On tap at Oktoberfest in Mascouche.The color is a very dark brown with a thick beige head. The taste and aroma is of malt and fruits. There is also a fineshing taste of sweet toffee that leaves a nice aftertaste.

Bottle at Volo. Opaque black with nice head. Some cherry pit and clean metals in the complex nose. Soft, low carbonation. Smooth. Licorice, soya, resin, balsamic, sour cherry. Gorgeous!

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. .

750 ml bottle, fresh. Nice black pour with a thin creamy whitish head. Great aroma of milk chocolate, light grainy notes and fruit. Taste is sweet, lots of chocolate with some fruity fig like taste and a hint of roasted grain. Palate is smooth, relatively weak carbonation.

On tap @ local option. Pours a clear dark brown with a creamy light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces beautifully. Aroma is very creamy dark grains with light coffee with a bit of bitter chocolate. Flavor is creamy coffee and dark chocolate with a bit of dry grain in the finish.

Des arômes de café, de chocolat et de réglisse noire. Des saveurs de chocolat et de malt rôti avec des notes de café et de vanille et très peu d’amertume. Un délicieux porter qui se boit facilement. Un autre produit Hopfenstark à découvrir.

philippem (106) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2008
En bouteille: Au nez, pâte à biscuit, chocolat, tabac et petites baies rouges (ce qui me rassure, après avoir senti ma bière à même la bouteille, où j’avais l’impression de respirer de la pâte à papier mouillée!). Visuellement, c’est splendide, avec un noir totalement opaque, ce qui me rappelle l’infinité du cosmos mélancolique. En bouche, tabac, chocolat, des accents de jus de raisin.

Après avoir lu les commentaires de certains (glouglouburp notamment), j’avais des doutes sur Hopfenstark en bouteille et je dois l’avouer, le bouchon sur cette bouteille me paraîssait assez fragilement « installée » et la décapsulation si facile m’a donné une mauvaise impression au départ. Pourtant, la bière était tout à fait acceptable, et se rapprochait de la version en fût, savourée assez fréquemment au Vices & Versa. À suivre....

Glass, on tap at Host and Vice-Versa. Poured pitch black with a medium creamy brown head. Awesome look. Good head retention, leaves great lacing. Aroma is chocolate, strong roasted malt and caramel. Taste is roasted malt, caramel and chocolate. Finish is quite roasted. Mouthfeel is creamy. medium carbonation. It is my best porter so far. Rating #119

jredmond (8787) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Draft at Ginger Man NYC with Streets, Andrew and Brendan. Pours a dark brown body with thin lacing. Aroma is slightly smoky. Mouthfeel is smooth with sweet notes of oak. Great Porter

3.8
Boutip (6567) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep black color ale with nice light brown foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of rich black chocolate with light residual sugar notes. Taste is also a great mix between some rich black chocolate with light roasted notes. Body is bit thin for style with great carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed with great drinkability factor.
