Looks like a coke. With head. Very strong coffee scent. Dark chocolate and something sweet. Very smoky mouth. Smoked cheese, smoked chocolate cheese. Thick. Sweet. Rich. Heavy. Nice but very rich, a bit too much. Good but a bit unbalanced.

I thought this was quite good. Very nice looking beer that showcased creamy mocha head. Totally coffee and chocolate driven with roasted grains, raisins, and sour cherry complementing the base flavors nicely.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Deep brown in colour with a very thin beige head, very light lacing. The aroma is of chocolate, some coffee, light roast, smoke. The flavour is of roasted malts, some chocolate and caramel sweetness, light smoke, coffee. Thin mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes fairly quick, roasty. Alright, too thin though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Champanes,
this beer had a clear dark brown pour and gave a small off-white / light tan cover that receded to ring and small islands,
the nose had aromas of toasted and roasted malt with coffee, a little chocolate, some brown sugar and caramel sweetness,
the flavors were pretty much the same as the aroma except the coffee was a little bigger on the mouth than on the nose,
the finish tasted like it had a little roasted malt bitterness and very little hop bitterness with some coffee flavor following,
the mouth feel was light and thin and it had average carbonation,
a so-so porter drink, at least it was drinkable unlike a couple of their other beers.
