UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Nice dark color, cream color head. Rich chocolate taste but it doesn’t overpower. The flavor does not linger. Some beers leave a bitter after taste but not this one.

Had this in a sampling glass at the brewpub (and brought a growler home). Pours a dark brown color with a nice fluffy off-white head. The aroma isn’t very strong, but there is a bit of nice maltiness there. Wow, what a great taste. Extremely creamy and smooth. Drinkability and mouthfeel are top notch. Has a slight coffee and malty flavor. Some creamy chocolate there as well. Just wow. Best porter I’ve ever had.

Really dark and smooth, this one goes down very easy. Little head and tastes like coffee.

Draft: this is a beautiful beer! Pretty much Guinness looking, but a very roasty nose and very chocolatey flavor. Easily my favorite Cumberland beer.

Not what I expected. Black pour with creamy white head. Aroma is berries. Tast is a little chocolate and coffee. Good stuff.

Rich creamy head. Smooth roasty flavor that's slightly sweet. It's hard to find micro's that use nitrogen. Very nice!

Reminded me of the Avery Out of Bounds Stout I savored in Colorado. Rich aroma, nice nose.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 i love this beer, as black and clear as a crisp winters night, which is appropraitely enough the best time to consume this rich chocolatey delicacy. i enjoy it warmer than it is served. a rich and malty porter that is both smooth and hearty. the lacing depends on the batch and the pour. sometimes its beautiful and runs concentrically down the glass, other times ithe head fades within minutes. on tap @ cumberland brews.

On tap at the brewpub. Black with a tan head that lasts forever. The glass remains completely coated with foam lacing that more aptly resembles stucco than lace. Toasty aroma. Ridiculously smooth and easy to drink. Reddish highlights when you hold the glass up to the light. Delicious.

On tap: Pours black with a light tan head that diminishes slowly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is malty with hints of chocolate. Flavor starts sweet with a roasted dark chocolate flavor and finishes with a mild hoppy bitterness. Texture is very creamy and easy drinking. A unique and excellent porter!
