Dark and full-bodied, this is our interpretation of the classic English Porter style. Made with nine varieties of malt and assertively hopped, our porter is packed with flavor. Strong coffee and chocolate tones create a special brew for those advancing on the path of fine beer appreciation.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 30, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2005 Extremely dark, jet black color. Heavy aroma and taste of darkly roasted coffee and chocolate. Flavor is dusty, earthy. Seems too thin to me, but still is quite good.

Black body with small, tan head. The aroma is chocolate, roast, molasses and coffee. The flavor is milk chocolate and burnt. Dry with soft carbonation and thin.

Pours dark brown with frothy tan head. Heavy malty aroma with hoppy notes. Balanced malty sweetness with a bit of hoppy finish makes for an overall amazing porter. Love the heavy dark cocoa nibs aroma and hint of coffee on the finish

Mild scent w/ little carbination.. hint of chocolate in the smell. This is a black beer, that holds little head, but has a full flavor strongly hinting of chocolate w/ a hint of hopps

(Tap) Pours a very dark brown color with a small beige head. Coffee aroma and taste, with some burnt caramel in the taste as well. A good and balanced porter, which really makes the beer. Mouthfeel is a little thin for the style, but still a good brew.

TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - JAN 7, 2007
On tap.
Pours a dark red-brown that allows a lot of light to pass through when held up to a light. A tan head with long retention sits atop the liquid all the way to the bottom but leaves surprisingly little lace on its way down. Aroma is dry-roast, earthy, grainy, and a very small hint of oddly placed mint. Strange. No mint in the flavor though, which is dry, almost burnt-carbon earthy grain up front, followed by a nice does of toffee and caramel. A tiny hint of dried fruit shows up as the beer warms. Disappointingly flat palate. A very drinkable porter.

Really rich toffee & caramel nose, some milkiness. Flavor is a hint of burnt malt, a whole bunch of chocolate & toffee and quite hoppy.

Full bodied, black porter, lots of roasted coffee aromas. Dark brown head smelled hoppy, and it had a very malty aroma. the finish was long and dry on the palate.
