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!!

Beautiful dark chocolate color. Thin head, fine bubbles and lacing. Excellent roasted malt aroma-like a grainy cafe mocha. Tastes like it smells, perfectly balanced and very smooth with subtle, earthy Fuggles hop in the background, and roasted chocolatey malt flavor with touch of bitter coffee up front. No bad aftertastes. A model porter.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2004 This is a rock solid Porter and stands on top of the Porter hill for a reason. It pours a beautiful midnight black w/a good head, if a little thin with bigger bubbles than I'd expect and a bit weak on the lacing but that's just nit picking. Taste is a pleasure from the moment it hits your tongue. No harsh hop attack here, the bitterness only serves to compliment the fruit and roast undertones. It starts smooths and only gets smoother as it works it's way across you pallette. The finale is great with hints of an alcohol warmness (supprising for it's average ABV) that finishes the movement. Overall I'd highly remcommend this porter for any porter lover. This is one that even a Porter neophyte could love, not overly challanging but deep and complex. Two thumbs up!

Clear dark brown with ruby hints. The head diminshes quickly and is tan colored. Glass lacing is decent but not outstanding. The aroma is quite chocolately and a bit fruity, like a cabernet. The flavor is roasted malt and chocolate. The body is incredibly smooth! Quite yummy stuff.
