Pours like used motor oil. This used motor oil is then topped by a bubbly head that settles down into a nice brownish ring. It smells a bit ash-y, roasty with a slight hint of the spirits that used to live in these barrels that they used. Taste is nice, with again some roasted malt induced bitterness and not that much sugar (it ends up quite dry). Hops are in the background but still a good part of the experience too. Flavors of whiskey then appear only to leave your chest warm and satisfied. Alcohol is still very well hidden, don’t you worry about that. Happy New Year, people of Ratebeer!

AleRider78 (897) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
This one says barrel aged in Tennessee whiskey. ooh! Poured a very thick large bubbly mocha coloured head. Has an extremely dark appearance, almost pitch black. Leaves thick patchy lacing. Aromas of breads and toasty malts, somewhat sweet with toffee and caramel, and herbal hops. Flavours are quite strong and bitter. Some dark roasted malt flavours, nuts, coffee, chocolate, spices, notes of resin hops and a bit of barley. Faint taste of whiskey that lingers, and at 50ibu, seems more bitter. Also, the alcohol is pretty apparent but not too offensive. Some very subtle hints of mocha and caramel. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel, actually quite smooth and slightly warming on the palate. Very good strong beer, at 10%abv.

Wow, quel délice! Je ne suis pas un fan de Bourbon mais ici, c’est juste bien dosé. Je déguste actuellement le brassin 2015 et c’est foutrement bon. Malgré la présence marquée des malts foncés, les houblons sont quand même bien présents, de même que la vanille et des agrumes. Un chef-d’oeuvre...

Ayant dégusté la Robust Tennessee pas bien longtemps avant, j’appréhendais l’ouverture de cette bière (et pas juste en raison de la cire autour du goulot). Aurai-je droit à la même acidité mal placée? Eh bien non, malt rôti, café, chocolat noir, boisé, belle chaleur d’alcool. Une Imperial Stout en fut qui ne détonne pas, mais qui remplit à merveille son rôle.

On tap at Pit Caribou Montreal. Pitch black with a nice thick tan fosm that melt at the same rste thatI drink it. Smell oak smd bourbon, dark sugar. The notes of vinagar is a bit too present for the style. It's killed the bourbon that csn re-appear later. Medium body, average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LouisP (338) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Bouteille de 500 mL. Couleur : La bière est noire avec un petit collet de carbonatation, et effervescence moyenne. Arômes : On sent grandement le Malt torréfié, le chocolat noir, ainsi que les grains de café. Goût : Surprise, on goûte beaucoul la vanille, dû à son processus de vieillissement, le goût de l’alcool, avec une touche assez café, ainsi qu’une dose d’amertume. Appréciation : Bien fait, mais sans plus. Peut-être un peu trop gros goût de barrique de bourbon pour mes goûts personnels.

Good ageing flavour, a tasty imperial porter. Big bubbly mocha head, and lace. Grows on me, candi and roast, and good bourbon.

500ml bottle from Dépanneur La Duchesse d’Aiguillon in Quebec City, Quebec. Black in colour with a long lasting beige head, excellent retention, excellent lacing. The aroma is of chocolate, espresso, oak, roasty. The flavour is oaky, chocolate, some roast, light alcohol. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet, oaky. A nice barrel aged porter. Not as thinned out as other barrel aged beers.

neongolden (1350) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2016
(500ml 2014 bottle from the lovely phyllomedusa) Pours black with a small dense whitish head and lace. Aroma of chocolate coloured coffee beans, vanilla, cold coffee, light caramel, some whiskey and light char. Flavour is lightly sweet coffee and dark chocolate, vanilla, toasted wood, leather, moderate roast. Finish is moderately bitter with roast, oak and coffee. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, no alcohol. The nose on this is a real standout, while the palate backs it up even though it’s a bit light in the mouth for 10%. A very pleasant surprise from Pit-Caribou.

Apparence: D?une couleur noir opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse crémeuse d?une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt torréfié, de vanille et des légères notes d’anis. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps moyen. Au goût, c’est des flaveurs de malt torréfié, de vanille et légèrement d’alcool. Finale moyenne, avec aucune effervescence et idem pour l’amertume. Commentaires: Voici une excellente bière unique qui peut difficilement être comparée à quoique ce soit. Excellent assemblage avec un bel équilibre des flaveurs. Fiche technique Style: Impériale Porter Format: 500 ml Taux d?alcool : 7% IBU: 40
