Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate, coffee. Pours a very dark brown with large mostly lasting tan head and good lacing. Chocolate, roasted malt, notes of coffee. Bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall this is a very enjoyable dry porter with loads of taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. 4.0 A: Black color. Three fingers of pillowy beige head. Retention is a little better than average and a moderate amount of lacing is left. 2.0 S: Unfathomly dry. Bone fucking dry. Roastiness and a weird tangy twanginess. Needs a bit less attenuation. Like cocoa powder. Not a fan. 3.0 T: Roasty and grainy. Dry, but reasonably dry this time. Light cocoa powder again and a touch of caramel. Not great, but not horrid. Pretty much average. 4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Quite creamy for what it is. Good here. 3.0 D: Average, drinkable, worth a try but not a rebuy. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-20-2012 21:45:50

superspak (2203) - Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2012
22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy dark reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some decent spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, coffee, biscuit, citrus, and herbal hops. Some pretty standard porter aromas with decent strength and balance. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, biscuit, herbal, coffee, and citrus. A decent amount of herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, biscuit, caramel, and citrus on the finish for a bit. Nice evenly balanced blend of roasted and hop flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Very easy and smooth to drink; with almost no alcohol warming present on the finish. Overall this is a nice and straightforward porter. Nice balance of flavors and quite enjoyable.
