12oz bottle from Reg, Thanks! Pours a dark reddish brown, hardly any head. Roasted coffee and malt aromas. Give this some time and the chocolate starts to show up in the nose. Nice mix of coffees and bittersweet chocolate. Hops hold back sweetness all the way into the finish. One of the better nonflavored Porters.

Beerowulf (73) - , Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pours a dark brown with very slight head. Roasty malts and coffee and more bitterness than chocolate taste. The bitterness lingers nicely. A very sessionable porter and very deserving of your time.

Well done for the style. Pours deep brown / red with an off white head. Aroma is mostly smoke and tobacco. Smooth in mouth with a slightly bitter / smoky finish.

illidurit (2052) - Petaluma, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle courtesy Cory. Pours deep ruby brown with a lasting light-tan head. Aroma is heavy on graham crackers and chocolate malt balls. Flavor is a little vegetal while cold but it improves with warmth as notes of anise, off-brand dark chocolate, and coffee beans emerge.

doubelknv3 (942) - Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Black, off-white, tan head. Frothy, but not a strong head retention, and mild lacing. Dark roast, sweet malt notes, and licorice aroma. Full bodied, roast malt dominated with buttering notes. Decent balance, tongue tingler, dry finish with mild bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1389) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 3, 2013
12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Stamped enjoy by 22 Sept. 2013. Pour is clear, dark, reddish-brown with a tan head that soon reduces to a thin top coat but leaves good lacing. Aroma: sweet and dark roasted malts with a hint of hops. Flavor: rather subtle hop presence for style despite the brewer’s claim of "a bold hop presence". Roasty flavor with a hints of bittersweet chocolate, coffee and smoke. Strong finish. Feel: medium body with well chosen low carbonation.

Some bitterness to the aftertaste that I don’t quite like. I can taste a richness that I like too, but that bitterness is there.
