Gethinbeer (2189) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Diolch Joe McPhee. Deep chestnut pour with a large frothy tan head and clinging lace. Rich chocolate malt and toffee aroma. Lovely velvet texture with a chocolate malt, nutty flavour. Nice alcohol kick in the finish.

Dark chocolate in colour, tan head which fades quickly. Long dark chocolate aromas. Bitter swallow. Faint burn.

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
330ml bottle from the LCBO. Opaque brown-black with a huge fluffy tan/light brown lasting head. Nice appealing aroma - middling roast, alcohol, prune and fig, somewhat floral. Taste - simple, light on the roast, heavy on the dark fruit, not too tart, a little coffee and booze in the finish - nice. Slick, a little light-bodied, only mildly carbonated, finishes fairly quickly, leaves a nice fruity slightly earthy aftertaste. Nice - I would like a bit more body, but the light carbonation suits me just fine.

Boutip (4818) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a nice dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt with some black chocolate notes is quite pleasant. Taste is also dominated by some roasted malt with light dry coffee notes and some black chocolate notes. Body is quite full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Easily drinkable for the style with just enough complexity to be interesting.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Long dark chocolate malts whip up chocolate chip allusions as well as roasted bread crumbs in a slender and bitter vehicle.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the brown-edged black.
-Even though the finish is balanced out by hop bitterness, you can still stay this brew’s all about the malts.
-This is not as sweet as many NAmerican takes on the style.
-Alcohol was not a bother at all in the flavor profile.

It pours dark ruby coloured almost opaque; the head is off-white and foamy. the aroma has notes of: toffee, biscuit, and toast. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium bitter; there are notes of: coffee, toffee, and chocolate. The palate is medium bodied, has light carbonation, and a long bitter finish. Overall, it’s meh.

Scottishchris (221) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Pours dark brown with tan lacing. Massive chocolate caramel nose, really distinctive. Medium thick body, light bubbles, coffee and bitterness. Millionaires shortbread in a beer! Amazing!

HipHopOpotamus (233) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 malty body with dark fruits and some coffee notes with some bitterness. An interesting Porter, never tasted one like that before.
