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 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle into an English pint. Pours a deep black with minimal, quickly-dissipating head. Nose is a bit roasty, a bit funky. Mild flavour of butterscotch and a bit nutty? Kind of a slightly sour/bitter combo. Only ok (par for the course with Picaroon’s I’ve found).

Poured from bottle. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, coffee. Very mild bitter taste. Medium body, creamy texture. A typical porter, well done.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft in Moncton. Deep amber maroon color, tan head. Aroma of cola, cocoa. Taste is slightly sour butterscotch. Hmmm.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gotta love that sweet pooch on the front. Porters really would be a mans best friend if they could. Very dark brown with a tan head and smelling of mocha, cream and caramel. It’s bittersweet with coffee, smoke and fruit being prominent. I really enjoyed this mid-mouthfeel Porter.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pas mauvaise mais rien de spécial dans cette bière. La torréfaction et le niveau de sucre sont très bien par contre.

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.
