Dark beer made 100% of UK East Kent Golding hops. The balance between the caramel and roasted malts with the hops make this beer full flavour and easy to drink.

The new version of LouLou Porter.

[7059-20150214] Tap. Burnt roasted grains aroma has a woody note. Black body with a big long-lasting creamy mocha head and thick lacing. Coffee-infused cocoa roasted malt flavour with a hint of a soured cheese in the background. Medium-full body. Interesting! (8/4/8/3/15) 3.8

Overheard: "... and then the Acadians went down to New Orleans and they became known as ’Cajuns’..."

Enjoyed on tap at Ho.ST. Brack pour, brown head. Dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malt in the aroma and taste. English hops become more prevalent as I drink this. Medium body. Very drinkable, creamy mouthfeel.

jercraigs (8794) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
2015-02-14. Black body with a nice creamy brown head and lace. Aroma is tangy and toasty, and the flavour is similar, tangy lightly bitter and sour dark roast malt. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Solid and well executed but the tangy character is not entirely to my own tastes. On tap at Station Host, Montreal.

electrotype (407) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
Très pétillante, prèsque piquante, dans un corps plutôt mince. Un bon compromis pour les amateurs de stouts/porter aux notes de café, chocolat et de fumée mais qui apprécient moins lorsque ces dernières sont accompagnées d’une alcool trop importante. À 5.5%, la Loulou Porter se boit en effet très bien!

lesifflebiere (1507) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
Petite mousse couleur cassonade sur un liquide bien noir mais mince ; odeurs de chocolat noir, de café, de vanille, et un peu de fumé. L’effervescence est quasi nulle en bouche, ce qui laisse amplement de place aux saveurs, complexes et puissantes, pour s’installer. On y goûte le chocolat et le café promis, mais aussi une petite pointe de caramel, pour ensuite la sentir se terminer sur une légère amertume, tandis que le chocolat revient pour la finale. Un porter léger mais sans aucun compromis sur la puissance des saveurs, et celles-ci sont pile poil sur le style, très bien cerné. Belle réussite.

Pours brown lots of coffee and maybe some english breakfast tea in the background. Reasonably rich mouthfeel, and quite sessionable.

cfrancis (2756) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
Pours black with a small beige ring. Aroma is small roasted malts, coffee and bitter chocolate. Taste is light body, actually fairly thin, roasted malts, coffee and bitter finish. Looking for more ooomph.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
This pours a very dark opaque brown with a huge fizzy light brown head that fizzles out. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, bready grains, and some sweetness. Flavour is made up of roasted malts, chocolate, bready, and a medium bitterness. Way too carbonated for my liking.

Reimer96 (1579) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours a dark brown with a bubbly brown head. Aroma is roasted bready malts, chocolate and some slight grassy hops. Taste is roasted malts, caramel, cocoa and a big bitter punch on the finish. Over this beer smells great and tastes good but has a huge carbonation that really kills the mouth feel and overall experience of this porter. Not a big fan.
