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.

I must admit, I like my Coffee Porters to be a bit more subtle in the coffee presence. Much like Alley Kat Brewing’s version of the style, Mill Street’s Coffee Porter comes on big and strong in the roasted coffee. However, the base Porter style is clearly well developed in this beer. As a rater, I can see the many good qualities of this beer, even though it’s not one of my favorites.

CurbDog (72) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
Half a finger of tan head, fades quickly and clings to edge of glass. Dark brown colour. Aroma is strong of cold steeped sweetened coffee, roasty. Very strong coffee flavour, thin and slightly acrid. Strong roast, dark bitter chocolate in the finish. Med carbonation. Nice coffee beer, but the porter character is very subdued,

Bamsen78 (4605) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle from the brewpub in Ottawa. Pours hazy very dark brown with creamy, stable light tan head. Clear aroma of roast and malt, with estery notes and touches of coffee. Roasty flavour with notes of coffee and malt and touches of oats and hops. Subtle hints of metal. Estery and slightly coffelike and lactic aftertaste. Decent.

Black with a large beige head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, dates. Medium-light bodied, creamy mouthfeel, slightly sweet on the palate with only a hint of coffee roast/bitterness. Taste is chocolate with a hint of coffee with vanilla creamer.

deyholla (8864) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2015
On tap at Smith. Pours near black with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of sweet dark grains and coffee with a hint of roasted malts. Flavor starts with coffee and roasted malts but finish is mainly sweet dark grains.

lesifflebiere (1521) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2015
Obscure et mince, cette bière possède une petite mousse claire, et un nez chocolaté, velouté et cafféiné. La bouche est également mince, passablement même, avec une finale amère qui tient du café. Les malts n’arrondissent pas le liquide, mais viennent quand même l’enrichir dans sa complexité. Presque désaltérante, bien équilibrée au final, elle ne détonne pas mais sa réussite est indéniable.

Pours black with ruby tinges. Medium beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma of light coffee and malt. Taste is dark roasted coffee and roasted malts. Not overly sweet or bitter. Light body. Good coffee beer.

ENG: 341ml bottle from Liquor Mart Winnipeg. Poured into the tulip. Almost pitch black in color, with little red highlights, medium dark-beige head. Aromas of roasted coffee, maybe bit of chocolate. Taste of very dark coffee, very dark chocolate, quite dry - bitter, a bit alcoholic, a bit roasted caramels, malts, with soury-bittery aftertaste. Low to medium carbonation and medium body. Overall tastes more like an Imperial Stout to me, not a Porter, but it’s too weak for Imperial Stout too. Not bad beer but there was nothing special in it to be honest.

PL: Butelka 341ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg. Przelane do kieliszka. Niemal czarna barwa z lekkimi czerwonymi przebłyskami, średnia ciemno-beżowa piana. Aromaty palonej kawy, może nieco czekolady. W smaku bardzo gorzka czekolada, całkiem wytrawne, gorzkie, nieco alkoholu, nieco palonych karmeli, słody, posmak kwaśnawo-gorzki. Niskie do średniego nasycenie, średnie ciało. Podsumowując jak na mój gust smakuje bardziej jak Imperial Stout a nie Porter, ale z kolei jest za słabe na Imperial Stouta. Może nie jest to złe piwo ale nie ma w nim niczego zachwycającego.

vadie (1107) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2015
Noir avec un petit col marron. L’arôme du café et chocolat. Le goût est pareille avec un peu d’amertume dans la finale. Pas trop complexe mais bonne.

exeter (480) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Pours almost black with a little head. Not much lacing. The taste is of bitter coffee with sour notes that really through me. A little thinner than I had expected. Not as much Porter as I would have liked. Good beer though.
