jredmond (8005) - 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

Boutip (6179) - 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.

ametras (1483) - 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.

MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2007 My Bottom Line:
This Baltic Porter’s molasses and roastiness dwell in a rich body ably cut by a hoppy and earthy finish. A well-balanced number which worked a little better for me than their Oak-Aged version.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam dissipates into the browned blackness.
-Carbonation is comfortable, working efficiently with the nourishing body.
-Earthiness is found in the nose and amongst the drying roastiness as well.
-Almost a year into its existence, I can say this beer ages very gracefully.
-Another thing which is fun with this brewery is that their Baltic Porter and Imperial Stout are very different from each other. These guys are really having fun.

On tap at the Mondial de la Bière and at the brewery tasting room.

daniel0017 (441) - Yukon, CANADA - JUN 22, 2007
Opaque, dark with reddish hue, one finger’s head with much lace. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor similar to aroma with notes of caramelized malts and hops (fuggles). Pronounced alcohol but well balanced with the strong flavors. Afertaste is sweet with bitter notes. Too bad this one cannot be purchased bottled for taking home!

garthicus (2920) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 20, 2009
Bottle (500ml) at Volo, shared with Blankboy & GregClow. Appearance: Ruby red/brown with a small brown head. Aroma: Alcohol with a slight sour lemon notes, somewhat nutty. As it warms it becomes peaty and smoky. Flavour: Slight sour, malt, peat and chocolate. Very nice. Another great Hopfenstark number!

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 23, 2010
Tap at Church Key. Dark brown, light off-white film. Nose oddly lemony, sparkly, not unlike lemon washing up liquid. Undertones of plum. Mouth is plummy, prune, slight sourness and some spice. Slight sweetness, fruity, dark fruit, touch of peach at the end. Woodiness is there too. Really nice. Slight saltiness on the swallow.

sseb69 (1863) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2011
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.

Johnsense (1531) - - 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.
