In this quite dark ale, dark malts provide flavors of coffee and dried fruit. Try with dark chocolate, cheese or red meat dishes.

Pours really dark brown, almost black, seems a bit oily. Small mocha head for quite some time.
Rich roasted malts on the nose, a bit smokey, some chocolate cake, some light coffee, some dried plum and fig. A really intense fragrance, tho.
Taste is strong as well, with some dark fruit up front, not too complex (plum, fig, fresh raisin), but backed up by a touch of spirit. A little bit of citrus hidden in there, but the roasted malts show up, rich and smokey, like burnt toast and chocolate brownie crust. Doesn't get too heavy tho, and the hops are pretty shy, so the finish isn't too dry or bitter.
Aftertaste has some bit of coffee, roasted malts, a light dark fruit note lingering. Medium bodied, low carbonated, but really smooth.
A flavorful porter that's really easy to drink. And drink. And drink.

500ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $6 or so back in 2012

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

Smell - Malts, chocolate, coffee

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, milk chocolate, and coffee. There is also a light amount of dark fruit and a touch of a smokiness.

Overall - Really smooth and it has a nice high quality chocolate flavour. The light fruitiness work really well with rest of the flavours. A great beer that I should have bought more of when I had the chance.
