wlajwl (4053) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2012
Aroma is dark grains and some grittiness, while the appearance is paler than most porters. The flavor is fruit, caramel malts and had a mild soapy texture. Didn’t really care for this.

Cybercat (3489) - Georgia, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Comes out of the tap a dark, reddish, barely transparent brown with a fairly thick, fine-bubbled, light tan head. Aroma has a strong horehound overtone and hints of caramel and coffee. Sumptuous flavor has horehound, caramel, semi-sweet chocolate and roast coffee notes. Texture is fairly thick and fizzy, leaving a smoky and slightly candy-sweet finish. Look for it.

Draft at the brewpub. It poured a dark brown color with a beige head. The aroma was of chocolate, roasty malts, and nuts. The flavor was light roasty malt, coffee hints, and a somewhat watery chocolate finish.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Pours dark brown with deep ruby highlights. Head is frothy and fades quickly to a mild film of a head. Nose provides coffee, sweet malts, toasted caramels, and dark bread. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, toasted malts, earthy hop flavors,caramel malts and an element of smoke definitely involved. Full flavored and body for the low abv. Really nice beer this one thanks to Aaron at big red.
