Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2009
Ive tried this twice. Once at the pub where it could easily claim a spot in the provinces top 100 beers and another time at Brouhaha where I found it more restrained, less fruity and rich. At the pub though, this was a very dark brown pour covered by a lasting off-white head. Elegant malt aroma comprising well-roasted graininess, toasty nuances and coffee touches, all very well integrated and tasty. The fruitiness cannot be called broad, but its dark grapeyness is addictive. Active, but moderate effervescence. A bit powdery, but engaging mouthfeel. Lasting roasty finish is enhanced further by fair leafy hops. Very good.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2009
In short: A strong and slightly chocolaty porter. No character. Slightly problematic chalky/vegetables malt tones. Bad batch?
How: Tap at Brouhaha
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head leaving good lacings
In long: A light nose of black chocolate. The carbonation is very smooth and the body is round and cushiony but a bit thin for a 9% porter. In mouth it was like the beer had two distinct malts that didnt blend together. I was getting nice round chocolaty malts but also some burnt malts with a light vegetables character. Weird, I dont know how else to describe it. Some molasses and dark fruits try to pierce through. The ashy/floury roastiness hides the sweetness. A sensation of a floury chocolate cake with a little burnt rubber here and there. I didnt care much for this beer but I feel like there was something was off with my glass. Need to resample. I usually really like this brewpub so I was as disappointed as a Bangkok hooker after the navy has left town.

Boutip (6026) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear black color stout with a medium size brown foamy head with OK retention and light lacing notes. Aroma of black chocolates with light roasted malt notes is OK. Taste is a mix of black chocolates notes with light residuals sugar notes and dry roasted malt notes. Body is too thin for the style with good carbonation. Not bad but falls a bit short on character.

JulienHuxley (5659) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2010
On tap at TDD. Dark brown pour with hints of red. Nice roasted aroma mixed with candied fruits and coffee. Taste is not overwhelming, just a nice balance of fruity sweetness and roasted bitterness. Palate is a bit thin, but quite enjoyable.

tom10101 (5572) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle (600 ml). Split 4-ways. Dark brown with a medium quickly diminishing brown bubbly head leaving little lacing. Aroma is chocolate forward with vanilla notes, roasted malts, maple and raisins. Taste is slightly sweet with chocolate, raisins, plums, maple, vanilla, roasted malt and mild bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dried fruits finish. Good Baltic Porter that isnt too much on the sweet side. Interesting fruity features.

SlovakSniper (5276) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2010
En ft, Shawinigan, le 19 juin 2010. Bire brune fonce avec un petit col mousseux. Le nez est finement houblonn et prsente des notes de malt chocolat. De plus, rglisse et lgre touche de fruit. La bouche est aussi envahie par des notes finement torrfies et amres. Sur la langue et sous le palais, le liquide est plutt mince et est soutenu par une moyenne effervescence. La finale est plutt douce sur des notes qui rappellent la mlasse (ou le caramel brl).

Des notes de petits fruits sombres, mlasse, rable, vanille, coco et une certaine rsine de houblons qui colle aux sucres. Superbe.

Bamsen78 (5130) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy nearly black withairy but stable light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with fruity notes and touches of roast. Sweetish flavour of malt, caramel and fruit, with notes of yeast and roast, and bitter, hoppy touches. Roasty aftertaste with nutty notes. Medium body and medium to hogh carbonation. Not bad for a Baltic Porter made far away from the Baltic Sea!

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2016
Pours a quick dissipating brown head atop an opaque body. Nose of vanilla and chocolate. Flavour is smooth, sweet cocoa and coffee. Very tasty.
