ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2013
11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark cola color. A one-finger head of light mocha shading is formed, fading to a thin film rapidly. Not much lacing is left on the glass. S: There’s a bit of dry chocolate on the nose, backed by very mild hopping, some fruity esters (even a hint of tartness), and some toffee. The aroma is a bit plain, but far from bad. T: The start is quite fruity, before developing a chocolaty middle and vaguely mineral-esque finish. It’s easy drinking nature offsets its simplicity somewhat. M: It’s a bit thin, and perhaps even watery. The empty finish is very disappointing, though it has a positive effect of creating fantastic drinkability. O: Not a bad attempt at a porter - however, it still needs some work. Making it a bit more flavorful would be a great start, but I at least enjoy how drinkable it is.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a nice black color with a small tan head. The aroma is malt, plain and simple. The taste is smoky malt. A very enjoyable beer.

Pretty much zero carbonation. Reasonably sure this got lightly infected at some stage. Some light acidity in a bit of chocolate. Not for me.

wombat23 (602) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2016
Shared bottle. Pours dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma is fairly malty, a little burnt, light roast. Taste is burnt dark malts, earth, ash, and nuts. Weak and watery for a porter. Lacks oomph.

rustbucket0873 (372) - Krikville, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Pours black with tan head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is spices, coffee, and some earthy and nutty. Not much to nose. Flavor is earthy, with caramel, coffee, snd chocolate, nutty, sweet, and sour flavor at the rear, co2 should have q bit more. Overall, bland not alot to pick out making it complex

floydslip (336) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Dark cola colored beer with a thin foamy beige head. Nose of unsweetened cocoa, brown sugar, and a little bit of smoke. Flavor is consistent with the aroma and is pretty good, although the thin mouth feel keeps the flavors from lingering. Certainly drinkable, but not the most flavorful porter out there.

Aroma of smoked malt, and dark cocoa. Pours a great looking dark brown with a medium lasting, thick creamy head with some lacing. Taste of malt, smoke, slightly sweet with hints of coffee. Weak body, slightly watery with a short lasting smoky malt finish.
