4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: A complex roasted porter with good hopping. Very nice.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed when approximately 4 to 6 months of age. Bottle sent to me by oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Nose is has a pleasant rich toasted malt character as well has green herbal hops. Taste has succulent cereals, highly roasted and wrapped in luscious caramel, nice mocha, roasted cashews, burnt oats, notes of bakery chocolate. A decent amount of herbal-spicy hops that distracts the taste buds and washes the sweetness away. Lively mouthfeel with a big body and generous but never aggressive carbonation. Nothing original here but the execution is flawless, it is flavorful, a good complexity, a high drinkability factor. A 22oz that went down like a 12oz. Very much above average take on the style. Another nice bottle I got in a trade that was gathering dust in my cellar, I have way too much good beer in my cellar, so if you are reading this I hereby invite any ratebeerian passing through Montreal to drop by house and watch me drink way too much good beer.

Bomber pours coffee-black with a slim tan lacy head. This is a full-bodied porter with more chocolate and caramel going on than roasted malt notes. Overall, a very nice porter with a sweet, chocolatey finish.

Tap in SFO. Roasted malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate. Pours black with a thin light brown head and a bit of lacing. Starts with sweet chocolate flavors as well as a little bit of nuttiness as well. Finishes dry with good roasted malt flavors that linger on the palate. Decent porter.

Nose is tight. Mouth feel could pass for 3.5. Flavour wise it just barely hits all the marks.

Bottle... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, dense, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The aroma is a melange of chocolate creme, toasted tree nuts and vanilla. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is burnt and moderately bitter with a carbonic, charcoal finish. Well-crafted and cleanly brewed.

Pours a thin head on a black body.

The texture is thick with lower carbonation.
A superb porter.
