    Thin porter it is. But, it still has some decent characteristics. Nice ceramic bottle with swing-top from the LCBO. Pours a clean dark brown, see-through, with red highlights. Frothy beige head with average retention and a little lace. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits, caramel, with hints of burnt wood and the cognac alcohol warmth. Wet thin mouthfeel and the taste seems watered-down. Some roasted burnt malts show up in the finish thankfully. Notes of dark fruits, hop bitterness, watery molasses and coffee. This could of been much better, had it had a stronger alcohol content (to have more punch in the mouth). Still, worth trying.

    Nice looking ceramic swing top bottle, so that's probably 2$ right there. Poured an extremely pitch black colour and barely has any head, mostly large bubbles. Weak lacing. Mocha and malt aromas. A bit of caramel notes, nutty. Mild burnt smell, not offensive. Flavours of burnt roasted malts, wheats, mild cognac taste coming in the finish. Alcohol somewhat noticeable. Seems a bit watered down. More of an occasional type brew. Cognac becomes a bit more at the forefront when it's a bit warmer. Not that great, just ok.

    500ml ceramic flip-top bottle
    5.0% ABV

    The beer pours a coca-colour colour with absolutely no head despite a vigourous pour. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, wood, and some smoke. No cognac from what I can smell. Mouthfeel is very thin (quite watery actually) for a porter with medium carbonation. Flavour is roasted malt, wood, and some alcohol. Not a lot in the way of coffee, especially when it can be accounted for from an olfactory standpoint.

    500ml crown topped ceramic swing top bottle: Nice looking bottle but what you get is a thin porter with a "Little bit of" - grape skin and oak, coffee, roast grains, vanilla and astringent hops - very little. At least there are no off tastes. Oh why oh why do I fall for this tarted up Trafalgar mediocrity every time!!! For 9 bucks you get a 1 dollar porter in a 6 dollar bottle - Trafalgar ripped off the other 2 bucks. Actually it’s not bad just needs a richer porter, longer in the barrel and a massive price slash.
