Purchased a single at the LCBO. Served at 4deg C in a tulip

A- Opens well and pours a ton of brown head that stays forever. Very dark brown almost black color

S- Good nose. Lots of malt.

T- Rather easy drinking. Light almost. Good nuts and coffee. Very mellow. Almost too mellow

M- Fairly light for a porter. Brought the score down a bit

O- Pretty good porter. Enjoyed a lot but will not buy again

Food Pairing

This pretty good porter went well with..... Roasted pork sandwiches

Enjoy!

4.1/5  rDev 0%

Appearance: deep, dark brown, with ruby hue at the edges; thick, fine head the colour of espresso crema

Aroma: chocolate, clove, light overall; lactose; caramel

Taste & Mouthfeel: semi-sweet chocolate chips, marshmallow; there's a lightness to it, an airiness - medium-light body, fine carbonation; dry, bitter finish as you'd get from coffee, but sweeter - that surgary note is the backbone really, rounding out the full, roasty flavours

Overall: wonderful, pure chocolate flavours, like chocolate milk in beer form, so obviously better; light, flowing body make it incredibly easy-drinking
