COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This craft-brewed porter is made in very small batches right here on Nantucket. It is unfiltered and bottle-conditioned to ensure the freshest possible taste. Our porter is made with a blend of roasted barley, black patent, and chocolate malt for a smooth, chocolatey finish that goes famously well with oysters. Serve slightly chilled.

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2011
A nice, if simple, imperial porter. Nose of chocolates and sweet malts. Taste of chocolate, very little malt, very little hops. Almost seems like a great chocolate soda. Fairly simple flavor profile, easy to drink. Fairly simple smooth palate, like a porter; again easy to drink. Almost black, huge brown head.

Opaque, some lace. Light body, smooth and delicate mouthfeel and flavor, little carbonation, rather flat, Mildly bitter, dry, acidity not in evidence and perhaps lacking, Definite but not overpowering roast flavors, Pleasant but not exciting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cisco redeemed themselves a little from that trainwreck saison with a well crafted delightfully charming porter. Great chocolate notes with light toastienss and some fruity malty notes. Drinkability is great and taste is still full and complex.

Beerathon (1075) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Toasty malts of chocolate come through with bitter coffee flavors. A bit of smoke in the nose and taste. Huge light brown head (reminded me of a root beer float foam) and beer itself is practically black in color. A bit oily mouth feel, but still very pleasing brew.

DialSquare (2505) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle from Greens in Atlanta. Brown pour with inch or so light brown head that sticks around. Malty aroma with dark fruit and cocoa. Tastes are the same with coffee and herbal hoppiness. Thin palate makes it easy drinking. Fair enough.
