Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Excellent porter that tastes remarkably similar to DFH Chicory Stout. Dark and roasted, this has a smooth yet complex roast complex of chicory, burnt coffee, dry chocolate malt. Very good beer.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Bottle. Pours opaque brown black, off white head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel, malt, leather, tobacco. Pretty complex and lovely scent; can they make this into a perfume? Flavor is meaty, smoky, slightly oily, well balanced. A damn good, full bodied porter.

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

zizzybalubba (1608) - Raleigh, 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.
