Nice smooth chocolate porter. Had it on tap at their brew pub in Gettysburg. Maybe a little thin, but definately smooth and drinkable

A mild, English-style porter that has little in the way of aroma or roastiness. While I miss the aroma, there are times when I enjoy a mild porter with some malt and little bitterness. Pleasant.

On tap at ABC. THis was very smoooth and enjoyable at the brewery, however, when I had it at another bar on tap it was somewhat different and had a metallic taste and wasnt nearly as smooth.(maybe bad tap lines) Overall it had a slight roasty aroma and flavor, but the caramel malts came through a little more. Although this beer is well attenuated and has a dry finish, it somehow retains a very nice body and mouthfeel. Very well done.

very simliar to ABC’s stout. Not as dry or as dark. More of a roast to it, more flavor overall. A slightly above average porter.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Cask... Poured a dark brown / red color with a medium sized tan head that left nice lacing. Weak roasty, chocolate cream aroma. Nice chocolate taste, some more roast and light smoke, cherries as well. Very thin mouthfeel. Not a bad porter.

On tap at brewpub (Harrisburg). Dark brown pour, almost black, with a small off-white head. Coffee and light chocolate nose with some roasted malt. Deep roasted and burnt malt flavor with lots of coffee on the finish. Nice clean flavor. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, actually a little too fizzy maybe. Pretty crisp finish with good length. Nice roasty Porter, maybe a little thin on the finish but nicely balanced and very drinkable.
