4 oz. taster at the source. Pours dark brown with an off white head. Roasty aroma with cocoa and hints of a far distant campfire. Light sweetness from the cocoa, bittered with an earth hop bite. Thinner palate than I would have liked, still, pretty darn good.

Purchased a 750 ml growler from the brewery on 9 Jan 2014, enjoyed on 11 Jan 2014. Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head and minimal lacing. Flavor and aroma is a perfect match. Rich roasted malts, hints of ash, light bittering pine, ale yeast tones. Earthy malt notes. Medium body and medium carbonation. Texture has an abundant dry roast quality. Overall, I always enjoy the brews David Sakolsky creates. This porter has exceptional flavor and is something I could drink multiple glasses of. Well done.

Black, brown edges. Espresso crema Nose is roasted coal and a bit of cedar. Chocolate overload Roasted chocolate and minor coffee bean. Tannic finish

Lukaduke (2243) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours a deep burnt umber with three fingers of thick gaseous khaki foam that laces nicely. Nose is roasted chocolate malt with some earthy woodchip and a touch of vanilla and pine. The palate follows with nice roast quality, backbone of chocolate, vanilla, malt balls, earthy spent coffee grinds... lots of carbonation scrub out the smoothness a bit. Strange bittersweet lingers mid to late palate.

radarsock (941) - Vermont, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Had on tap at the source. Pours a viscous dark brown with which a frothy, off-white ringed head balanced-beamed atop. Smells and tastes of baker’s cocoa powder, lavender, warm coffee, blackberries, and American hops. Mint, charcoal, and English yeast by swallow. Medium-bodied, but its finish was slick and watery. I can see myself ordering this again.

WillRunForBeer (725) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Taster at the source. Pours deep brown with a coffee ice cream head that clings. Aroma of dark malt, coffee, a touch of smoke. Flavor follows nose. Roasty and malty. Finish is dark coffee and unsweet vanilla. A touch metallic. This is nice, but I prefer the Ragged Neck.
