Gription79 (2282) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. This has been in the cellar for several months. Pours with a dense tan head and huge cocoa aroma. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, soft stone fruit. A nice, easy drinking porter.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - FEB 28, 2013
pours like a cola with a root beer head - aroma of molasses and slight butter - roasted malts in the flavor profile with brown sugar.

EithCubes (5000) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bomber. Nose lightly sweet, sweetness over roast, shade of sour/tart with choco and faint fruit. Pours a deep red-light brown with a foamy tan head. Taste lightly tart, medium sweetness and just enough bitterness for balance, light and gentle roast with mild chocolate, hint of browned nuts toward the back. Crisp light-medium body with a nice soft roast aftertaste, very gentle warming but alcohol wrap-up is top notch. Hops are mild but produce a nice accent. Well made and strong all around.

sfontain (811) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2013
22 oz bottle, $3.99 World Market Columbus. Clear black pour; giant rocky eggshell head becomes a large ring and can be somewhat revived with swirling; very heavy alcing. Aroma is weak; "black," nutty, roast, ash, dark chocolate, yet not much coffee. Flavor also weak; nut, roast, ash; dry finish. Velvety carbonation but a little on the thin side. Pretty lame porter.

Cybercat (3370) - Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Pours a deep sable just a flea’s eyebrow above black with a frothy and fine-bubbled tan head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma has strong woody, nutty, malty, and subtle spicy notes. Flavor has a malty underpinning and nutty, earthy, chocolate, and toffee tones, along with woody, bitter hops. Texture has average weight but plenty of fizz, leaving a woody, earthy finish. A satisfying porter.

matthewjk (924) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2012
22oz pour - As the label suggest, I would call this a lactose porter. Much of this is dairy with some complimentary dry characteristics. Good everyday type porter that is easy drinking.

pinkzambia (1505) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle: Dark brown with a tan ring head. Funky, almost moldy garbage aroma and I’ll throw in some malt balls. Super thin body and lacking in comparison to other solid porters. Coffee and charcoal trailer. Ok, but disappointing,

EdInSaltLake (652) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Cocoa and coffee roasted aroma. Dry roasty flavor, some biscuit and caramel coming through in the aftertaste. Moderate bitterness. Maybe a little astringent?
