Enjoyed in Vieux Montreal, bottle into glass.

For me, a very decent porter, just nothing mind-bending. All very solid on look (dissipating head, nice deep brown), smell and taste--a not-too-dense, slightly nutty and chocolatey taste and flavor for me, and feel (smooth). I rate this higher than average here.

Need to preface this review with the fact that I'm not traditionally a huge fan of the style.

Look - pitch black colour, with a 1/2" caramel head
Smell - coffee, with a very roasted malt/toast aroma
Taste - lightly sweet start, notes of chocolate and coffee, dry and bitter finish
Feel - medium body/creaminess

Very pleasant and drinkable porter

Pitch black with a small head. Amazing smell, dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malts in the nose. Same flavours are present in the mouth too, with some black licorice also. Really creamy , really pleasant to drink.

Very good porter with nice roasted coffee flavours. This beer was one of the first porter style beers I had and it made for a pleasant first experience.

Pleasantly surprised with this one. Lots of coffee and roasted flavours, and very smooth. A nice, subtle porter that I would get again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

App: Brownish black with ruby red tint. Creamy tan, 2 fingers head.

Smell: Bready, fresh dough, cocoa, molasses, toffee, some fruity bananas n cloves notes from the yeast, roasted grains, nuts, coffee with a bit of smoke (or charred) and licorice.

Taste: Baked bread, cracker, roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, a bit of black licorice, a bit of charred, very pleasant and not overwhelming, with an herbal and earthy finish.
Light medium mouthfeel and a very nice creamy body. Medium carbonation.

Well balanced. Everything is meshed together nicely. Great drinkability. Very sessionable. You cant really go wrong with this one. Very enjoyable experience. Will i buy again? Yes. I recommand it.

84/100 (overall) - 87/100 (porter)

One finger cap of beigeish/brown head. Deep brown, bordering black, with ruby red highlights. Malty aroma. Chocolate, slightly nutty,and more fruity that i would have originally expected. Carbonation may be a bit "bitey" for and English style porter but the body is nice and creamy. Pretty straight forward very approachable, very drinkable. This is what a porter is supposed to be.
