4.18/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: molasses brown, dark and glossy, pouring a full hazelnut head that's dense and has good retention

Aroma: chocolate and smoke, vanilla

Taste & Mouthfeel: a beautiful blend of chocolate and peat, the latter trailing through the finish, leaving tendrils of smoke right until you go for the next sip - but not over-powering; dark chocolate flavour is rich and slightly bitter, and complimented by a full, satiny mouthfeel it makes for a luxurious feel

Overall: a porter with a wonderful balance of vibrant flavours, a delight for winter, and easy drinking; open up the barbecue and get some nice char on a steak to go with this, maybe with some charred vegetables marinated in citrus

Bit disappointing for what it could be. Drab-ish and flat.

500 ml bottle served at cellar temperature into a pint glass. Purchased from the LCBO for $4.60 CDN.

Appearance - Pours a very dark brown colored beer, with garnet hues when instesely scrutinized in the light. A finger of fluffy tan head is poured and retention is modest leaving behind a thin film on top of the beer and some minor streaks of lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell - Roasty, but subdued. Some earthy elements, with faint hints of smoke and a mention of coffee.

Taste - Starts bitter with a coffee and peat flavor up front before some smoke finally kisses your mouth. A faint fruity flavor kicks in momentarily on the backside adding a little to the complexity. Overall finish is quite smokey and slightly wooden tasting.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and nicely carbonated, body is thinner than you' expect, but about right for a light porter.

Overall - Certainly a very good beer, and for those who love subtlety Beadeca's Well does it better than most. Only problem was that I was looking for just a little more smoke, and I think this could be a great beer. Still nice interplay between the smoke, coffee and wood.
