DuffMan (6462) - 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.

TheRatKing (102) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours black with a sandy-tan head that lasts all week. Strong, good coffee scent, slight vanilla, toasty. First taste is a kick in the teeth with bittersweet chocolate, cooling to rich coffee, settling on a slightly sharp malty in the end. Would be better if it was a bit more on the bitter side, but then I do love black coffee. I will not hesitate to have again.

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

blankboy (5950) - 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.

Lanchester (182) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle 543/700, with special thanks to Depanneur Peluso for digging it up from their special stock. Pours the typical jet black, just a thin ring of mocha bubbles clinging around the edges of the glass despite an aggressive pour...must have lost some carbonation during the aging. Deep, penetrating aromas of rich chocolaty malts, smoke, damp wood, black cherries, and the characteristic maple/bourbon notes; really complex. Flavor is a delicious marriage between smoky, dark malt and sweet, wooden bourbon profiles. There are a lot of flavors going on all at once so it’s hard to follow the taste through precisely. Finishes with a pleasant and lingering boozy note, with whiskey, maple, and a little coconut coming through. A bit too thin on the palate, not sure if this was the intention or not. I suspect the aging greatly diminished the Citra dry-hopping because it was not discernible amongst the other flavors. Overall, a great variation on one Quebec’s finest brews!

Reynolds314 (2228) - 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.

Au festival de chambly, robe noire et petite mousse moka, arôme de torréfaction et de houblon, goût de café à la vanille et de houblons. Très bonne mais je préfère l’original!

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2013
Bottled, 75 cl. Clear black with a small, almost non existent head. Roasted nose, licorice, oak, a whiff of smoke. Flavor is sweet deep roasted, very sugary, thick, leading to fruity hoppy, alcoholic, ashy finish.

Bouteille 750 ml. 10%. Édition 2011. Couleur brune très foncé, mousse brune. Arôme de bois, chocolat, fruits rouges cuits, un peu de moka. En bouche, douce, du bois et du café, des fruits, peu d’effervescence, alcool un peu mais dans l’ensemble bien balancée. Bien bonne.
