Bottle. Viscous nearly black, soft brown head. Aroma is chocolate syrup and bread. Dark chocolate liqueur, roast, coffee bitter finish. Too sweet with way too much chocolate syrup for my taste. RobBestwick (963) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2017
Bottle.Sweet dark chocolate aroma. Classic dark porter appearance with a large and frothy brown tinged head. Sweet chocolate and malt flavour with a touch of bitterness. Full bodied with a slick oily texture. Long sweet finish. cmacklin (1303) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown almost black with a small, short lived, light brown head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, toffee and dates. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, licorice and a hint of vanilla with a dry, bitter, spicy rye finish. Medium to full body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty. thb (834) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2017
Darkest brown, half inch of tan head. Aroma is burnt toast, chocolate, dates. Taste is heavily chocolate immediately. Chocolate start to finish. There is a pretty bitter finish there. Rye is not obvious (I wouldn’t have been able to pick it out), but if you know it’s there it does explain a bit of heat/pepper that comes through. Interesting, and, i think, enjoyable. drpimento (3755) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2017
Its pretty good but basically is just another decent chocolate Porter that’s kind of amped on the Cocoa.

355ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light tan head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate with some light roasted grains and spicy notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a light roasted grain and spicy rye bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a balanced and tasty brew that I recommend to others.
