Dogbrick (11467) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Sample at the DBLDP on 09/02/2012: Dark reddish-brownish pour with a medium foamy light tan head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of roasted nuts, malt and a touch of hops. Light to medium body with a roasty and briny character with notes of dank malt and herbal hops. The finish is short and malty.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of fucken a brosmer, I believe. Thanks! Pours a dark brown appearance with a creamy, dark brown head. A fair amount of anise, roast, and dark chocolate in the nose along with some coffee notes. Somewhat bitter, dull herbal hoppy, dark bready, coffee flavor. Decent.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2015
12oz bottle, picked up 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Dark brown, slight red color. Mostly opaque. Thin tan head. Decent retention. Decent lace. Kind of metallic overall, mild oxidization is the first impression. Some toast, a lot of ash. Mildly astringent moderate bitter taste, light sweet, more dry finish. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation, mildly full feel. From the description, looks like this is intended to be a hoppier porter -- "fresh hops", I’m reading now... Very mild citrus aroma here, just astringent bitterness. Try dating your bottles if you care about the end consumer, Back Forty. I have the feeling this could have been pretty great fresh. Was challenging to get through.
