341ml brown bottle. Deep brown colour. Head is compact, beige colour, thins out to a light film. Big dark chocolate nose, some roast. Flavour is bitter dark chocolate up front, elements of dark earth and black coffee. Aftertaste has an undertone of chocolate sweetness but carries over the coffee and roast quite nicely. Dry end, some light bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation, good drinkability. Very nice porter, especially if you like chocolate covered coffee beans. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle. Dark beer with a lasting thin head. Nice roast malt scent, with some rubber and hints of chocolate. Big body has a dark bitter chocolate milk texture and flavour. Very enjoyable drink. A bit of stickiness on the lips. DuffMan (10983) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 16, 2010
Bottle. Really dark, old penny copper colour with a dense light tan head that settles into a persistent uniform 5mm mattress that leaves spidery fingers of lace deep into the glass. Aroma is initially quite brothy, but as the beer warms, cream and cocoa with roasty undertones become the dominant bouquet. Flavour is cocoa, bitter roast, with some nice fruity acidity lending a bit of tartness to the mid-palate. There are dark fruits in here as well. The finish is surprisingly bitter, beyond just simple hard roast. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium-to-full bodied. A truly fantastic porter, very enjoyable.
