Project X at The Rhino, on-tap. Flat out the best porter I have had Ontario made. Spot on the style, smoth drinker. Not opaque black with only a litle head. Creamy mouthfeel, tasty, popular by GL staff as well who were having sample after sample. Milk chocolatey. Just bitter enough and rated at 45 ibu.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 2012-01-12. Solid porter, seemed sweeter and less roasty than the Reserve Stache version in both the aroma and flavour. Very drinkable, smooth medium to full bodied palate. Quite nice. On tap at the brewery for Project X as Harry Porter.JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2011
2011-11-10. Brown tinged black body, modest tan head and lace. 3+ Dry roasty malt, fairly bitter throughout, dry roasty character lingers. 7+ Similar aroma, modest roast over dry malt. 7+ Average plus palate. Solid, well made porter. On tap at Rhino for Project X as Great Lakes Brewing Burt Reynolds Reserve Stache Porter
Cask at C’est What. Deep black pour with a tight brown head. The aroma has a lot of cocoa and some softly roasty. There is a little bit of roast and some chewy herbal aroma. Soft and a little bit earthy. Some chewy character as well as a touch of black patent malt. A lot of roast and a fairly assertive bitterness along with a little bit of toast as well. Really tasty stuff. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 [4089-20111110] Cask. Roasty wood malt aroma has boozy sweet caramel hints. Black red-hued body with a medium-lasting creamy brown head. Roasted sweet coffee ground malt flavour has a long lingering burnt aftertaste. Full body. Quite hearty and stout. (7/4/7+/4/16) 3.8~

[4247B-20120112] Tap. Lightly burnt wood charcoal aroma. Black body with a long-lasting creamy tan head. More burnt wood and a light barnyard straw poop pile in the flavour. Full body. Good. (7/5-/7/4/14) 3.7

Strong bitter hops, seems almost too much of a presence for a porter, and some bitter coffee. Decent but my mistake was drinking it right after an imperial stout and a dipa. Pours black, decent carbonation. On tap at Burger Bar. blankboy (7662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
Cask at at Rhino for Project X. Pours a nice looking very dark brown with ruby highlights and a small diminishing creamy light-brown head. Aroma starts with coffee followed by roasted malt and some chocolate. Delicious flavour of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, cream, some light leafy hops and a roasty bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. One of the best Porters I’ve had in quite a while, fantastic. Radek Kliber (7316) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 14, 2012

Aroma mild dark roast notes. Mild bit muted nose.
Appearance brown-black with thin beige top.
Flavor and Palate : medium light body. Plus carbonation. Good roast feel, hint of charcoal. It was lacking some spirit. Goof front but follow up was rather weak.
Liquide assez brun pour être, d’un autre point de vue, presque noir. Mousse beige a priori épaisse. Dentelles qui décorent l’intérieur de mon verre. Le nez exhibe des parfums de malts rôtis teintés de chocolat et de café avec des houblons en terre et en herbes. Au goût, les céréales sont noires, torréfiées et légèrement brûlées. Les houblons sont se manifestent. Le chocolat s’invite et des saveurs de noix arrivent. En bouche, son corps est arrondi et la texture est crémeuse. En finale, l’amertume des malts est accompagné par des houblons et un effet chocolaté. Canette de 473 ml achetée sur place par une âme charitable. ads135 (4587) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 13, 2013
Pretty good porter. Lots of chocolate, some grape juice, and cocoa. Slick mouthfeel and a nice tan head.
