phiconners (149) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Pours dark, with a small tan head. Aroma is not overpowering. Taste is smoky, a lot of flavor for a porter. It leans more to the smoky than the creamy, thicker than it appears. A very good porter.

TheJester (2216) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2015
355 mL bottle. Pours stout brown with a small, light brown head. Mild roast and chocolate milk in the nose. The roast is relatively mild in the flavour as well. Nice chocolate, though, and a hint of booze, which works, because of the solid body. And oatmealy smooth. Nice beer.

BREWMUSKCLES (2417) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2015
big body and dark malt and cocoa taste that seems a bit dry acrid and with licorice. the foundation is superb and you can do anything with it. intense and satisfying you can fall over yourself describing how they do stout and porter right from the get go.

StueyD (1498) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
A pitch black beer with a thick dark tan coloured head. A strong roasted malt aroma, nutty and dark chocolate, plus hints of fruit and smoke. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is very bitter sweet. Roasted malt flavours, nutty and bitter dark chocolate, plus a smokiness. This is followed by a sweeter fruity flavour, red fruit and candied fruit that brings on a late zestiness. Bottle from Beers of Europe.
