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.

Easily my top pick at the Beer Store - an easy, relaxed porter with great coffee flavour infused into it (incidentally, Balzac’s Coffee is a great place to grab a high quality coffee in the Ontario region - bring a book, check them out and have a great afternoon, though no word if a coffee porter is permitted on the premises). Oh yeah, I was reviewing the beer.... dark amber/black colour with a gentle touch of acidity. Very enjoyable.

Flavour is a nice balance between coffee and dark malts. Not too heavy or sweet.

Aroma of bitterness and coffee bean. Has also the bitter coffee taste which is nice. Pours dark with a lingering tan head. Smooth and creamy. Nice porter, not complex, but gets the job done.

A dark mahogany red with a brown head. The beer has depth and complexity with the coffee but is a good example of what a 'hot' beer is. The flavors have not had time to blend and mature together. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit on the bitter side.Caramel, coffee, roasty smell and flavour. If you enjoy black coffee and porters, try this one.

341 mL bottle. Pours dark brown with modest head that dissipates quickly. Coffee aroma. Light carbonation. On the tongue are flavours of coffee and burnt toast. Maybe some nuttiness. Long coffee finish. Really nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Noire opaque aux reflets rougeâtres, ayant une mousse timide qui flotte au-dessus du liquide. Des arômes certains de café noir, aussi de de grains grillés et de mélasse, à moins forte dose. Le goût est dans la même palette, avec des pointes plus amères à l’occasion. Belle corpulence. Pas de qualités exceptionnelles, c’est satisfaisant sans pour autant en vouloir à tout prix.

worldbeertaste (1610) - AUSTRIA - OCT 7, 2012
Dark brown almost black with a thick light lacy brown mostly disappearing head. Smells of nice soft roast, coffee, oats and chocolate. All the things that a good porter would have. The palate is a bit watery. Tastes of sweet vanilla and chocolate and roast coffee and barley. The finish is roast of coffee and has a nice soft burnt element. Very balanced. Easy to drink and not much to disappoint. A bit thin.

On tap. Almost black. Lasting creamy brown head. Looks nice. Aroma is mostly the roasted coffee, some molasses, dark chocolate, leather, hint of tropical? Medium oily mouthfeel. It’s not as complex as the aroma. Mostly a coffee bitterness, but not extreme. Clean finish. I found this pleasant and dare i say almost sessionable for a porter, which is probably as much a criticism as a compliment. It’s weak. I noticed some comments from years past about lack of hops. Maybe they’ve updated the recipe as this one has been around for a while.
