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.

This is probably the closest you can get to coffee with alcohol. I love it, but have it rarely, as coffee gives me migraines. It is dark and rich, with the colour, aroma and taste of a cup of coffee. As a university student, it is the perfect drink - alcohol and caffeine together!

Dark brown color, roasty tan head, bearing the mark of the ring ’round a shot of espresso. Aroma is rich and roasty, bitter and grainy, just what you’d want in a "coffee porter." Taste is rather light and sweet, at first, ultimately smooth and medium-bodied. Very tasty, with a grainy, bitter finish. This pulls off a delicate balance, for it encompasses both smooth drinkability with still an appropriate amount of bold coffee flavor. Not too much, not too little, just a taste, and ever-so-mellow that you can throw them back without trouble. I liked it!

Very dark, maybe a bit of red light coming through. Aroma is very much milk chocolate with maple and alcohol thrown in. The coffee binds the flavors more than it asserts itself. Bitter with a nice dark roastiness. Sweetish cherry finish.

Almost black with a thick dark brown head. Fairly sweet coffee aroma with a bit of chocolate. Lots of coffee character, also shows a strong herbal quality, dark sugar and raisin. Long, but dry, bitter coffee finish.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2006 Opaque dark brown. Dark chocolate roast aroma. Good coffee flavors. Flavor and texture remind me of chocolate ice cream. Not too heavy.

I was dying to try this one because I like my beer and coffee to coincide as a peaceful unit (whether it be porter or stout). And this one is ALL COFFEE! Loved it!

Sampled from 341ml brown stubby. Poured opaque black, ruby highlights. Fluffy, dense pillowy head that slowly settled to a 1 cm tan cap. Great aroma of freshly brewed dark roast coffee and roasted barley. Full flavour of coffee and dark malt ending with a raw coffee bean-like finish. Thanks to Deb and Wayne for bring me some bottles from Toronto.

Wow! a coffee porter that leads you around by the nose and tongue! Came in the retro "stubbie" poured an opaque black with red highlights and a nice 2 finger tan cap that lasts and then goes to a surface covering lace. The aroma is predominated by fresh roast espresso beans and some sweetness from the malts. Starts large with a big wallop of espresso backed with stout malt sweetness in a chunky mouthfeel... then goes silky on the tongue as the long finish kicks in...the finish sees the malt drift away where the hops mingle with the coffee and provide a delicious drying finish that is not overly bitter....I really like this beer...a great balanced combo of coffee and sweet porter...I recommend it and will buy more. The detractors that fault it for it's coffee presense and non bittering from hops have to remember this is Porter....not Stout which is generally a more bitter drink to start with....this coffee porter is well balanced by porter standards.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2005 That’s what the bloody hell I’m taking about. A coffee porter that smells like real espresso! Could be better balanced, but maybe I’m attracted to the novelty. Looks great and has nice roasted scents to it. Note: Cask version. The bottled version is slightly inferior, as expected.

This one was a bit of a surprise. Dark beer. Very light head. Bitter coffee aroma. Delicious coffee flavour with a touch of chocolate.
