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.

CapFlu (4719) - 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 (2221) - 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 (1490) - 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 (3482) - 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.

presario (4817) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
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.

exeter (440) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours black as night with a micro head that stayed cloudy to the bottom, great lacing. The taste is roasted coffee, sweet chocolate and some citrus bitterness. A little thin and not as smooth and creamy as I’d like. I think this is a bit Baltic.

patricks110 (1935) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
Pours an almost completely opaque black with a thick beige head. Tons of lacing blotches. The aroma is rich and roasty with light caramel and vanilla notes. A bit sweet with chocolate notes and light toasted notes. The finish has mild mannered hops with a bit of citrus bitterness and floral notes. A nice robust porter

reebtogi (4583) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
650ml bomber pours a deep black color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is chocolate and roasted grains with some dark fruits. Taste is a roasted grain and hop bitterness balanced nicely with a chocolate and dark fruit sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation that satisfies the palate. A very satisfactory porter which is sure to please most beer lovers taste buds.
