Aroma is chocolate and sweet on the nose. Appearance is dark brown/.black. Slightly sweet and balanced out with chocolate notes. Crisp, lightly hopped, . Reminds me more of an amber or ESB then a porter. Great with a burger, steak, or bbq..

Had this at the brewpub in Littleton CO on 06-May-2008. Nice dark color, bit of tan head. No discernable odor whatsoever. Taste was very sour and acerbic. Nasty stuff. Could be a bad batch or some that was way past its sell-by date, but if this is how it always tastes, I would NOT recommend this beer to anyone.

Had it on tap at the RAM. It was dark and had a good chocolate balance in the flavor.

Aroma, flavor... what aroma? What flavor? This didn't taste like anything at all to me, horrible porter. Didn't like either of the beers sampled from this brewery, huge disappointment.

Notes from Indy Winterfest.
Pours a nice black.
Aroma is mediocre, not much to it, some malt. Flavor is similar to aroma. Mouthfeel is normal. Overall not that great.

Deep chestnut brown in appearance with a sweet, nutty aroma. Tastes of chocolate, walnuts, molasses. Subtle hop backbone. Nice.

Deep reddish brown with a bittersweet chocolate aroma. Starts with a chocoate overtones and finish very smooth for a porter. I enjoyed this while waiting for my dessert in Dallas.

A typical porter. Opaque black body with a coarse tan head. Flavor was predominantly roasted malt bitter chocolate with a slight acidic sour taste. Overall, the flavor was too weak to be considered an above-average example of the style.

Got a growler of this from the RAM. I thought it was really good for a standard type porter. Really easy to drink, but not a lot of different flavors. That is ok though I drunk the whole jug. Simple, but good...

Maybe I don’t know what a great porter is, but this tasted good and made me happy. A little bitter, a little sweet.
