3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Dark brown color, decent sized beige head that leaves fair lacing. Don’t get a lot of aroma. Taste is malts, caramel, lightly earthy, a bit dry, a hint of chocolate and roastyness. Good porter flavors, but I feel the aroma is a bit faint. Nice beer though. Quite enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown in colour with a thin tan head, good lacing. The aroma is of milk chocolate and vanilla. The flavour is moderately sweet, lots of vanilla, small roast, light chocolate. Thin mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long and sweet. A bit too sweet for me, lots of vanilla throughout this.
500ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario.
Best before end of July 2014.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Metallic, slight chocolate and thick vanilla hint in the nose. I don’t like the metallicness to it. Black with barely any head. The metalicity is still apparent in the flavour but less so, we’ve got a subtle sweetness with the vanilla and I can really taste the lightly roasted chocolate malt in this one, something I don’t remember of this beer from before.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown bodied with bubbly tan head. Very cacao like, raw cereal and a clean yeast. Simply speak the smell of a chocolate malt freshly grounded. Light bitterness, yet dry and so the chocolate still stands out. Small fitting carbonation. Very nice brew, low in alcohol yet rich enough in flavour. (50cl bottle from Beer City)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 500ml. Black pour with a small off-white head that quickly dissipates. Very nice aroma of chocolate malt and some hints of blackberry. Flavour has chocolate, smooth vanilla and some woody notes. Some citrus in the finish. A really enjoyable brew.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 I am not to much a fan on strong high alcohol % stouts and porters, so this one is probably the best porter I have drank. Very enjoyable but delicious. Top notch for me!
