A robust porter, dark brown in color and full-bodied with a malty sweet taste. Deep roasted, yet silky-smooth! Two types of roasted malts, including deep-roasted chocolate malt are used to give this porter a rich, chocolately taste.

Wonderful, tasty porter. Nice mouth-feel and roasty flavor. I love sweet, malty flavors and lower hops in my porter and this one fits the bill.

malty and roasty and beery. body on the thinner side with a bit of grain. refreshing and tasty with caramel like flavor and cocoa. nice balance but still malty. some sweetness. one to keep coming back to. all kidding aside could use a better name.

Pours black with a thin tan head. Heavy body but not oily. Nice roasted nuts and malts aroma. Very smooth with descent lingering flavor. It feels more like a stout. Flavor is good but somewhat one dimensional. It didn’t matter to me since it was a good roasted malt flavor and not too much on the coffee side. Flavor lingered in the mouth but didn’t fill up the cheeks like a good stout, probably since it is a little lower in alcohol. No harshness or bitterness. Smooth finish. Really enjoyed this. I tried numerous Porters and Stouts and have only found a few that I really liked and this was one of them. A little more variety with the flavor would make it even better.

Finhead (1485) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2015
A black pour that is dark brown around the edges with an off-white head. The aroma has dark chocolate, roasted nuts, and a hint of vanilla. It has a medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a semi-dry, roasted finish.

pootzboy (1678) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2015
1st bottle from my stateside run - pours a deep opaque black with a 1 finger tan cap. Thick oily body - aroma is a wonderful amalgam of malts - coffee, cocoa, roast, nutty - with a small flare of fruit. Rich mouthfeel, deeply flavorful with chewy bundt cake malts in front, light hazel nut tones, long wet finish with just a hint of fruit. F’n glorious brew but what is it? It’s not a porter - maybe a thick stout with brown ale yeast - dunno, who cares It drinks well.

sudomorph (994) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a deep black with a one finger, tan head that sticks to the glass nicely. Aroma is pleasing with nice notes of dark chocolate, peanut shells, roasted malts, slight coffee, dark caramel, toffee, and a hint of floral hops. Taste is a balanced bitter. Dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, peanut shells, caramel, slight dark fruits, and as odd as it seems, banana at the end. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Creamy but not syrupy in the mouth with a soft, round carbonation and a dry finish. Overall a great porter. Dark chocolate, coffee, toffee, bread, and dark fruits.

Aroma is mostly malts. Taste is primarily roasted nuts and malts. Overall not the best porter, but not bad.
