BVery (8691) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle. Nice dark brown pour with a good tan head that diminished fairly quickly. Initial aroma was roasty chocolate, but suddenly that disappeared and was replaced by a sour note. Palate is thin - even for the style. Taste is watery, slightly roasty, not offensive but pretty bland.

djd07 (6619) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with ruby hue and small off white head. Roasted malt aroma and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a rich malt and metallic finish. Not too much going on with this one.

Drake (11172) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s Madison West. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin head. Poor head retention. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, faint hops and a bit of a smoky note. The taste is chocolate, caramel, nutty notes, faint smoke and hops. Thin-medium bodied. Nice.

Onslow (1301) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Dark brew with thin off white head. Aroma of malt / toasted malt. Taste is good - a nice blend of sweet malts and roasted malts with a little sour hops emerging in the finish. Palate is satisfying but light for the style. Not the most complex porter in the world but a worthy one.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 24, 2011
12oz bottle: Pours a clear a barely transparent dark mahogany with a thin, spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a toasty, nutty, light caramel malty nose with a touch of English hops. Starts with average fullness and light malty sweetness with some nutty flavor and lingering dark chocolate and doughiness in the finish. Pretty smooth and very drinkable.

Are you kidding me? This was an exceptional Porter. One of the very best I have ever had. No kidding, drink it now!

Ughsmash (7428) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Bottled. Poured cola brown with a nice initial dark tan head.. settled down fairly quickly. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and milk chocolate notes with slightly buttery character.. really quite pleasant. The flavor found about the same stuff.. milkier chocolates, vanilla, and some rolled oats at the core, with light, dry, earthy bitterness and residual sugars around.. very dry on the finish, carrying through mostly milky chocolates.. became muddled as it warmed up. Light-medium bodied and roasty on the palate.. this started out better than it finished.

Light chocholate into subdued malts. Not the best porter, was hoping for something better, but this wasn’t bad really.

Scubatrip (605) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, pours a clear red with an ok head. Taste is thin and malty, not a porter in my book. The bartender swore it was, in fact, the porter that he gave me. Not a bad beer, just not a porter.

A lot sweeter than I was thinking for a porter but it was still very enjoyable. Pours a dark black color with an tan head. Aroma nuts, malts, caramel and the flavor is very sweet, maybe a little too much, but still enjoyable.
