Head is small, mostly diminishing.
Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, caramel, coffee), with notes of vanilla, toffee, blackberry, anise.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation.
Very savory and aromatically pleasant! A little short of 4+ bliss, but quite solid. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2007

A good porter, very light alcohol in the flavour but it never becomes a distraction, good balance.
Bottle at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
Sampled on May 30, 2008.
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil: Very deep brown pour with a khaki ring of head. Rich yet soft aroma- some licorice notes and light vanilla under a predominantly chocolaty malt nose. Creamy body (all of his beers have a nice palate) Rich flavor but smooth- fudgey, only mildly roasted with a soft fruitiness from the yeast that meshes with the nice chocolty malt presence- light vanilla as well. A rich yet cohesive & easy drinker. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Tap at Mondial 2010. Pours a deep dark woody slight hazed brown with a decent lasting head. Aroma is very sweet, brown sugar, caramel malts, molasses, toasty nutty chocolate, spices, herbs and earthy notes with maple sugar. Flavor is maple, earth, big toast and leather with nutty dark chocolate, oily hints, tobacco leaf, sharp caramelized buttery toffee, tons of licorice and anise seed spice- moderately clean in the end though. czar (9616) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
Sweet dark fruits, a bit too sweet to my taste. Medium to heavy body. Bottle kept on foaming forever. Anyhow, microcarbonation, toffee, a bunch of flavours. Ho.st rocks. Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2011
A deep dark porter with a very thin moka head. A sweet bready chocolate aroma, musky, smooth alcohol notes, dark fruits, a bit of wet dough. In mouth, a smooth sweet chocolate with maraschino cherries, plums, some bananas, lingering coffee bitterness, dry and sustained. On tap at St-Bock, April 23rd, 2011.

Deep black beer with woody, fruity and roasty aromas. String taste of alcohol. A great beer in its style.
