Pours a dark black with tan head. A strong cocoa and light coffee aroma. A nice mix of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. A good mix of sweet and dry, but not as creamy as I expected. Still, very delicious!

HourGlass13 (235) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pours a dark rdish brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is cocoa powder and very light roast. Flavor is robust for a porter, with some cocoa powder and roasted malt. A well done porter. Very balanced and smooth, highly recommended.

Heavily roasted coffee, dark chocolate, toasted malts and milk. Great body and a creamy feel without being too heavy.

Matt_Foran (90) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Very good porter, very traditional in color, aroma and color. Hints of chocolate, vanilla and roasted malts. Finished with a nice smokiness, with hints of chocolate. One of the best porters I have had.

MrMeadMan (43) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 4, 2015
A really good porter, nice dark color though not totally opaque. Roasty malty flavor with nice smoothness. I could stand a little more sweetness to round it out.

A great porter. Full bodied and easy to drink. Dark color and strong chewy finish.

This was really nice. Great chocolate and coffee flavors while also being a bit hoppy.

SG111 (439) - New York, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottled. Pours pitch black with pillowy tan head into a pilsner glass (not my choice). Aroma is lots of chocolate and coffee. Really nice and full actually. Taste is coffee bitterness up front with a chocolate sweetness in the middle of the mouth and a pleasant coffee bitterness finish. Not as weak in the body as many porters but not as robust as some stouts. Overall, a much better Porter than I remember.

This is one of my all time favorite beers. Lots of chocolate and coffee with a perfect balance of sweet and bitter. I just wish I could get it locally.
