Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAY 24, 2013
In short: A complex roasted porter with good hopping. Very nice.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed when approximately 4 to 6 months of age. Bottle sent to me by oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Nose is has a pleasant rich toasted malt character as well has green herbal hops. Taste has succulent cereals, highly roasted and wrapped in luscious caramel, nice mocha, roasted cashews, burnt oats, notes of bakery chocolate. A decent amount of herbal-spicy hops that distracts the taste buds and washes the sweetness away. Lively mouthfeel with a big body and generous but never aggressive carbonation. Nothing original here but the execution is flawless, it is flavorful, a good complexity, a high drinkability factor. A 22oz that went down like a 12oz. Very much above average take on the style. Another nice bottle I got in a trade that was gathering dust in my cellar, I have way too much good beer in my cellar, so if you are reading this I hereby invite any ratebeerian passing through Montreal to drop by house and watch me drink way too much good beer.

Holmen1 (5098) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2016
Fra flaske p Mi2 Cardinal sep-16: brunsvart med ok skum. Mmm, her er det mange fornyde fjes rundt bordet. Mrk sjokolade, kaffe, brent malt og et snev av ryk. Supersmud og balansert, lekker og tilbakelent slik de beste portere skal vre. Ingen skarpe kanter. N er det bare Chesterfielden som mangler.
