3.51/5 rDev +15.1%
Poured into Pint Glass from 341 mL bottle
A- Pours a beautiful Dark Ruby hue that is topped by a stunning 2 finger thick tan head. One of the more attractive Porters I have had the pleasure of sampling! Quite shocking from a beer that is owned by Molson Coors :').
S- Rickards Dark smells quite sweet! Many notes of dried fruit (mainly raisins) are prominent in this brew. Quite inviting to the nose!
T- The taste of this is much like the nose (sweet). I was expecting to experience some roastiness (great quality in a porter/stout) that did not make itself known in the beer. Although it wasn't entirely up to expectations, the flavor is nice and quite enjoyable!
M- Low carbonation to medium carbonation. Slightly more carbonation than the average porter. Quite thin compared to other Porters but still quite enjoyable nonetheless.
O- If you, like myself, are into craft beers and are thinking about picking this brew up, don't be turned off by the fact that Rickards is owned/made by Molson Coors. From what I've tasted so far, the Rickards line is far superior to its macrobrewed brethren in every single aspect. Rickards Dark is no exception: It offers a beautiful glassful of goodness that is incredibly sessionable(like any good porter should be). Do yourself a favor now and pick up a Rickards taster pack (like I did) and I am willing to bet that you won't be disappointing with a majority of the Rickards line.

Definitely not like any porter I've had before, this ale pours more of a caramel colour than a solid black, with a one finger head that quickly goes away. Smells of dark bread and noble hops. Taste is sweet at first, with a finishing bitterness of hops and chocolate. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonated. Not a bad beer, but not a good one either.
