The appearance is dark dark brown, nearly black. Big, pimply, rocky head. Tan rings of lace. Looks sloshy and not stagnant. Dark, roasted mocha/coffee aromas. Raisin and dark grape. Unusual sweet candy flavor; really different and delicious. The taste is smooth mocha and bittersweet cocoa. The sweetness manifests itself as a cherry, grape and dark raisin. Some sour cherry/grape too. Goes from bitter to sweet-n-sour. The feel is chewy and creamy. Pretty smooth actually, for a porter. It’s a smooth ans sweetish porter. I like it a lot. Raisin + mocha + breakfast blend coffee.

A little watery on the palate. Some roast and a little chocolate without being huge on anything. Finishes with light bitterness. Soft overall feel. Nothing memorable. Tap at DC Beer festival.

Davhgbrew (886) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2013
UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Dark brown, chocolate nose. Creamy palate with big chocolate flavor throughout. Med bodied and chocolate dominates this brew. Nice body and flavor throughout and finish is dry. Description says it has a smoky flavor as well, but I don?t get it...just cocoa. Orig rate 11/26/13..3.0. Had off draft at field house location. Creamy mouthfeel, mostly dark slight roast malt character. Has a sweet dark chocolate aspect. Medium full bodied, finish has a drying sensation. Slight cream like undertones. Pronounced hop bitterness and creamy chocolate/coffee flavors persist. This beer is very fresh tasting, awesome this go round.

Smells like sweetened trash. Tastes so strange. Not like a porter at all. Cereal, basil, cooked vegetables. No.

monk191 (722) - California, USA - JUL 18, 2013
A pretty average porter. Pours a muddy brown with a light tan head. Smells good, like vanilla and coffee. Taste is basic porter, lots of coffee, and a slightly weird aftertaste. Had on tap at the brewpup. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draft. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted dark malt, smoke and sweet chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Hazy brown color with tan lacing. Mild roasted aroma. Slightly smoky on palate. Not too heavy of a body. Good for the style.

maekchu (1756) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 4, 2013
Bomber. Notes from tasting session. Mild chocolate nose. A bit of chocolate on mid-palate. Some roast, burnt flavors grow on the finish and lasts. Very smooth and well balanced stuff.

On tap at Elysian Brewhouse, Seattle. Normal dark color. Boring and uninspiring aroma/taste...
