Dark brown with a lasting tan head. Aroma of chocolate, a little caramel and a dried fruit note. Sweetish roasted flavour with dark chocolate, some licorice, dried fruit and a touch of dark berries

A phenomenal example of style, pours a dark brown, nearly black and goes down easily.

elcig (37) - Oliver Springs, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2012
From a growler pours a lovely deep, dark, blackish-brown with a nice tan head. Aroma isn’t very prevalent at all, just a slight bit of roasted malt. Flavor is exceptional with a very smoky quality complimenting the flavors of malt and chocolate. Very rich and substantial mouthfeel with a bit of chewiness that works perfectly. Will definitely refill in the future.

Very consistent and a new favorite. Good dark color with little transparency. Good blend of Flavors with nothing too over bearing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft and ages on Jim beam from busy bee. Excellent Jim beam aroma. Too cold though. Very tasty. Nice sweetness to it with not over the top. I think I may do my next beer with some Jim beam oak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great porter...full flavored and good mouthfeel but light and drinkable. Lots of chocolate and roastyness. Refreshing yet full of flavor. Slightly sweet, very satisfying.

Foxbush (1817) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 22 oz Bomber This was purchased at Tom Leonards Farm Market in Western Henrico. The porter pours a deep black with tan head that quickly dissipated. You immediately detect roasted malt and a burnt toast. The medium body porter has average carbonation. This is a nice porter, it settles down and the finish is smooth with some burnt malt in in the top of your mouth. Had another at Vermillon in Alexandria, VA. Nice porter!

Draft. Deep brown body with a tan head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, molasses and cola. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture and moderate carbonation. Taste of bittersweet chocolate and coffee with a hint of grapefruit bitterness. It’s noticeably thin, but its strength is in its balance between sweet and bitter and the nice flavors the balance produces.
