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.

Light brown, sweet chocolatey nose. Sweet front, touch of chocolate, dash of fudginess. Not the greatest character for me.

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.

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 (4555) - 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 (6714) - 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
