Dark cola color. An oat and malt taste. Sweet, but not in a grocery store candy bar way. Almost a cold leftover coffee aftertaste. Mostly bitter up front with nothing in the middle or end.

Had in Dallas @ Humperdinks as the Humperdinks brand .. . Medium dark brown, very light foam .. no lacing .. . low smell of tart burnt molasses .. . thin, and only lightly roasty .. . Disorder is right... . Then came the rocks -- jagged rocks, hitting me with their jags.

Very dark pour with a chocolate coffee aroma. Taste adds some caramel to the mix. It’s too much for me.

Thin slightlly peaty porter, resembles more of an Irish dry stout in body and taste.

On tap in Dallas. This might be one of the worst porters that I've ever had. A little coffee and cocoa aroma. Deep, clear cola brown. Tangy, flat and scorched. Pitiful, watery porter.

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.

Indy location; draft, no head, only slight aroma of possilbly burnt coffee, flat, watery, couldn’t even finish this one. On a positive note, the service was great; shame the porter was a disappointment.

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.
