   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
MartinT (8281) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Wealthy raisins and dark chocolate establish themselves atop the roasted maltiness, while molasses add a dash of sweetness to this plump and reverend Baltic Porter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the blackness with brown edges.
-This has world-class potential written all over it.
-The nose is a beautiful prelude to what is to come in the flavor profile.
-The finish has a touch of nascent vinosity, but it’s barely there for now.
-All malt flavors are united for the greater good, and continue into the finish. They work perfectly with the restaurant’s "côtes levées du diable".
-The lovable, round body is one of its finest features.
-Carbonation is prickly, making the round body feel lighter.
-Roasted malts and leafy hops offer plenty of bitterness in the finish. This is now balanced, like most TDDs.
-Like most of their beers, this one is of the same intensity from nose to flavor profile to finish.

On tap at the brewpub.

Eructoblaster (3215) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2009
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.

JulienHuxley (3763) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2010
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.

AU mondial. Plus léger qu’une stout, assez carbonisé, torréfié, un sucre leger mais distinct.

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.
