This medium-bodied ale is dark in color and deceiving on the palate. The glassy smooth finish of this beer is your first hint that dark in color doesn't always mean heavy in stomach.

Poured from a bottle, opaque black, with an off why head that quickly goes away. Not much of a aroma. As you drink the Coffee overtone of the malts come through. Very little hop taste. Classic Porter and a very good beer if you are not looking for anything hoppy.

12 oz. bottle. Pours brown/black with a thin foamy khaki head that fades to a wispy film and collar. Aroma has good roasted malt little coco and coffee and faint vanilla/toffee. Taste starts bitter with roasted malt some coffee and bakers chocolate and slightly nutty. Palate is thin to medium with a dry finish. Very easy drinking porter with good flavors.

Had it on tap at Ale Asylum in Madison Wi. Poured a dark black hue with no head or lacing. Slight coffee aroma with an equally subtly tasting coffee taste.

Draft at the brewpub. Midnight black. A coffee monster ... All the way in the aroma and flavor. Silky smooth on the palate, this would be great for breakfast. (#5115, 7/2/2013)

Bottle. Pours opaque brown, medium tan head, good lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and cigarettes. Flavor is the same with a bit of old chocolate. Light sWeet, astringent, and bitter.

Dark brown. Medium light brown head, reducing, partially lasting. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, coffee, some caramel. Flavor matches. Slick light to medium body. Tasty and drinkable.

Pours a very hazy, dark brown with a half finger of tan head that does not dissipate. A lot of sediment, so I guess you can take this review for what its worth. Had aromas of roasted malts, vanilla, toffee, and molasses. Real sweet all the way down. Medium bodied beer, slick and sticky mouthfeel. Strong toffee aftertaste lingers for a while. Decent beer, I am going to look out a fresher version in the future.

Tortman18 (174) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha, bubbly head and a decent amount of lacing. There is a TON of sediment in this beer. Nose is very chocolatey with hints of vanilla and strong roasted malt. A unique anise note is hidden behind the roast. Mouth is very chocolatey with anise coming through again. A perfect roastiness is present. medium body with a very smooth finish.
