I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. Ive had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

TomDecapolis (4605) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a smaller tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee. Flavor of vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. A nice roasty porter.

Two 4oz samples (one nitro, one not) from a flight. Pour is deep cola with lovely beige head (both pours), but there is fantastic lacing on the nitro. Nose is a mix between milk and dark chocolate, roasted malts, toffee, coffee, and raisins. Taste is very close to the nose and rides an almost Yoo-hoo finish. This one is very tasty and I could easily over indulge in its goodness. This is one of the better porters Ive had because of the artistic level of balance.

Deep brown/black color, tan head. Strong coffee, more like a stout... Not smooth. Medium body, finish lingers, but is nice. Solid beer, but style is a question.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2010
Tap @ DuClaw Brewpub, BWI. Nearly black, rich tan head. Nose is dark caramel & toffee, very rich/meaty cherries. Flavor is roasty, slightly milky, a bit of dark fruit. Too sweet.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Part of a 9 piece sampler at DuClaw Bowie, MD. Black brown, tan head. Aroma is molasses, anise, caramel, and smoke. Flavor is the same with chocolate and coffee. Slightly oily mouth feel with a dry bitter finish.

Holy (835) - GERMANY - SEP 6, 2010
Shared with Travlr, on draft. Typical porter aromas - chocolate and coffee. Taste follows the schedule. Typical porter flavors - good, but nothing amazing jumps out at you. A good porter.

Pours a dark dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of caramel, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is pretty delicious. I like the slightly bitter dry finish that this porter has. Mmm
