Appearance : Deep black medium head that doesn’t stay long.
Aroma : Light coffee and light red fruits. Some raisins. A bit mineral too. Roasted malt. Rather light overall.
Taste : Roasted malt with coffee and dark chocolate. A bit mineral. Finish has nice notes of chocolate and fruits with light licorice.
Overall : My mistake for waiting that long before having this one. I was sure it was a bigger beer than this. It’s still quite good though. Nice chocolate and roasted malt. Very nice finish. Quite drinkable. 110422.
Bottle @ Mondial de la bière 2009. Aroma is weird green olives at first but faded out. Then it was roasted malt and some sweetness. Taste is pretty much like aroma. Some smoky hints also. Finish is dry dark chocolate. I always have trouble appreciating porters. They are nice but I have a hard time finding the complexity in them. Nice brew ! 8,3,8,3,15;3.7. 090306.
In short: A well rounded smooth porter that has a bit of everything and a little too much sweetness.GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2009
How: Bottle 50cl. Consumed fresh, 1.5 years before best-before date.
The look: Black body topped by a medium light-brown head with medium retention
In long: This is a porter with plenty of flavour elements and none coming out strong. Medium roastiness, some roasted coffee beans, some black chocolate, some dark fruits, some vanilla, some roasted wood, good leafy hops presence. Body is slightly fluffy and very full for a 5% brew. Carbonation is a lot of very soft bubbles. Mouthfeel is cushiony. A superior session porter that could be excellent if a little less sweet. Another good brew from this fine brewery who like to nice session beers and put double-dots on their vowels.
