3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
En fût, à Shawinigan, le 19 juin 2010. Bière brune foncée avec un petit col mousseux. Le nez est finement houblonné et présente des notes de malt chocolaté. De plus, réglisse et légère touche de fruit. La bouche est aussi envahie par des notes finement torréfiées et amères. Sur la langue et sous le palais, le liquide est plutôt mince et est soutenu par une moyenne effervescence. La finale est plutôt douce sur des notes qui rappellent la mélasse (ou le caramel brûlé).

On tap at TDD. Dark brown pour with hints of red. Nice roasted aroma mixed with candied fruits and coffee. Taste is not overwhelming, just a nice balance of fruity sweetness and roasted bitterness. Palate is a bit thin, but quite enjoyable.

On tap at the pub. On tap at the pub. Pours an opaque black body with low carbonation and a lasting beige creamy head. Lovely, complex malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar, roasty, and fruity hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Well balanced taste. Texture is soft. Taste carries plummy, vineous notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve tried this twice. Once at the pub where it could easily claim a spot in the province’s top 100 beers and another time at Brouhaha where I found it more restrained, less fruity and rich. At the pub though, this was a very dark brown pour covered by a lasting off-white head. Elegant malt aroma comprising well-roasted graininess, toasty nuances and coffee touches, all very well integrated and tasty. The fruitiness cannot be called broad, but its dark grapeyness is addictive. Active, but moderate effervescence. A bit powdery, but engaging mouthfeel. Lasting roasty finish is enhanced further by fair leafy hops. Very good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: A strong and slightly chocolaty porter. No character. Slightly problematic chalky/vegetables malt tones. Bad batch?
How: Tap at Brouhaha
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head leaving good lacings
In long: A light nose of black chocolate. The carbonation is very smooth and the body is round and cushiony but a bit thin for a 9% porter. In mouth it was like the beer had two distinct malts that didn’t blend together. I was getting nice round chocolaty malts but also some burnt malts with a light vegetables character. Weird, I don’t know how else to describe it. Some molasses and dark fruits try to pierce through. The ashy/floury roastiness hides the sweetness. A sensation of a floury chocolate cake with a little burnt rubber here and there. I didn’t care much for this beer but I feel like there was something was off with my glass. Need to resample. I usually really like this brewpub so I was as disappointed as a Bangkok hooker after the navy has left town.

Verre de 5 oz, au Pub Brouhaha. Arômes de chocolat et de fruits mûrs. Robe noire, légèrement translucide et peu de mousse. Assez mince en bouche, le chocolat est accompagné d’une touche de fruits mûrs (pruneaux). Finale douce et sèche. L’alcool est bien dissimulé.
