Half pint at Mill Street Ottawa. From notes.

A - Poured amber, bright, with a one finger creamy head leaving great thick lace and a half finger of retention. Virtually black colour.

S - Vanilla was very strong. Some smokey notes and roasted malts as well. Very nice.

T - Vanilla, nice sweet malt, chocolate, roastiness.

M - Very creamy, medium body, gentle carbonation.

O/D - A very tasty vanilla porter. Very nice with strong flavours and very smooth. A pleasure.

Purchased at the LCBO for just under $3.00 Served at 10deg C in a draught glass.

A- Pretty good. Open with a carbon dioxide ball. Poured typical to a CO2 ball. Dark but clear.

S- Excellent. Vanilla upon vanilla. Excellent scent

T- Excellent! Enjoyed the first smash to what you thought was going to be less than what it is.

M- Pretty good. Not that creamy at all

O- Very good. Will buy again for sure.

Food Pairing

This nice little porter paired well with... chocolate. The vanilla goes so well with Belgium chocolate. Yum!!!

S: Vanilla, cappuccino, coffee, cream.

T: Vanilla cappuccino, dark toasted malts, light sweetness, creamy.


M: Creamy and smooth with the nitro head, clean foamy powdery finish.
