COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our porter is rich and robust, dark brown in colour with a dark roasted coffee nose, imparting an intense coffee flavour with notes of chocolate. Made with beans supplied by the Distillery Districtís Balzacís Coffee, this porter offers a rich, full and unique flavour. Currently, there are no other coffee-flavoured beers in the Ontario market.

jksipa (352) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle from the Beer Store. Pours black with a small dark tan head. Nose is coffee and chocolate and plums. Moderately sweet to start but coffee and chocolate bitterness create a nice dry finish. Medium creamy body and slightly soft carbonation; seems too light for a porter, but very tasty.

gegwilson (1167) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle given by Ellen and Malcolm. Thanks! Pours very dark with short lasting tan head. Too much carbonation. Quite sweet at first before a nice dry finish with lots of coffee and a hint of chocolate. Nice.

kerenmk (2377) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thank you Excellent Little Brother! Very dark brown, opaque, dark tan head. Sweet vanilla and coffee aroma, sweet, dry and roasty taste, then comes coffee sourness. Full body, sweetish coffee finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Dark brown to black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, some roastiness and light chocolate notes. Mildly roasty flavor with coffee beans, a bit "green" and a bit of nutty hints. Medium-bodied.

samzim (205) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 Rich aroma of dark roasted coffee and chocolate. Opaque deep brown colour with tints of red when held to the light. Heavy flavour of coffee as well as notes of dark chocolate with a medium bitterness. Full bodied without being to thick. Iíd definitely buy again

koppertone (43) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours a nice brown red. Lots of head that dissapates quickly. Smells like malts, coffee. Tastes similar with a nice balance of bitterness. No hops but donít expect much in this category. Decent and Iíd get again.

ljthiessen (392) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Dark pour, small off-white head. The aroma, while mild, is very pleasant dark coffee. Flavour is more coffee with malt and hints of vanilla and chocolate. Very clean, simple, tasty and easy drinking. I absolutely love the flavour, but I just wish there was more of it. Not very robust for a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stong coffee aroma and flavor with hints of chocolate, vanilla and yeast. Not too bitter, not too sweet.

HipHopOpotamus (229) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2013 A good tasting beer. I thought I should just try one thinking the coffee taste might be over powering like other coffee beers I have tasted (I am not much of a coffee drinker). But this one was well balanced, good tasting beer overall.
