Draft sample @Syracuse location. Dark brown with thick head even in the sample glass. Nose is roast, hint of coffee and chocolate. Really nice roasted malts with the afore mentioned chocolate and coffee hints, finally a really nice brew at this place.

Serving type: on-tap Appearance- Dark Brown with a nice tan head Aroma- Malt, Chocolate and Coffee T/P - – Very strong coffee flavor almost like drinking an iced cappuccino. Very nice mouths feel no strong after taste. Overall- Very drinkable, not the best dark beer they have, that would have to go to the winter bock, but defiantly worth a try and would not pass one up if it was offered to me. It is one of the better beers that the brew, just not the best one

Smells like coffee, tastes like coffee and caramel. This is a really good porter, though they label it a lager. In any case, it has a nice finish and a full body without the bitterness that often comes with a coffee-style beer. Finish the night with this for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at brewpub. Pours dark clear brown with a large tan head that lingers somewhat. Malty aroma and flavor, hints of coffee and bitter chocolate as well. Medium body and pleasant carbonation. Went well with the steak I had for dinner, but I wouldn’t to out of my way for this one.
