Pours a really rich deep brown color with a tan head. Aroma is smoke, coffee, dark chocolate, and brown sugar. Flavor is a little heavy on the smoke, but nothing major. Nice porter.

zach8270 (3502) - 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.

Elwood (3311) - 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.
