AleRider78 (956) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
On tap at the Arrow and Loon in Ottawa. Has a thick brownish foamy head and a dark brown appearance. Very thick dirty lacing. Aromas of chocolate, mocha and dark roasted malts. Flavours are also very much chocolate influenced but with notes of vanilla, coffee and hints of caramel sweetness and resin hops. Has a mild warming sensation. Full bodied mouthfeel and some slickness. Nice bitterness and quite smooth on the palate. Another really good GLB brew and probably the first ive enjoyed on tap and not bottled. :)

Pours dark mahogany with a beige head. Aroma is roasted coffee and chocolate. Flavour is the same as aroma with a smokey background. Smooth full body and easy to drink. Well done.

ILduce (276) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2017 Half pint @Hungry Brew Hops in Newmarket, Ontario. Black/brown with Nice tan, frothy head and amazing lace. Big, bold roasted malts with some hop and wood content. Taste is very roasted with vanilla and chocolate, backed up by some earthy tones. Medium to full-bodied with a very balanced, but layered character. Finishes with a good bitterness. Fantastic porter.

JunctionCat (76) - toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2017
Best imperial Porter around. Rich and deep like a stout, with complex flavours, not a one note beer. Easy enough to drink, great choice for winter relaxing but could also do a summer BBQ in moderation. A kind of hidden gem with all the attention the IPAs get, this one is top notch.

Nitro pour at bar hop. Pours dark brown/black with an off white head. Milk choc aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Prunes, choc, coffee, light lemon, bitter choc... Smooth and very drinkable. More stout than porter, though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Liquide assez brun pour tre, dun autre point de vue, presque noir. Mousse beige a priori paisse. Dentelles qui dcorent lintrieur de mon verre. Le nez exhibe des parfums de malts rtis teints de chocolat et de caf avec des houblons en terre et en herbes. Au got, les crales sont noires, torrfies et lgrement brles. Les houblons sont se manifestent. Le chocolat sinvite et des saveurs de noix arrivent. En bouche, son corps est arrondi et la texture est crmeuse. En finale, lamertume des malts est accompagn par des houblons et un effet chocolat. Canette de 473 ml achete sur place par une me charitable.
