Porter Baltique Grand Cuvee 2011 – Les Trois Mousquetaires

From Brossard Quebec, Canada’s Les Trois Mousquetaires comes their “Porter Baltique Grand Cuvee 2011” a Baltic Porter.  This wonderful Corked beer won the Worlds Best Baltic Porter from the World Beer awards in 2010!  The beer pours a deep dark brown with a tan head.  The aroma of this beer is of roasted malts, chocolate, tart cherry and smoke.  The flavor is quite complex and differs some from most porters due to using lager yeast in the brew.  The flavor of the beer is of chocolate, mocha, nuts, cherry, toffee with some wood some and a mild bitterness.  I would have to say that this beer does live up to the hype on the bottle.  This once again proves that brewers in Quebec know what they are doing!  The beer comes in at an alcohol content of 10%
