PorterPounder (6901) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Dark brown fading to deep purple pour with a light but sticky khaki colored head. Fresh aroma with some liqueur accents and a hint of espresso. Flavor is robust with lots of espresso, some licorice, a bit of dark chocolate and some faint fruitiness - plums come to mind. Mouthfeel is nice and thick. Nice one watch the Orange Bowl with.

Thanks to Daknole for this gem! Opaque black pour that has a small tight tan head. Rich roast malt aroma - cocoa powder, coffee, smoke. The flavor is rich and sweet. Roasty bitterness. No hops here; all roast malts. Very solid Porter.

Aurelius (4918) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2011
A pungent grassy, earthy roast aroma loaded with West coast hops. Good label, almost opaque black-brown, with a two-tone tan head. Sweet and tarry, herbal, strongly bitter, dark cocoa, slightly creosotic. Medium heavy body. Long-lasting hop bitterness and semisweet chocolate in the aftertaste. Another ballsy brew from Cigar City. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of ericandersnavy) clear rich brown copper color, few bubbles. Nose of fresh espresso, tobacco, dark chocolate, and fudge. Taste of tobacco, cedar, fudge, herbal and a bit medicinal. Nice thick oily body very woody.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - DEC 26, 2010
12oz bottle. There is some chocolate and roast in the aroma but it is mostly hops, spicy, somewhat citrusy. The color is dark red, nearly brown with a mocha colored head. There is some nice maltiness followed by dark chocolate, roast and earthy, spicy and bright, citrus-like hops. Long, lingering bitter finish with a hint of clean alcohol. Quite possibly one of the more bitter and hoppy porters I have ever had.

Tap at BT. Pours a deep dark brown with a nice long lasting tan head. Aroma is green minty and piny American hops, good coffee, chocolate, roast, nuts, and licorice stick as well. Flavor is tobacco leaf, toasty, chocolate, mineral,tootsie roll, grass, pine, mint, citrus hops, good balance, and very drinkable. I liked this a lot!

12 ounce thanks to smith4498. Very roasty porter. Lots of chocolate in there. Taste of eating a chocolate bar lingers in your mouth a bit after drinking. Rich. Not too thick or intense of a body. Very nice.

The aroma is roasty, chocolate, cream. Like chocolate milk. The apperance is a dark brown, dark tan head. The flavor is roasty, then making way for chocolate. The finish is a pine hop and roasty bitterness. Medium in body. Good all around.

12oz Bottle From Kingdom Liquors in Brandon,FL. Pours a nice dark brown body with a small head. Smells of smokey malts, coffee and a touch of chocolate. Great coffee and roasted malt flavor with a nice close of hoppy bitterness. Overall very good for the style.
