On tap. Heartland really knows its dark beers with the stout and this porter. Great chocolate, brown sugar and molasses taste. Had a nice medium creamy body. It finished off perfect with the honey sweetness. Probably one of my favourite porters.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark mahogany red, thick, pillowy head with good retention and lacing. Aromas of molasses, caramel, honey, and a bit of carmelized/burnt sugar. Honey is stronger in the taste than it was in the smell. Toffee and caramel flavors are also evident, but the sweetness from the honey wins out. Medium to full bodied, good carbonation and a lingering sweetness.
