ChristianHR (182) - DENMARK - APR 6, 2014
Served from tap. Has a light aroma of roasted malts. The color is dark brown with a fading white head. Tastes of roasted malts, caramel and a little coffee. Though it is a bit watery.

TheAlum (5621) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2009
12 oz bottle thrown in as an extra by TheEpeeist in our recent trade. Pours a nice very dark brown with ruby notes on the edges, lightly hazed, with moderate khaki colored head that laces a bit. Aromas are some subtle roasted malts, light cocoa, a touch of floral hoppiness, and very light coffee. Initial is medium bodied, with a sweetness that involves coffee, roated malts, light cocoa, and some sugary sweetness that feels like carmel and toffee. Very light hops with barely a bitterness on the backend (And it might be more from the coffee.). Medium bodied, but it just feels a little thin maybe because of the interesting sweeter profile it has, without much hop balancing. Finishes with the sweetness and malty aftertaste. This beer just tastes different.. but there is nothing wrong with it. Either a sourness or a funny malt profile (fruits?) that makes it just feel different. Ok.

Braudog (5601) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 18, 2007
On draft at the brewery. Dark enough to pass the visual ID test as a porter. The aroma, too, is lightly roasty and bitter. The first swallow is a bit thinner than hoped for with just a bit of chalky roastiness to it. As I settle into it, it mellows more and more with an overarching sweetness accented only slightly by a bitter chocolate tinge. (#2710, 2/16/2007)

hopscotch (8915) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Draft... Dark caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma and flavor are pleasant swirls of chocolate, coffee and smoke. Good balance of malt, tannins and hops. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, smoky finish.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Sampled at OD. Pours dark brown (actually clear dark red when held up to light) with an off-white head. Pleasant aroma of roastiness and some herbal hops. Very easy to drink yet tasty; notes of chocolate, light coffee, sweet caramel and pleasant roastiness. Well-balanced. Medium bodied with lively yet fine-beaded carbonation. A good drinkin’ beer.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
TheBeerLover (1025) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 27, 2006
Dominion Porter pours to any ebony black color with a thick, creamy white head, and a soft to moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer in very inviting with lots of big aromas of sweet malt, chocolate, and mild roasted coffee aroma. The palate is soft and full with lots of big sweet malty, dark chocolate, and coffee flavors on the tongue, with a nice back drop of black currant estery/fruit flavors. Dominion Porter finishes with more flavors of chocolate, coffee and currant up front, then ends with a slightly sour and bitter finish that balances out the sweet flavors of this beer.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 4, 2004
In the bottle. Black in color with a small bubbled brown head. Roasted aroma. Sweet and chocolate in taste. Enough body to support the roasted coffee flavor, but not a chewy mouth coating malt content. Finishes quite hoppy.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Deep ruby/black color with a medium fine particled light brow head. Aroma is roasted malt a hint of coffee. THe flavor is more of the same with a bit more sweetness and a fairly large wallop of hops towards the end. Body is medium and smooth. A very enjoyable brew.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Dark, slightly red. Nose has coffee, a bit of creamy roast akin to chocolate ice cream. Flavor is smoky, roast, chocolate and coffee mix. A bit subtly fruity with a hoppy finish, some good bitterness. Smooth and drinkable.
