1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Even when poured warm it comes out with a minimal soda-pop head. Lighter black body. Aroma of burnt barley and some plastics, fusels. Flavour is light burnt barley with some molasses sweetness. Watery on the mouth. This is not a good showing at all.

Pours dark like coffee with a thin cream color head. Has a roasted sweet aroma, taste of roasted coffee with a malty finish. Not too bad for a porter. I usually stick with the ipa’s by this was ok.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours deep opaque brown, almost black, with small beige head that leaves some lacing.
Nose is roasted malts and nuts. On the palate, this rounds out with milk chocolate, caramel, hints of dark fruit, grains and even a stray banana note. All this comes in a light body, so it’s an exemplary porter, tasty without being filling and modest ABV.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 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!
And July 12, 2014 on tap at Earl’s in Yaletown. Still a very good porter. Picked up licorice notes that I missed at Alibi Room. 3.6.
