joet (2164) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Mid size beer with a lot of character. Very dark brown liquid tan foam. Dark roasted coffee aromas and fruity pepper, chile flavors. Easy non bitter finish some viney hop character, herbal. Very interesting and probably versatile with food, holding up to richer roasted flavors and fine with desserts too.

Served on draft at Thirsty Monk South. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and faint caramel. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Dark brown, decent head. Aroma of roasted coffee with flavors of chocolate, coffee, and toffee. Seems to hide the coffee well since Porter often carries flavors similar to coffee and chocolate.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2011
bottle from justin 1/31/11. typical porter color with a small tan head. the aroma is full on buttery coffee beans... mixed with roast, ashiness and pepper-like vegetals. the flavor is the same but with added notes of choco, lactose and a touch of sourness on the finish. the mouth feel is on the thin side. 6/3/6/2.5/14/3.15

arminjewell (6159) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Pours dark brownish black with tan head, aroma brings notes of coffee, roast, some chocolate, dark fruit, some slight toffee as well. Taste is nice coffee forward roast, with some sweet chocolate, toffee and dark fruit notes, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty nice brew.

thirdeye11 (5537) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2011
(12oz bottle thanks to Dixonian) rich ruby/brown color with thick dark tan head. Nose of sweet coffee, cream, fresh beans, amaretto. Smells awesome! Taste disappoints though. Watery coffee, cracker, dry, a bit creamy, and nutty. Creamy body with an old coffee linger. Had potential to be an awesome beer upon smelling, but the taste just didn’t match.
