Dark brown beer, ruby tint, sticky tan-coloured head. Nice lace. Aroma is quite flowery and herbal with a touch of spice. A waxy flavour in here though that ruins it. Dirty, dusty flavour. Oxidized and cardboardy. I had this the same day as the Denisons Dunkel which had some similar badness going on as well, which makes me think that there may have been something going on with the taps. Will re-rate when I get a chance.

Picked up a few bottles at the brewery. Pours almost black with a huge brown head. Big aromas of coffee and nutty, dark chocolate. Taste is coffee, roasted malt and dark chocolate. Taste really improves as the beer warms. Medium bodied and smooth. Nice malt/bittermess balance. Well done Black Oak!

JadoreBlanche (114) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2005
on tap at Cafe Volo. Dark brown/black, almost opaque, light brown thick creamy head. Sweet nutty aromas, along with malt adn slight coffee and chocolate. Taste of coffee is dominant, with nutty notes and sweetness. Very bitter on the finish. Leaves strong coffee bitterness at back of throat. Nice to sip on.

Bottle from DougShoemaker. Deepest brown color. Red ruby hues can be seen when backlit. Low on carbonation. Decent malt profile. Aroma is nutty and coffee like. I didnt really find the cinnamon in here. Decent hop finish.

mmmm, enjoyed on tap at beer bistro. Dark black colour with foamy off white head. Aroma of spice and roasted chocolate. The flavour is delicous with chocolate and spices, cinnamon predominates, but its complex. Very Good.

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2004
An excellent porter that I had the benefit of trying side by side at Caffe Volo in Toronto, with the nitrogen and hand pumped drafts - of course, the hand draft won hands down. Its best when the warmer, less carbonated draft allows the flavours to emerge from the beer. Its quite dark, with a light, frothy head. It is quite heavily malted with coffee and a bit of chocolate, and virtually no carbonation. An excellent cask draft.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Bottle: Nice coffee and chocolate aroma. Pours a dark brown with a little red shining thru when held to the light. Not much of a head. Flavor is mostly roasted coffee with some chocolate. Relatively light up front with the flavors increasing in the finish. A little sourness in the finish.
