mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
On tap at Vice et Versa, pours a very dark amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma is characterized by cocoa powder, with some secondary charcoal notes. Flavour is very stale and coal-like, with week-old stale coffee that pretty much dominates, a bit of muffled coal notes on the finish. Quite poor, with no real depth or pleasant subtleties.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2011
Dégustée en fût au Vices & Versa à Montréal. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti doux, moyen de café noir avec des petites notes de chocolat noir, de houblon herbeux et de malt fumé. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement crémeuse. Très léger goût de fumée de bois accompagné de petites notes d’anis et de traces de fruits (dates) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt moyennement rôti avec des notes de chocolat noir puis en finale l’on retrouve une moyenne amertume provenant d’un léger goût de houblon herbeux et de café. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux, moyen de rôti et léger de café. (hiver 2006-07)

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 17, 2011
draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo. dark black pour. Roasty aroma. taste is roasty upfront but followed by an unpleasant acidic sourness. Dirty feeling mouthfeel. Strange porter

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2010
750 ml bottle; thanks to fred82 for the trade; slow gusher with foamy tan head; clear, dark brown in color; has a light sour note on the nose that points towards a possible infection; a little dark roast too; yup, super fizzy mouthfeel and not overly sour, but not quite right; fizzy carbonation overwhelms any flavor; sour roast, ugh; not overly bad like some of the recent Shorts stuff, but not right

DerWeg (1593) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
First off, GREAT Frenchy name. This beer has a great crisp nose. touch sour and fruit. Taste lightly roast with good acidity and sourness. Winey dry grape, leafy and a touch sweet earthiness, gorgeous dry and lightly fruity finish. Palate only lightly parching, pleasant.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Draft at ChurchKey. Poured a dark brown, nearly opaque. The head was light brown. Smelled of dark chocolate and subdued coffee. Medium bodied and tart in an oaky kind of way. Tasted predominantly of chocolate and subdued roast. Odd, and not all that appealing too me.

nimbleprop (7492) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Sampled on tap at Max’s Baltimore. Pours a medium bodied, deep brown with one ring of beige head. Aroma is a nice mix of coffee, nuts, milk chocolate, lightly smoky, almost like a good BBQ sauce. Flavor is sweet, malty, dark bread, milk chocolate. Finish is watery with a touch of coffee bitterness.

argo0 (13235) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 6, 2010

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2010
Bottle. Black with foamy brown head. Thick roasted malt aroma with strong coffee and some chocolate notes. Unfortunately a strong sourness cuts through the roasted malt flavour ruining what should be a very good porter. Second sip starts roasted but the lemon freight train picks up steam crushing everything else.
