burnabyt (27) - - FEB 14, 2013
Poured from a 650 bomber. Thin Mocha colored Head recedes quickly. Too thin for my liking, (think bath bubbles). chocolate alcohol nose. Thin mouthfeel. Needs more carbonation. Body is appropriately a dark chocolate brown. Taste is okay. Hints of molasses. May appeal to some due the chocolate, but I find it comes off flat. Overall I'm disappointed, this was much better a few years ago. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really enjoyed this very smooth extremely dark porter. It was not overpowering but the chocalte was very prevalent in the taste. Definitely will buy this again.

cmacklin (1010) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 19, 2016
On tap. Pours a hazy dark brown with a medium, creamy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and vanilla. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and vanilla with a dry, mildly bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

QcBeer (165) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2016
De couleur noir avec une petite mousse. Une odeur de chocolat vient ouvrir le bal. Le sucre et le moka ferme le bal. En bouche, Cest un chocolat doux, dilu dans leau. Une porter bien dilu. Un faible taux dalcool lui joue des tours. Un petit gout de caf noir et chocolat qui est parfaitement dilu! Cest bien mais cest pas top!

Chilliwack, BC - Sardis Liquors - 650 ml bomber. Dark brown pour, mocha colored head, nice film of lacing. Heavy chocolate aroma, a hint of licorice. Flavor is solid with some unsweetened bakers chocolate, some earthy topsoil notes, a brief touch of licorice in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth, could have been just a tad thicker. Rating #32 of my 2016 vacation.

Bottle into glass. Aroma of chocolate with a hops background. Pours black with minimal tan head. Taste is medium bitter. Full bodied with an oily texture, and very fizzy carbonation. Would be good if it wasnt over carbonated.

Sample from brewery. Tastes of coco and milk chocolate. Lots of great dark and sweet malts. Not Bad but a little on the sweet side.
