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!!!!

Dark brown pour, creamy head. Robust. Outstanding coffee nose, hints of chocolate. Coffee taste is intense, very pleasant. Smooth. Very unique, very rich. One of my favorite porters and one of my favorite Canadian beers.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2012 April 24 2012. 341ml bottle poured into pint glass. Pours black with 3" dark tan head. Head is highly carbonated and little bubbles dissipate to leave a 1" light bubbly cap. Aroma is rich coffee and oats. Taste is an incredible balance of coffee slight sweetness of malt and chocolate and bitterness from hops and coffee. This coupled with high level of carbonation give it a fun fizzy mouthfeel where flavours all mingle together distinctly (if that makes sense). Palate is very thin, more watery than what I expected making it very easy to drink. Too fun to be taken seriously as a beer but too good to find fault.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2003 Intense espresso(double?) nose. Deep brown, hint of red at the edges, negligible toffee head. Wonderful espresso flavoured offerring. Superbly balanced, dry and oh so satisfying. Marvelous. Brewmaster Michael Duggan has created the epitome of the style!

SeamusNeko (45) - Anacostia, Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2004
Equipment: Small stubby bottle served at cellar temp in a water goblet. Appearance: Inky black topped by a smallish dark brown head that doesn’t retain so well, nor does it leave much in the way of lacing. Aroma: Coffee rules the nose here. Nice aromas of dark roasted coffee. Slight whiffs of burnt caramel sugars. Very little hopping. Flavor: Robust taste of dark coffee with maybe a little sugar added, but not enough to make it syrupy sweet. Palate: Robustly medium bodied with lingering bitter coffee aftertastes. Overall: Rather drinkable if you make sure that it is had about the same time as you might have your last cup of coffee for the day. There must have been a crapload of caffeine in this as I was up all night with the spilches. Went great with the creme brule with Grand Marinier flavoring.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2006 A great porter. I love the strong taste of coffee and dark chocolate in the after taste.
