Am I drinking a chocolate cigarette? I like it. Rich thick dark burnt caramel tones. Cabin in the woods with a dog fire and a hand log.

jgb9348 (4925) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Deep dark brown coloured body with a super thick, five centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of nuts, earth, caramel and a bit of funk - cardboard, too. Light to Medium-bodied; Very earthy, roasty malt flavours with a caramelised sugar flavour, some light peat, and even a bit of metal noticeable. Aftertaste is quite strong with deeply roasted malt, some nuts, burnt sugars and a lot of bitterness at the end. Overall, a strong and relatively robust porter with some good complexity and nice depth. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Liqours in Washington, DC on 28-October-2011 for US$2.29 sampled at home in Washington on 07-October-2012.

BrooHa (120) - New York, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Pours dark with minimal, quickly dissipating head. Looks like a porter. Nothing overwhelmingly bad about the appearance but it as it should be. Same for aroma. Roasty, hints of chocolate. Tastes pretty good with dry, choclately aftertaste but nothing outstanding. A good beer but probably would not preferentially seek it out.

Taste like coffee. Dark color. Bought it in Ocean City, Md. Goes down easy. Initial smell a little sour.

dmac (4349) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2012
12 oz bottle from a 6pack purchased in Rehobeth. Poured with the tell tale sign if an infection, 90% big beige foamy head and 10% super dark chocolate brown. Aroma of used band-aids, cola, hint of soy sauce, dusty chocolate, dark rotting cherries. The body is super fizzy, sort of like seltzer on steroids, medium density and the aftertaste is all carbonation fizz. Flavor held in there for now and seems to be brown bread, chocolate, hint of lemon citrus. Three sips for a tick and the rest down the drain, won’t be buying any EVolution 6packs anytime soon.

Bottle 355ml. Pour: Xtreme gushing (half bottle). Dark brown, low beige head. Aroma is of malt, caramel. Taste is of roasted malt, acidity. Overall: Infected. Unpleasant acidity.

Bottle (12 oz). Thanks to TheCPJ for this one. More than half of the beer went out when we opened it. Brown beer with a tiny beige head and some lacing. Aroma is soft with caramel and malt. Taste of roasted malt and caramel. Bad acidic mouthfeel. Maybe this one was infected?

Nice, frothy head. Pronounced chocolate, but not too sweet. Quite a pleasant porter. Certainly worth a try.

Bottle from liquor outlet - totally forgot to rate this when I had it on Wednesday, anyway, it was chocolate and coffee. Solid?
