sudomorph (1012) - Barrie, Ontario, - OCT 26, 2013
Cask Days 2013. Not sure if it’s bourbon aged. Pours a very dark brown with a a few bubbles around the ring. Aroma has hints of booze, caramel, and roasted malts. Taste is sweet but not unbalanced. Medium sweet/bitter aftertaste. Low-medium body and carbonation. Overall not bad. A bit thin with not much but a boozy flavor. Might order again to retry.

On tap at Indie. Pours black with an off-white head. Rich coffee aroma with notes of cocoa and dark fruit, toffee. Roasty coffee flavor turning into toffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Really pretty impressed with this one; took a couple bottles home.

Ferris (10587) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2015
Draft - Nice roasty notes and some dark chocolate. Deep jet brown with a light brown head. Cocoa and lots of nutty sweet notes. Odd for a porter but pleasant.

TheJester (2379) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Stout brown, not much head. Smells a little roasty. Taste is sweet, roasty, and nutty. Body is excellent. Oatmeal. Great beer.

adamnowek (1433) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2015
Dark and delicious. Unlike other Indie offerings, this brew has a smooth texture with a hint of coffee, chocolate, and hops.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6204) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2015 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with an enormous foamy tan head that faded quickly but left good lacing. The aroma was coffee, a bit roasty and woody. The flavor was bitter and roasty with coffee, a hint of vanilla and wood. Long finish. Medium body. Meh.

Listigovers (725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
Black beer with brown head. Coffee is the aroma and flavor, medium bodied, aftertaste builds with roasted flavours. Could be a bit richer, fairly nice.

robinvboyer (3886) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2015
Solid porter! Good, rich malts, nice cocoa notes, with some nuttiness, and subtle hops. Great mouthfeel and carb. Finish is medium bitter with loads of nutty and chocolatey goodness.
