4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Opaque, black beer with frothy tan head, nice lacing. Roasty, toasty chocolatey aroma with nice whiffs of caramel, subdued hops. Medium, creamy mouthfeel. Very nicely balanced porter verging on stout territory. I will drink more of this as soon as the Store re-stocks what I have bought.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This porter poured a deep black colour with a big, bold, tan coloured head. Light lacing with scents of caramal, coffee, cloves and a faint hint of vanilla. First sip was smooth and flavourful but not as thick a mouthfeel as expected. Flavours of coffee, molassass and burnt brown sugar most prodominant. Finish is extra malty with coffee flavour lingering with a light hop taste. Very nice!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Elle est noire et surmontée d’une mousse énorme qui s’estompe très lentement en signant le verre d’une belle dentelle. Au nez, c’est sulfureux, même que ça sent le pet, mais, il y a aussi une odeur de mélasse acidulée. Après l’avoir oubliée un temps, ce sont des senteurs de conifères ou encore de petits fruits mûrs qui se signalent. En bouche, c’est plus en grains grillés que ça s’apparente et des de pointes de mélasse s’immiscent dans le décor. Pas impressionné. (Batch1835-Embouteillée 03-05-12) (317-150812)
