2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured an opaque black colour with a wide mahogany edge tint and a few millimetres of tan foam for a head that retained poorly and laced poorly. Carbonation moderate to high and fine. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, chicory and sweet treacle. Taste of roasted malt, dark chocolate, mild mocha and with a metallic tang. Medium body but a bit thin for a porter. Smooth with a lingering coffee bitterness. The metallic tang is off-putting.

Nice roasty aromas, freshly brewed coffee, dark chocolate notes. Dark brown-black, mostly lasting beige head. Dry, the roasty, chocolaty flavors are balanced very well by hop bitterness. Medium-full bodied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is coffee beana, mocha and assorted chocolates. Some vanilla and espresso here aswell. Taste is rich sweet and roasty malts that manage to stay balnced well and not dominating. Transitions to a lightly tarty bitterness with some earthiness and clove notes. Appearance is a dark amber with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Of all the porters that I have tried this is surprisingly one of the more bitter porters. There is a simply metallic aftertaste that lingers in your mouth after each sip. Maybe it was the bottle that I had or maybe the brew that I tasted was simply not their best. But given what I tried I didn't like this beer. It was just too bland for my liking.

Clear, shinny very dark copper color with ruby hues. Aroma is coffee with some burnt caramel. Flavor is very rich espresso with roasted malts but not overly bitter, gentle herbal hop character. Medium to light palate, full of flavor yet very drinkable. Really nice porter

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Don Mills Bier Markt. Pours a dark brown colour with modest-sized light tan head. Roasty aroma with chocolate, fruit and some earthy hops. Flavour is also fairly roasty with chocolate, light coffee and a solid sort of earthy hoppiness. Almost comes across more as black ipa, but pleasant nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown body with subtle red hilights.
Aromas of dark chocolate, mocha, coffee, with hints of nuts and red fruits.
Tastes are all of the above, wrapped up in a creamy mouth feel.
Yet another Rogue beer that I am enjoying.
