Nez boisé (fût de bourbon), de malt rôti, moyen de fruits (raisins, notes de cerises noires), léger de chocolat noir, de vanille, de houblon herbeux et d’alcool liquoreux ainsi que des notes de caramel toffee et de café.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Bottle (750 ml) shared at Hill Farmstead Harvest Festival - 2011. Dark brown with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma of Citra hops, bourbon, wood and hints of the complex aroma of the regular beer (chocolate, liquorice, raisins, roasted malt and list goes on). Taste is acidic and citrusy with light notes of bourbon, vanilla, wood, raisins, roasted malt and chocolate. Low carbonation. The regular version of the beer is heavier than this one. This beer is definitely complex but I’m not convinced about the balance. Bourbon isn’t that much present and the Citra dry-hop completely change the beer, maybe not for the best. I prefer the regular version of the beer but it’s still a very good one.

garthicus (2670) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 30, 2011
Cask. Appearance: pitch black. Motor oil, tiny bubbly brown head. Aroma: wow, barrel ! Lots of wood, a little red wine, rich chocolate. Flavour: rich and berry like, thick mouthfeel, really rich, really wood/barrel like, long wood and liquor finish.

Reynolds314 (2331) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle shared at the harvest festival and another strange one but in a pretty good way. The barrel characteristics were very light with small bourbon and vanilla notes. The dry hopping made this weird i think. Citrus and dank grass fight a bit with the roasty chocolate notes.

Marheb (2047) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Je pense qu’il faut avoir une approche différente devant cette Porter. La richesse du corps et la lourdeur des malt est bien présente mais une certaine légèreté habite fortement cette version vieillie. Le côté vanille et boisé est présent mais pas autant que j’aurais cru, j’aime bien que l’acidité et les notes fruités soient assez dominantes.

Minderbinder (1795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle 750ml. [2010 version,412/700] Pours very dark brown with a pretty low beige "head". Minimal to no lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, wood, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is of bourbon, wood, dark fruits, caramel. Palate: Full bodied. Low, but existing carbonation. Overall: A tad heavy/swilly, but not cloying. Better than what I remembered.

SlackerMads (1606) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle. Pitch black with a small light brown head. Aroma is dark roasted malt, plums, chocolate, light coffee, licorice. Taste is close to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium body, oily texture, soft+ carbonation. Roasted light sweet and dry finish. Could do with more body and something to balance the sweetness.
