(Bottle) Pours a dark brown (almost black)with amber highlights and a small tan head. Better to have this one warmed up a bit to get more of the flavors and complexities of this wonderful porter. Has a delicious coffee, roasted malt, and molasses flavor. Great brew!

A Christmas gift from my brother-in-law and his boyfriend. I was underwhelmed and feel this is overrated. I like some robustness and some meat from my porters and this one was too delicate. Has a strong, rich milk chocolate aroma. Deep, deep ruby red body with slow carbonation and a small, light brown head that is mostly dissipating. Great lace. Subtle, yet rich and complex. Somewhat oily. Perhaps I pulled it out of the refrigerator too soon, as I think it would be better served colder. Luckily I have 5 more to try. Although this brew is worthy of any Porter lover, it is not as good as the MacTarnahans Bourbon Cask Aged Blackwatch Cream Porter I had earlier in the evening.

Beautiful dark ruby/black, quarter inch tan head. Smells of malts, nuts, chocolate, coffee. Nice coffee in the flavor, slightly metallic, a good balanced bitterness in the finish. Quite a smooth beer. A little cold at the moment. Can't wait til it warms up a little bit. But even this cold the flavor and bouwuet are awesome. Almost seems like its a draft. Awesome beer.

Smelled like a brewed pot of coffee from right out of the bottle. Deep black pour with a thin lacing tan head. Tastes like a cup of cold coffee with some molasses and roasted malt. Very well balanced, and a very good beer to have on a cold day trying to keep warm.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2003
Tasted in Toronto from the LCBO. Tasted in English pint glass. Pours very well from the bottle with a consistent and well maintained creamy white head. Colour is dark, almost black, but with a slightly reddish brown hue when held to the light. Aroma is very strong - chocolate, sweetness and a hint of alcohol. Taste is very nice - strong roasted malt chocolate flavour with a slight molassis ending and a very subtle burnt bitter finish. De facto reference model of the porter style.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 A surprisingly viscous pour gave way to a nice thick, rich head and a deep coffee aroma. The taste was heavily malted with coffee lingering in the palate. Fine stuff.

Gunny (41) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2003
Opaque brown in colour with a tightly bubbled, off-white head. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee with vinous undertones. Early bitterness is quickly balanced with malt and a silky mouthfeel. Lovely, lingering flavour of dark chocolate and coffee.

bottle-best by mar 3,03. Thanks again to Whaleman for hooking me up with this high rated brew. pours a deep burgandy color when held up to the light. very very mild carbonation. Nice english toffee and chocolate aroma-slightly smokey. flavor is very similar to the appearance, but kinda thin i thought for such a high rated brew. I think alpha klaus takes the porter cake here.

Beautiful pore, black as coal. nice chocolate head with lots of cocoa aroma with roasted coffee scents. Hint of alcohol and a very small smell of citrus. Head didn't last long though, and neither did the beer! Mild taste of ashes and chocolate. Very nice porter!!
