DuffMan (9500) - 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.

blankboy (7180) - 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.
