Mill Street Brewery-Coffee Porter
The Coffee Porter comes from Toronto. It's sold in 341mL bottles and contains 5.5% alcohol. According to the bottle, it's made with Balzac's dark roasted coffee. The colour is very dark, but not totally opaque. When poured, it features a creamy brownish head.
Not surprisingly, coffee features prominently in the the aroma, flavour and aftertaste. This gives the beer a very robust quality. However, there's more to this brew than a cuppa joe. There is a rich porter flavour that is complemented by the coffee, not overwhelmed by it.
This beer is definitely worth a taste. Porter fans, go get this one.
