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.

JCW (1277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Dark brown color, pours with small tan head. Aroma is malty sweet with toffee, coffee and small roast flavors. Little bitterness to speak of. Moderate body correct for the style. Balanced finish, excellent porter.

Boutip (5351) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2004
Bottle - Poured a translucent dark brew with absolutely no head and no carbonation. Aroma of toffee. Taste is a bit sweet, with some toffee and some bitterness. I’m not sure if this is a bad bottle, but the lack of carbonation is very annoying and leaves a bad taste in my mouth. This beer also lacks a strong body and the chocolate/coffee taste should be more detectable. Overall, a very disappointing beer that I will try at least one more time to ensure that I didn’t get a bad bottle.

Crockett (1039) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2004
Black/ruby tiney sudsy head. Smokey malt aroma. Hopped with some molases bitter. Alcohol comes through but not in the forefront. Earth, berry tartness, coffee and chocolate notes. Some anise. Finishes dry. Very good porter.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2004
Bright auburn color, tan bubbly head. Milk chocolate nose with a touch of roasted coffee and light organic notes. The nose is quite pleasing with hints of chocolate. The body is coffeeish at the front with a slightly sweet milk chocolate middle. The end turns into some light organic bitternss that lingers. Bittersweet finish. Nice porter, light yet tastey.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Thin mouthfeel to it and a sweeter aftertaste but not much more to it. Aroma isnt particularly amazing, and the appearance, well, looks like almost every other porter.

possumjc (149) - Charleston - Mt Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Chocolate and caramel aromas with a touch of fruit scents. Nice dark red opaque color with a thin tan head. Chocolate flavor with a hint of hops flavor. Very nice beer in a very attractive bottle.

radiomgb (2560) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2004

Tessic (983) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2004
This porter pours a black cherry colour with a rocky light tan head. The aroma consists of Chocolate, grapes,roasted malts and a slight pine hoppy scent. Flavours include coffee, chocolate and burnt malts with a little ash thrown in. The flavours start off slow but the burnt malts come through huge! The palate is bitter with more lingering coffee and chocolate flavours.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2004
Slightly translucent dark brown w/ creamy beige head. Sweet, roasty aroma of caramel, plums, & milk chocolate w/ licorice notes. Thinner than most porters, closer to a brown ale in feel, but appropriate for style. Roasty flavour of caramel, milk chocolate, coffee & plums w/ hints of licorice & light smoke.
