jkwood04 (5058) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 14, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours near black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate notes, some dough, light bitterness, and hints of sweetness. Flavor the same with a nice dark malt note and a dry, roasty finish. Average texture. A really good porter.

Tapped at the Barhop in Toronto/Canada. Pitch black color when flash lighted. Beige head. I can’t remember the aroma anymore, because we got a bit drunk that evening. Taste however was a balanced mild taste of dark chocolate, coffee beans and the oatmeal gave a kind of tasty smoothness. Overall a very good brew!

neongolden (1012) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
(On tap at the brewpub, Mar 8 2014) Pours a very dark brown with a small pale tan cap of tiny bubbles. Aroma of roast malt, a little coffee, slightly nutty. On the palate, dark malt provides initial sweetness alongside a medium roast, some chocolate. The oats make themselves known mid-palate with a dry cereal character, along with some hop bitterness towards the finish that cuts right through the malt sweetness. The finish is very dry and oaty with a bit of roast. Fairly full-bodied for a porter thanks to oats, a little creamy, soft carb. I like the notion but thought the oats ended up killing a bit of the flavour later on. Still pretty good.

Bendrixian (1391) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
On tap at beerbistro, so it was served a little bit too cold, as all their beers seem to be. Pours jet black and has mocha, espresso and oatmeal like notes on the aroma. similar mocha, roast and oats on the flavour profile make this a darn tasty beer.

pushkinwow (2434) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
On tap at brewpub. Nice dark brown with beige head. Welcoming roasted malt with a bit of nutiness and coffee, smooth, moderate carbonation and body, chocolate and dry malt on the finish. Good porter.

sudomorph (994) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - 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.
