DrSilverworm (6982) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2011
22oz bottle. Almost completely opaque dark red color, minimal light tan head. Mild hop, some chocolate aroma. Mostly a bit watered down, it seems. Carbonation is prominent. Very light sweetness. Light bitter. Kind of a boring porter.

Drake (9005) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Bomber from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a dark brown color with a creamy brown head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, berries and a nutty note. The taste is roasted malts, berries, chocolate, milky note and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Well balanced. Eminently drinkable. Nice beer.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2011
pitch black with large white head. nose of chocolate and some crystal malt. solid bitterness before high crystal and chocolate malt with a bit of an astringent character. some yeast esters before a dry finish without much residual sweetness. a flavorful porter, somewhere between a brown and a robust, but the malt recipe results in a stinging malt character that makes repeated drinking challening

Tmoney99 (11095) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Moderate roasted coffee dark chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted burnt coffee flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a drinkable soft brew.

ekoerper (590) - Iowa, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Roasty aroma with a bit of chocolate. Pours black, not completely opaque, good clarity, huge tan head with great retention, a slug of foam remained throughout the drink. Flavor: mellow roast, very smooth, hints of chocolate and caramel, a good easy drinking porter. I thought the body was a bit on the thin side, very smooth and creamy on the palate though, medium carbonation.

portableparty (1961) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Pours dark brown with a kahki head that fades. Aroma light roasted malt and earthy. Taste is more toasty roasty malt with faint mild coco. Palate is slick and watery which finishes dry. Not bad!

Bottle @ home. Deep brown appearance with a sizable, brown head. Roasty, nutty, dark brown malty nose. Light espresso, nutty, toasty, dark chocolate malty flavor. Nutty, espresso aftertaste. Pretty boring.
