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.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2011
Tap at the Rhino. Deep brown pour with a thin, tight tan head. The aroma is nicely chocolately. A little bit of soft coffee and a fairly rich malt base. There is a fairly fruity aroma through the middle (blackberry and a bit of toasted fruit as well). Soft and slightly sweet with a lingering sort of earthiness. Nice and balanced. It doesn’t really taste like 6.9 but it’s still tasty.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2011
2011-09-21. Black body with a nice beige head and lace. 4+ Modestly roasty aroma, modest sweet malt undercurrents. 7+ Flavour is similar, modest roast with a sweetish malt base, very light roasty bitterness. 7+ Smooth average to medium bodied palate. 3+ A bit mild for a porter, I actually had to double check to confirm I hadn’t been served the mild, but it is superbly drinkable and like their other offerings on tap tonight feels like it is designed to be full flavoured yet emminently sessionable. Nice. 7+/5/7+/4/15 On tap as "Breakfast Porter" at Burger Bar, Toronto

2011-08-28. Black body with a nice tan head. 4+ Pleasant porter flavour - mild roast over a fairly sweet body, dark malt, light herbal anise like character in the finish. 7+ Aroma has a tangy fruity quality to it. Mild roast over dark malt. 7+ Smooth average plus body. 3+ A pretty solid porter! 7/5/7/3/15+ On tap at Brewers Market, Toronto

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
August 23, 2011 - on draught at Burger Bar. Dark ruby-brown with an average creamy beige head. Classic porter aroma, if a bit on the sweet grain side - dry, roasty, a little acidic, quite nutty with some chocolate and light floral bitterness. Taste is simple, not as sweet, a hint of licorice and mint, definitely a little lactic - the oats make it nice and smooth. Light body, decent carbonation, kind of a bitter, lightly acidic finish, a nice roast malt aftertaste.

blankboy (5966) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2011
Draught at Burger Bar. Pours dark brown, almost black, with an average size semi-lasting frothy tan head with decent lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of roasted malt, light coffee, chocolate, a touch of vanilla and some light leafy hops. Flavour of roasted malt, chocolate and some sweetness, a bit sweeter then the aroma suggests. Lightly roasty finish. Medium bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
