Lubiere (9728) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2011
A deep dark porter with a thin brown head. In aroma, a pungent bourbon barrel, wood coming out nicely, wood extract, cork, in your face. In mouth, a tobacco laden chocolate, with molasses, metallic hops, wood extract, a bit too much for me, but a nice challenge. On tap at the brewpub, August 13, 2011.
