georgebrassin (176) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2010
750ml Bottle. Hazy black with large beige head. Aroma is chocolate, licorice, with some hint of coffee. Medium body with fizzy bubbles. Taste is coffee and chocolate. Good one.

arone12 (925) - 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.

riversideAK (6140) - 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.

Handbottle from the brewery. Pours a dark brown almost black with a big frothy beige head. Lot’s of carbonation. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla and dark chocolates. Taste is a bit fizzy, roasted malts, chocolate and some vanilla. Nice beer!

HopTsing (565) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
From the bottle poured a brown brew with a light white head. Aroma and flavors of malt and hops leaning more towards the malt.

AwaKe (235) - Laval, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
En fût à l’Oktoberfest des Québécois 2013. Couleur brun foncé, légère mousse brune. Odeur et goût dominé par le chocolat et les noix. Juste assez d’amertume, semblable à un café moka. Onctuosité intéressante. Bon produit.

DuffMan (9538) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle, corked & caged, shared with Robbie. Very gassy pour, nearly a gusher, dark brown, massive head. Acetic sourness and dark fruits, light leather. I’m certain this is infected, but the sour porter character really works for me.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Sample at the 2008 VT Brewers Fest - Poured a very dark brown/black in color with a small tan head. Small lacing on the glass. Aroma was heavy with roasted malts and dark fruit. Flavor was roasty with lots of fruitiness. Slightly sour and astringent at the end. Good beer, not a great one...

MJGG (952) - 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.

Lanchester (191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
On tap at Vices et Versa in a 12 oz tulip glass. Jet black in color with a thin ring of tan head. Has an aroma of coffee with chocolate and a touch of smokiness. The beer is quite thin-bodied yet smooth on the palate, notes of earthiness and bitter chocolate prevail. Finishes dry but leaves a refreshing impression on account of the light texture. I can’t say I was blown away by it, although it is a very nicely brewed beer and my first introduction to the style.
