COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

Interesting bottle reminiscent of the old porter bottles. Pours a deep dark brown with red highlights and a frothy tan head. The look I love. Aroma of chocolate and bitter chocolate in the flavor. Nice porter.

deep brown, small tan head. roasted coffee and malt aroma with a whiff of smoke and chocolate. the flavour follows with a bit of tartness leading to a balanced roasty bitter finish.

kace069 (6) - marlette, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2004 does not count
quite a different porter unlike any i have had before especially with the light smoky flavor. a rather light bodied porter but a porter none the less. one of the best imports i have had in a while

GregClow (2847) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2004
Dark brown colour with small, quickly disappearing head. Roasty aroma with a strong note of bitter chocolate covered cherries. Light and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Complex and well-balanced flavour of roasted malt and bitter coffee. Elements of the two beers used in the blend become more noticable as it warms. A very unique and extremely drinkable beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2004
Chocolate, cherries and coffee aromas, deep ruby colour with a small cappuccino head, some very nice lace. Roasted coffee flavour, bitter chocolate and a faint smokey peat taste as well. Light bodied, almost creamy, luciously biiter! Well worth the wait, due to the L.C.B.O. red tape.

Thin dark bubbly head but roasted aroma. Taste is a little harsh but generally quite good, with coffee and malt throughout.

jtw (1085) - farmington, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2004
very spicy aroma, almost citrusy. deep brown, not as dark as i expected. flavor is a little weak; some coffee roastiness, not much else. it's too thin, and finishes a little too dry.

Nice bottle, very black, dark tan head. Flavor is predominately roasted coffee and bitter chocolate. Good porter.

You know, I'm a little confused as to the appearance on this one. It's beautifully black with a small head, but the head poured out in chunks that looked disturbing until they settled. Not much of a smell, but what's there is great. I think I smell raisins. Very mild and plain porter... and very thick and syrupy in my mouth... did I get a bad bottle? First the chunky head and now a syrupy mouthfeel...

Very dark, but not opaque, you can see just a little light through it. Creamy long lasting head. Deep malt characteristics in the aroma, chocolate and other notes, with just a little roast creeping in Full in body but not thick. It has a creamy fluff to it. Taste starts out with a little sweet, which quickly turns bitter and then gradually fades to a malty-chocolate. Quite good.
