Pours a really dark brown with a little red around the edges and a small tan head. Lots of milk chocolate on the nose, nice coffee and toasted malt, a slight nuttiness and surprisingly hoppy. Nice hoppy nuttiness up front on the taste, strong coffee note, light chocolatey taste and slightly sweet toasted malt. Delicious, though I still think Founders might have done a better job.

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 perfectly sweet chocolate maltiness underneath. Creamy palate. Ashy bitterness on the finish. Very good.

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.

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 there’s a suggestion of hops and slight suggestion of roasted barley==just enough. Still haven’t had a better porter.

Darwenus (659) - Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Pours dark brown with a little more than average head. The aroma is anise, baker’s chocolate, coffee. That’s all present in the flavor, too. The finish is a strong, roasted malt and a little hop tingle. This is an affordable porter, and it’s low price and high quality make it one worth seeking out.
