rondphoto (2600) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 31, 2015
bottle @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Nearly opaque brown/black with a solid tan head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is mildly roasted malt with chocolate and earthy coffee that moves gracefully through the palate to a finish that only needs a modicum of hops for balance. An easy to drink Porter, full-bodied and rich.

demannu (110) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Overall a solid simple but well executed porter. Nothing really over the top, just an enjoyable and easy to drink beer. Sweet and toasty, well balanced. Slight lingering bitterness. Nice experience but there are definitely better porters out there.
