In Canada my go-to coffee porter was Mill Street. Good to know there are some south of the border too. Found this one in the mix-your-own-six-pack shelf at Wegman's.

a: dark, fizzy. Head goes away fast.

s: like a donut shop. o.o Very strong coffee aroma with a faint whiff of vanilla.

t: might be the smoothest, easiest-drinking combo of coffee and beer that I've ever tasted. The vanilla is still just barely at the fringes of perception, very nice and natural.

m: a little too thin and fizzy. I was hoping for something more creamy.

o: definitely a winner, will buy again for sure.

Looks very dark and deep but closer look shows a solid caramel color.

Coffee smell is very bold. Smell caramel as well.

Bitter starts the intense coffee tastes. Tastes exactly as it smells. Finishes with a smooth caramel coating.

Not very impressed but I will chalk it up to me being a novice.
