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.

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.

flatmatt (1487) - Northville, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2016
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.

jkwood04 (5293) - 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.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap. Very dark brown, tan head. Nose is berry coffee, chocolate. Flavour also has vanilla, really well balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Really well done. So so smooth.

TheJester (2542) - 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.

Not usually a porter person, but this is always a consistent great beer and a great bottle to have in the fridge. Dark chocolate brown in colour and notes, has some coffee hints and roast - but smooth, so smooth. Could convert me to porters if they all tasted this good.

jercraigs (9872) - 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
