Belmont bottle of unknown age since I found it hiding in a box. This is a really great, strong porter with tons of coffee and chocolate that finishes with a spicy rye bite. Well done.

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2013
0,5 l bottle rated at home. Pours a clear near black mahogany body covered by a small dense brown head that leaves beautiful laces on the glass. Inviting coffee, raisin and dark chokolate on the nose, quite boozy too bringing thoughts of cognac to mind. Coffee and sweet liquorice explodes and rides the full bodied and alco warm mouth feel right through to the end that lasts and lasts. Lovely roasted notes and a pleasant bitterness. Well balanced and smooth to drink. Rich and complex. A true delight.

Boutip (5957) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep black color porter with a rather large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with light spicy rye notes and some residual sugar notes. Taste is mxi between light dry roasted malt notes with spicy notes of rye also noticeable and some well-balanced residual sugar. Body has a really nice creamy texture with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Solid porter with rye notes adding further complexity.

Fred82 (2144) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2013
500ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Pitch black with tiny head.
Aroma : Coffee and spicy rye with light acidic notes. Red dry fruits. Slightly sweet rye notes.
Taste : Cold coffee with spicy rye. Light tar. Finish is slightly resinous with moderate bitterness.
Palate : Really soft carbonation. Nearly flat.
Overall : Nice rye profile. Nice coffee notes as well. Fairly well made but could use a bit more carbonation... I think it would help with the aroma. Well done, packed with flavor, not too heavy and fairly well balanced.

Lots of deep molasses and licorice, lightly peppery some grape jelly spicy, heavy, rich, a little alcohol, inky and very big. Medium-full body, relaxed effervescence, very creamy. Tons of big, black, inky molars, licorice, huge stuff, lightly peppery with decent leafy hops, so big and malty; sweet with pretty good bitterness and a long, very deep, dark finish.

50 cl. courtesy of Man-ki. Thx! Shared by 3. Bottled on 10.02.2012. Pours black with basically no head. Smells of rye bread, spices, chocolate, rum pie, touch coffee, some pleasant alcohol presence and deeply toasted wood. Taste of rye bread, spices, molasses, light warming / boozy nature, thick, some bitterness in the back, bitter roast,… Little carb. very thick cold coffee feel. Very nice. These guys continue being very solid to say the least.
