sudomorph (1106) - Barrie, Ontario, - OCT 26, 2013
Cask Days 2013. Not sure if it’s bourbon aged. Pours a very dark brown with a a few bubbles around the ring. Aroma has hints of booze, caramel, and roasted malts. Taste is sweet but not unbalanced. Medium sweet/bitter aftertaste. Low-medium body and carbonation. Overall not bad. A bit thin with not much but a boozy flavor. Might order again to retry.

On tap at Indie Alehouse. Pitch black with thin white head that disappeared. Smells of roasted coffee and chocolate. Very smooth mouthfeel. Tastes of roasted coffee and chocolate. One of their better beers.

JunctionCat (55) - toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2016
Not usually a porter person, but this is always a consistent great beer and a great bottle to have in the fridge. Dark chocolate brown in colour and notes, has some coffee hints and roast - but smooth, so smooth. Could convert me to porters if they all tasted this good.

Kauge (1649) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 4, 2016
Tap at Indie Alehouse in Toronto. Sweetish, roasty, nuts and cocoa. Body lightish medium. Some faint bitterness in finish, also ashy dry. A classic, albeit a bit too sweet and low on the sourish roasty black bread crust I look for in a Porter. Enjoyable nonetheless.

flatmatt (1496) - Northville, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2016
On tap at Indie. Pours black with an off-white head. Rich coffee aroma with notes of cocoa and dark fruit, toffee. Roasty coffee flavor turning into toffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Really pretty impressed with this one; took a couple bottles home.

thorongil2 (2535) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2016
(tap) clear very dark brown colour with a small brown head; aroma of roast, fruit; balanced flavour with a long light bitter finish

Johnsense (1418) - - FEB 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Dark pour, smaller head. Cocoa and nut in the aroma, roasted malt. Chocolate up front, coffee like bitterness, oatmeal, roast. A little too sweet and a tad to thin but still worth exploring.

Whatup14 (1742) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2015

Ferris (13194) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2015
Draft - Nice roasty notes and some dark chocolate. Deep jet brown with a light brown head. Cocoa and lots of nutty sweet notes. Odd for a porter but pleasant.

On tap at the brewery. Stout brown, not much head. Smells a little roasty. Taste is sweet, roasty, and nutty. Body is excellent. Oatmeal. Great beer.

adamnowek (1967) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2015
Dark and delicious. Unlike other Indie offerings, this brew has a smooth texture with a hint of coffee, chocolate, and hops.
