4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
What a nummy beer. Not my favorite porter, but this one definitely has a great malty, coffee, chocolate flavor. More chocolate than coffee (I imagine thatís the idea) and I liked that. Poured into a tulip (is that appropriate? I think so) and the head endures for a long time. Residual sticky head on the sides of the glass, amazingly dark color; beautiful. The taste is a medium-heavy sweet with a very hidden hop presence. Must say I hated it the first time I tried it but feel like Iím appreciating more subtle brews as I try more.

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.

Probably the first porter I became really familiar with. Aroma is really nothing spectacular--kind of chocolate milk/mocha. Beautiful reddish-dark brown, but not opaque. Nice tightly knit head. Taste is coffee--chocolate, kind of sweet, but thereís a suggestion of hops and slight suggestion of roasted barley==just enough. Still havenít had a better porter.

Pours dark brown with a little more than average head. The aroma is anise, bakerís chocolate, coffee. Thatís all present in the flavor, too. The finish is a strong, roasted malt and a little hop tingle. This is an affordable porter, and itís low price and high quality make it one worth seeking out.
