neongolden (413) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
(On tap at the DDC tap takeover @ barVolo, Aug 23 2014) Pours a very dark brown with a dark tan bubbly head leaving some lace. Aroma powerfully dark roast coffee, semisweet dark chocolate, vanilla bean, light soy, charred wood. Taste has sweetish dark malt with molasses, slight chocolate, overtaken by dark roast coffee and a restrained pine resin hop bitterness. Finish has roast and a bit of hops giving bitterness, light soy saltiness and coffee beans. Mouthfeel moderate and oily with average carb. Big flavours, great concentration and balance, no booze and so easy to drink. Hops are there for bittering but definitely not a modern black IPA. Fantastic porter!

Eructoblaster (3024) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
On tap at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal, QC). Very dark brown body with average, lasting, beige foamy head. Strong malty/hoppy aroma with roasted coffee hints. Its robust taste is dominated by roasty flavors. It carries yeasty and some subtle chocolate notes. Ends with a long bitter/roasty finish. Well done.

HopsandBolts (73) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours jet black with a few fingers of dense tan head. Lots of moca, coffee and chocolate aromas and flavours. This is an excellent porter.

SlovakSniper (3173) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
Un verre à Montréal. Version à 6.5%. Un liquide plutôt brun foncé. Un petit col mousseux. Une dentelle assez large. Des parfums presque fabuleux de café, de noix rôties, de chocolat au lait et de houblons en feuilles. Des saveurs intensément noires. Du tabac et des noix. Du chocolat et des houblons ténébreux. Un effet terreux. Un corps soyeux. Des bulles qui connaissent leur rôle. Une finale longue et savoureuse sur des notes terreuses de café, de chocolat et de houblons fumés. Un porter robuste de qualité supérieure. Extrêmement facile à boire. Une très belle création.

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
[Cask at ’Cask Days 2013’.] Beer #2 of the fest. Pours black with amber hues with a small long-lasting bubbly light-brown head. Really roasty aroma of malt and coffee along with some lactic notes, chocolate and light leafy hops -- quite nice. Interesting and big flavour, it’s boozy, roasty and quite bitter with a lot of coffee, some chocolate, cream, lots of leafy hops and a finish that is a touch harsh. Medium bodied, almost syrupy mouthfeel. An interesting beer that I wasn’t sure what style it was supposed to be but overall, I enjoyed it.

robinvboyer (3113) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2013
Cask Days 2013. I think this was my highlight beer of the festival. Jet black pour, with a big rocky, mocha head. The aroma is intoxicating! So much roast! roast, roast, and more roast. Bitter burnt, charred espresso malts. A huge dose of solid piney hope. Incredible! Carb and mouth feel as spot on.The finish is just more roast, and kick ass pine hops. Incredible stuff.

pushkinwow (2015) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
On cask at Beau’s Octoberfest. Light black pour with an off white head. Huge peat and smoke nose that assaults (in a good way) the senses without being meaty, very dry, some ash and tabacco, mild carbonation, moderate body, smooth, bit of chocolate, very dry, bitter and tasty.
