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.

On Tap at Growler Guys Meridian Dep dark brown with a brief thin light tan head and spotty lacing. Very nice rich chocolate and light roast aromas. Smooth and balanced toasted dark caramelized malt flavors. Lots of chocolate and a touch of campfire. None of the stinging sour notes that come with many porters. FG feels a litel high and the bitterness is a little low. Makes or a smooth very nice porter that is a bit on the the big side. jmgreenuk (9985) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 10, 2017
