The body’s good enough and the coffee meshes well with the porter so I’m happy with it. Not jumping around but a little grin. That’s all I could ask for I suppose. The head was quite beautiful. Coffee was mostly in the smell and slightly in the aftertaste, didn’t carry a punch, but I guess that’s not what they were going for. Very good for a new brewery, looking forward to the future.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Champanes,
this beer had a clear dark brown pour and gave a small off-white / light tan cover that receded to ring and small islands,
the nose had aromas of toasted and roasted malt with coffee, a little chocolate, some brown sugar and caramel sweetness,
the flavors were pretty much the same as the aroma except the coffee was a little bigger on the mouth than on the nose,
the finish tasted like it had a little roasted malt bitterness and very little hop bitterness with some coffee flavor following,
the mouth feel was light and thin and it had average carbonation,
a so-so porter drink, at least it was drinkable unlike a couple of their other beers.

Pours a black hazy color with a small beige head.nose is mostly coffee, with some chocolate, a bit of dark fruits also in there. Poor watery body with medium carbonation. Taste is where i think it’s unbalanced. Kind of sweet taste that finishes with a roastes bitterness. Not bad

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown pour, slightly transparent, with two fingers of tan head that recede slowly. Fair roasted coffee levels with a little chocolate on the nose. There’s a bit of dark fruit in there as well, but not much. More chocolate on the palate with lots of roast. The coffee notes seem to be subdued, but I’m more impressed than I was with the nose. A little light in body but perfectly serviceable stuff.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Une grosse bouteille qui expulse un liquide foncé. Une couronne de mousse qui fond à vue d’oeil. Que vois-je? Le début d’une dentelle? Et bien oui! Un premier nez bien pauvre. Un second qui n’est pas riche. Et les autres qui retracent du café et du chocolat dans des proportions assez légères merci. Une essence de moka. Des saveurs végétales de café. Sur les papilles, c’est presque désagréable et franchement insipide. Des notes de piment fort. Un corps mince et presque trop pétillant. Une finale pleine d’eau avec une fantomatique présence du café et des notes actives de choses piquantes. Impossible de finir mon verre. Problématique. Allez, on verse le restant dans le bain. Sûrement efficace pour nettoyer le drain.

Une grosse bouteille. Un liquide brun avec une mousse beige. La mousse se dissipe rapidement. Un nez de chocolat, simple. La bouche est piquante, poussiéreuse, simple, mince et je ne vois pas le mocha.

Disappointing, some kind of bizarre sour or burned taste is too predominant in this one. Fine to try once but would not recommend nor buy again.
