The bodyís good enough and the coffee meshes well with the porter so Iím happy with it. Not jumping around but a little grin. Thatís all I could ask for I suppose. The head was quite beautiful. Coffee was mostly in the smell and slightly in the aftertaste, didnít carry a punch, but I guess thatís not what they were going for. Very good for a new brewery, looking forward to the future.

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.

radiomgb (2391) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
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.

BigBeer45 (1273) - Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2014
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.
