UPDATED: FEB 26, 2018 Bottle. A nice roasty malty porter, slight berry hints. It's a solid tasty porter.

650ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown almost black with reddish hue and a medium, creamy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel and coffee. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel, licorice and ash with a dry, bitter coffee finish. Medium body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty.

650 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a very dark brown colour with modest-sized light tan head. Aroma is roast, molasses, semisweet chocolate and light coffee. Flavour has modest roast with fairly sweet molasses and chocolate character as well as a light coffeeishness. Body is a little lighter than I’d have anticipated. Nice.

Rich chocolate aroma. Pours dark dark brown w frothy head. Flavours of chocolate malt and coffee. Syrupy mouthfeel (in all the best ways!) like this one a lot. Great winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from LCBO. Pours a fairly decent size frothy brownish head and has a dark brown appearance. Thick sticky lacing. Aromas of dark roasted malts, caramel, notes of chocolate and coffee. Flavours are mostly sweet malt, roasted malt, some chocolate and coffee notes as well as bit of earthy hop hints. Very smooth and slick mouthfeel.Good stuff!

Bomber. Pours black small head. Nose coffee and roasted malts. Taste coffee and roasted malts. Finish coffee and roasted malt. Palate a bit thin. Good but not very complex.

Thanks Frank. This was poured into an English pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with no head or lace. The aroma had some rugged dark to bitter chocolate malts with a nice roasty balance. The flavor lends a hand to the roasty side and then the bitterness of the chocolate nibs end up blending nicely. Robust smooth bitter chocolatey aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. ABV felt nicely. Overall, really easy going Porter well worthy of having again.
