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.

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).

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 Sampled on tap at Vices et versa. Pours a deep black color with a light brown head. Very seductive aroma of black licorice, chocolate and roasted malt. Superb, balanced flavor of chocolate, black licorice and roasted malt with a mild bitter finish. The body is light and liquorous while the carbonation is gentle. It’s a very pleasant and dangerously easy to drink baltic porter.

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.

Des notes de petits fruits sombres, mélasse, érable, vanille, coco et une certaine résine de houblons qui colle aux sucres. Superbe.

probstblueribbon (3350) - 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.

johnnnniee (3043) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle from the brewery store, enjoyed in my hotel room in the beer wasteland of Havre St Pierre Quebec. Solid black color with a huge bubbly tan head with great retention. Rich chocolate with light fruitiness and somewhat of a dubbel profile. Tasty, but not quite what I was expecting.

Bottle. Molasses and dried fruit aroma that is sweet and with some faint vanilla and toasted hazelnuts. Opaque dark brown with clear brown highlights under a lasting tan sheet. Dry and smoky flavour that is somewhat meaty with licorice and vanilla notes in the finish. Slightly warming, with medium carbonation, slightly crisp, surprisingly dry.
