Subtle smokiness blends well with chocolate and vanilla. Medium to light body that definitely covers up the 6.5%. A surprisingly easy drinking beer.

dleblanc87 (15) - windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2015
Nice colour, aromas of chocolate n smoked wood(maybe hickory or maple). Nice crisp, mellow taste tbat doesnt linger on the palate too long like many porters. Nice session beer.

AgentAle (1111) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2015
Aroma is rich malts, molasses, caramel, hickory and smoked wood. Taste is sweet malts with fairly deep malt complexity. Balanced well with a light hopiness. Appearance is a dark amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

[6567-20140801] Bottle. Mild roasted meat and malt and fruity plum aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown black body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Toasted grains and chocolatey dust flavour. Medium-full body. Good, easy to drink. (7/4/8/3/15) 3.7

czar (5839) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
(bottle conditioning issue) pours clear dark brown, ruby tint, with an abnormal tall and creamy light beige head, good retention and lacing. lightly smoked vanilla beans, milk chocolate, peppery berries, dry ironed molasses, roasted coffee beans - slightly ashy and metallic, chalk, touch of carbonic acid, bittering resin. foamy carbonation, light body, dry, lightly smoked and grassy-spicy finish. minus bottling issue, this would have been a nice gently smoked and tasty porter.

The beer pours a coca-cola colour with a thin tan coloured rocky cap which lasts. The aroma is smoked wood, molasses and hints of licorice. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet malt, molasses, and smoke. Quite drinkable for 6.5%

codfishh (142) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2014
Poured from a 500ml bomber. Aroma is subtle smoke with some toasty malt and some sweet caramel. Some sweetness to start, pumpernickel and some caramel. The roast gives the beer some balance. Nice beer but not much smoke for a smoked porter.
