Light roast and dark cocoa malt in aroma. Nice, chocolatey flavor, nutty malt backbone, with a lightly bitter finish. Great example of the style, albeit a touch sweet.

750ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $6.50 or so

Appearance - Dark brown colour with an average size frothy/fizzy beige head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and coffee. There is also some vanilla and a bit of an odd musty/fishy type of flavour I can't put my finger on.

Overall - I think my bottle might be a little out of date. Unless the sour milk/oyster type flavour in intentional? A decent beer but the 750ml format is not ideal for me. Worth a try.

The tasting notes on this one are spot on. It definitely has the big malty flavor and the bit of astringency on the finish. It's color is a very dark brown which can just barely be seen through when light is shown through.

Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into a dimpled mug. A pretty fancy presentation for a humble porter!

Appearance: rich brown hue with no haze. Head is a nice layer of creamy tan foam.

Smell: very rich aroma of chocolate, toffee, caramel and coffee, roughly in that order of intensity. One of the most rich and complex aromas I've experienced in a porter.

Taste: roasty but smooth flavor, with more subtle hints of chocolate and toffee. Not quite as complex as the aroma, but I actually think it works very well. I'm a big fan of this.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a very nice creaminess.

Overall: I'm a porter fan, and this one really hits the spot. It has good complexity where it needs it, but remains highly drinkable. This is a great beer.
