AlainG (2167) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
Ce porter est fidle son genre en ce qui concerne sa couleur. Sa mousse est paisse, beige, dense et persistante. Des traces baveuses se colle au verre. Le grain grill se signale instantanment. Un aspect bois suit, accompagn darmes de fruits schs. En bouche, cest acidul, amer, alcoolis et sa bardasse pas mal. Un effet dengourdissement dans les mchoires. Aprs un moment, cet effet est minimis et mme annul.Le whiskey apporte une variante intressante, mais elle noptimise pas vraiment le produit. Cest toutefois trs bon. (818-180913)

Sammy (11856) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2013
Very smart strong porter. Thick dark brown appearance,a little retained head, not so much Canadian whiskey, enough to generate a Decent aroma, a hint of whiskey. Above average mouthfeel. Excellent porter. Like a big beer, very good with food, fish and meat. Very good drinkability.

Pour is dark brown (near black) with brown head and little lacing. Aroma of whiskey, chocolate, coffee. Taste is very very well balanced with some chocolate, coffee, whiskey, oak, smoke, vanilla. Medium-full body and nicely carb. Didnt expect this one to be this good. Well done!

Bouteille de 750ml. Une belle robe noire avec une mousse brune crmeuse et durable. Un nez fin de chocolat, de grain rti, de whiskey, de caf. La bouche est ronde, soyeuse, crmeuse et velout. Les saveurs sont complexes, durable, chocolates. La finale bien amre de choco-caf est trs agrable. Merci Patrick et merci Eloi.

On tap at the 2013 Bire et Saveur fesival in Chambly, Quebec on September 1st. Very dark brown, small head. Aroma of roasted barley with a touch of sweet whiskey, a little coffee. Taste of whiskey coffee with some sweet barley, good bitterness. This is good, I want the original now!

SlovakSniper (5467) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
Une robe noire. Un col mousseux qui se fige pour un instant. Un nez trs agrable. Des malts rtis. Une expression chocolate forte. Un whisky habile avec ses notes boises et ses feuilles de tabac. Une impression houblonne lamricaine. Sur les papilles, une aimable cohsion. Leau-de-vie ne bouscule jamais les grains rtis et torrfies. Les fleurs de houblons et la rsine sont des vecteurs harmonieux. Il y a sur ma langue les notes dune fume latente et pice. En bouche, le liquide prsente un corps de moyenne densit avec un ptillement modr faible et une texture soyeuse. Autant dlments qui contribuent une plus grande buvabilit. La finale me montre des notes amres doucement flattes par un whisky caramlis.

Bottle. Dark black with tan foam. Lots of chocolate, whiskey is quite present but not dominant, light smoky notes. Tons of cocoa flavor, woody, whiskey flavors, light smokiness, tobacco, tasty. Palate is rich but dry, not at all cloying and quite enjoyable. Interesting.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This Barrel-Aged Robust Porter showcases peated whisky, roasted malts and coniferous hop resins in a wealthy, silky mouthfeel which makes you lick your teeth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A fluffy head of foam laces all around the deep darkness.
-Wooden notes appear within the whisky smokiness.
-The salty, peaty greenness is perfectly harmonious with the hop signature.
-Dark chocolate lengths are delicious.
-Some caramel is also tasted within, working nicely alongside the salty peated whisky flavors.
-I still prefer the regular version, but this barrel-aged version is still a wonderful variation on the same theme.
-Cooler temperatures make the roastiness stand out too much, whereas warmer temps bring better balance in the malts contribution.
-Some raisins are also found here and there.
-The aroma is a bit linear compared to the flavor profile.
