Dark in color with a ruby hue with forward notes of chocolate and caramel and light toffee notes in the aroma. Flavor has big notes of bittersweet chocolate with notes of caramel and toffee and moderate hop bitterness and more caramel and toffee and slight hints of char. A big take on a classic style.

Its back on tap and hopefully here to stay. Pours a thick brownish-black on tap with frothy tan head and moderate lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted and toasted malts, slight bitter chocolate. Taste follows with great lingering coffee flavor and slight piney back end. Really good porter that is surprisingly easy to drink for the abv.

Tap @ Liquor Express - pours pitch with a tan head, settles beautifully, like a Guinness. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, and as it warms, red fruits. Very nice!

DiarmaidBHK (4232) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Draft at Liquor Express. Pours Coca Cola brown with an inch of khaki foam. This one takes a while to settle. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Big caramel malts on the nose. Lots of creamy caramel malt on the tongue. Very quaffable and easy to drink. Finished clean. Really nice one to session. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (5164) - Georgia, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours coffee brown with a thick and rather persistent tan head. Aroma features chocolate, roast malt, caramel, toffee and subtle molasses notes, more stout-like than porter-like. Flavor delivers semi-sweet chocolate, roast malt, charred hops, toffee, caramel and molasses notes. This is YUUUUUGE! Mouthfeel offers firm, viscous body and good fizz. Barkin’ good!
