MattShizzle (542) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle - from Ale in the Mail. Very dark - nearly opaque. Aroma is mostly roasty but with some malt and hops. Very good - good blend of roastiness, hops and malt. Good example of a porter.

"Big roasted malts and just a touch of hops. Maybe a little Smoke and coffee too. Aroma and taste just about identical. Dry and thin. Good but not great."

Bottle pour opaque dark brown with violet hues. Nose light roast, fall fruits, and some mineral. Taste lighter flavors for style, light roast, chocolate. Mid palate reasonable bitter that lasts until late. Roasty finish doesnít show up until very late.

MrBunn (2507) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle with much thanks to coyotehunter. Pours a deep brown with reddish highlights and a dense tan head that dies down to lacing and a thin later of suds fairly quickly. Aromas are sugary... kind of brown sugar and chocolate. Flavor is OK, but nothing great. Has a bit of a flabby sugariness to it and the dark edges are a little astringent, but itís a serviceable porter.

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Ruby brown color with light tan head. Chocolate malt, medium roast malt, mild coffee aromas. Medium body. Nice chocolate, nutty, dry roast, coffee, pale malt flavors____solid porter.

jake65 (2725) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle: Deep chestnut brown pour with a small tan head. Mild nose is roast and cocoa, continuing into the taste. The English porter influence is subtle and appreciated; good roast, cocoa, and a faint bittersweet to go along with a small amount of sour. Clean finish, but it does border on being chalky. Overall nicely done.

fiveacestx (634) - Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle - Pours black with a khaki head. Has a sour aroma and...while Iíve never consumed bong water, this beer has a bit of a marijuana aroma and taste. A little malty and a medium mouthfeel.

jackl (4920) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle from Guess Who? Brown pour with a small off-white head. Chocolate malt. Dark roasted malts. A touch of vanilla, rootbeer float. Sweet brown sugar flavor with a slightly chalky finish. Roasted malt, mild bitterness. Nicely balanced. Nothing flashy, but decent.

warhawk91 (302) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pour is a deep dark blackish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is espresso and bitter chocolate. Taste is similar, starts out bitter with coffee and smooths out into some chocolatey sweetness and finishes pretty dry with a slight hop note. Decent porter.
