A hearty ebony colored ale that starts with a rich malty palate finished with clean hops and notes of coffee and chocolate.

This is a nice full porter without edging into sugary sweet malt, keeps a good balance and has a perfect hop counterpoint. Brown pour with (as I said) rich detailed and hoppy-bready aroma. Taste is full and complex with a good palate. I’m getting the toffee and hints of demerera-molasses flavors, some dark fruit, mild coffee and chocolate but not too roasty, not really a sour componenent but the dryness is enough, herbal hops tucked in there, really tasty. Worth stocking up on a few.

Roasted malt nose, dark opaque black with brown head. Strong malt up front with lingering coffe and some hops to finish. Delightful stuff.

Listigovers (409) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Thick and rich roasted malt aroma, black with a thick dense brown head. Medium to full bodied, very creamy, big flavour, lots of roasted malt, a prickle of hop, long aftertaste. Nice.

So geht Porter. Kakao en masse, Bitterschokolade, dunkle früchte. Kaffeebitterkeit im Geschmack, Schokolade, Cremigkeit, recht stark karbonisiert.

Roasted malts evident in aroma, with hops, rich and smooth flavor. The bitterness is spot on for an American Robust Porter.

6er from the lcbo. Outstanding roasty aroma, slight amounts of coffee, just alot of dark, slightly sweet roast. The flavour was a really great amount if piney hops, with alot more roast, with toiches of soy, and coffee. Outstanding porter.

Bottle. Pours deep mahogany, small brown head, dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasty, a touch of anise, dark sugars. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, roasty and dark chocolate notes. Light acidity. Medium body. Quite solid for a basic porter.

The beer pours a translucent dark brown (when held to bright light) with a creamy tan coloured cap. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. The aroma is medium bodied with above average carbonation. The flavour is dark malt, coffee, and weak chocolate.

Pours a nice pitch black color with a nice head. Aroma you pick up the malt aroma, with a slight hint of chocolate. Not too heavy on the palate, malts with subtle hop, pick up a little more of the chocolate. Very solid, true to form porter.
