Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
Several months old version. Quite the black pour wearing a lasting light tan head. Not quite as fruity as I expected. This is a soft, round and sweetish, chocolatey offering. Fudge and nuts own most of the palate, but a grapey and plumy understated layer can be found underneath. Soft carbonation, medium, comfortable body. Moderate hops are still doing the job, bringing a healthy bitterness with leafy, earthy notes. Clean, well-balanced and most pleasant offering.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
In short: A very good smooth and round porter.
How: Tap at brewery. I think this batch is a few months old.
The look: Black body, medium tan head
In long: A touch of smoke on the nose. Taste has black liquorice, thick toffee, chocolate cake and some tropical fruits. Overall rather sweet. This one focuses on smoothness and roundness and not on roastiness and dryness. Some leafy green-ish hops provide a shy bitterness. There was a little rubber/band-aid flavour but it was very light. Full yet lean body with lots of small bubbles. Enjoyable sticky/syrupy mouthfeel. Nothing really stands out but this beer has many qualities. And if there is one thing I like about a beer it is that there is more than one thing to like about a beer.

riversideAK (6098) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2011
750 bottle shared by suzygreenberg. Thanks Ben. Nose is tart and almost vinous. Lighter dark malt sweetness underneath, but mostly oddly tart and seemingly off. Dark brown pour with a large rocky head. Flavor starts tart and lactic, stays that way throughout pretty much. Some roasted malts underneath, but definitely unintended sourness. Airy carbonation. Not bad, but not meant to be this way I would think.

Boutip (5829) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep black color ale with nice light brown foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of rich black chocolate with light residual sugar notes. Taste is also a great mix between some rich black chocolate with light roasted notes. Body is bit thin for style with great carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed with great drinkability factor.

PhillyCraft (5585) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Sample from bill at Prohibition Pig, dark pour with creamy head. Notes are a little thin compared to the bourbon barrel version I had a month ago but not bad. Notes of smoke, roasty malt or grain, dark fruit, sweet figs, and some rust in the finish. Not bad.

JulienHuxley (5578) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
750 ml bottle, fresh. Nice black pour with a thin creamy whitish head. Great aroma of milk chocolate, light grainy notes and fruit. Taste is sweet, lots of chocolate with some fruity fig like taste and a hint of roasted grain. Palate is smooth, relatively weak carbonation.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Draft. Pours a dark malty bruin body with a tan head. Malty dry with a nutty and roast y smoked tone. Dry wood and hint of coal. A drying smoky porter with a nice warming. Good.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Bottle at Volo. Opaque black with nice head. Some cherry pit and clean metals in the complex nose. Soft, low carbonation. Smooth. Licorice, soya, resin, balsamic, sour cherry. Gorgeous!
