3.1
MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2009
500 ml bottle- A decided deep opaque black, with a frothy mocha cap, with nice lace. Smokey chocolate aroma with coffee and lactic qualities, and a bit of herbal hops. Sweet molasses and dark chocolate meet bittering hops, but the molasses is too much for me. Syrupy and sweet beyond my liking, but with an enjoyable smokey roasty finish that only has a touch of funky sourness. Ok.

Bouteille 750 ml. 8%. Couleur brune-noire foncé rougeâtre. Mousse beige. Arôme de porto, malt, un peu de caramel-chocolat En bouche, douce, un peu vineuse, un peu de sucre, moins de choclat et café que je pensais...je peut même dire qu’elle me fait penser à un Barley Wine...très bonne.

lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2013
Liquide d’un noir bien opaque, avec reflets bruns à la lumière, elle est assez épaisse et la mousse se fait rare. Au nez et en bouche, saveurs convenues : café, chocolat au lait, notes de vanille, et discrète finale de petits fruits confits. L’effervescence, comme la plupart des produits Hopfenstark, est plutôt limitée, mais dans ce cas-ci ça laisse toute la place à la saveur, comme le veut le style. Pas le meilleur porter baltique sur le marché, mais une belle tentative et une réussite en générale.

Johnsense (1775) - - AUG 5, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2016 bottle. Massive 4 finger head, cola black. Aroma of roasted malts, brown sugar, molasses, sauna wood. Taste is a fair bit sweeter than the smell with lots of brown sugar, burnt caramel, toffee, roasted malts, coffee with sugar. A tad sweet for my tastes - if you can find the barrel aged version it’s a real treat and blows this (and most other quebec porters not produced by LTM) out of the water.

ametras (1751) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
On tap at BDT. Dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma is caramel, dark fruits, chocolate, bubble gum and molasses. Taste is caramel, roasted malts, dried fruits, nuts and smoke. Medium body, low carbonation, slick texture.

3.8
DerWeg (1727) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2010 NEW RATE - Opaque brown with creamy tan ring, nutty fruity aroma, taste is deeply sweet with a core of fruit and malt, light acidity plays out berry skins, and there is some leomon and grape and a hint earth, this would age quite well. ** OLD RATE - Brown look with small white head. Aroma lightly sweet with herbal and coffee notes. Lots of sweet tastes of malt, dark sugars, etc. Has some character of red wine and hint of coffee, very interesting! 7 4 7 3 12 = 3.3

3.7
Stoned99 (1684) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2016
750 bottle shared with Guillaume and SlovakSniper. Aroma: dark red fruits, figs, raisin, slightly smoked. App: dark brown with burgundy tint, minimal off white head, little lacing. Taste and palate: full body, creamy, smooth, medium sweetness, some figs in mouth, light bitter finish. Overall: good but kinda sweet. Like the fig. Not too much candied fruits.

3.3
VTHopHead (1513) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Sample at the 2008 VT Brewers Fest - Poured a very dark brown/black in color with a small tan head. Small lacing on the glass. Aroma was heavy with roasted malts and dark fruit. Flavor was roasty with lots of fruitiness. Slightly sour and astringent at the end. Good beer, not a great one...

3.7
BiereLuc (1276) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2013
Bière noire, peu mousseuse avec un nez agréable de choco-café au parfum légèrement grillé. En bouche, la bière est bière est douce, peu pétillante... mais explosive de saveurs malgré ses airs «tranquilles». Le café domine encore, soutenu par l’alcool qui prend juste assez de place sans tomber dans le mauvais goût. La texture est veloutée; les saveurs prennent un aspect liquoreux. Encore un très bon produit signé Hopfenstark.

3.9
Diogène (1214) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2009 On tap at the brewery. Pitch black with a medium mocha creamy head with good retention. aroma is deep chocolate, cream, roasted malt and some herbal hops. Flavor is a little sweeter than expected with chocolate, cream, roasted malt, herbal hops and a bitter finish. Full body. A very good Baltic porter. .
