4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours clear, very dark reddish brown, almost black. Forms a very nice, light brown head that sits for quite some time and leaves a nice lacing on the sides of the snifter. Aromas on the nose are dominated by spices, pepper and a dry, dusty smokiness and woody aromas too. The alcohol content is amazingly not that noticeable on the aromas. Aromas on the tongue are quite similar to those already mentioned, but with a nice dark tinge to it. The taste is semi-sweet, with a nice somewhat dry finish, and a lingering aftertaste. The mouthfeel is surprisingly thin for a hefty and complex porter like this, but in a good way. This beer is excellent; one of the best I’ve had.

Bottle - 500ml at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal, QC). Opaque black body with a thin beige foamy head. Robust malty/hoppy aroma with woody, licorice, chocolate, and spicy hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries oaky, yeasty, vanilla, and fruity notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Fantastic!

Bottle. Pours Black with a small Brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt and cafe creme. Roasty sweet flavour with a bitter hoppy finish. Very nice. Rye always seems to gice a slightly unusual element to dark beers. Like fennel seeds in a loaf of bread.

Bottle. Close to pitch black beer with a strong light brown head. The aroma is roasted with some maltiness, and the flavour is gently bitter and roasted with a creamy maltiness. Overall a nice strongly flavoured dark beer with roasted and creaminess.
