COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The porter is a dark brown sweet full-bodied beer. There is an initial citrus hop flavour right at the beginning which gives way to chocolate, caramel and toffee flavors. There is no roast flavor at all. The Porter has nitrogen which gives it a full-bodied, creamy texture. The nitrogen helps to hold in most of the sweet flavor and aroma until it is drank. It can take a little longer to pour and will have the nice creamy cascade effect like a Guinness. The original porter was brown, low in alcohol and sweet. The porter as a style is a precursor to the more commonly known stout. Porters since that have evolved to become richer, darker and more alcoholic. Our porter is an homage to the original easy dtinking beer.

A deep dark brown porter with a thick frothy nitro brown head. In aroma, light grassy chocolate malt with grainy notes, OK. In mouth, a dry powdery chocolate malt with light grassy notes, watery, so-so. On tap at Westboro location.

Metalchopz (2317) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2012
Their 2012 edition was released last week, with an outside party in the cold. Now, enjoying it inside. The head is beautifully creamy, beige, lasts the whole time and gives out decent lacing. The brew is clean and copper colour. Butterscotch nose with a little caramel and roasted malts. Wet refreshing, but kind of light mouthfeel. Mildly creamy when sipping the head (creamed up by the nitro). The roasted malt blends well with the hop, to not have too much burnt taste. Fruity notes (apples), nuts, molasses and very mild coffee. Too cold at first, but as it warmed up, it became much better. Easy drinkability as not too thick.

Ruby red with a brown tint and a frothy creamy tan head. Berry, caramel and light roast in the nose. Creamy medium thin body with a light froth is smooth and slightly prickly. Canadians serve their ale too cold. Taste of light bitter roast start. with chocolate and a caramel and a light ginger spice. Like a mild but very easy to drink and finish. Slightly berry with a raisin. The best Clocktower I’ve had so far.
