Very dark brown with a tiny tan head. Aroma is mild coffee and cocoa . Taste is roasted sweet malt some dried fruit and a little dark chocolate. Decent Porter, but not a great one.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2014
Sampler pour on tap at the brewery (Lyons, IL). Pours a firmer hazy brownish hue, darker body with gentle brownish glow. Frothy light brown head atop stays as a nice filmy layer, sticks around and laces well. Aromas are touches of cocoa and toast, gentle roastiness and touches of earth. Brown malt is earthy, toffee and caramel, some gentle dry earthy hops show some earth, a touch of fruity flavors. Initial is medium bodied, a decent toasty and carmelized feel, brown malt, cocoa and gentle dryness. A decent hop character latches on with gentle toffee and toast, firm carmelized and biscuity feel. A bit more dry, toasty as we hit the corner, the hop character shows a bit of dry and bitter appeal, touch of fruit, faint orange. Touches of coffee roast, biscuit and toast. Some dryness, lingering roasty character in a sufficient amount. Touch of fruity hop appeal on the nose comes in a bit stronger. Backend and finish show carmelized and biscuity malt, some cocoa and gentle coffee taper out, a bit dry, bitter and roasty. Well put together, the body never gets too big instead making this pretty easy to put back. Nice stuff, fairly complex, flows well. Perhaps a touch thin but I don’t think that detracts at all and I actually enjoy it becauuse it makes it a bit easier to drink it in a session-like form. Nice.

Draft pour at DryHop. Malty creamy coffee notes. Jet black with sticky frothy brown head. Not much aroma. Dry. Thick pallet. Very tasty porter

jstraw (1929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Draft at Jerry’s. Black with whispy, beige head, minimal lacing / Light nose of roast grain, coffee, chocolate / Light to medium body, soft carbonation, a touch thin, but otherwise good balance and lightly bitter finish / Mellow, soft flavors of roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate, caramel, note of dark fruit / An easy drinking, light porter, not to be taken very seriously but agree with previous comment that nicely sessionable.

tmoreau (2470) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2013
On tap at the brewery’s tap room bar showing an opaque, black/brown color, with a creamy layer of tan head foam, and sheet-like cling to the lacing. The nose was roasted, mocha notes, with the chocolate showing a little more dominance over the coffee, caramel, and a smooth malt/light grain scent. Medium+ bodied, with moderate hop bitterness, some creaminess to the mouthfeel, and a pleasant, non-biting astringency that continued into the finish. Spot on representation of the style, not necessarily warming to me, but flavorful, and actually quite sessionable.
