Bottle from the brewery
Pours a solid dark brown with ruby highlights and a smallish off white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aromas of roasted grain, toffee, caramel and hints of earthy. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Decent porter, I prefer them a bit more robust, but this one is tasty.

On tap at the Henry House in downtown Halifax, on a crisp early fall afternoon. Doesn't get much better than this in terms of setting.
Poured into a Propeller nonic glass. Dark, chestnut brown, nearly black, with a thick creamy head which survives throughout the pint. Sheets of creamy lacing. Great looking porter.
Nose is dark fruit, dark coffee, dark chocolate, cream, caramel. Good malt profile.
An excellent, well-crafted porter which has some lovely roasted grain, caramel, dark coffee and cream notes to it. Dry finish.
Medium-thin bodied, watery, but with a pleasant creaminess.
Holds up well a few years after I last had it, and with it being on draught a few blocks from where it was brewed, it certainly was at its very freshest, which made it taste all the better.

Got this one last summer from a fellow beer lover. Cheers!

APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking, light tan head with good retention. Dark brown, transparent body with next to no carbonation evident. Head fades to a splotchy wisp and ring, but leaves no lacing down the glass.
SMELL: Roasted and dark malts, dark chocolate, and some sweet vanilla cream. Light milk chocolate notes as well. Still bold enough with some nice cream aromas.
TASTE: Follows the nose nicely, with roasted and chocolate malts, sweet cream and vanilla flacors up front. More cream at the swallow with a light touch of bitter coffee and powdered cocoa. Mild but lingering aftertaste is a nice mix of roasted malts, sweet cream and bitter cocoa. Pretty good really.
PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. A little light, unfortunately, but creamy enough on the palate, Goes down smooth and finishes slightly dry. A touch more weight would help here.
OVERALL: A good beer that has held up well I imagine. While it is probably bolder, more aromatic and flavorful when fresh, this was certainly a pleasure to drink after a couple years. A fuller palate and it would be even more of a pleasure, but that is often my complaint with this style. Regardless, well worth checking out if you get the chance. Cheers guys! Recommended.

A - Pours pitch black, finger of head with little retention and some sporadic lacing.
S - Cocoa and burnt toast, hints of espresso and milk chocolate.
T - The flavour is a bit more tart than implied by the nose, the espresso dominates with some bitter dark cocoa come through on the finish. Some leafy greens hop notes also creep through.
M - Medium, smooth and a touch of dryness.
O - A tasty porter that leans a bit more on the bitter side than the sweet side. Nicely balanced and easy drinking, flavourful and a solid sample of the style. Well worth a try and easily sessoinable.

Definitely a beer I'd recommend!
Pours a dark, clear brown with amber highlights at the edges of the glass. Limited coffee-coloured head and lacing. Mouthfeel is not oily or creamy, perhaps even a bit thin, but I enjoyed drinking it.
Aroma of roasted chocolate malts is absolutely lovely. Well balanced taste mirrors the smell and is followed by a pleasantly bitter and lingering dry finish, with an unexpected hint of smokiness...
