Winter 2015 bottling. 7.6% abv. Pours black with head approaching espresso crema. Nose is coffee, roasted, dark chocolate goodness. Wonderfully creamY mouthfeel. Taste is well balanced, deep roasted malt, sweet dark chocolate, some cola, creamy taste. Made we want to dunk a cookie into it (I didnt). Let this one warm up. Extremely delicious.

Draft at brewery. I was rather disappointed with this one. Dark pour, khaki head, that dies to a ring. Smell is off, it resembles a black IPA more than a porter, but these styles often blend into one another. It just smelt bad, with a touch of hop. Tasted worse. Didnt like this one. Hope it was just a dirty glass or something.

Au premier abord, la mousse généreuse est d'une belle couleur moka, mais disparait rapidement. Des aromes de chocolat, de petit fruit et de malt rotie s'émanent de la bière. Au goût, cette porter baltique est chocolatée avec une bonne pointe de malt rotie et fruité. Au final, très bonne porter baltique, bien balancé.

500 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks Duffman). Looks good; a fairly opaque very dark (almost black) cola with foamy beige head. Smells and tastes good too; a nice balance of dark malt, loads of chocolate, and mild roast and a hint of plum alongside a well-balanced hop profile. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full-bodied and pleasantly bitter, yet smooth. Good stuff!

Sitting on the couch with my new little lad, after a satisfying family lunch of homemade mac and cheese. A black pour with just a scant ring of head. A nose of rich roasted malts with coco and coffee. Taste of heavily roasted malts, with a underlying sweetness that hints of dates, also persistent espresso and high coco chocolate bitterness.

Une bouteille, merci Pat. Une robe brune fonce avec une belle mousse beige durable. Un nez de chocolat profond avec des notes fruites fort agrables. La bouche est souple, chocolat avec une finale pas trop sucre. Beau produit.

Porter trs brun ou presque noir possd par une mousse qui nest gnreuse que pour quelques secondes. Nez fruit et chocolat qui montre une pointe dalcool avec de la rglisse, une touche de noix et du charbon de bois. Saveurs de cerises travers des malts noirs et chocolats. Bouche de moyenne densit avec une texture huileuse et un ptillement bas. Finale amrement noire sur un grain fumant ou de caf avec une fine chaleur dalcool.

CacheManyHose (697) - HONG KONG - JAN 3, 2015
Draught at Bellwoods Brewery. Inky black with very small dark tan head and spotty legs. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, herbal hop and some very light raisin/soy sauce. Tastes very bitter, dark chocolate, bitter gently fizzy finish. A very bitter if otherwise ordinary porter.

HKdIPA (783) - HONG KONG - JAN 3, 2015
Draught at Bellwoods Brewery in Toronto. Rich dark pour. Tan head. Aroma not too strong - standard porter. Taste is very rich and deep - pleasant bitterness with caramel maltiness. Bigger, but fairly normal, porter. Good. Would get again.
