A standard porter with coffee. Pretty much sums it up. Kinda thin mouthfeel, and high carbonation. Doesn’t make me want to drink more from this brewer, but I’m happy to have tried it.

Its a dark black beer,with a creamy mocha head. You can smell some roastedness,chocolate & smoke. Taste allways starts of watery,then eather roasted taste comes next or you get hops or carbonation on the tounge,then an aftertaste of some sourness and a smoothness with chocolate taste from the chocolate malt. Not the best porter for the few or so I have had but I love dark beer’s and wish i xcould easily review more,more often. cheer’s.

Tessic (840) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2011
This porter poured a black colour with a tan coloured, rocky head. Light lacing. To the nose there are scents of caramel, coffee, cocoa and cereal. First sip was smooth and slightly bitter with strong flavour of coffee and burnt caramel. Finish is very lightly hoppy with the burnt flavour lingering on the palate.

(bottle) clear, dark brown colour with small tan head; aroma of roast, coffee; balanced, dry flavour, coffee is not overpowering like in many similar beers

A hard taste of smoked barbeque. There is little or no sourness in this porter, and the mocha taste a dead giveaway. It’s pretty decent - had it on tap. Been thinking about buying the bottle at licbo for a while but at ten bucks it’s fairly expensive...esp when trappist triples are going for six/seven bucks

Smokey mocha flavor, thinner body, bitter sweet. I like it. I have yet to find a beer from Lake of Bays that I didn’t like.

Pours black with moderate beige head. Phenomenal coffee aroma. Surprising light-bodied beer - coffee and chocolate flavors, slightly acidic. Coffee flavor lingers through the finish. Okay, easy-drinking beer.
