MJGG (926) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2008
Verre de 4 oz, d’un fût à la brasserie. Arômes de torréfaction et d’alcool. Robe noire, légèrement translucide, peu de mousse. Plutôt mince et douce en entrée de bouche, la torréfaction se manifeste en arrière-goût et est accompagnée par l’acool. Ce dernier est relativement apparent.

arone12 (907) - Maryland, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Pours a dark dark brown color with a light brown head. Smells of caramel Ann’s chocolate. Taste is similar. Chose this beer because it was made in Canada. Delicious coffee aftertaste.

Bottle @ RG 20. Brown with little head. Smells like grass, cherries, coffee and lemon. Light roasty and dry flavor.

punkska101 (806) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2009
750 ml dark brown bottle bought @ Grand Duc : Dense black, solid beige head that last , coffee / moka in nose, a touch of acidity balance by chocolate note

BiereLuc (765) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2013
Bière noire, peu mousseuse avec un nez agréable de choco-café au parfum légèrement grillé. En bouche, la bière est bière est douce, peu pétillante... mais explosive de saveurs malgré ses airs «tranquilles». Le café domine encore, soutenu par l’alcool qui prend juste assez de place sans tomber dans le mauvais goût. La texture est veloutée; les saveurs prennent un aspect liquoreux. Encore un très bon produit signé Hopfenstark.

LadySusan (716) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2007
On tap at Oktoberfest in Mascouche.The color is a very dark brown with a thick beige head. The taste and aroma is of malt and fruits. There is also a fineshing taste of sweet toffee that leaves a nice aftertaste.

Johnsense (704) - - AUG 5, 2011
bottle. Massive 4 finger head, cola black. Aroma of roasted malts, brown sugar, molasses, sauna wood. Taste is a fair bit sweeter than the smell with lots of brown sugar, burnt caramel, toffee, roasted malts, coffee with sugar. A tad sweet for my tastes - if you can find the barrel aged version it’s a real treat and blows this (and most other quebec porters not produced by LTM) out of the water.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2008

App.: Pitch black with reddish hues, light brown head with sticky lacing

Aromas: Light molasses, tootsie rolls, blackberries, cassis, blueberries, white chocolate

Palate: Acid, long lasting bitterness with a lightly sweet finish, slight lack of body

Flavors: blackberries, preaty much the same as the aromas

Notes: Very evolutive, subtile hints of a flemish sour.

bedainedebiere (500) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2009
750 ml bottle, although the label says 500ml, seen for the first time today in BDF, sold at 9,29$. Strong aroma, sweet, smokey, not too much to my liking. Taste is of roasted sweet malt, figs, black licorice, some fruityness, notes of smoke, pleasing, neither too harsh nor too heavy, with Texture is not too thick without being watery, pretty well-balanced. Moderate hop bitterness and roasted malt lingering in aftertaste. Goes down very well at 8 %, being not too high in ABV. Well done, enjoyable, expensive and quite worth it.

dandeman (451) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Aroma: Chocolate, roasted, nuts and coffee but on a very weak intensity. Appearance: Intense black with a café-creme head, average thickness, dense, with a very nice lacing. Taste: Attack is sweet with notes of milk chocolate, caramel, malted milk and honey. It is surprising how the roasted accents are not sticking out and by the same fact leaving a very weak roasted bitterness. Everything happens in sugars. Almost no wood, roast and smoke accents. Deceiving a bit.
