Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
A deep dark brown porter with a super thick frothy brown head. In aroma, a nice mix of Brett and bitter chocolate, alcohol burn, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet peaty chocolate with dark fruits, a bit lighter than expected, but still nice. Shared with GRM.
