A: no head retention ... no lacing... ruby red (pepsi color) wft its supposed to be a porter so pitch black is a basic rule...

S: Horrible acid smell... old coffee

t: Coffee and more coffee... look like he put more and more coffee to give it some taste (with a major lack of malt)

m: no carbonation at all.. veery thin with an horrible acid after taste....

o: its time for brasseur illimité to stop laught at his customer and make decent beer at a decent price highly overrated brewery... go to the drain

Bottle: Poured a clear dark porter with a small bubbly head with limited retention and not much lacing. Aroma of dry floral coffee notes is dominant with weird unrefined grain notes. Taste is a mix between some dry floral coffee notes which are quiet nice but the malt backbone is off with some unrefined cereal notes with some herbal roasted notes. Body is a bit light with cola like carbonation which doesn’t really work well. Good intention but not a beer I would seek on a regular basis.

Black color beer. No head, or there is a head but so thin and it disappear quickly. The smell is chocolate, coffee but some limestone ?!? strange. not that inviting.

The taste is pretty intense in dark chocolate. Its like licking a dark chocolate bar. Quite effervescent... Thin. Average beer in my opinion.
