Bottle. Black with a small ok lacing beige head. Fruity and roasted nose with some very light toffee. Light/medium body with some roasted bitterness though mostly sweet. Roasted malt, chocolate, light nuts, light burnt. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Ok porter but noting spectacular. Better things can be found at the same price maybe even with a prettier label.

Aroma of a feed store with hints of dark fruit. Pours a solid black with a tan ring and no lacing. The taste is sightly sweet initially culminating in a rewarding bitter finish. Roasted malt, grain, and fruit, Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, an ok porter. However, I would have liked a fuller body.

andyhwcinc (1426) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Purchased at Evolution Wine & Spirits in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Appearance is pitch black, moderate consistency, thin off white head that rims around the glass. Aroma of molasses, rich dark chocolate, light sweetness, smells a bit soft and dessert like. Taste goes down malty, sweet, with a light bitterness, rich in chocolate, molasses, and dark fruit. It’s a nice easy drinker, very light burn, leaves a syrupy finish. Overall, good stuff.

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of licorice and maybe coconut...strange. Dark, still brown. Bitter chocolate and brown sugar taste. Papery finish follows a smooth medium bodied pull. Has some unique aspects to it, none that are outstanding however.
