zach8270 (3472) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2010
(bottle - 12 oz) Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Nice chocolaty aroma begins with some light roasted malts underneath. Lightly roasted malt taste at the start that moves easily into a smooth and flavorful chocolate and cocoa middle with a nice creamy finish. Light roast on the aftertaste. Really smooth.

zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Dark brown/black pour with nice beige/tan head. Arouma is coffee, vanilla beans, roast, wood and rotting fruit. Foamy, creamy with an odd fishiness. Astringent and a bit messy.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2010
12oz bottle. Large tan head atop clear brown-black body. Aroma is medium sweet, coffee, some dark chocolate, light seltzer. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee, roast, some smoke, light bittersweet chocolate, sourness. Effervescent light-medium body.

Elwood (3190) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle.
It pours a ruddy brown with a small, foamy, light tan head. The nose is on the lighter side with notes of roasted malt, smoke, and a touch of burnt caramel. The taste is watery and on the flavorless side with a bit of roastiness and burnt malt. Light body with a dull, short finish. Overall this brew is definitely less than spectacular.

obguthr (3836) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Dark roasted malt nose. Cloudy brown, thin yellow head. Tart malt flavor, finishes with smoke. Decent, but perhaps too tart.

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2010
A pretty good porter with some nice chocolate notes in aroma and flavor. Not too big for a porter, but just right. A clean and slightly better than average porter.

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - APR 26, 2010
Dark with a tan head. Nice creamy chocolate, light roasted malt, some coffee, some tobacco, vanilla, and oak. Nice body but a little rough on the carbonation. Real pleasant flavor if you are in to coffee tasting porters. Coffee bean, light chocolate, some smoke, with a touch of spice. Real nice porter.
