341 ml bottle. Pours black with a thin, yet resilient, beige head. Aroma is coffee, roasted cereal, red and blue grapes. Flavor is coffee, roasted grains, hints of smoke and is very dry. Finish is blueberry, grapes, dark coffee...not as bitter as I would’ve expected. Lingering roasted grains. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very decent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. I’d definitely buy again

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 don’t expect much in this category. Decent and I’d get again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
