Niall73 (2413) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown black with a tan head. Quite a sweet, lightly grassy, toasty aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. A touch thin, with sweet dark fruit, lemon, coke, some cakey stuff... Fine, a bit dull.

robinvboyer (3876) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2016
Big, rich, dark, and very roasty with some subtle fruit, and woody sweetness. Rich mouth feel, good carb. Medium to high bitterness, roasty, semi sweet finish, with some coffee, and soy overtones.

eaglefan538 (3009) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Pour from bottle was pretty black, some mahogany edges when held to light, very thin head that dissipated quickly, near zero lacing, pretty subpar appearance for style. Aroma of licorice, dark fruits, faint chocolate. Flavor the same with some caramel and bubblegum, lacking roast/ash/smoke presence, Mouthfeel was light on carbonation but sufficient for the style, lightly sticky, smooth. Not a bad brew, not a standout in the style, though.

Bouteille, 660 mL. Couleur : Reflets noirs avec un bon collet, l’effervescence semble limitée. Arômes : Fruits confis, caramel, café et une touche de cassonade? Ça semble prometteur! Goût : En bouche c’est décevant à la première gorgée, avec un goût un peu fade. On dirait presque une milk stout! On retrouve une rondeur du liquide qui nous rappelle celle du lait. Après plusieurs gorgées on retrouve un peu le côté un peu plus sucré qu’on trouvait au niveau des arômes. Appréciation : Au final c’est loin d’être une mauvaise bière, mais c’est un peu fade, même pour un porter... J’aime bien la rondeur de la Baron Noir, mais le manque de saveur est un peu dommage.

Tmoney99 (12991) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle. Poured dark clear brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium dark sweet flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

TheJester (2377) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2016
On tap at Volo. Looks like a porter. Small brown head. Sweet chocolate in the nose. Pretty simple. The flavour is not complex either, and the body is thin for the style. Not bad, but nothing special.

500 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roasted malt, dark fruit, a subtle smoked character, ash, chocolate, mild bitterness, very little sweetness, more dry, decent.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle shared by tmoney99. Dark fruit, herbal character, bit of roast, ash, more spicy than I’d like. Bit of smoke? Kind of soft, moderate carbonation. Medium to bigger body, mild chewiness. Dark brown color, kind of clear. Ring of tan head. Some bits of lace. Moderate-plus bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Mildly watery feel, but overall, nice flavor, very different, interesting stuff. Good for 5oz but more may have dragged for me.
