Well I just wrote my review for Nickel Brook’s Green Apple Pilsner so it’s nice to arrive at my favourite beer by this brewery. Here’s what I think: This is not a complex beer whatsoever. It’s porter and maple syrup and that’s all you taste, really. But the flavours magically infuse and make a slight stickiness that just works. It’s probably the best uncomplex beer I’ve ever had. Beautiful appearance, too. It would be nice to see this style become popular in Canada.

16 oz can from Cappy’s at home. Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, mild maple syrup, caramel, some ash to the finish, a bit too thin and just very average in my opinion, the Imperial Ipa was solid.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark pour, frothy white head. Lighter Maple notes, dark malts in aroma. Lighter Maple sweetness gives way to ash in the taste. Thinner body than it should have.

Can 6.0%. Pours a dark coke colour with a red edge and a tan head. Malty, sweet caramel, light rum aroma. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Very coca-cola’ish, with dark toffee and light dark fruit. Pretty thin and insipid poor.

Au son, un pétillement sans égale, avec une détonation à l’odeur de sirop d’érable et de grain rotie. En bouche, très pétillante, avec un goût de grain de café rotie, et chocolat noir, avec un mini soupçon d’érable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally rated March 2013. 750ml bottle with a wax-sealed cap. Pours a dark brown colour with a frothy mocha cap that has great retention and foamy thin lace. Coffee aroma start, with eventually caramel and roasted malts, dark fruit notes and mild yeast. The maple really appears in the taste, not to add too much sweetness, but well-balanced with the hop bitterness in the finish. Mild sugars, roasted malt and a tad of dark fruits. A very nice, easy-drinking porter, with hints of maple syrup.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from the LCBO.
Appearance: Pours black with almost a finger of tan head. Short retention with little lacing.
Toasted malt, grain, cereal, bit of liqueur.
Dark toasted malt, black coffee, cola, hint of dark chocolate.
Average viscosity with lighter carbonation.
Overall: A nice Porter with tons of malt. I didn’t get any maple, but this was still a really nice Porter.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle. Clear brown body, cola like head, no retention at all. Effervescent. Aroma of roasted malts, cough syrup, a touch of coffee, vanilla. Taste of well-done toast, coffee, mineral water, just a hint of maple. Disappointing.

Nickelbrook has redeemed itself from the terror that was the bolshevik bastard porter. Nice and smooth with a nice pour n great nose. Smooth to drink n doesnt linger too long on the palate. Good for a session porter
