mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
330mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out notes of cocoa, a little roast, and almost some wintery spices. Flavour is similar, bringing out dark fruits, cocoa, and some slightly spicy notes a la Xmas spices. Not a typical porter by any means, with the wintery spices in there. Pretty well-balanced and unique. Good stuff.

rejtable (2258) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
Pours espresso black with a thin head and no lacing. Nose is roasted espresso and molasses. Notes of espresso, molasses, bitter chocolate, maybe some vanilla. Taste is med/heavy sweet and med/heavy bitter. Somewhat oily body with medium carbonation. Alcohol burn is there, but pretty well integrated. Nice!

Spab (3287) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a very dark brown with modest-sized mocha-coloured head. Aroma is rich and roasty/smoky, with dark fruit, wood, coffee and treacle. Flavour is also very roasty, verging on smoky, but also slightly sweet with lots of coffee, raisins and other dark, dried fruit, as well as a real woodiness and some molasses and graininess. Body on the full side of medium. Slick mouthfeel. Impressive.

probstblueribbon (3675) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
330 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Deep brown-black with a decent mocha head. Deep, rich and sweet, plenty of toffee and molasses, vanilla, chocolate, wood notes, a little booze, a bit fruity...stewed raisins and figs, very nice. Medium+ body with relaxed effervescence. Strong, rich dark chocolate, molasses, dark dried fruits, darker and blacker than the nose, still fairly sweet and friendly though, vanilla, sine oak notes; sweet with sufficient bitterness and a long, mouth-coating finish off rich chocolate and molasses. Quite good.
