2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
ENG: 341ml bottle from Liquor Mart Winnipeg. Poured into the tulip. Almost pitch black in color, with little red highlights, medium dark-beige head. Aromas of roasted coffee, maybe bit of chocolate. Taste of very dark coffee, very dark chocolate, quite dry - bitter, a bit alcoholic, a bit roasted caramels, malts, with soury-bittery aftertaste. Low to medium carbonation and medium body. Overall tastes more like an Imperial Stout to me, not a Porter, but it’s too weak for Imperial Stout too. Not bad beer but there was nothing special in it to be honest.
PL: Butelka 341ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg. Przelane do kieliszka. Niemal czarna barwa z lekkimi czerwonymi przebłyskami, średnia ciemno-beżowa piana. Aromaty palonej kawy, może nieco czekolady. W smaku bardzo gorzka czekolada, całkiem wytrawne, gorzkie, nieco alkoholu, nieco palonych karmeli, słody, posmak kwaśnawo-gorzki. Niskie do średniego nasycenie, średnie ciało. Podsumowując jak na mój gust smakuje bardziej jak Imperial Stout a nie Porter, ale z kolei jest za słabe na Imperial Stouta. Może nie jest to złe piwo ale nie ma w nim niczego zachwycającego.

Noir avec un petit col marron. L’arôme du café et chocolat. Le goût est pareille avec un peu d’amertume dans la finale. Pas trop complexe mais bonne.

Pours almost black with a little head. Not much lacing. The taste is of bitter coffee with sour notes that really through me. A little thinner than I had expected. Not as much Porter as I would have liked. Good beer though.

I actually had hope for this beer, given the its favourable scores here, but yet again I find myself underwhelmed by a Mill Street offering. It looks ok, though there’s no retention or lacing at all, so it could be a glass of coke. Nose is faint coffee and chocolate, and very little else. Taste is stale coffee and chocolate and watery. This tasted really watery to me. The finish is dryish, but in an acidic, almost sour kind of way. I’m really not sure what the fuss is about, nor am I sure why I keep trying Mill Street beers.

Pours pitch black with very little head. The aroma has notes of coffee, chocolate, and dark roasted malt. Tasting notes include coffee, dark chocolate, and rich roasted malts. The body is full, and earthy. Nice porter!!

Definitely one of the best beers brewed by millstreet... Pours an opaque black with a frothy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, light chocolate and nuts. Taste is roasted malts, coffee that blends together nicely and has a smooth bitterness into the finish. Excellent porter!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep cola brown with no head or lacing. Nose is muted, coffee and roasted grain. Taste follows suit, mild bitter coffee and nutty malt. Body tends to the thin side, with low carbonation and a medium dry bitter finish.
Not bad, but nothing thrilling - a moderate porter with a mild coffee edge. I was a little disappointed the airport brew pub didn’t have this on tap, but I have to assume they at least have decently new bottles of their own beer... Don’t I?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
