Rickard's Dark

Rickard's Dark (4.8%): a porter from Canada. Let me see, I tried Rickard's Red and White, now it's time for the darker ... you've guessed it: Rickard's Dark. This porter is brewed with maple syrup? Why? To make it more Canadian?

  • Pours a dark brown Coca-Cola-like liquid.
  • Smells nothing.
  • Flavor is thin, especially for the style: some maltiness and caramel.
  • Aftertaste is light as well. It's slightly sweet, caramel-like.
  • Weak buzz.
  • Boring bottle.


Verdict: a thin inoffensive brew. Won't kill you but quite bland.


Grade:C+
