Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Dark brown to black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, some roastiness and light chocolate notes. Mildly roasty flavor with coffee beans, a bit "green" and a bit of nutty hints. Medium-bodied. samzim (428) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 Rich aroma of dark roasted coffee and chocolate. Opaque deep brown colour with tints of red when held to the light. Heavy flavour of coffee as well as notes of dark chocolate with a medium bitterness. Full bodied without being to thick. I’d definitely buy again koppertone (63) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours a nice brown red. Lots of head that dissapates quickly. Smells like malts, coffee. Tastes similar with a nice balance of bitterness. No hops but don’t expect much in this category. Decent and I’d get again. ljthiessen (1348) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Dark pour, small off-white head. The aroma, while mild, is very pleasant dark coffee. Flavour is more coffee with malt and hints of vanilla and chocolate. Very clean, simple, tasty and easy drinking. I absolutely love the flavour, but I just wish there was more of it. Not very robust for a porter.

Stong coffee aroma and flavor with hints of chocolate, vanilla and yeast. Not too bitter, not too sweet.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2013 A good tasting beer. I thought I should just try one thinking the coffee taste might be over powering like other coffee beers I have tasted (I am not much of a coffee drinker). But this one was well balanced, good tasting beer overall. sudomorph (1167) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours black with a half finger, creamy, off white head. Bubbles can be seen rising to the top. Leaves good lacing.
Smells slightly bitter with hints of coffee.
Taste is of roasted coffee. Slightly bitter but not much. Not too much else.
Light body. Slightly watery for my liking but not bad. Low to medium carbonation.
A good coffee brew but not much else. Boatdrinks (10) - - JUN 24, 2013
Out of the many coffee stouts and porters that I have tried this beer is with my top three. It's got a great malty coffee flavor with a very subtle hint of vanilla. The thick body of the beer helps it linger on the pallet with a very nice finish

A great blend of high quality Balzac’s coffee beans in a rich dark beer. No need for an after dinner coffee when your meal is accompanied by this fine brew. I enjoyed this drink along with a flight of interesting brews in the newly-opened Mill Street Beer Hall. A Beer Lovers’ Paradise!!!! brentcusack (3) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2013 does not count
Aroma of dark chocolate
Colour is black with a thin, tan head
Sweet, espresso taste
A bit light in taste for a porter
