3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A tulip glass showing half a finger of latte colored foam and coffee brown center.
The nose shows lightly roasted malts with a light vanilla in the background coming together to show an adzuki-like sweetness.
The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated but very foamy. Light flavors of roasted yet sweet adzuiki light malts. Light coffee on the finish and a good coffee flavor on the linger. Overall, simple yet tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear dark brown with a beige head. Nose: a little ground cumin at first.. Odd.. Then more rosted notes follow, although it’s all very restrained. Wallnuts too.. Taste: like a light stout but at only 5.8% this packs an okay punch flavor-wise. Mouthfell is medium and the aftertaste has lightly roasted malts, licorice and coffee. Not bad at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is opaque dark reddish brown, with a small slightly off white head.
Aroma is nicely roasted, with some coffee and a lot of licorice present. Slight ash and bitter chocolate. Slight asphalt notes as well. (Ye. I’ve been licking the pavement from time to time)
Taste has very slight sweet notes up front, but is dominantly bitter.
Medium bodied, with a somewhat fizzy carb.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2015 Bottle at home. Black pour. Creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate. Flavor follows suit with smoky vanilla notes, ash, woody, and a sweet chocolate maltiness underneath. Creamy palate. Ashy bitterness with stale, musty tasting hops on the finish.

12 oz bottle. Simply put -easily one of the 3 best porters I have ever had, and porters are my favorite type of beer. They turned up the coffee on this one. This is one gorgeous looking beer. Now I have to find it on tap somewhere.

Gordon Lightfoot would roll over in his grave (is he dead?) if he knew that a beer named after one of his most famous songs was this bad. If you would like to try a Porter, skip this one. Thanks.
