LouisP (326) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2016
Une bire noire, grande carbonatation, avec une couleur fort opaque. Au nez, cest trs torrfi, avec des odeurs prvalantes de caf et de cacao, rappelant peut-tre un peu plus un stout quun porter. Au got, le caf domin galement, avec un petit got sucr que jattribue au sucre dorge et la mlasse. Pour un porter, on sattendrait peut-tre plus complexe, avec beaucoup de caf. Le corps est bien calibr, prsent mais pas trop lourd, crmeux, rappelant un millk stout. La bire nest peut-tre pas ultra originale mais fait bien le travail.

Bottle shared by Joel. Poured a pitch black medium to thicker density u derived a smaller tight foamy deep mocha head. Aroma/ flavor of coffee, cinnamon, dark chocolate, burnt toast, vanilla beans. Fuller body with softer carbonation and a chalky mouthfeel. Nice

Adamsville (260) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2016
Apparence : Pas totalement noire, carbonatation moyenne, beau col brun ayant une bonne rtention et une dentelle intressante sur le verre.
Nez : Grains rtis plein le nez en premire impression. On note par la suite le caf (bien rti) et un peu de vanille qui vient tenter de balancer les notes grilles.
Got : Malt rti, caf, touche de vanille et de chocolat. Peu sucre et peu amre, ce dernier aspect se pointant surtout en finale avec une touche pice que jattribue la cannelle.
Sensation : Corps moyen mince, longueur moyenne en bouche effervescence plutt faible.
Bref : On a ici droit une bire sans contredit domine par les notes rties et ce, autant au nez quen bouche. Lapport de la vanille ici, quoiquintressant, est peut-tre trop discret pour empcher le malt et le caf dclipser plusieurs subtilits que lon pourrait peut-tre trouver dans ce liquide. La cannelle, qui na pas figur au rendez-vous dun point de vue gustatif, se manifeste par un ct pic qui vient tout de mme nous pargner dune finale redondante sur les tons de grill. Facile boire, elle remplit son rle de Porter, malgr un taux dalcool plus lev que ce quon retrouve traditionnellement. Agrable, mais pas renversante.

Bulk_Carrier (4226) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Poured into a Hill Farmstead becher pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown mostly close to black color with a great two finger foamy off white to tan head. Mild lacing roaming all around the glass. The aroma took on a great amount of roasty to smooth sweet cocoa to coffee great bitterness. Subtle cinnamon, but super low key, really, it is. Some vanilla bean. The flavor rides on the smoothness of the sweet to roasty cocoa to coffee bean. Subtle riding bitter to a smooth roasty coffee aftertaste sliding on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium like a good American styled porter should sit. Carbonation felt exactly right for what it should be. Overall, a very well done porter that I would have again.
