On tap at WVRST. Very dark with thick foamy tan head. Lovely aroma of raisins, chocolate, coffee. Very smooth, soft finish. Tastes of toffee and chocolate with some apple. Interesting.

Bouteille de 600ml. Couleur noire, fine mousse beige. A: cacao, malt torréfié, un peu de sucre style mélasse et fruits très mûres. G: anis, café, melasse. Bel équilibre sucré/salé. Fin de bouche très sec avec amertume sucré résiduelle. P: moyen-fort avec une belle texture huileuse qui enrobe la bouche. Effervescence faible.

Metalchopz (2626) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
Pours a dark brown colour with slight copper highlights. The head is big, warm beige-coloured, goes down very slowly leaving some creamy-foamy lacing. Sharp aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, apples, alcohol, with hints of licorice, herbs and nuts. That sharpness is also present in the taste with the grassy hops and roasted malts, but it smooths down in the middle showing some coffee and apples. So, more on the apples side of things, than dark fruits that I am use to with porters. Nice coffee lingering. Stout like ? Still, I quite like this beer.

AlainG (1545) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
Une brune à la mousse assortie, ne laissant pas de traces. Un nez de malt et de grains foncés avec des effluves légèrement acidulées. UN goût de café, de raisins secs, de mélasse et/ou de caramel et d’herbes. Une agréable amertume sur des notes minérales, ainsi qu’une effervescence , tout en douceur. Svelte et crémeuse, elle laisse une sensation plaisante en arrière-goût. ( Marcus 7 mois) (Emb. 11-06-15) (1508-280615)

Boutip (5198) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear black color stout with a medium size brown foamy head with OK retention and light lacing notes. Aroma of black chocolates with light roasted malt notes is OK. Taste is a mix of black chocolates notes with light residuals sugar notes and dry roasted malt notes. Body is too thin for the style with good carbonation. Not bad but falls a bit short on character.

Bamsen78 (4446) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy nearly black withairy but stable light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with fruity notes and touches of roast. Sweetish flavour of malt, caramel and fruit, with notes of yeast and roast, and bitter, hoppy touches. Roasty aftertaste with nutty notes. Medium body and medium to hogh carbonation. Not bad for a Baltic Porter made far away from the Baltic Sea!

Scopey (9381) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Keg at Stillwell. It pours jet black with a small light tan head. The nose is soft, sweet, oily, treacle, salted liquorice, roasted malt, maritime fayre and cocoa. The taste is bitter-sweet, rich roast, salted caramel, liquorice, toasty, treacle, dark chocolate and coffee with a dry, roasty finish. Medium+ body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Well rounded and easy drinking actually. Good baltic porter.

simardsam (231) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2015
Brune très foncée, presque noire, avec un col éphémère de mousse de couleur café. Nez de torréfaction, de café, mais surtout de cacao et de rôtie. Goût d’anis, de cacao, de grillé et légèrement d’alcool.

probstblueribbon (3323) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2015
600 ml bottle shared by Phil. Very deep brown with a fair mocha head. Very deep bread crust, light chocolate, somewhat nutty, vanilla, slightly oxidized, odd phenolic smoke. Medium plus body, full, fine carbonation. Messy...smoky, sweet, vaguely fruity, not deep or dark enough; off-dry with moderate bitterness and a sherry-like, slightly hot finish. Surprisingly poor for this brewer.
