decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Brown/black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is roasted malt and very chocolate, with a hinto sour. Taste starts as sweet almost hershey’s chocolate, then goes to a dry, a smooth warmth, and then a bitter combination of hops and malt. Medium/full bodied with just a tad of fizziness. This beer is a tick from being most ex ellent.

HonkeyBra (3518) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Sampled at DLD 2011. Actually, the person in front of me in line offered me a sip of this excellent brew. Aroma of chocolate, roast, lactose sugar, mild alcohol. There are some note of coffee, leafy hops and vanilla as well. Flavor is smooth, nice chocolate and roast in the forefront. Vanilla, and a mild bitter finish comes out towards the end. Very good. Nice mouthfeel, good carbonation. Finishes dry and roast. Pretty cool beer to try.

CanIHave4Beers (3351) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Enormous thanks to Durhambeer for this bottle! The beer pours a deep ruby color when held up to the light, generally it looks a dark brown (almost black). The head is big and leaves some lace on the glass. The flavor is very roasty and really pretty pleasantly bitter both in a roasty coffee sort of way and a hoppy way. The hops are far more mellow than the roasty bitterness thought. The beer is really pretty dry all around Really comes across like an excellent porter, the strength & hop character suggests an imperial porter, the clean character and the mild smokiness suggest that this is akin to a Baltic Porter. It’s really some sort of magical blend of all three porter styles.

msante79 (2211) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Bottle thanks to secret santa. Pours dark brown to almost black with big tan head. Aromas of dark rotated malts, chocolate, molasses, and some dark fruit. Flavor is mostly dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, and molasses with ash, dark fruits, and some earth mixed in as well. Finishes dry and roasty Pretty solid porter and enjoyable brew.

Butters (3846) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Sampled at Rob and Jef’s sigep bbq 2011 courtesy of Todd. Beautiful clear chestnut pour with brown highlights and ring of tan head. Notes of cocoa, roast, chocolate, dark earthiness. Bitter tobacco finish. It was certainly good, but not worth the $15 pricetag.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 23, 2011
bottle at dak’s 9/5/10. walnuty stained brown color with some reddish hints at the edges. a soft tan head lasts as a film. roasty ashy nose also has notes of chocolate, toasted nuts and sark dried fruit. the flavor is like roast and ash meet vanilla creams. bitter cocoa finish. crisp light-medium body. a little too easy drinking... 7/4/8/3/16

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle from the kantastic Pantanap. Pours with generous head. Below sits a super dark, deep, yet shiny mahogany-like color. Dessertish and nutty aromas lift from the glass, maybe a touch of must, coffee, whipped cream, hazelnuts, and a touch of roasted malt around the edges. Flavors again have a dessertish quality and a nutty character, like hazelnuts, with some creamy vibes going on as well. Its sweet to a point, but it doesn’t come across as overly sweet as the nutty qualities of the malts, the creaminess of the body, and the touch of hop bitterness in the finish make it all come together quite nicely. Very nice beer that I would probably drink a shit load of if it were easily attainable...which it isn’t...at least not for me... fml.

Bottle, thanks to Greg. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, some roast, coffee. Taste is sweet toffee, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and more sweet malt with a bitter finish, finishing slightly bitter. Good stuff.
