22 oz bomber. The pour is a dark dark brown/black with a nice garnet or ruby note around the edges with a nice light tan head and some minimal lacing. The aroma is nicely balanced with a good roast and hop profile. There is some light coffee and a touch of chocolate. The flavor is much of the same. I love the roasted malt in the flavor. There is a light addition from the cocoa, but it's so balanced. The mouthfeel is a thin, with a light carbonation. The aftertaste is roasty, and lingers nicely ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

American Craft Beer Week! Firestone Tap Takeover at the Common Table. Poured a dark brown with a thin khaki top. Taste of chocolate, slight roast and malty. Medium carbonation, medium-thick body.

Aroma and flavor full of roasty malt, chocolate, and significant emergent vanilla, but nicely balanced with aromatic hopping, which is floral and bitter yet smooth citrus. The fine balance makes the brew easy on the palate, in spite of being so flavorful. Very nicely done.

Excellent from the pour. Dark brew with a light head. Surprisingly light (doesn’t leave you bloated) for being so dark. Sweet smooth taste with a hint of coffee. Moderate APV so that first sip doesn’t sting like some. A very tasty porter.

A classic British porter - nothing too crazy, very moderate ABV. The malt backbone has roasted, toasted, and toffee flavors. A little on the sweet side. Tasty and complex.

Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla and roasted. Flavor is roasted in the end with a more present coffee flavor in the begining and somewhat chocolate. A favorite one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a great dark brown color with a tremendous amount of tan foam. Smells very light and malty, not a lot of hops going on in the aroma. Taste is also light. Coffee with cream, malt and a bit of spice at the end. Great palate, velvety and rich with a good aftertaste. Very drinkable but a bit basic. Not what I have come to expect from FW.
