Bottled...not much head, a bit too carbonated for me, but that aside it has a good smoky taste.

First impressions: rather light for a porter, not as complex as hoped for. However, as it warms a bit and I keep sipping, it's flavors grow, but not to where I'd expect from a 7 malt beer. I detect hints of coffee, a little chocolate, and very subtle smoke on the tongue but surprisingly not on the nose. Overall, a decent porter but less than I'd hoped for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice black color, but has no lacing or head retention. I expected it to smell more of chocolate and burnt coffee, but those are barely present. It is more bitter than most porters I have had. Reminds me more of a black ipa than a porter.

This is an OK porter....slightly above average but nothing really special here. There’s some roasty coffee and chocolate flavors, though the texture and balance could be a little better. Evolution just made it down here to FL. My first sample from them, so I’ll give one of their other styles a try.

Weak aroma (could be the glass). Deep coffee color, clear. Hints of coffee and chocolate. Hop bitterness shows up at the end and lingers a bit long.

Nice malt, coffee, a hint of chocolate and smoke upon the first taste. The appearance is nice and dark for a porter. It has a nice dry lingering finish.

zizzybalubba (1587) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark brown cola-like pour. Roasted malt aroma of chocolate, espresso, and light smoke. Taste features roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and faint bitter charred malt with just a touch of floral hops on the finish. Medium bodied. This is nicely done porter.
