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 District’s Balzac’s Coffee, this porter offers a rich, full and unique flavour. Currently, there are no other coffee-flavoured beers in the Ontario market.

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.

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.

sudomorph (707) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours black with a half finger, creamy, off white head. Bubbles can be seen rising to the top. Leaves good lacing. Smells slightly bitter with hints of coffee. Taste is of roasted coffee. Slightly bitter but not much. Not too much else. Light body. Slightly watery for my liking but not bad. Low to medium carbonation. A good coffee brew but not much else.

Out of the many coffee stouts and porters that I have tried this beer is with my top three. It's got a great malty coffee flavor with a very subtle hint of vanilla. The thick body of the beer helps it linger on the pallet with a very nice finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A great blend of high quality Balzac’s coffee beans in a rich dark beer. No need for an after dinner coffee when your meal is accompanied by this fine brew. I enjoyed this drink along with a flight of interesting brews in the newly-opened Mill Street Beer Hall. A Beer Lovers’ Paradise!!!!

Light chocolate and coffee flavour are welcomed upon first sips. I like the tankhouse ale a bit more. There isn’t much else other then the flavours mentioned, though they go well together.

Bottle. Pours black, thin body, with medium khaki head. Aroma is heavy of coffee grounds heavy with some lactose sugar. Flavor is dark roast ground coffee and lactose sugar with hints of cola. Lingering roastiness, slightly creamy and frothy body. Everything blends together really well. Balanced. Quite good! Wait... "Currently, there are no other coffee-flavoured beers in the Ontario market." What the hell?!?

For a porter, this is somewhat thin. Coffee is apparent, but also a small amount of chocolate. Brandon and Monica picked this up for me in Toronto in 2013.
