VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
750 ml of a gusher bottle. Pours black with a thick, creamy, resilient beige head. Aroma is coffee, wood, booze, chocolate. Flavor is coffee, dark chocolate. Super dry. Finish is woody,black coffee, hints of booze. Rather bitter. Lingering coffee bitterness. Light to medium body, weak to average carbonation. Barrel aging did not add so much to this beer, not worth the ridiculous price.

SuperTiti33 (857) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Noir. Avec un fine mousse beige foncé. Belle effervescence. Très riche pour son pourcentage (7%). Goût prononcé de chocolat noir. Forte amertume, autant houblonné que torréfié. Trace de sirop d'érable. Fine chaleur d'alcool. Subtile note de bois et de whisky. Café espresso. Cacao. Très bien équilibré dans son style particulier. Absolument sublime.

750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours black with a small tan / brown head. Nose brings out shit tons of whiskey, cocoa powder, and some light roast. Flavour brings out loads of whiskey barrels, dry cocoa powder, and alcoholic notes. Quite light-bodied, whiskey-dominated, and boozy, but still somehow elegant. Good stuff.

dresden (1495) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
Black with huge foaming brown head. Roasty aroma, chocolate, light ash, faint wood. Great malty taste, complex flavours of caramel, smoke, vanilla, follows by a smooth whisky burn. Fantastic beer

mathieuc (3496) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Pours a dark brown with a beige head that leaves great lacing. Aroma is roasty, ashy. I could not really perceive the whiskey but felt a boozey warmth. Taste is sweet and quite bitter. I didnt expect so much roasted malt character and its accompanying bitterness. Some whiskey do make an appearance upon retro-olfaction but it certainly isnt assertive. Lingering boozy/roasty/ashy finish. Body is medium but the medium-high carbonation make it feel lighter than that. It would be smooth if it wasnt of the boozy bitter finish. Not too bad but overall a letdown from the usually awesome Dunham.

Un nez typique au style porter o la torrfaction et le chocolat dominent amplement, cette version vieillie en ft de whisky canadien a galement de bonnes effluves dalcool fort lorsque quon sapproche le museau prs de la mousse trs gnreuse qui en dcoule. En bouche, la prsence du whisky est plutt discrte, mais faites entrer de lair dans votre bouche pendant que votre gorge y est et cest ce moment que la magie oprera! Un beau produit avec une belle rondeur et chaleur, mais je mattendais un peu plus.

12 oz bottle as an extra from tom10101 thanks man!! We got a bleeder fizzy foam is spraying all over the place! After letting things settle down I pour it into a snifter, lots of thick creamy head, aroma is soy, hops, coffee and a little bit of oak. Very well balanced, a little bit of soy, some coffee a bit of oak but more pronounced than the aroma, with a gritty mouthfeel. Very well done.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
Clearish coffee coloured ale wearing a generous tan froth. Pretty balanced aroma in which minty, earthy, peaty whisky notions complement the roasted malts and come to overcast the arrogant hops from the base version. Minty chocolate angles are quickly met by a firm nutty toastiness. The whisky is a constant part of the equation, but never ventures into the overly corny or vanilla laden territory, hereby remaining polite, woodsy, spicy and smokey. It pairs nicely with the ensemble, though I cant help but miss the fragrance and freshness from the regular and more affordable Lapatt. Pleasantly enough, up until the finish, interesting dark fruits along the lines of raisins, blackberries or black currant manage to peak through and add a vinous component which removes from the otherwise fairly alcoholic profile for a 7% brew which has lost a bit of body in the wood-aging process. Tasty stuff, well elaborated, but not something Id drink regularly.
