COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the unpredictable dive of the east van crow, this Brown Porter will shock your senses with an explosive bomb of flavour. Hidden behind the slight upfront hop bitterness is a deep roasted malt character with hints of caramel, toffee, chocolate, and nuts. Your taste buds won’t be disappointed.

Bottle from gnashville, ta. Brownish black with a thin head. Very light caramel aroma. Flavor is much stronger, smoked, roasted, malty raisin. Very drinkable.

On tap at The Alibi Room in Gastown. Almost black, with a nice tan head. Heavily and nicely roasted malts are at the forefront, with both chocolate and coffee impressions. Yep!

Sampled at Great Canadian Beer Festival 2013. Sour porter? Smooth and vanilla... Gross sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boston round from the brewery. Served in a tulip. Pours a opaque brown with a light brown head. Aroma: Slight roasty nuts, raisins, hint of banana, toffee. Palate: Medium bodied, fizzy, long, slightly dry finish. Very tingly. Taste: Subtly sweet start, subtly bitter finish. Not too roasty for me.

reebtogi (3831) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
Sampled during VCBW 2013 at the River Rock Casino Resort pouring brown in color with a small light beige head that leaves some spotty lacing behind. Aroma is light roasted grains and caramel. Taste is a chocolate and caramel malty sweetness with a light roasted grain bitterness. Light to medium bodied with light carbonation. A mild easy drinking porter that would pass off as a good dark session ale.

Ferris (2002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Draft - Roasted malts and medium roast coffee. Very mellow bitterness. Jet mahogany with a thin brown head. Sweet and syrupy with chocolate roasted malts. A bit cloying bit nice with desert. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650ml bottle. Mahogany with fast-fading beige head. Up front roast aroma with cocoa and burnt coffee. Weakly sweet, like thin syrup that settles in the back of your mouth. On the positive side: great label art.

Gerbeer (1489) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours brown with red hints and light white head. Aromas of cocoa powder, biscuit, and dry roasted malt. Flavors of cocoa, nuts, and light burnt malt, plus an odd hint of something like olive oil. A light bodied, easy quaffing porter. No explosive flavor bomb though...
