Day 2. Big improvement. Clear, deep brown pour. Aroma is mostly roast mal, some smokiness, some chocolate. Taste is the same with some burnt caramel, some great piney hops and hop bitterness. A bit thin, but I could drink a lot of this.

A little watery on the front, earthy flavour comes thru on the back. Lite version of a typical porter. Bitterness is nicely balanced.

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
BeerAdvent 2013 Day 2. Pours translucent dark brown off-white head. Nose is mild roast, toffee, nuts. Flavour is mild choc, toffee, ash, slight licorice. Very refreshing, for a porter. More robust than the average English porter and less so than the aggressive burnt malt Americans, cuts down the middle in a nice way.

presario (4695) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
OK, this is much better for Advent Calendar Day 2. Mahogany with light head. Malty aroma with nice touch of sticky booze. Warm malt flavor. Some chocolate, a bit of sourness and hops. Nice aftertaste with some burnt toffee notes.

jjgmd (1494) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle. pours a dark opaque deep brownish black color, with a nice java head. Nose is malty, with coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is malty with sweet chocolate notes, and very light. Finish is a nice bittersweet. Decent drinkable porter from the backroads of Alabama. Quaff Score 7 / 10

zgaier (1445) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Pours brown with a tan head and aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Roasted malt, sweet chocolate, and smokey notes at first, while light bodied, with a dry, roasty chocolate finish. Light, drinkable, solid porter that goes down easy

wpr (4) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 20, 2013 does not count
Overall a decent beer. Not much for aroma. Nice chocolate and roasted malt flavor is what makes this beer. Poured from a bottle - appearance just doesn't do it for me.

CapFlu (4589) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
Lasting creamy almond-coloured head atop a deep brown body. Nose of roasted malt. Toasty flavour, some bitter chocolate and very mild soya sauce. A good porter.

Lukaduke (2317) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours a deep mahogany color with some thinness along the edges that lends a almost ruby color with a finger of khaki fizz. The nose is roast sweet chocolate, prune and candy rootbeer barrels. The palate is close to the nose... a bit sweet, thin, roasted char, a bit artificial.
