Bottle @ home, thanks Aaron! Pitch black pour with a generous tan head. Tons of caramel, fudge, smooth vanilla, coconut, brrbn, sweet malts, milk chocolate and light ash. Very good!

Adamsville (196) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
Apparence : Brune très foncée, noire, reflets brunâtres, effervescence semble moyenne, bon col brun, rétention appropriée, légère dentelle.
Nez : Chocolat sucré à la vanille, fruits rouges (cerises), boisé, sucre grillé, légères notes d’alcool. Bonne intensité, complexe et équilibré.
Goût : Chocolat sucré, mêmes fruits rouges, boisé, alcool qui se pointe en finale. Plutôt sucrée, légère amertume. Intensité élevée.
Sensation : Corps assez dense, effervescence moyenne, belle chaleur de l’alcool, piquant sur la langue et au palais. Longue finale chaleureuse, grillée et boisée.
O : Multidimensionnelle, équilibrée, intense, excellente… que demander de plus? Le vieillissement en fût est sans faille, aucune fausse note ou acidité mal placée. Elle est traître car on peut en boire assez avant de se rendre compte qu’elle contient 10,5%!

stoutnick (827) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2016
lightish black pour. Aroma is mild dark malt, touch of brandy and big booze. Taste is sweet spirit, bourbon, brandy and a crazy level oxidation (too much for me). Spirit is the big winner here, but not much of the base beer shines because of the barrel plus oxidation. Shame because the base beer is a winner.

Davros (2746) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2016
Pours black with a large tan head. Nose shows coconut, woody oak, vanilla, roasted malt and chocolate. Flavours include bourbon, vanilla, woody oak, milk chocolate. A fair bit of sweetness, works well.

Iznogud (2377) - CROATIA - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle, 750 ml at Olhops. Courtesy of and shared with Francisco from Olhops. Huge thanks! Pours black with small tan head. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, vanilla, wood, bourbon. Low carbonation, oily. Complex yet ery balanced and smooth, alcohol well hidden, really impressive.

bluejacket74 (1815) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2016
750 ml corked and caged bottle, no dating on it that I noticed. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. I like the aroma a lot, the brew smells like dark chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit, vanilla, bourbon and brandy. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some nuttiness, molasses and grainy malt flavors noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s creamy and a bit coating with a good amount of carbonation. I remember liking their regular Porter Baltique a lot, and this one is just as good if not better. It’s definitely worth picking up! $19.49 a bottle.

Bawelt (512) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAY 28, 2016
Vraiment tout ce qu’il y a à espérer d’une bière de cette qualité. Nez ultra bourbon, peu éthylique, assez chocolaté, fond café si l’on s’attarde sur les notes noix de coco. Très gourmand. Bouche classique mais parfaite : attaque ronde, chocolatée et caramélisée, légèrement boisée. Finale ultra bourbon, les notes de brandy sont très subtiles. La longueur est plutôt chaude, gourmande, très bourbon. Bel équilibre, belle buvabilité.

Matwill (91) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2016
Bouteille de 750ml de la version 2014. Liquide d’un noir surmontée d’une fine mousse moka. Boisé, bourbon, chocolat, tout y est bien balancé pour nous donner un produit unique, le top du genre au Québec et de loin.

750 ml bottle, huge thanks to willrunforbeer on his number 2000 rate !!! This is a 2014 vintage. Deep brown / black color, nice head retention in the chalice. Aroma is a wonderful blend of bourbon, dark fruit, light chocolate and still a great level of brandy character!

The flavor is simply wonderful. The base Porter has a great roasted malt and earthy grain base. The profile starts with a steady amount Brandy up front with hints of coconut and vanilla. The bourbon is noticed in the finish. The two years of sitting has mellowed the beer so it shows no alcohol whatsoever. Can’t be noticed at all. Incredible smoothness. Creamy texture, gosh this is beautiful.
