[4372-20120412] Cask. Light bandaid roast wooden leaf aroma. Dark brown black body with a quick bubbly tan head. Bitter grainy wood malt flavour has a bittersweet roasted finish. Medium-full body. Tasty but odd balance. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4
Overheard: "The crazy just exploded all over the streetcar."

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2012
2012-04-12. Black with a small bubbly tan head 3+ Mild aroma, sweet, light roast and sugary sweetness, mild maple character. 7+ Flavour is similarly quite sweet with mild dark malt character, sugary syrup, mild maple. 7+ Smooth syrupy body is slightly under carbonated. Enjoyable, its just a bit too sweet. Some more carbonation would likely cut that a bit. Better suited to draft in my opinion, but likely harder to create that way. On cask at Project X, Victory Cafe, Toronto

Spab (3432) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
On cask at Project X (at the Victory Cafe). Pours a dark brown/black with small tan head. Aroma is roasty malt with some other vague sweetness. Sweetness is more apparent as maple in flavour with roast a little subtler. Good.

Gravity cask at Victory Cafe, December 22, 2011. Clear but nearly opaque ruby-black - decent smallish lasting frothy light brown head. Interesting aroma, very mild and subtle - roast, some lactic tartness, not sweet but there is a real fresh maple sap (not syrup) character, with a hint of campfire. Tastes like a solid dry porter with just a slight admixture of maple, a bit herbal in the finish. Average body, slick, mild carbonation (not bad for cask) with a building, slightly spicy bitterness which builds to quite a respectable intensity by end - leaves a somewhat sticky residue on the lips too.

Cask at The Victory. Dec. 22, 2011. Pours a very dark ruby-brown with an average size mostly-lasting frothy light-brown head. Decent lacing on the glass. Very nice aroma and flavour of chocolate, roasted malt, lots of leafy hops and just a bit of maple syrup. Surprising amount of hops in this, which is great. Nice bitter finish. Average to medium bodied, almost creamy mouthfeel. An excellent Porter, I really enjoyed it.
