February 2017 - Bottle share at CBC Islington for the Matteo Farewell tasting, as ’Les Trois Mousquetaires G.C. Porter Baltique’. Had this one sent over from the Netherlands. Very dark brown with a red hue, foamy brown head. Aroma is chocolate syrup, light coffee and cola. Body is light, frothy with soft carbonation. Taste is sugary, molasses, cola syrup, chocolate liqueur, intensely sugary sweet with a spicy finish. A bit disappointing when you’ve paid the best part of £20! But it’s decent.

Bottle, aged since 2014. Pours opaque black, small creamy tan head, dissipates slowly to a nice residual ring and decent lacing. Aroma is molasses, anise, a bit woody, cocoa, tobacco, leather. Flavor is medium sweet, light plus bitter, hints of smoke along with loads of raw molasses and roasted malt. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty darn good. mateuszk (2683) - Poznań, POLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle, 2013. Almost opaque black with small head. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, caramel, dried fruits, light berry note. In taste caramel, some chocolate and lots of sweetness and fruitiness found usually in meads, but the beer was medium dry, not as sweet at all. Full body, soft carbonation, very oily and silky on the palate. Finish was rather sweetish but not clogging. Really great beer that got with age this great mead-like fruitiness and sweetness. Great brew. shawnmurphy (510) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2017
Large caged and corked bottle purchased from the brewery at the source, in Brossard, Quebec, Canada. Poured into a snifter pitch black with a thin tan head that immediately disappears. Slight lacing. Aroma is faint, but detect Kona coffee and salted caramel. Flavor is intense; where to begin: coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, black cherry, vanilla beans, slight campfire, molasses, raisins, figs, dates, almonds and filberts. If that sounds like a dessert, it is! With a thick, slick mouthfeel, this is a go-to winter sipper. fiery_1 (1180) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2016
750ml bottle @ home(thanks Sergiy). 2015 VintageSvartvit (574) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2016
Pours a mostly opaque black colour with a thin brown head. Nose is roasted malts, espresso, and hints of sweet dark fruits. Flavour is sweet and rich, espresso, dark fruits, very slight bitter finish with a tingling sensation on the tongue from the alcohol but no burning.
Bottle shared. Pours close to black with a small tan head. Aroma is full of dark fruits, raisins, chocolate, caramel malts and roast. Like a roasty quadrupel almost. Taste is over medium sweet and light bitter. Medium body, low carbonation.
