Very solid porter. Rich, roasty dark chocolate and mild sweet caramel malt backbone with bits of woodiness and coffee bean hints. Nice light floral hop component. A tad yeasty on the finish. Nice drink overall.

Roasted ash aroma, some choco, slight smokiness. Opaque with crimson edges yet maintains a light swirl. Black malts are nicely balanced with slight creamy caramel and decent hoppiness. Just a great beer. Thanks André!

Sessionable porter that’s well malted, with chocolate malts,and so quite drinkable. Hops are secondary but there. Black with moderate white head. Aroma of mild roast. Well balanced and satisfying. Medium mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2010 Bottle. Rich dark brown, almost opaque but not totally, with tan head and nice layer of foam and lace. Nose is light and clean and so are the flavors, which include mainly coffee. Decent mouthfeel and quaffable if not exciting....Re-Rate from bottle--Rich dark opaque brown with tan head. Aromas of carob, cocoa, chocolate liqueur, and Nutella. Very soft velvet palate. Sweet entry, then the middle is rich lively and fresh chocolate malts. Grows more complex with each sip. Highly drinkable.

22 oz bottle . Dark brown with a rocky tan head . Nice chocolate smell with roasted malts and nuts. Full bodied with a smooth, oily texture. The taste follows the nose with rich roasted grains and a chocolate malt sweetness. A very good porter here. 06/12/2007

On tap at brewery. Pours a dark black color with a small light brown head on top. Aroma is roasted malts with chocolate, caramel, and coffee. Flavor is chocolate and caramel. Very thin on the palate this beer unfortunately lacks a body that usually comes with a nice porter.
