Growler from the brewery,

Pours a clear dark brown ale with ruby highlights into the tulip, Massive coffee colored cap last well and laces.

Aroma has some roast and coffee notes no hint of hops, and some funky green beer odors.

Mouth feel and body are thinner than one expects in this style (perhaps some flaked barley would bulk up the body) .

Flavor is rather two dimensional with coffee, roast malt and some subtle sweetness dominating. Fast finish is bitter from coffee but tagging along are some green beer tastes.

This has good potential as a coffee porter Like all their ales do) but it is unfinished....the funky green beer tastes indicate not enough conditioning time.

Had this on tap at C'est What. It came out looking impressive. Brown, verging on black colour with off-white head. It smelled of coffee and chocolate and a bit of cigarettes, which was weird. It had the same taste. There seemed to be a really good beer under the ash tray taste, but I just wasn't able to enjoy it. It was still smooth and could have been an excellent porter without the off-putting aspects.

On-tap at C'est What.

This beer appears a dark brown hue, with red edges, and a thin cap of soapy off-white head, which leaves no lace. It smells of roasted malt, kind of ashy. The taste is sour roasted malt, a bit of generic fruitiness, and mild bitter coffee. The carbonation is moderate, the body medium weight, and kind of clammy, and it finishes dry, the somewhat unpleasant marriage of veggies and bland coffee holding sway.

A pretty average porter, off-flavours too prevalent. Sorry, try again.

Pours a nice ebony black with a thin tan head, looks like coca-cola after a while.

Smells of smokey coffee, subtle hops and chocolate-caramel sweetness.

Coffee definitely dominates the taste, a long a nice roasted-smoke flavour. There seems to be a slight sour-yeast taste also that sort of doesn't belong here. Finishes with a nice burnt bitter flavour

Somewhat thin mouthfeel for a porter, but still very drinkable. Not bad coming from them.

Lenny's growler, and now I too become a reviewer of the beer. Promising start, with black body and white head (and later white lace. Its downhill from there, with really odd smells, not the glass but it is bleach and soap. Same in second cup. Very dry, thin. Chocolate most of all.

Growler and bottle samples. Most recent at Brennan's Beer Bistro in London Ontario- Dark coffee pour, has a frothy and long lived mocha froth, which provides good lace. Simple nose has mild roast, black coffee, some vanilla, dark malts, subtle hops. Tastes of freshly ground black coffee, quite bitter, some vanilla, roasted malts. This is very coffee forward, and really seems like a coffee centered beer, unlike others that pretend. Roasty, bitter, lengthy black coffee finish. A bit thin on the finish, seems thinner than the Pullman Porter, but the world isn't perfect.Well made.
