Fairly pronounced smokiness in the aroma but the taste is really where the smoked malt comes through. Very smooth, black pour with a quickly dissipating tan head.

Poured from a bottle. Deep brown, not quite opaque, with a medium head of tan foam. Medium to thin body. Not much of an aroma. Medium carbonation. Slightly bitter and harsh with just a hint of smoke. Not very smooth, flavorful or refreshing. Not that enjoyable, somewhat disappointing. Could have been a little thick, smoother, with bolder flavors.

650ml bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with a red hue and a large, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruit, licorice, coffee and a hint of smoke. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, dark fruit, coffee, smoke and caramel with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with a smooth, creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced. Very nicely done. An excellent porter.

Delicious traditional smoked porter. Subtly smoked,light with big coffee and chocolate notes in the malt. Subtle, rounded fruity hops. Brings back memories of wintertime evening drinking at blind tiger on W10th for some reason.

Had at Matt's when Theresa was round. Opaque black, beige fluffy head, big fluffy lacing. Smells of dusty (mothball-ish though not in bad way) dry roasted cereal malt. Taste is medium to heavy bitterness, roast/burnt malt, somewhat thin. Body is thin, burnt malt, small carbonation. Not that smoky, dusty nose, taste and palate kind of thin.
