Keg @ Craft Beer Cafe Halifax. Nothing like a porter but good. When cold from keg smooth with initial nutty mouthfeel like melted hazelnut ice cream splashed with a dash of Speyside single malt. Well balanced. Very slight porter hints once warmed up. More mellow smoky roast comes through with a slight berry aroma. Hint of vanilla pod. Now I’m getting marshmallow - this beer is like something created by Willy Wonka. Now the hops are coming through with more roast after 20 mins. Bitterness towards the last mouthfull like cold espresso. Brilliant beer.

Poured from bottle, a darker caramel color. Small yellow brown head, with little lacing. Pleasant bread dough aroma, with a smooth malty taste. Mild hints of hops and a clean finish. An enjoyable porter to say the least.

Aromas of dark malts, coco powder, coffee roast, slight nuttiness, toffee and mocha. Appears black with a quick erasing foam. Taste is predominate black malt (perhaps a great deal of black patent), dark grains, toffee, roasted coffee, coffee oils, slight mocha and a faint nuttiness on the back end. Overall, very standard porter but drinks well.
