This Porter pored a deep black colour with a big, beautiful, creamy, tan coloured head. Scents include vanilla, coffee, roasted malts and cocoa. First sip was velvety smooth with nice vanilla and cocoa flavours along with a little coffee and cream. Finish is lightly roasted with vanilla flavor lingering.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from LCBO. Masssssive gusher. Anyway, after some cleaning, the beer pours dark, near black with a reddish hue. The light tan head retains very well. The nose is awful sweet. Could be vanilla but not really distinct, I get more milk chocolate with a bit of nougat and toffee maybe. Yet... one-dimentional. The flavour’s as sweet chocolate most dominant, and a disturbing estery / herbal / chemical finish. Soft, velvety / watery light body with extremely thin, almost non-existing carbonation. Not a fan of the style nor extreme sweetness paired with watery palate.

Pours a ruby brown with a long-lasting white foam head and lots of lacing. Aroma is vanilla, toffee, and caramel, with a silky cream undertone. Flavor is sweet vanilla, caramel, toffee, some earthy hops. Has a creamy, silky smooth mouthfeel. This is a fantastic little gem.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap (nitro): The aroma consists of moderate vanilla ice cream with light caramel and a hint of nuts. It’s a dark brown with some orange transparency when held to the light. It has a two finger creamy khaki head that settles to a thick film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate. The finish has moderate vanilla cream, light caramel, and a hint of roasted nuts. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sour caramel, toasty malts and vanilla. The flavor was sour caramel, vanilla, toasty malts, malted milk and marzipan. Long finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Solid.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from the brewpub in Ottawa. Pours darkish copper brown with stable light beige head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with some estery notes. Sweet flavour of fudge, with malty and estery touches. Very subtle hints of hops. Mild, sweetish and estery aftertaste. Very low carbonation. Well, something for a teddy bear, perhaps. I would rather have something else.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells like vanilla, sweet vanilla. Pour dark red, tan head. Tastes sweet, lightly toasted malt, some vanilla, but less than expected given the nose. Body is light and fresh, moderately carbonated.
A decent brew, but too thin for my liking.
