Bonne bière Ontarienne, agréablement surpris, trés mousseuse. Arôme delicate de café et chocolat noir mi-amer avec une bonne finale de Vanille.

Boutip (4654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Can: Poured a nice light black color porter with a huge creamy light brown head with great retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of vanilla is quite dominating with some good notes of bitter roasted malt notes. Taste is also dominated by loads of vanilla extract which ends up being a bit too over the top with light dry roasted malt notes. Body is light but has a nice creamy texture courtesy of the can widget. Well brewed but vanilla extract notes becomes over the top at some point.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
Draught at the Black Frog, Vancouver
Black color with creamy head; served with a mix of nitrogen. The vanilla come through as artificial, covering other beer characteristics (the ones eventually not killed yet by the nitro); the beer seems dry and a bit roasty; soft; not easy to detect some chocolate, but it’s there.
Smooth. Is this a porter?

jksipa (292) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
440ml can from the LCBO. Pours a a hazy dark reddish brown with a generous tan head. Nose is vanilla and chocolate and yeast. Sweet roasted malt throughout and not as much vanilla as in the nose. Creamy palate but a little thin with soft carbonation and a quite short finish. Pleasant but not exciting.

Strangebrewer (836) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
can. Poured deep brown with red hue, an amazing cascading creamy tan head. Aroma is light with roasted malt and vanilla. Medium bodied with a silky smooth mouthfeel. Sweet malty beer with flavours of bitter chocolate, coffee, vanilla.

HeistAlmighty (1111) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
440ml can. Great looking nitro pour. Mild vanilla aroma. Taste is kind of like a flat cream soda, but a good quality one, the sweetness is balanced. No bitterness to speak of. Nitro body is what you’d expect, creamy, nitro carbonation. Overall, not the biggest fan of nitro cans, but this one wasn’t all heavy and thin and watery so that was a big plus. Could have been more flavourful, but overall this worked.

PictouRx (142) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
This is actually a pretty good beer surprised from a Winter selection sample pack. Pours from 440ml can very frothy big foamy head, lots of lacing carbonation. Aroma coffee, chocolate, roasty, defintely vanilla, smooth on the palate, with a hoppy somewhat bitter finish, lingering coffee taste. Vanilla extract on can says is added to it, this is ok adds character, other additive flavors I have tried not so hot but this not bad.

vadie (636) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
Noir sombre avec une mousse dense, moyenne et marron. L’arôme est dominé par la vanille. Le goût est pareille, peut-être un peu du chocolat, mais juste peut-être! Un très bonne bière du ’pub.’

ToastedElf (1) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013 does not count
440ml can from Mill St. winter sampler pack, Pours a dark brown with amber tinge, thick offwhite head that lasts the whole drink. Strong vanilla aroma with hints of toasted maltiness. Smooth and sweet with a hint of vanilla on the tongue throughout, strong vanilla kick in the finish. A little thinner than expected. Overall another enjoyable beer from a local brewery.
