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.

Draft at TRT while I sopped. Poured a pitch black body with a small bubbly light beige head. Aroma starts off with burnt toast, dry dark chocolate, earth, newspaper and some nut shells. Medium to fuller body with softer to average carbonation and a lingering earthy aftertaste. Flavor is basically the same as the aroma with a touch of burnt coffee beans and a strong earthy nut shell finish.

Nice, smoky porter. A Texan bbq in beer form. Aroma is lacking, which is a real shame.
