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.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 750 ml bottle (2011 edition) from Boîte à Bières (many thanks, P-A). Pours black with an orangeish tint. Very short-lasting beige head, leaves no lacing. Smell is bourbon whiskey, vanilla, wood. Taste is dark cherry, figs, strong chocolate, cocoa, roasted, port wine, wood, bourbon whiskey. Some fruity, lemon and grapefruit bitterness. Leaves a lingering roast, wood, smoked and hazelnut taste in mouth. Light bodied, velvety mouthfeel. Carbonation is almost imperceptible. Felt like having the best port wine of my life. This is a top notch beer ; unfortunately, compared to the "regular" version, it seems to have lost a lot of its body, and the carbonation also seems to have suffered, as well as the head. Regardless, I would recommend it to anyone, and would be delighted to try the 2010 version. June 3, 2013 update 750 ml bottle from czar (2010 edition - thus, aged almost one year since its purchase in July 2012) - thanks a million, mate. Pours pitch black with a nice beige head (surprisingly much longer-lasting than expected) that leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is smoke, wood, dark chocolate, hazelnut, coffee. Flavor is dark chocolate, coffee, roasted hazelnut, wood, smoke, black cherry, dates, figs, coconut. Finish is roast, hazelnut, dark chocolate, coffee. Lingering corn and bourbon flavors. Medium to strong body, sticky and oily mouthfeel. Weak carbonation. Very, very, extremely, unbelievably solid sh*t. If that beer were a woman, I would indulge in the most sinful of acts with it. I would probably sell my soul for an opportunity to bathe in it. If heaven tastes as good as that lager, I am ready to go. If you got a bottle you want to get rid of...call me.

Version 2010 - 1ère utilisation des barils de bourbob. Une bière complexe qui commence par un liquide bien noir mais peu effervescent, épais et dévoilant des notes de cerise noire, de café et d’alcool fort (bourbon). En bouche, l’alcool réchauffe, et les saveurs passent du café au chocolat noir jusqu’au bourbon, encore une fois. On retrouve aussi des fruits confits, et des houblons qui ferment la marche. Superbe porter robuste, mais comme dans bien des cas avec une version vieillie en barils, elle n’arrive pas à surpasser l’original, malgré une panoplie de qualités.

En avril, je déguste la version 2011 avec mon frère. Elle est belle. Noire avec une belle mousse beige qui ne dure toutefois pas longtemps. Elle dégage des arômes de torréfaction et de bourbon, dont le bois du fût. Ça goûte aussi le bourbon et le café noir qui vient avec son amertume. Je ne trouve pas que ça bonifie le produit, mais c’est quand même agréable. En septembre, c’est avec Louis que je déguste la version 2010 (512/700). C’est pareil du point de vue de sa présentation. Noire et une mousse beige qui ne reste pas longtemps.Un nez semblable de bourbon, et ce assez efficacement avec un côté boisé, des fruits secs et du caramel écossais. Le goût est de grain grillé. C’est amer. C’est alcoolisé et c’est court en bouche. Le goût s’éteint. Ce n’est pas inintéressant. Ça semble être un produit différent du porter lui-même. (831-140413/290913)

Dark ruby brown with a small beige head. Aroma is soy sauce, chocolate, plum, oak. Slick mouthfeel, smooth on the palate with a bittersweet finish. Taste is chocolate, plum, liquorice, hint of raisins. Think I prefer the regular version.

neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2011
On cask at Cask Days 2011 at Hart House, served in an English pint glass. Pours black with a small rocky tan head. The head mostly remains and leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, there is a huge oak presence, along with roasty notes of chocolate and coffee, earth and just a touch of hops. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout, with a touch of bitterness entering towards the end. Much of the nose comes through in the body. The finish is long and malty with herbal hops. On the palate, it is full in body with a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice barrel aged version of a very fine Baltic porter. There was a bit too much oak for my taste, but it was still very tasty. 2011-10-30

BiereLuc (859) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Cerise noire, belle sensation boisée sèche qui colle au centre de la langue, chocolat noir... this is serious stuff! Une édition spéciale d’une bière déjà très spéciale, c’est le comble du bonheur!

dresden (786) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
2010 version. Pours an oily black with some visible carbonation but nt muh head. Aroma of plums, chocolate, oak. Taste is quite a lot f dark fruits, some hocolate, and some light smoked malt. Overly sweet and the barrel seems to somehow make this beer less complex. Nice beer either way.

Nice thick black appearance with a tan head. This has all the classic roast malt flavours, slight mocha and just enough bitterness to steer away from sickly. awesome.
