MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Deeply roasted malts and their burnt edges benefit from fruity currents, meeting up with toasted bread lengths and slight acidity.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the brown-edged blackness.
-Mouthfeel is surprisingly effervescent.
-Green hop bitterness is rising with every sip.
-Dark chocolate is also found, in the 90% cocoa range.
-The roasted malt acidity, surely emboldened by the high carbonation, works well to counterbalance the finish.
-This is what I imagine old London Porter to have tasted like.
-Another fine malt-accented brew from Partizan!

Bottle - Roasty, peanut and dark cola notes. Jet black with a rich light brown head. Lots of dark roast and toasty notes with a long finish. A bit too bold for a mild, but still nice.

Cask at Pit Caribou brewpub (Montréal). Dark breown, almost black, with a small persistent ring of beige foam leaving little to no lacing. Aroma is roasty with vanilla notes, umami, mild herbalness and mineral/earthy notes. Taste is also roasty with chocolate, vanilla, mineral/earthy notes and mild herbal bitterness. Light-ish - medium body. Soft carbonation. A bit fluffy mouthfeel. Roasty finish. A fun Mild Ale that packs a lot of flavor and plays in the Porter territorry. Tasty.

Grzesiek79 (3998) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 30, 2016
Bottled 26/01/16. Kolejne piwo ciemne z wieczornej degustacji. Piekna bezowa piana spora i trwala, kolor ciemny nie przejrzysty. Zapach slodow palonych. W smaku troche jak mleczny Stout ale to w koncu tylko Mild. Ale to mild kapitalny, smaczny i tresciwy. Slodkawy ale tez i palony. Gleboki posmak palonego slodu, kakao, laktozy i sliwek wegierek. Deserowe piwo niczym Porto. Super rewelacja ktora umila pozne wieczory.

BB 26/01/2017. quite dark brown color, medium big off-white / tan head. smells roasty, earthy, spices, hints of ash, very light coffee. decent smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes earthy, light smoke, some ash, roasty, after a bit a smooth earthy / roasty note stays. finishes rather lightly roast and earthy almost watery but not quite. nice enjoyable beer. feels quite a bit lighter than the abv would suggest.

jjsint (2326) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle from Ales by Mail, drunk in good company and while keeping a beady eye on France v Germany semi final. Very dark brown, opaque, with a quickly dissipating sandalwood head. Once the head is gone the beer looks rather flat. Hot fudge and chocolate malt in the heady aroma. Sweet as you’d expect at first, but an ambrosial hoppy bitterness slowly creeps in and takes over. Thin oily body, soft to nonexistent carbonation. A proper mild done extremely well.

czar (7707) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2016
cask @ pub pit caribou, mtl. unclear dark brown with a creamy beige head, some retention and lacing. roasted chocolate, spicy roastiness, milk chocolate, coffee, cacao, berries, smooth mineral earthiness, hint of smoke/umami. moderately low carbonation, light to medium body - oily; semi-sweet chocolate-mineral finish. like a chocolatey porter more than a mild.

SlovakSniper (5071) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2016
(330 ml. 6.4%. Bottled 26/01/16. BBE 26/01/17) Un liquide brun sur lequel flotte une mousse plutôt mince. Au nez, parfums secs de cacao, de terre et de petits fruits avec une touche minime de cendre. Au goût, du café et des noix avec du caramel et une touche citronnée. Au palais, un corps crémeux qui pétille avec douceur. En finale, une amertume de malts rôtis et de houblons boisés/fleuris.
