mcox90 (1563) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 5, 2014
22 oz. bottle from Julio’s. Pours dark brown, almost black, with some chestnut edges. One finger tan head the leaves copious lace. Chocolate malt aroma with coffee and rye. Think drinking chocolate milk while eating a piece of pumpernickel bread. Flavor is to the sweet side of spicy, must be the rye, with a touch of coffee bitterness. Body is to the full side and creamy. Interesting porter. Unique.

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle from four seasons wine and liquor. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Has a fair amount of head retention. Leaves a shitload of lacing. A. It of chocolate roast on the nose. Leans toward bitter on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid for style.

A really smooth porter. Looks great, reasonable head. Usual roast, chocolatey flavour and eminently quaffable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Présence d’un moyen col beige mousseux et d’une large dentelle le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de torréfaction et de seigle avec une pointe chocolatée. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de torréfaction en arrière goût. (Rating #5526)

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Nicely chocolate flavors become roasty in the finish for a wealthy example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A brownish head of foam covers the blackness.
-This is on the sweet side for a Porter.
-Vanilla fruitiness is hallucinated.
-This is very close to being a dessert brew.

On tap at The Dirty Truth.

radarsock (940) - Vermont, USA - FEB 17, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 $4.70 for the 650 mL bottle purchased from Quality Liquors on the 4th. To oversized snifter, it pours an oily jet black, with which a sudsy, off-khaki head 1½ fingers in length stood. Aromas of caraway seeds, cracked wheat, melanoidin malt, fried bananas, toasted breadcrumbs, candied sugar, lactose, hay, salted caramel, and beach sand. Tastes of everything described with the addition of sourdough bread, pumpernickel, autumnal leaves, and melted wax. Certainly has this acidic note by swallow I couldn’t let escape my memory. Toasty and easily drinkable. Mmmmm.

BroSpud (1706) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2014
22oz bottle with a bottling date of 11/13. Pitch black pour with dark tan head. Lots of rye flavor in this one and it goes well with burnt malt flavors. Notes of coffee, chocolate and even licorice.

silky smooth. slight rye spice is perfectly balanced by notes of chocolate, cofee, and roasty, malty goodness. lactose sugars add a rich, velvet finish very reminiscent of milk stouts. a home run.
