Opaque black colouring, with a nice mocha head, leaving beautiful lacing designs behind. The aromas are explosive, with, dark chocolate, toasted malts, and rum getting right up in your face. The mouthfeel is viscous and fairly thick. Tastes are more of what the nose is signalling, but there is a definite alcohol warming burn on the swallow and traveling down into my chest. Easily one of my favourite porters. Maybe the best.

650 ml bottle from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours an opaque black with a finger of tan head that dissipates quickly. Leaves fairly thick dense lacing.

Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, burnt malt, dates, figs, nuts.

Flavours: Coffee, dark chocolate, mocha, burnt malt, molasses, oak, some tobacco notes, hints of rye, liquorice and rum.

Mouthfeel: Thick and smooth with light carbonation.

Overall: This one is a great Porter although I was expecting a bit more rum flavour. The mouthfeel was nice and thick with layers of aromas and flavours.

Rating #1068 - April 28, 2014 - #beerguychrisgeekbeer for #week16- $650mL bottle from CBI. Aroma is heavy roast malt,lots of vanilla, and spice - rum barrel character is omnipresent. Taste is mild bitterness, medium-heavy alcohol character. Really cool porter, which easily stands up with some of the bigger Imperial Stouts. Has a cool demerara sugar, molasses character that puts it in a class of its own. Obscene.

Gorbalev (2981) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle, Embrun LCBO. Pitch black, foamy tan head. Aroma of wood, booze, and almost a fusel alcohol character. Silky body, roast up front, gives way to huge alcohol kick and a ton of wood. Wow, that is an ear warmer. Subsequent sips and I am really enjoying the mix of a classic (albeit amped up) porter with some huge alcohol and wood notes. Roast comes through very well and finishes velvet like silky smooth on the tongue. Get past some of those fusel alcohol notes and this is a winner.
