Dégustée (en fût) le 31 mai 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D13C3K420i). Bière noire opaque. Col mince beige foncé crémeux et persistant. Odeur de sirop de café. Très douce, très sucrée, assez amère en finale. Goût de café noir marqué. Pas trop sirupeuse malgré le sucre, se boit bien, pas trop lourde. Peut-être un peu trop légère et mince. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2014

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2015 Beautiful dark coffee color with a weak aroma of burnt caramel. Its taste is well balance with mocca and molasse but misses out on precision. A small bitterness that makes this Baltic Porter refreshing. Cheers! wolffish (660) - Saint-Donat, CANADA - FEB 4, 2016
Juste bien dosé, pas trop lourd, j’aime beaucoup celui-là! La mousse est fine et crémeuse. En plus de la torréfaction, je goûte des fruits rouges foncé et de la vanille. Une excellente alternative aux comparables plus forts en alcool et moins axés sur la buvabilité... Diogène (1208) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle. Pitch black with a huge mocha head with great retention and nice lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate and herbal notes. Flavor is similar to the aromas with a rich malty profile, herbal hops and a moderately bitter finish with a hint of alcohol. Medium body with below average carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good and well balanced. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a white to off white foamy head dissipates appropriately. Messy run about lace.
The aroma starts off with a ruddy milk and dark chocolate blending with some candied dark fruits. Seems like there’s a subtle dried hoppy grassiness underneath. Light earthiness.
The flavor brings together the previously mentioned aromas sweetly layered with a delicate roast underneath. Smooth bitter yet somewhat wet sort of dark fruity aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable smooth feel to it. Low carbonation yields to the wet feel on my tongue.
Overall, nicely done Baltic Porter that I would have again. french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2008
Pitch black poor, thin beige head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, roasted malts. Full bodied, slightly too carbonated. Great balance. Flavors of dark coffee, blackberries, pommegranite and dark chocolate.
