4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark rich porter has a nice bite. First taste I picked up hints of citrus, coffee and hickory smoke. I next picked up the chocolate and almonds or maybe pecans. Has nice carbonation, but with little head.

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

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.

Pours a dark brown with red around the edges. Tan head with little head retention. Aromas of coffee and some hops. Flavors of coffee malt and a little more hops than most porters. Slight metallic aftertaste. But not overpowering. Not to bad for a porter.

z butelki ładny kawowy aromat. Piania drobno pęcherzykowa, piwo nieprzejrzyście czarne . Goryczka niska. Mało się dzieje w tym piwie.
