Draught at the brewpub. Roasty, coffee nose, wood, rather stout-like roastiness. Dark brown and lacy. Light body. Very roasty, with coffee. Decent and easy drinking.

1/6/14. 12oz bottle thanks to JBVatkeens! Go Noles! Black pour with a small khaki head that fades to a frothy ring and doesn’t lace. Nice aroma, creamy chocolate, light roast, mild coffee, some bready maltiness - really digging it. Good but somewhat disappointing flavor. Light coffee, cream, and chocolate, a little dusty, a hint of metal, too watery in taste. Surprisingly nice thick, slick mouthfeel, despite the flavor. Enjoyed this one, all in all.

Good roasted chocolate aroma. Dark brown appearance with a nice head and lacing. Flavor was of sweet chocolate malt and coffee. Sorta thick, with slight bitterness at end.

Growler at a work picnic. I liked it. Rich, robust, smoky, roasted notes. A very full bodied porter, though with cream in the name, I expected a creamier feel to it. Nice.
