MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
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.

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2009
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.

SlovakSniper (3647) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2010
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).

BiereLuc (1045) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Bière noire avec un nez de grains grillés et de café. En bouche, c’est encore le goût de grillé qui domine avec une belle balance amertume / sucre résiduel.

A deep dark porter with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet chocolate with peaty notes, licorice, and grassy notes. In mouth, a sweet licorice chocolate with burned caramel, grassy character, alcohol warmth.

jercraigs (8289) - 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
