Tmoney99 (10954) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Draft sample at Boscos Memphis. Poured a clear brown color with an average creamy off-white head that was mostly lasting and produced good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee malt and chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted coffee sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Sold drinkable brew.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2003
From a sampler: Pours a dark brown (almost opaque) color with a medium beige head and decent lacing. Strong roasted coffee aroma, along with a little chocolate. Medium body, containing a nice blend of coffee, hops and chocolate flavors. The rich and somewhat bitter coffee-tasting finish is very nice, and I don't even like coffee. Good stuff.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2003
On tap in Nashville - Very dark brown, nearly black hue. Large light brown head that produces an excellent lace. Medium to full-bodied. Toasted malt with nutty, dark chocolate, and strong coffee hints. Hint of smoke too. Chocolate heavy sweetness well balanced with bitter undertones. Oily and soft mouthfeel. A good version of porter, similar to Fullers but aroma not as distinct or aftertaste as long. Recommended if in area.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Tasted on tap at Nashville Brewpub. This porter pours a dark brown color. Small sized beige head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee with some roasted malt. A medium bodied porter. Malts are slightly roasty and chocolate. Hops are floral and earthy. Nice chocolate flavors. Nice balance. Would make a nice session porter. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

decaturstevo (5198) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2007
A slight dark brown almost black pour with a gooey clinging lacing. An aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. A decent hops aroma for a porter. Asweet burnt coffee flavor dominates wth a very good bitter finish. A fizzy finish and a tad thin for a porter. Overall o good beer just barely off.

The body was a very dark ruby that was almost brown. The aroma was pears with perfume and a hint of chocolate. The taste was chocolate with some tobacco and coffee. There was an unexpected bitter finish. Thin bodied.
