On tap at Brothers Beer Bistro (Ottawa, ON). Opaque black body with a thin beige creamy head. Nice malty aroma with hoppy and chocolate hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries woody and roasted coffee notes. Ends with a decent bitter/roasty finish. Good stuff. Radek Kliber (7320) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 25, 2013

Dark chocolate, a bit of coffee, and molasses. Deep black with a creamy and bubbly dark tan head. Coffee is the primary taste, some dark chocolate, and malts galore. Mouthfeel is light (for a porter) but very smooth and a bit creamy. Mmmmm...this is a good one even though coffee isn't my thing...too bad I have to quaff it quickly as its 6 minutes to last call. ads135 (4587) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 13, 2013
Mild coffee and chocolate in the dark beer. Thick appearance thought with a surprisingly thin body. Creamy, thick off white head. Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
A deep dark porter wwith a thick receding brown head. In aroma, classic chocolate with smooth alcohol, light licorice, some dark fruits, nice. In mouth, sweet fruity chocolate with powdery qualities, light bodied but good.

Deep brown, almost black colour with a thin head. Roasted chocolate malt flavour. Sweet caramel. Gorgeous porter. I say Ashley, a gorgeoua porter. AGAquino (667) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
From notes. Pours a slightly cloudy dark brown colour with a nice long lasting tan head. Aroma and flavours of roasted malts, notes of vanilla, some bitter chocolate and syrup. Nice lingering aftertaste.

Rich toasty aroma with hazelnuts, coffee, and detectable fruitiness.Complex. Clear, but nearly opaque ruddy dark brown under an eternal, tan foam. Complex flavour with roasted barley vanilla and bitter chocolate behind a rich, toasty nuttiness and molasses. Full body, moderate carbonation, sweet finish that does dry up a bit at the end. robinvboyer (4611) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2012
On tap at the burger bar. Right off the bat i found this quite bitter for a porter.
Big roasted, burnt malts, light cocoa, and a big bitter bite. Yes i would agree this is robust a little low on the carb, but the palate didnt suffer. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2012
UPDATED: APR 8, 2012 Smells like earthy hickory smoke that expands a lot on the first exhalation. There’s some coffee on the taste and earthy bitterness. Pours dark with mocha foam, high carbonation. A medium heavy body. Great beer, exceeded expectations. On tap at the Burger Bar.
