foosnbrews (144) - Parker, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Beer has a rich chocolate aroma with very low hop aroma and light esters. Beer poors black with a thin tan head. Flavor has a light sweetness, medium bitterness that is accentuated by the roasted malts. One the first drink, a light sour note is detected but fades quickly as the beer warms. Palate has a minor astringency, medium light body, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall a nice porter, well done.

Brouwerij (884) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 1/8/14:
Bottle. Pours brown with tan head, settles quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is mildly roasted and cocoa. Flavor is mild cocoa/chocolate with a mildly roasted finish and a sweet nutty, toasted aftertaste. Fairly mild and drinkable. Soft carbonation, medium-light body, and smooth texture. A mild, chocolatey porter.

8/29/13:
Bottle. Pours an opaque brown with big, frothy light tan head and some stringy lacing. Aroma is mild roasted malt, chocolate/cocoa, sweet. Flavor is mild roast, sweet cocoa, mild chocolate finish. Soft carbonation, medium-light body, very smooth and drinkable. Enjoyable, sweet, with mild chocolate and roast. Only complaint is that the flavor could be stronger, bolder, otherwise quite pleasant. A mild, tasty, smooth porter.

BeerFlavoredBeer (254) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Standard porter with good body and a better finish than some. Roasted flavors are right up front, but fade just in time to keep the finish from being too dry and bitter. Bit of smoke to it, as well.

wchesser (1002) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Dark brown, pretty thin and transparent core. Finger thick fast fading head. Nice, but weak caramel and toasted malt nose. Upfront caramel sweetness with a slightly bitter coffee tinged finish. Decent porter. Inoffensive, good for the price, no complaints.
