Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2015
A clear brown porter with a thick frothy lacing mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with light peated notes, grassy hops, fusel alcohol, wood extract, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity chocolate malt with light woody character, peated notes, light bacon, very nice. On tap at Rattle N Hum.

My Bottom Line:
The triumphant marriage of smoke, oak, fruit and coffee this Smoked Porter showcases is even more impressive due to the smooth and cushiony body which it inhabits.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A lusciously creamy head of foam covers the brown-lined black.
-Underlying caramel adds even more complexity.
-All flavours, from oak to malts and from hops to esters, are balanced and aligned.
-The finish is mostly coloured by roasted malt bitterness and accompanying citrusy hops.

On cask at the brewery.

New beer just by changing from american oak to french oak? I don’t think so, but whatever. I’m rating it, because others have. On cask at stone. Big fluffy head. Very roasty. Soft cask carbonation. Dryish. Oak aroma is subtle. Very soft and mellow other than the bit of roastiness.

WeeHeavySD (3380) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Cask @ Stone today, right at the end of the cask, shared with wetherel. Pours black with a tan puffy head. Nose is smoky, roasty, malty and clearly oaky. The taste has some clear wood characteristics, and some nice sweet malts.

On cask at linkery. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Sweet roasty oak aroma. Creamy palate. Chocolate and sweet oaky and roasty taste with a woody finish. Yum.
