Eructoblaster (3891) - Gatineau, Quebec, - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Pours an opaque black body with a thick beige foamy/creamy head. Robust malty/hoppy aroma with roasty, chocolate, and plummy hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Taste is complex, well balanced and slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries roasted cereals, vanilla, brown sugar, and woody notes. Ends with a long, warming finish. Well done.

Ayant dégusté la Robust Tennessee pas bien longtemps avant, j’appréhendais l’ouverture de cette bière (et pas juste en raison de la cire autour du goulot). Aurai-je droit à la même acidité mal placée? Eh bien non, malt rôti, café, chocolat noir, boisé, belle chaleur d’alcool. Une Imperial Stout en fut qui ne détonne pas, mais qui remplit à merveille son rôle.

On tap at Pit Caribou Montreal. Pitch black with a nice thick tan fosm that melt at the same rste thatI drink it. Smell oak smd bourbon, dark sugar. The notes of vinagar is a bit too present for the style. It's killed the bourbon that csn re-appear later. Medium body, average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille de 500 mL. Couleur : La bière est noire avec un petit collet de carbonatation, et effervescence moyenne. Arômes : On sent grandement le Malt torréfié, le chocolat noir, ainsi que les grains de café. Goût : Surprise, on goûte beaucoul la vanille, dû à son processus de vieillissement, le goût de l’alcool, avec une touche assez café, ainsi qu’une dose d’amertume. Appréciation : Bien fait, mais sans plus. Peut-être un peu trop gros goût de barrique de bourbon pour mes goûts personnels.

Good ageing flavour, a tasty imperial porter. Big bubbly mocha head, and lace. Grows on me, candi and roast, and good bourbon.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
500ml bottle from Dépanneur La Duchesse d’Aiguillon in Quebec City, Quebec. Black in colour with a long lasting beige head, excellent retention, excellent lacing. The aroma is of chocolate, espresso, oak, roasty. The flavour is oaky, chocolate, some roast, light alcohol. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet, oaky. A nice barrel aged porter. Not as thinned out as other barrel aged beers.

neongolden (1267) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2016
(500ml 2014 bottle from the lovely phyllomedusa) Pours black with a small dense whitish head and lace. Aroma of chocolate coloured coffee beans, vanilla, cold coffee, light caramel, some whiskey and light char. Flavour is lightly sweet coffee and dark chocolate, vanilla, toasted wood, leather, moderate roast. Finish is moderately bitter with roast, oak and coffee. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, no alcohol. The nose on this is a real standout, while the palate backs it up even though it’s a bit light in the mouth for 10%. A very pleasant surprise from Pit-Caribou.

Apparence: D?une couleur noir opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse crémeuse d?une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt torréfié, de vanille et des légères notes d’anis. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps moyen. Au goût, c’est des flaveurs de malt torréfié, de vanille et légèrement d’alcool. Finale moyenne, avec aucune effervescence et idem pour l’amertume. Commentaires: Voici une excellente bière unique qui peut difficilement être comparée à quoique ce soit. Excellent assemblage avec un bel équilibre des flaveurs. Fiche technique Style: Impériale Porter Format: 500 ml Taux d?alcool : 7% IBU: 40

HippyHop (605) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2015
On tap at Festibiere. Velvety black pour with a pretty crema cap. Nose is lots of coffee, chocolate, molasses, some toasted grain. If I could breathe nothing but the smell of this beer for the rest of my life I would die a happy man. Wait, then I couldn’t smell other beers....fuck it, never mind. Taste is sweet, not syrupy per se but....dense; subtly bitter finish with lingering coffee and chocolate. Booze is present but it’s so chill, like the best party guest ever. Top notch stuff.

Bottle - Dark roast and some boozy bourbon notes. Jet brown with a nice rich light brown head. Lots of roast, some bitter chocolate, vanilla and bourbon. Nice, balanced and easy drinking.
