Bottle - pours jet black with so much foam that I had to wait to pour the rest in the glass. I did detect a a chocolate and smoke flavor but for the most part this brew just wasn’t all that appealing. The mouthfeel seemed really thin as well. Drinkable but it won’t be on my want list again.

Nice malt, coffee, a hint of chocolate and smoke upon the first taste. The appearance is nice and dark for a porter. It has a nice dry lingering finish.

zizzybalubba (1506) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark brown cola-like pour. Roasted malt aroma of chocolate, espresso, and light smoke. Taste features roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and faint bitter charred malt with just a touch of floral hops on the finish. Medium bodied. This is nicely done porter.

SlovakSniper (3371) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
Je le verse et il ressemble bien à un porter. Je ne vois pas tant de mousse dans mon verre. Un anneau, sans aucun doute. Le nez propose une céréale rôtie, de la vanille et du chocolat. Le goût est corsé, comme du café, assez bien rôti, un peu terreux avec une pointe de fumée ou de brûlure. La vanille est absente ou vraisemblablement remplacée par un fruit noir. Ce porter a une structure plus corpulente que la plupart de ses frères. La texture est en petite crème. L’arrière-goût est bien sec avec une amertume bien prolongée et même fruitée.

MadRobin (2075) - Silver Spring, USA - NOV 10, 2014
On tap at the Evolution Public House in Salisbury, MD. Opaque, near black with a thin khaki head that did not linger more than a minute and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, prunes, smokey coffee and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, blackberry, roasted malt, roasted coffee, plums and a touch of smokiness. Medium body and high/medium carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

katrinaez (127) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Not bad but not one of the better porters out there. Had bottled. Decent color. A little too light in the flavor. Too heavily carbonated.

Goodgrief (1813) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - OCT 28, 2014
On tap at Two Stones Wilmington. Dark pour with ruby highlights. Almost no head. Chocolate syrup and roast flavors. Slightly metallic tasting. Not all that tasty, honestly.

Westchesterco (1113) - mclean, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2014
From notes: On draft at the public house Otis dark brown with no head. The aroma is coffee and the taste is strong and bitter with coffee that lingers on the palate
