(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.

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 (3051) - 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 (3763) - 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 (1987) - 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.

Bottle at Bobs super famous and obsequious world’s best rib joint/sportsbar/ clothesline and junk yard in Ocean City Maryland. (141st street). Well lemme tell yah, the boys and I arrived for the hack golf weekend in style and fell upon the closest bar with an open kitchen late this past Friday eve. I fully assumed that the best I could possibly do was going to be Blue Moon or Yuengling Lager. Yeah, high hopes...for the eternal pessimist. As the group that I was with drooled over the menu, I settled for a Blue moon belgian ale. Not horrible considering they had four types of BMC light beers on tap too. The barmaid asked me "why the long face?" I replied that I was not a horse. She giggled, and said come on smile you’re at the shore....lighten up. I told her I wished they had some better beers on tap. She said she had some local brews in bottles.. I asked if any were NOT DFH since we had to drive thru the Lewes DE speed trap/ gauntlet of town clowns on Rt One to get here, I realy wasnt in the mood for DFH extraneous hoo hah. She said yup, "close your eyes" I said OK. She said ok, you can look. I opened my eyes and before me sat a bottle of Lucky Seven.....with a frozen mason jar next to it. I smiled and requested an unfrozen mason jar. I was labeled " Mr. high maintenance" for the rest of the evening. This incidentally consisnted of three more of them. Body is up fron a bit on the light side but builds to a moderate chocolate body that then turns into a very pleasant dry bacon smoke with some chicory. A nice tart finish. A pleasant find.

Bottle: Black with a tan head, rich coffee nose and burnt malts, flavor starts off as roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate, finished light as it warmed. Pretty good.
