Pretty good porter. Lots of chocolate, some grape juice, and cocoa. Slick mouthfeel and a nice tan head.

Bouteille 650ml sous le nom de "GLB Project X Harry Porter", courtoisie de johnsense. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de café, de malt rôti, léger de chocolat noir et de crème brûlée avec des petites notes fumées (tourbe) et de houblon herbeux aux faibles traces terreuses. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture léger-moyen crémeuse. Léger goût de crème brûlée (faibles notes lactiques) avec un léger goût de malt fumé (fumée de bois, traces de tourbe) et quelques traces de vanille lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt rôti et légèrement brûlé avec un léger goût de chocolat noir ainsi que des traces de mélasse brûlée puis à mesure que l’on progresse vers la finale, un goût de café noir vient se rajouter jusqu’en finale, où il est appuyé par une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux faibles traces terreuses. Post-goût long et sec, moyennement amer de rôti / brûlé, moyen de café, léger de houblon herbeux et de chocolat noir avec de faibles traces de fumée de bois.

On tap @Imbibe - deep lushious brown-black ale with a frothy 2 finger cap. Aroma is pungent roasty aromas over light sweetness with some grassiness. Sturdy body, very smooth and viscous. Flavor is coffee-cocoa maltiness with enough bittering to ballance light sweetness vanishes in the long wet bittering finish, nice roasty snap at the end. A world class porter every bit as good if not better than Meantime. Well done GLB!

probstblueribbon (3053) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
Half point at the Loon. Deep brown black with a small mocha head. Decent black coffee and dark chocolate, cold and tight, a touch of tang, a touch smokey. Medium body with plucky effervescence. Reasonable coffee, a little leafy hops stern and stark, a little molasses and a touch of smoke; dry with decent bitterness and a fair long black coffee finish.

Bottle from.the brewery. First thing I noticed is that it is a little thin, even for a porter. A pleasant porter, a little on the sweet side, but nothing particularly distinctive about it.

550ml draught
6.2% ABV
I tried this beer on draught at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a coca-cola colour with a creamy tan head that lasted. The aroma was weak roasted malt, smoke, molasses, and coffee. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was slightly sweet malt, some dark fruit, smoked wood, and coffee. A very good porter.

Tap CW. Very dark and dark brn cap, smell smoke and rich coffee-cocoa. Taste coffee-cocoa and impressive dryness of hop with trail of smoke and roast. Finsih becomes a bit green, rather a big porter that could stand some age to smooth it.
