750ml bottle shared with brother. Aroma: cherry, molasses, light ashes, light apples, shows some signs of ages. App: dark brown like a dark Pepsi, minimal beige head sign little lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, light to medium sweetness, light to medium body, soft carbonation, light to moderate acidity finish. Overall: not bad for a 2011. Tbh I expected this beer to an acidity bomb but it’s not. Body is a bit slim but that’s expected for this year. Good stuff.

Aucune mousse ne se forme ou presque sur une bière noire et très opaque. Des arômes de tabac et de fruits rouges me surprennent. Quelques effluves de soya viennent brouiller les cartes. En bouche, je suis surpris de constater des saveurs légèrement acétiques, mais ce n’est pas désagréable pour autant. Un peu de cerises noires se mêlent aux tanins de la barrique et au chocolat. Dans le cadre d’une dégustation verticale, la version 2011 n’a pas "scoré" très fort, mais bue individuellement, c’est encore excellent.

Pours your typical Porter/stout black, with a small tan head. Aroma is malts and maybe a hint of licorice. Hard to explain the taste, dark fruit, booze and chocolate maybe? overall its a good Baltic Porter but not the best Baltic I’ve had by far. Would drink again though. The warmer it gets the boozier it gets.

Real nice dark and sharp porter. Nice roasted flavourings and vanilla. Seriously well balanced.

Bottle at WVRST, but I forget when. :( Hints of bourbon and wood on the nose. The un-aged variant is one of my favourite beers with more complexity. Lovely.

Grande Cuvée - Édition spéciale vieillie en fût de bourbon. Année 2011, bouteille 275/700. Ouverte en mai 2014. Un goût riche et complexe qui fait pensé au porto. Une texture onctueuse, enrobante et chaleureuse. Mais je ne serais la décrire adéquatement et lui rendre l’hommage qu’elle mérite. Un grand cru, rien de moins. Merci beau-frère pour l’expérience!

Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle 750ml. [2010 version,412/700] Pours very dark brown with a pretty low beige "head". Minimal to no lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, wood, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is of bourbon, wood, dark fruits, caramel. Palate: Full bodied. Low, but existing carbonation. Overall: A tad heavy/swilly, but not cloying. Better than what I remembered.

75cl.Aromas bottle sweets reminiscent of applesauce Good head of a lovely creamy brown. The complex flavor notes include some molasses. Beer dominated by sweet molasses and caramel, with some smoked to final.The beer is very smooth on the palate. The fizz introduces a lot of depth. Overall a great beer and a good sipper.

Pours black with a sandy-tan head that lasts all week. Strong, good coffee scent, slight vanilla, toasty. First taste is a kick in the teeth with bittersweet chocolate, cooling to rich coffee, settling on a slightly sharp malty in the end. Would be better if it was a bit more on the bitter side, but then I do love black coffee. I will not hesitate to have again.
