sudomorph (882) - 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.

solidfunk (5158) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 7, 2013
UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Super interesting for a porter. Pours cloudy brown with great initial head and lacing. Smells of malt and hops. The oats really bring a cereal taste into this. Medium palate with a medium bitter finish. On tap at brewpub.

jjarovi (55) - markham, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2012
Not usually a porter guy but this blew me away. Had a sip of a friends and bought two more - on tap at the brewery. Very full body and nice smoothness while still having great balance of coffee, chocolate and bitter notes. Very complex for a porter and may be ebst one I’ve had.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
On tap. Mahogany pour. I got no head on this but he warned me the keg was tapped 4 days ago. Mocha, nutty, slight booze, coffee and licorice. Nice and smooth, not overly rich or thick. Roasted, nutty flavours. Sweet maltiness followed with a mildly bitter medium finish. Booze well hidden. Warmed the cockles.

A deep dark porter with a thin brown head. In aroma, a smooth chocolate with light rum notes, not bad. In mouth, a nice chocolate malt with light vanilla, coffee, toffee, nice. Cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest Sept 29 2012.
