fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (en fût) le 31 mai 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D13C3K420i). Bière noire opaque. Col mince beige foncé crémeux et persistant. Odeur de sirop de café. Très douce, très sucrée, assez amère en finale. Goût de café noir marqué. Pas trop sirupeuse malgré le sucre, se boit bien, pas trop lourde. Peut-être un peu trop légère et mince.

cargo150 (578) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Couleur brune foncé,noir avec un léger col beige résistant. Nez de grain grillés café et chocolat. En bouche les saveurs qui ressorte le plus sont les grains grillés et le café, en arrière plan du chocolat et des houblons résineux. Ce n’est pas vraiment une bonne baltic porter, assez décevant...

Marheb (2047) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
Des notes de petits fruits sombres, mélasse, érable, vanille, coco et une certaine résine de houblons qui colle aux sucres. Superbe.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
2013-05-31. Black body with a modest tan head. 4+ Aroma of dry roasty malt, sweeter dark malt undertones. Flavour is relatively dry, dusty malt, light roast. Much drier than expected from a Baltic porter. Average bodied palate is a bit light , modest carbonation. Bit light for the style. Enjoyable but not a great example of a Baltic porter. Pretty decent. On tap at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal
