beer. Notes of wet burnt toast, dark chcolate, green leafy veggies, molasses, dark corn syrup, a slight touch of plastic overall. Medium body with a coating roastiness, average carbonation. Flavor is great, loads of roastiness, burnt toast, dark choclate, burnt coffee and cream. Excellent beer overall.
