Bottle from Justin in trade. Aroma and flavor is light coffee. Not a whole bunch to say about this one, other than the flavor soured late. Fair beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2012
Dark brown color with thin off-white lacing. Good amount of chocolate and nuts on the nose. The palate surprises with a slight smokey feel as well as a strong coffee note. Overall Interesting.

22oz bottle, received in trade from ASUBeer. Thanks! Pours a dark brown color with a huge, off white head. Aroma is malty, chocolate, maybe a little fruity, sweet cherry. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, roasty, with a sweet, Roasty finish. Very tasty.

Thanks to PaulUnwin for sharing this one! Cheers, Paul! Pours a porter brown with an off-tan head. Nose is earthy unsweet chocolate, some hops, and some espresso. Flavor is similar- all manner of unsweet dark porter flavors- espresso, earth, and unsweet chocolate. Medium in body and noteworthy overall.

brokensail (12362) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 14, 2012
A very dark brown colored beer with a khaki colored head. The aroma is quite roasty with a little bit of toffee and chocolate. There is a little bit of toasted malt and perhaps a hint of coffee. A little light in the flavor department; it’s sort of watery. There is a definite bitterness to it, however. Still, some roasted malt and a light toffee and chocolate sweetness to it. A bit of a let down.

IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Pint from Flying Saucer Nashville. Pours a thick black syrup with a tan head and lacing all over the glass. Initial taste was extremely satisfying with enormous tones of dark chocolate and sweet malt. This Porter almost is too sweet would like a bit more smokiness but still a solid Porter!

22 ounce bomber that poured a dark brown color with aromas of chocolate, toffe, caramel and light floral hops. Flavor is much the same, and lighter on the palate then I expected.
