Very dark brown appearance with ruby red tinges visible at the edges where light hits it. Aroma is of sweet, milky coffee. The taste is sweet with burnt notes and an interesting leathery flavour. Mouth feel is smooth and light to medium with mild carbonation.

Overall this is a good sweet tasty porter with a distinctive flavour. Very drinkable and sessionable but with pretty big flavours for the moderate alcohol level.

My mark out of 100 would be 88.

Had one of those a few years ago and I remembered it as really good but I was not impressed recently with the Fuller London Pride.

Poured it in a Pit Caribou pint glass. One of Gaspesie's nicest micro brewery. A small bubbly head formed and dissipated in mere seconds. Don't drink a porter if you want a 3 inch head. As Nigel would say, 'it's like, how much more black could this be. And the answer is none'. Got a beautiful blood red hue when held up to a light.

I get a nice whiff of brown sugar candied bacon.

That beer has got a good thickness while leaving the mouth oily with hoppy goodness. Man do I like a smoked Porter and this one gives it to you. Smoked malts on the intake, oats and dark bitter chocolate follow while you are left with a gooooood espresso aftertaste that will linger on for the next minutes.

Had some Dead Man's Party from Standard Vape while drinking this beer. It completely muted the cumby taste from the juice and left me with an otherwise pretty absent citrus note and brought a more natural blueberry flavor.

Expected a lot going in and I was not dissapointed. If you like a smoked porter, there's probably none more great!
