COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a well-rounded porter, brewed to be assertively roasty and toasty with an approachably pleasant body; at once, soothing and invigorating.

Hidden_Pooch (276) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. I always enjoy Picaroons labels, and this reminded me of my late pooch. A nice roasted malt aroma. It tasted of coffee and toasted nuts, and maybe a little molasses. A nice medium bodied brew with little head. Not a bad little porter.

Rogers_Dieppe (1) - New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 12, 2014 does not count
Nice dark colour, pretty minimal head, very pleasant taste... medium body, well-balanced overall.

Pas mauvaise mais rien de spécial dans cette bière. La torréfaction et le niveau de sucre sont très bien par contre.

Frothmeister (547) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a dark, dark, dark brown with a red hue and a two finger tan head. Aroma is cocoa, dried fruit, a faint note that makes me think pecan pie, and light notes of molasses, ash, coffee, caramel, and a little bit of alcohol. Taste starts sweet with molasses, and cocoa notes, followed by some light caramel, and a nice espresso like bitterness in the finish. Other than being slightly lighter in body, this is a solid pint, and if I could, I would definitely buy it again.

czar (4159) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
pours light brown-ruby with a nice light beige head, good retention and lacing. fruity and chocolatey, bit of minerals, hint of soy and lactic acid, brettiness (happened a few times with bottled picaroons). average carbonation, almost prickly, light body - almost watery, dry bitter coffee finish. a decent offering.

MarkoR (494) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
500 ml bottle from NB Liquor. Even though I’m not a fan of the style, I can understand why people would like or even love this beer. Pours a black colour with a nice head that quickly fades away. Aroma is not necessarily nice at first, but more complex by the minute. Worth a try.

Atheist_Peace (929) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a deep brown with a tan head that lasts. Weird sour coffee on the nose with something....green. Strange. The same kind of weirdness on the palate. The body is too light. Not as much of a mess taste wise but there’s really nothing going on.

stantheman (629) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
Large bottle from VITI @ The Met in New West. Pours black with a generous tan head. A nice balance of malt, a bit of fruitiness and very noticeable bitterness; the bitterness resulting from the heavy roasting of the malts, not from hops. A very nice porter.

There is a minimum of 75 characters for your comments. A good rating says something about the appearance, aroma, flavors, body, and finish and your overall experience with the beer.

Gerbeer (1691) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours black with medium whitish head. Aroma of chocolate powder and cereal. Metallic slightly sour taste up front with light acidic coffee notes to follow and slight bitter finish. Not spot on and not one to repeat.
