Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
A deep dark brown ale with a thin brown head. In aroma, a lightly spiced and herbal caramel, with light ginger notes. In mouth, a rather strange mix of chocolate, light coffee and sugar, a bit thin, not what was expected. On tap at Rattle’n’Hum, Sept 21, 2012.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2012
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Spicy saison-like yeasty aroma with chocolate malts. The flavor has spicy yeast, dark chocolate malts, herbal notes, and light floral hops. Nice.

Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
In short: A bland oily black beer of some kind
How: Fresh growler shared with a few friends in a hotel room pre-RBSG 2011 tasting.
The look: Near black body topped by a small beige ring of head
In long: Strong nose of black liquorice, chocolate malts and sweet bakery stuff. Body is a bit thin, oily with low carbonation and flavors of tar, vanilla, black liquorice, dark fruits, yeast, some chocolate. Listing the flavour elements it seems like any other decent black Belgian ale however the whole thing felt a bit amateurish. Not much to enjoy here, not much to dislike either. Forgettable. This Canard Noir is nothing to be proud of and I find it pathetic how people seem to think that using a few french words will make something pathetic sounds classy. Oh well, c’est la vie.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Shared by ZDK at rbsg. Thanks. Brownish red with no head. Nose is malty with some light smoke. FLavor is ashy. Thin and slightly astringent mouthfeel.

beerbill (3333) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Growler filled at the brewery. Pours very dark brown, close to black, with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of fruity Belgian yeast along with lesser amounts of lightly roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is similar but favors more of the Belgian yeast and allows a bit less of the Black Duck Porter traits to come forward. Medium bodied.

tgncc (2751) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2011
The aroma is Belgian yeast, peppery, musty. Dark brown, light tan head on the pour. The flavor is Belgian yeast, roast, slight sourness. The finish is peppery, yeasty, sour, acidic. Medium to medium/thick in body. Decent enough. THe base porter (decent enough in its own right) more or less drowns in the flavor from the Belgian yeast.

Jow (2016) - New York, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Tap at the stags head. Pours black I had no idea what this was based on the name I was not thinking porter with Belgian yeast. U get fruity Belgian yeast, roasted malt, chocolate, and earthy bitterness. Pretty tasty
