jercraigs (7699) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
2011-10-30. Dark black body with a modest frothy tan head. Rich malty character, vanilla wod notes. 8+ Aroma is similarly rich dark malt and sweet woody overtones, touches of sweet bourbon or wood. 7+ Medium to full bodied palate. Not the most complex but richly delicious. "Barrel Aged Baltic Porter", Cask Days 2011, Toronto

DuffMan (6638) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Inky brown pour, average finely bubbled brown head. Aroma features burnt sugars and dark fruits, yeasty undertones. Molasses, figs, raisins, corky yeast, bitter finish, traces of dry wood. More complex than Alley Kat’s Baltic porter, but not as balanced as the original Trois Mous, and somehow not as rich. Still very good though.

Soft bourbon and wood on the nose, toast and roast, cocoa and chocolate. Cocoa, warm bourbon, roast and wood. Lovely chocolate and warm brownies and bourbon. Very nice. Remarkably smooth.

Aroma strong cask character up front, hints of vanilla, slight roast, alcohol warmth with fruity sourness behind.
Appearance dark brownish black. Rocky tanned top. 3+

mcberko (6259) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle 370/700. 750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany!), pours black with a slight amber tinge and a small tan head. Aroma of oak barrels, bourbon, some vanilla and some light roasted malt. Flavour is rich, full of loads of vanilla, oak barrels and a bit of bourbon, followed by lightly roasted malt and sweet chocolate. Elegant, very complex and full-bodied, leaving traces of vanilla and sweetness. Amazing stuff.

blankboy (6007) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
Cask at Cask Days 2011. Beer #3 of festival. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a small long-lasting bubbly tan head. Aroma: It’s definitely barrel-aged, with lots of wood, vanilla and sweetness followed by roasted malt, some coffee and chocolate. The flavour follows the aroma but the barrel-aging is more subtle and balanced, hence why I prefer it. Medium to full bodied. Very good stuff.

cask days 2011, dark black with darker tan head, big notes of roastd maltiness, vanilla, wood, booze, bourbon, sweet & rich maltiness. Complex flavors. Bourbon notes were extremely dominate here, almost too much IMO. Big flavors. Very impressive but a bit much
