Bottle - from sampler pack. Very dark brown and nearly opaque. Quite roasty aroma. Very good porter - right ammount of roast without going into stout territory.

12 oz bottle I picked up at Bethlehem brew pub. Served in chalice. Thinner tan head dissipates reasonably quick. A good amount of lacing on glass. Beer is black in color. No light comes through at all. Aroma is light roasted malts. Taste is lightly sweet up front followed by a very lightly bitter finish. Mostly toasted malts and some light hints of nut. Some earthiness. Has a lightly creamy texture. Medium bodied beer with average carbonation. Longer smooth finish. Over all a great porter, one of the best I have tried in the style.

Really nice thick and flavorful. Cocoa and barley malts roasted nutty good. High on the last of what they do right. Dark thick black. Tap

This brew pours dark brown with a full head that produces plenty of lacing. It has a chocolate aroma. It has a sweet chocolate aroma with some coffee highlights that produces a moderately bitter finish.

Draft. Rich, caramel hoppy aroma. Slightly below average carbonation. Deep, dark brown color. Slightly sweet, tasty chocolate and coffee flavors. Smooth finish. Very nice example of a porter.

ryanscourt (1360) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Dark toasty flavors. Lighter body but doesn't tempt the boundaries of stout too much.

grundsow (126) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Not bad, really. Roasted and bitter. Rich, smooth and full-flavored. Something a little bit off though, can’t quite put my finger on it. Good beer though.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear brown with a small brown head. The aroma has bitter coffee, roasted malt, faint dark chocolate. The taste has a nice dark chocolate, slight bitterness from the roasted malt. Very nice.

BiddleBrau (1153) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pours like a Coke, visible carbonation, brown head. Cocoa nose, hint of sweetness. On the maltier side, thinner palate, nice finish (hint of alcohol) with nothing harsh lingering. Go Mountain Hawks!!

Bittersweet chocolate and a little bit of coffee, definite roast as well. Slightly bitter and carbonated. Chocolate is everywhere in this beer. Mouthfeel is bubbly. Roasted malt and more chocolate.
