3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a very dark brown with the vaguest hint of orange/red and a large tan head. Aroma is quite strong coffee but with an underlying chocolate and molasses sweetness. Flavour is strong, somewhat bitter coffee with a little semi-sweet chocolate and a touch of vanilla as it warms. Lingering roasty bitterness in finish. Quite pleasant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black body with brown highlights topped by a beige head that dissipates fairly quickly. Lots of chocolate on the nose. Taste is dark malt, coffee, more chocolate and a light fruity note. The body is full but paradoxically the beer finishes fairly dry. Good palate. A very nice porter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown to black colour with a tan head. Up front aroma of roasted coffee that that has an almost burnt note. Beyond that there is some chocolate and a hint of some thing exotic as well, almost like brine. Rich fuller bodied brew with a espresso taste, a little bit of burnt toast on the initial stage then it finishes a bit sour and fruity. A very tasty brew indeed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very deep dark mahogany to black colour. Frothy head and lace. Malt, chocolate and fruit aroma. Chocolate malt flavour. Roasted goodness, coffee. Tasty brew. No complaints. True to its style. Close to a stout but for the bitter finish. Nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark with a beige head. Aroma is berries, chocolate, light roasted malts. Medium thin body with noticeable carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, lightly roasted malty, sweet berries, light bitterness, a touch of coffee. Quite a nice and interesting porter. I did not expect the sweet berry flavor but it really added an interesting twist to the beer. Mmm.

22oz. bottle. Pours a nice dense black with tan head that sticks around. Coffee, chocolate, stewed fruit on the nose with a brandy edge. Lots of roasted coffee on the palate with an almost smoked edge. Some chocolate and a little bit of hops. Colour me impressed.

Clear dark amber beer. Short lived light tan head. Semi dry palate, slightly soft. Smooth dark malt. Just a hint of roastiness. A little minerals in the semi dry finish. Well balanced if very standard porter.
