3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this beer at Patty’s Pub. This beer pours an opaque jet black with a thin brown head. The aroma is of chocolate, liquorice, and espresso. The tasting notes included coffee, roasted malts, slightly sour mash, and sweet brown sugars, and an oily finish. Not bad, but I have had better.

Drank on tap (12 oz) at Black Tomato (Ottawa) on February 26, 2013. Very dark brown, thin head. Mocha coffee aroma quite sweet, very malty. Bitter coffee taste, but with a sweet touch, notes of chocolate malt, slightly bitter. Very comfortable to drink!

Pours a dark brown colour with some red highlights. Tanned head that goes down quickly, but leaves a creamy coating on the brew, with minimal lacing. Sweet toffee nose with hints of bananas mixed with the caramel malts. Medium-bodied with light creaminess and decent stickiness. Mild roasted malts with caramel notes. Not much coffee felt here. Little burnt malts slightly lingers. Does get better as it warms up (and with food), but seems like a light stout more than a coffee porter. Mild dark fruits eventually come out.

Tap at 2013 winterbrewed beer festival. No opportunity for this one to fully warm up with outside temperatures of -19C with windchill however did my best to enjoy this beer. First beer from this brewery. Some roasted malt, and bittersweet chocolate. Mild body and moderate carbonation. Fairly dry and a pleasant finish. Not bad at all.
