Bouteille 750 ml. 8%. Couleur brune-noire foncé rougeâtre. Mousse beige. Arôme de porto, malt, un peu de caramel-chocolat En bouche, douce, un peu vineuse, un peu de sucre, moins de choclat et café que je pensais...je peut même dire qu’elle me fait penser à un Barley Wine...très bonne.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Sweet and roasty malty aroma with some caramel. The flavor has roasted malts, dark fruits, toast, and a light malty sweetness. Well balanced. Nice.

BiereLuc (974) - 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.

radiomgb (2387) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2009
Dark brown in colour with a thin beige coloured head, no lacing. The aroma was sweet with some light chocolate, very faint hops, some burnt malts. The flavour is sweet and incredibly smooth, some coffee, roasted malts, very light alcohol. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium/light carbonation. Finishes long, dry with some hops.

A good porter, very light alcohol in the flavour but it never becomes a distraction, good balance.

Bottle at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
Sampled on May 30, 2008.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil: Very deep brown pour with a khaki ring of head. Rich yet soft aroma- some licorice notes and light vanilla under a predominantly chocolaty malt nose. Creamy body (all of his beers have a nice palate) Rich flavor but smooth- fudgey, only mildly roasted with a soft fruitiness from the yeast that meshes with the nice chocolty malt presence- light vanilla as well. A rich yet cohesive & easy drinker.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Tap at Mondial 2010. Pours a deep dark woody slight hazed brown with a decent lasting head. Aroma is very sweet, brown sugar, caramel malts, molasses, toasty nutty chocolate, spices, herbs and earthy notes with maple sugar. Flavor is maple, earth, big toast and leather with nutty dark chocolate, oily hints, tobacco leaf, sharp caramelized buttery toffee, tons of licorice and anise seed spice- moderately clean in the end though.

czar (4679) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
Sweet dark fruits, a bit too sweet to my taste. Medium to heavy body. Bottle kept on foaming forever. Anyhow, microcarbonation, toffee, a bunch of flavours. Ho.st rocks.
