GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a dark black with a bit of tan head that dissipates quickly. Smell is lots of coffee, some chocolate, and a hint of citrus hops. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied and has a good amount of carbonation. Taste is slightly bitter at first with a bit of sweetness, but then gives way to a very long lasting roastiness that you can both feel and taste. Pretty good porter.

daleharshman (1023) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2016
"Packaged April 3, 2014"...two years old now. 12 ounce bottle purchased at Bine & Vine ($2.19). POURS a very dark brown (basically black) with a good finger and a half of tan foam. AROMA of quality roasted malts, mild coffee, leather, with a bit of nutty vanilla. FLAVOR of earthy dark malts, some dark chocolate, light black coffee, and dark caramel. A bit of lingering roastiness into the finish. Somehow this is overly light in body. Not bad but was hoping for more heft and character. (1493, 1021)

zubblwump (7) - Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2016 does not count
Nice and dark, without much head. Lacing was minimal. Aroma was good, but very subtle. Smoky and sweet taste, with just a little bitter aftertaste. Overall, a decent beer, but kind of forgettable.
