Draught @ Gourmet Food & Wine Show: Man, I must just love porters, as they seem to be joining stouts at the top of my rates. This one is well deserving of a place near the top as I got a chance to try the 2006 (ie. 4th) edition of this seasonal. Pours red and black, very good thick head. Aroma of deep roasted coffee and spices, very inviting. The flavour is exceptional, boasting a lot of malts with a noticeable amount of cinnamon inside that dark roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate. It’s complex and it’s so tasty I couldn’t stay away. It was the talk of the show tonight, can’t wait to try it again. AGAquino (704) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
From notes. 12oz bottle at Black Oak. Pours a very dark brown with a nice small tan head. Aroma is coffee and nuts, nice sweet malts and noticeable alcohol. Mouthfeel is thick and full bodied. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2003
(2003 vintage) Very dark ruby-brown colour with a thin tan head. Complex aroma of coffee, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom & pepper. Body is rich, smooth and slightly creamy. Roasty, toasty, nutty flavour with notes of chocolate and cinnamon. Mmmmmm-mmmmmm-good! barncatmatt (2355) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2008
