I love porters. This one is right where I like it. Not over the top but still dark and slightly rich. Toasty malt flavor with very light taste of hops.

Rating #1342. Sampled this out to staff and colleagues at Parkland Liquor in Stony Plain 02.12.2014. Pours a bubbly brown with a weak white cap, little retention. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, earth. Palate is mild cocoa, espresso - sweetness curbed by lovely earth bitterness pronounced. Great porter.

mcberko (10556) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2015
On tap at Sound, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted malts that dominate. Flavour is bland, with toasted malt and bready notes. Pretty bland and weak, but no off-notes. Okay.

Draught at Nakanoshima. A solid porter, quite rich and chocolatey with smokey and herbal notes, hints of raisin, nutty dry finish. Good stuff.

Bottle. shared with Parksy and others at the lake, May long weekend. Dark brown, copper highlights, lasting tan head. Bitter chocolate, roast, light fruit acids in the finish. We had a few porters this weekend, not all good, but this one was pretty solid.

CapFlu (4910) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
Large frothy beige head atop a deep brown body. Somewhat muted nose, minor Ash. Brown ale with very dry palate. Interesting but not terribly Stroh to style. Purchased at Metro Liquors for ~$8.

Gerbeer (2567) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with moderate tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of nuts, dark sugar, and toasted malts. Flavors of bitter acidic nuts, grass, and flat cola. May be an old bottle.

Lagerboy (1656) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
Bomber. Amber hued clear dark brown, mostly fading tan foam. Darker roast aroma, some chocolate. Roasty malty taste, bittersweet chocolate, some coffee bean, mild Noble influence. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Very well put together, tasty and easy to pound. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Aubrey (3501) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Draft: Incredibly delicious porter. Very balanced, too. Nice and velvety texture. Lots of chocolate throughout, along with a bit of char and some light roast. Perfect amount of milk-like sweetness -- just a touch to soften the hop bitterness. Fantastic background hints of tobacco, toast and vanilla. One of the best porters I’ve had in a while.

Nice head on dark beer. Good aroma; chocolate, roast malt and a bit of plum. Nice body. Some fruit notes, chocolate, dusty malt. Pretty nice beer.
