crajun (993) - , Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2013
great aroma; roasted malts and some very nice dark chocolate in the back of aroma. great dark pour. Taste is a let down due to semi bitter finish?? palate is on thin side for porter.

DialSquare (2906) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2013
12oz pour from Andersons in Sylvania. Deep brown pour with minimal head. Aroma is roasty malt, chocolate, little coffee. Tastes are chocolaty and nutty with a hint of smoke. Slick palate, low carbonation. Well rounded, but the texture is a bit of a letdown for me.
