Sampled from a 12 oz. can at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Poured a clear brown with a beige head. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, and slightly nutty. Average carbonation, medium body. Standard fare porter, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing

Dark dark brown with a smallish tan head and modest lace. Aromas of dark malts and notes of coffee and earth. Flavors follow with chocolate malts, dark fruit, milky sweetness and coffee beans. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, minimal carbonation and a lingering milk chocolate in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown beer with a thick foamy root beer head. Rather faint nose of cream soda, vanilla, and brown sugar without the deep roasted aromas usually found in this style. The flavor is also light, but a bit richer than the aroma, with some milk chocolate, toffee, and chai finished with a slight bitterness. Really light bodied and flavored for a porter, but pleasant enough.

Aroma is dark malts and notes of coffee and slight earthiness. The flavor is dark malts, fruit, mild sweetness and a mix of tart and acidic in the finish.

Beer of month club. Pours a dark brown with a whitish head. Nose is roasted malt. Taste has a nutty quality to it - almost a cross between a brown ale and a porter. Also had the roasted malts, a touch of chocolate. Pretty light and easy to drink for a porter.

Above-average porter. No real aroma. Nice dark brown color but I think the feel was too light and watery. Good bold roasted and earthy flavor, which saved it.

Acquired on a recent trip to Midland, Tx. Pours a ruby brown in the glass. Wonderful aroma of Cocoa Puffs or Cocoa Pebbles with a hint of coffee thrown in as well. Clean taste of light roasted mocha coffee followed by a pleasant bitter coffee aftertaste. Overall, a nice easy drinking porter.

Did not care for this one at all. Way too carbonated. You can taste some of the chocolate roasted flavor. This brew leaves a lot to be desired.

Nice and toasty porter with plenty if hops which I was not expecting. I would definitely look for it again though not necessarily as a porter. Everyone I want in a porter... Plus the hops.
