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

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. Iíd definitely buy again

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 donít expect much in this category. Decent and Iíd get again.

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 (1008) - 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 Balzacís 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 Loversí Paradise!!!!

Light chocolate and coffee flavour are welcomed upon first sips. I like the tankhouse ale a bit more. There isnít much else other then the flavours mentioned, though they go well together.
