A smokey chocolate wonderful, Iím a pale lager lover, but this may change everything. I figured I perferred stout to a porter, but this porter...mmm this porter

Bottled. When I first tasted this beer cask conditioned, it turned my world upside down, regarding how a porter could taste. On bottle it is not nearly as good, but still excellent. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor is full of caramel and roast. Good carbonation. Very smooth session porter, evenhough it is a bit on the sweet side.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Much stronger orange tint than the average porter. Typical pleasant aroma, with a strong element of cocoa - but in the sense of Nestle Quik as opposed to "real" cocoa. Flavor is definitely more complex than the typical porter. Here the Quik element is gone and smoky malt flavors meld with TRUE cocoa elements and great bitter fuggles. Finish is crisp and refreshing.

Dark dark red, roasted malty molasses aroma is nice. Smooth creamy mouthfeel...damn...the bottles empty already! Well balanced with a mildly tart roasted coffee finish. Definitly my favorite Porter, but not my favorite kinda brew.

Pours deep reddish brown. Dark reddish brown, good head, med. bubbles, last through full pint. Very subtitle aroma. Flavors are chocolate and caramel in a smooth, silky body. Finishes will light bitterness coated in caramel.

Clear, black-ruby with a nice, foamy head that formed good lacing. Aroma was strong toasted malt with some English hops and butterscotch. Spicy, melanoidin malt that was in good balance with bitterness that came from both the malt and the hops. Roasty caramel apples (not acetaldehyde). Medium body with perfect carbonation. Surprisingly gentle finish. This is world class stuff.

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - FEB 13, 2005
Dark dark with small shortlived head. Chocolate, roasty & coffee-like with the thick tangy malty porter character. A very good example of the style.

chandernagor (39) - Oak Park, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Dark brown, almost black, with a big frothy creamy head. Aroma is hazelnut, chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg and cocoa. Flavor is chocolate and coffee, roasted malts, caramel and plums. A hint of nuts and smoke on the finish. Really nice mouthfeel, smooth, a bit thicker than the average porters Iíve tried.

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2005
Somewhere between black and brown, sweet aroma. Taste is a nice blend of chocolate, coffe and malt. Very smooth, very nice mouthfeel. Goes great with deserts or is a great desert on its own. Excellent brew.

Roasty smoky flavor. Not sure how it looks -- drank it out of the bottle, but Iíll give it the benefit of the doubt on that one. Flavors are roasted malt, coffee, no hops, smoky finish. Amazing texture -- very thick for a porter. Delicious.
