One of the better porters that I’ve had. Due to the high rating and my hatred of European, especially English, beers I was expecting to be disappointed again. I was wrong. Pours out gorgeous thick black and with a big frothy light brown head. Aroma is a little chocolatey and a little "sam smithes"y. Texture is great. Really smooth and soft. Flavor is a bit smoky, slight chocolate, and mildly bitter. Not as much mocha or chocolate as wanted but everything is well balanced. A finely made porter. I could dig drinking this in a pub but i still like more "aggressive" porter like Gonzo or Stone. Probably one of the cheapest 4.0+ beers, too, at $3 a for a 17oz bottle. Highly recommended.

A good porter. Dark and roasty as it should be. To me, a good porter should become more smooth as it warms, and this does exactly that. Was it the best porter I’ve ever had though? Probably not.

This beer is delicious...pours a dark brown with a bit of deep red...slight fizzy head. The aroma is of rich chocolare. Taste is light with a perfect chocolate and coffee balance. Mouthfeel is somewhat heavy and dry. I’ll be keeping an eye out for this one for a long time to come.

pours a lovely deep dark colorless color with only a hint of foam. It is one of the most perfect mixes of sweet and dry. A runner up for my every day beer!

Le mélange de malt dans cette porter est assé présant et c’est un bon mélange. Riche, crèmeuse et délicieuse.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with hints of mahogany and red in the color. Lightened coffee colored head. Smells very sweet and ripe like plums or with a slight chocolate smell. Tastes chocolatey and rich with coffee flavors becoming more pronounced in the finish. Not too carbonated, nice full body. This stuff is great!

Bottle from the Blind Pig, Champaign. Given the general decline of Blind Pig’s tap list, I’m forced to go with their bottle options. A decided note of plum and chocolate on the nose. Mouthfeel is fairly lush and creamy, and the 5.4 ABV is rather refreshing and makes the beer highly drinkable. Notes of semi-sweet chocolate, prune, and a hint of Jolly Rancher like sweetness. The chocolate overwhelms everything else; I really don’t get too much coffee notes here. Solid and worthy of some esteem, although perhaps not 4.08 esteem.

on tap at BierStube in Moline. a nice surprise to finally get to try this one and best of all it was on tap! rich chocolate aroma greets the nose and the pour was a dark brown with a seemingly ruby edge. flavors were well balanced chocolate and a bit of a coffee finish. low carbonation. great beer!

Very dark brown pretty much black pour, thin head that stayed but stayed very very thin. Aroma was of coffee bigtime. First sip it was like a chilled coffee, with very dark chocolate, but not very sweet at all. Tougher than some stouts I’ve had. A little on the bitter side also.

"Pour a dark dark brown, with a medium head. Wow the aroma was strong coffee with a little chocolate. Taste of malts cocoa and coffee, little sweet. Full body with a perfect finish. "
