341 bottle. Dark amber color with a little tan head. Bread and roasted malts, dark berries. Soke and chocolate also present but in a lesser extent. Medium bodied but still creamy enough. Long lasting bitter finish. Good.

dandeman (915) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Évaluation no. 86 Avril 2011. Un nez malté avec caramel léger. De couleur brune. Mousse peu abondante et peu persistante. En attaque on sent bien le sucre caramélisé. Les alcools viennent soutenir les malts aux accents de caramel. Un bon équilibre. Puissant porter. Bien réussi.

Spab (3628) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2011
341 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a dark rubyish brown with a modest-sized tan head. Aroma is fairly roasty with toffee and chocolate. Flavour is somewhat sweet somewhat roasty with toffee, chocolate, a little raisin and a touch of spice. Lighter body than I would have anticipated though by no means light in absolute terms. Good.

Bouteille 341ml. De couleur brune très foncée et quasi-opaque. Nez de malt rôti doux, moyen de chocolat noir, léger de fruits (petits fruits confits, traces de raisins), de caramel toffee, de café avec des notes de houblon herbeux et de crème brûlée (faibles notes lactiques). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture riche et moyennement crémeuse avec de petites notes huileuses. Léger goût de crème (petites notes lactiques) accompagné notes fruitées (petits fruits) et de petites notes de fumée de bois lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt moyennement rôti avec un moyen goût de chocolat noir, un léger goût de toffee et des notes de pain grillé puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux avec un léger goût de café ainsi que de faibles traces de mélasse­ et de noix. Post-goût long-moyen et aux petites notes sèches, léger-moyen amer de rôti, de chocolat noir, de houblon herbeux avec des notes de café ainsi que des traces d’alcool et de fruits (moût de petits fruits).

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 9, 2011
341ml bottle. Colour is very dark brown, looks almost black. Light does not penetrate it very far. Poured with a very thin tan head that disappeared almost immediately. A fair bit of carbonation bubbles. Once the head is gone these traits combine to make this look a lot like a glass of Coca-Cola. Aroma is not strong, mostly caramel/toffee with some dark chocolate. Taste is more toffee and chocolate with an odd sweetness. Hardly any bitterness, but a little smoke on the finish. Body was medium, which I’m led to believe is a little thin for a strong porter.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2011 341mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Pours a nice cloudy dark brown, small tan head. The aroma is awesome, loads of sweet creamy chocolate, a hint of anise. Flavour hits right away with the sweet chocomalt, but with some cinnamon and spice. Rounds out slightly bitter but with accompanying sweet malt notes. Booze is somewhat present but over-all it’s pretty drinkable. Very nice beer, glad I could finally find an example of this most recently constructed style.

DuffMan (9998) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle. Medium brown with ruby highlights and a persistent creamy head. Nice chocolatey aroma, notes of vanilla and coconut, caramel. Sweet malty chocolate, caramel, woody bitterness in the finish. Nice full-bodied creamy mouthfeel. Not terribly complex, but still enjoyable.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2011
341ml bottle. Nearly opaque dark brown pour with some reddish highlights, tan head that has decent retention. Fairly generic grain dominates the nose with some roasted coffee and chocolate notes underneath, but they’re muted. Lighter on the palate than you’d hope for an imperial porter (or regular ol’ porter for that matter). All the classic porter notes are in there but none are really pronounced and there’s a nice bitterness in the finish. Mediocre for sure, but for the price who could complain really?

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2011
Tan head, black in colour. aromas caramel/toffee, sweet chocolate, roast and a hint of fruit cake. taste is fuller bodied, rich and creamy, nice toasty flavour. A very good porter.
