Dark brown appearance. Malty, with a chocolatey palate and a hint of coffee? Good, while not being overly complex or pretentious.

onceblind (7492) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Clear black hue with a thin and sticky light beige head. The nose has some earthy caramel and some biscuity chocolate. The flavor is much the same, soft and medium bodied. Light caramel and light biscuity tones with a very light and semi-dry chocolaty tones. Meh.

shadey (2079) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2013
On tap as part of sampler. Dark amber color with minimal head. Lightly chocolaty and lightly bitter. This whole beer strikes me as a little thin and watery from appearance to finish. Perhaps they were trying to be truer to style, but I prefer the Americanized version of this beer.

musinj6 (500) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Pours dark molasses brown. Moderate head moderate lacing. Prominent dark chocolate and espresso combination that is a great balance of sweet and bitter. Mild carbonation and medium body. Long finish of mild bitter hops and roasted malt. This is one of their best beers.

seymour (1897) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 10, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2015 Tasted on tap at Nashville brewpub in standard pint glass. Opaque dark brown color with creamy beige head. Some retention and lace. Bready, nutty, hints of dark coffee and chocolate. Conservative hops bitterness, very little in aroma. Fruity ale yeast esters. Medium carbonation, crisp dry finish. Satisfying, true-to-style porter, but otherwise unmemorable.

Strykzone (6758) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Sampled at Bosco’s Squared in Memphis. Dark brown with a bit of red. Big roasted notes and a well hopped porter. This brewery seems to like well hopped beers. Decent chocolate and coffee. Those hops make this a different take on a classic style. Nice.
