cloudstrife (54) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2008
12oz bottle poured into glass. Dark blackish amber color with a yellowish cream colored head. No strong smell, kind of disappointing there. Thin feel on the palate, and lacking malt in the flavor. A non distinctive porter that tastes like it is mass produced. In terms of darker beers really easy to pound em. Overall not the worst attempt for Labatt but much room for improvement.

For this one, let me first say that I really like the label. Seems some 150 years went by from the time it was brewed to when it was put on the shelves. Shows a dark cola body with nice ruby highlights topped with a foamy hazel head. The nose is promising with great roasted and sweet malts and a nice dark chocolate perfume. The taste is a bit too sweet giving away the chocolate once more and some hops. Its without question a very light brown porter that has a very light and smooth taste with almost no aftertaste. The same beer at lets say 6.5 or 7.0 ABV would have been just out of this world since I thought it lacked the kick of the hops.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
Boisson mince, couleur cola, assez peu odorante et dont la mousse est purement thorique. En bouche, sensations de sirop chocolat artificiel en fond de gorge, avec une texture crayeuse et des saveurs doucereuses qui sattardent un peu trop longtemps. Impressionnant de savoir que cette brasserie brasse toujours ce type de bire, mais malheureusement pour eux, peu prs tout ce que lon retrouve sur le march nord-amricain est meilleur que cette offrande bizarre.

Thanks blackipa, pours a brown to black, very syrupy and a bit of burnt roast taste, sweet and molasses, overall drinkable.

solidfunk (8553) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Kind of a sickly, syrupy taste to this one. Pours dark enouhh with ok head as poured into the snow waiting for the bus in Aylmer. Sweet finish. Low carbonation. Lets leave this style to the craft brewers boys. Bottle from Bieres du monde across thr street.

I give this a perfect score, why you ask, because this is a pick-me-up when you are feeling tired and slugish. A real Granmother remedy. Just had Bronchitis and an ear infection, this is great to drink (1 bttle/day) to boost your immune system. Dont know what it contains, but it works.

Most under rated bear around in my book. Malty caramel bread aroma, dark brown, very little head, light to medium sweet, medium to full body with a thick texture, average to soft fizz. Nice caramel/chocolate finish. Actually like to drink one of these when I have them and a bottle of Innis & Gunn darker variety beers such as the Irish Whiskey Cask.

czar (8812) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
pours muddy dark brown with a small diminishing off-white head, no retention. roasted and burnt corn, cloying cheap molasses, minerals, boozy, chocolate and lactose-like creamy sweetness - cloying. average carbonation, medium body - oily, sticky, big, bland and awkward herbal-grassy finish. almost horrid.

SlovakSniper (5463) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2013
Une bouteille vendue 3,39$. Une robe marron et son petit col mousseux qui sefface rapidement. Un nez qui surprend avec des notes de caf et de trs fines notes chocolates. Un got plutt fade. Les saveurs sont mal dfinies. Peut-tre sont-elles construites pour ne pas choquer les papilles de la majorit? Enfin, rien de bien catastrophique dans cette reprsentation facile et bon enfant. En bouche, un corps bien faible et vivifi par des bulles piquantes. Une texture qui rappelle le cola Le Choix du Prsident. Une finale inoffensive, sur des notes de caf et des notes caramlises. Que de bons souvenirs rattachs cette bire quon considrait jadis comme une bire nourrissante. Quelque part vers la fin des annes 70, ma grand-mre, sourire en coin, nhsitait jamais me laisser boire une gorge de cette bire qui, pour moi, gotait la bonne mlasse. Cnie sa mi po vs babičku.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours a dark orangeish brown with a short lasting beige head. Smell is grilled malt and grains. Taste is tons of sweet caramel, maple syrup, coca-cola. Quite sweet, brown sugar, cane sugar. No real bitterness. Liquid body. Felt more like drinking pepsi than porter. Highly disappointing.
