COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Le Purgatoire, préambule aux joies de l’au-delà, est né d’une affection commune entre Le Trou du Diable et Dieu du Ciel ! Comme son nom l’évoque, il s’agit d’un porter à l’ancienne vieilli 15 mois en barriques de vin rouge envahies de levures sauvages. Son nez révèle d’intenses notes de gousses de vanille, de toffee et de griottes. Sa bouche, surette et traditionnellement peu effervescente, s’exprime par les mêmes accents sur fond de noix de Grenoble et de liqueur de café. Le Purgatoire, véritable processus de purification de l’âme, constitue pour tout amateur de bière un passage secret vers le paradis.

neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
750 mL bottle at a Trou du Diable barrel-aged tasting at Volo, served in a stem glass. Pours deep chestnut with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a trace of lace. The nose has flowers, Brettanomyces, sour fruit, red wine barrel and roasted malts. The flavour is moderately sour up front with fruity notes; subtle dry roasted malts emerge as it lingers on the palate. In the finish, hints of smoke and roasted malt emerge, reminiscent of the original porter. On the palate it is medium in body with a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall a nice sour porter. Tasty and interesting. 2013-05-25

Bar Volo feature. All the right bugs, and on a porter. A good blend, good drinkability. Lacy.

Nice barrel aroma. Not even sure what this is but it’s nice. Some wine, some bread. Pours blackish brown with clear maroon. Finishes a little sour and some sweetness. Some funk, some roast malt here with light smokiness. Bottle at Volo for Zwanze Day.

Jool (183) - - JUN 8, 2013
Bouteille 750mL. Brune foncée quasi-noire. Nez de cerises avec une pointe vinaigrée. Bouche légèrement crémeuse: cerises sures, brett, très légèrement chocolatée et une finale un peu acétique. Intéressantes.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
2013-05-25. Crisp dark brown black body, ruby highlights and a modest tan head. Aroma is modest, lightly sour lightly dusty malt. 7+ Flavour is interesting, lightly tangy and sour up front. Muted dark roast and dusty touches to the malt throughout. 7+ Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Enjoyable but not really what I was in the mood for just yet. Relatively mild overall. Bottle at Volo, Toronto
