Pours dark brown. No head. Served too cold at Windsor Phoenix. Something metallic in odor. Also wheat and cocoa. Excellent taste. Rich but not overpowering. Chocolate, malt strongest flavors. Smooth, drinkable. Better than I expected.

Pours a nice dark brown with tanish colored head.Chocolate, cocoa, sweet molasses, and roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a hint of truffle chocolate and a little sweetness. Not bad.

Can. Pours mahogany with a medium tan head that dissipates pretty quickly and leaves good lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate with some roasted malts and molasses. Flavor is medium sweet, light plus bitter, very chocolatey, some dark sugars. Lingering bitterness. Fairly light body, but a creamy mouthfeel.

Growler thanks to Ilya! Pours a clear dark brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and light chocolate with a hint of must underlying. Flavor has more chocolate with a slight bitterness and dark grains with a slight creaminess.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not sure if this is the correct entry, although the can I drank is the same as the one pictured....and some reviews do seem to be of a Barley Wine, this was most certainly not. Pours a dark chocolate color, thin tan head, moderate lacing. Aroma of powdered cocoa, faint nuttiness, faint vanilla and faint bread. Taste was pretty thin for a what the beer described itself as. No flavor really stands out, leaving the chocolate to taste flat. Finish just seem to fade out...pretty thin there too.

this is a very good porter, although it does lose something out of the can versus on tap. its pours black and has a chocolate hoppy taste.
