alobar (2875) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Pours cola brown with a thin white head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and hint of roasted malt and smoke. Creamy body with roasted malt, coffee, chocolate flavor with a hint of smoke at the back end. Nice beer!

radio_nowhere (915) - Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle into English pint glass, very dark brown with tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, slight dark fruit and smoke. Taste brings out prominent chocolate notes and some nuttiness. Medium body, light carbonation, dry with some lingering roast on the finish. Like the coffee aroma to chocolate taste transition, good porter.

This is simply the best porter I've very tasted. Delicious. Smoky. Smooth.

JFGrind (1860) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Porter is a style of beer that is drinkable if it’s just average or excellent. Lucky 7 delivers the flavors of dark roasted malts and a light bitterness. Greatness eludes this porter.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2013
12oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Black burgundy, with a foamy beige head. Coffee chocolate aroma, a little odd, pungent. Mild, easing going, respectable enough Porter. Easy doughy chocolate, caramel flavored body. Watery black malt notes, a touch of amber malt in there too maybe. Smooth and sessionable.

jefcon (1420) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Nice hop presence on this dark porter with ruby edges. Coffee, chicory, toast, a little pine sap and a little syrup. Full and long, but a tiny bit papery on the palate. Nice low alcohol makes this a cool porter.

strongpieman (1539) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown, thin tan head, aroma has lots of coffee and roasted notes. Medium body, carbonation. Average porter.

Sample pour at the brewery, nice roasty porter, a little thin but nice and drinkable.

Rustyham (1732) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Dark color, translucent, and a bit reddish. Aroma is very good, sweet cuban coffee and caramel. Flaovr is a very roasty espresso like burnt character. Lots of ash and bitterness in the flavor. Light though, palate is cool and witha bitter aftertaste.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a deep chestnut, appearing an opaque black in the glass. The head is short, thin and short lived. The head settles into a very thin ring with almost nothing on the surface.
Aroma: The aroma is a mix of sweet cocoa, hints of roast, fig, and smoke. The aroma has good strength, but I don’t enjoy the blend.
Taste: The flavor is of dried figs throughout, very prominent with a touch of roast towards the end with a lightly smoked finish that’s semi-dry with a lingering fig.
Palate: The body is a bit watery in feel, carbonation is light to moderate.
Overall: This porter isn’t really doing it for me. Too much fruit for my liking and too watery of a body.
