Dark brown w/ quickly dissipating tan head. Sweet aroma of chocolate and vanilla, slight citrus notes. Taste is more complex...vanilla, citrus, apples, pale malts, and maybe some coffee...Has a cider taste to it. Thin body and lots of carbonation. Too sweet for me. Very dry. Interesting "porter" nonetheless.

Tap @ brewery. Pours deep, dark brown with thin, creamy beige head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, and light smoke. Flavor is malt dominate with light hops and esters; dry finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Received in trade from mdaschaf, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a solid dark brown bordering on black with a good sized off white head that displays moderate retention and lace. Smells of light chocolate and brown sugar mostly. Has hints of earth and a slight mineral edge to it. Taste is mostly caramel and brown sugar with only a tease of chocolate in it. There’s a hint of oxidation mixed in here with a hint of tart fruitiness and bits of earth and mineral water. Beautiful creamy silky smooth mouthfeel, moderate level of carbonation with a medium body. Decent porter but nothing earth shattering here. Oxidation and tartness seem quite out of place here.

12 ounce thanks to Elwood. Slightly thin porter with big carbonation. Some chocolate and roast. Not much smoke, and that is good.

Thanks to anggrec for this one. Very nice porter. Loaded with coffee in the aroma along with some chocolate. Nice malty start, slightly sweet with a good balance of hops.

Black with a thin tan head. Weak smoky chocolate nose. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, although a little thin at the same time. Solid smoky taste, mixed with a semi-sweet malty flavor that mixes with and fades to the slightest bitter hop ending.

12oz bottle via trade. Darkest brown in color with reddish hues and a lasting 1.5-finger tan head with good lacing. Very roasty aroma with some anise going on and some bitter espresso notes. The flavor is rather intense for the style and ABV, almost bordering on harsh. Huge roasty ashiness, bitter cocoa, burnt coffee beans, and dark fruits. It’s actually pretty good despite almost overwhelming the palate. Slick mouthfeel and even a bit tannic with medium-plus body and average carbonation. A pretty good porter, and avoided being the 4th drainpour out of 4 beers I’ve had tonight.

Pours a dark brown with thick tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is very nice with hints of chocolate. The taste comes across as too malty. The blend doesn’t seem to mix (not well balanced). It just seems like it’s missing something. Not terrible but too bland for my taste.
