Complex, roasty aroma with a bittersweet, chocolate-coffee taste and a bold hop presence.

Dark brown pour, with a small tan head. Not quite opaque, but approaching it. Roasty coffee/malt aroma. Flavor is surprisingly chocolaty, with a very coffee dominate finish. Some English hops are present in the finish, but aren’t overpowering, even at the 60 IBUs they claim. Fairly dry finish. Good mouthfeel -- creamy and thick compared to most other porters I’ve had.

Coffee and chocolate on the nose and in the mouth. A good porter.... lacked a little depth for my liking.

Pours dark brown with an amber tint and a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with tobacco, molasses and chocolate. Flavor starts with a sweet caramel malt, followed with roasted malt and chocolate finishing with coffee and smokiness. Really nice beer. Thanks Maxbier for this one!

Great porter, nothing experimental about it, just the right amounts of coffee/chocolate/toast taste. Probably the only good thing about Cleveland.

Bitter at the start. Drank from a bottle. Perfect notes of chocolate and coffee with a bit of sweet in the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep cola appearance with a thin tan head. Roasted yet sweet aromas are softer and more appealing than a stout. Some hops begin to come out in the flavor and provide a contrasting bitter undertone. Thick and soupy mouthfeel is delicious in a darker beer. Great stuff!

I’ve recently heard about this beer in the local paper so while visiting the Blue Dog I picked one up. Well, this beer pours with a great tan head, dark brown in color. When held up to a light I can barely see through it. Good head rentention, very good actually and excellent lacing. Rich malts provide a complex aroma. I can pick out cofee and espresso and chocolate from the roasted malts. This porter is smooth and rich in flavor, what you smell is what you get baby. Coffee and espresso up front with a nice chocolate finish. A good cooking beer for stews and chili. Drink well my friends

Bottle. Taste- robust is a good word for this. Chocolatey, coffee and hard water. Prominently hopped. Great porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First time drinking and it lives up to the hype. Hints of cocoa and chocolate. Very easy drinking...makes me wish I had bought a 6pk instead of a single bottle!

I had this on tap at the Brickhouse in Davidson, NC. It is very dark, almost black. There is some lacing on the glass. It has a roasted malt aroma with chocolate and coffee notes. It has a rich flavor with are roasted on the palate with chocolate. It is not bitter, very smooth on the finish.
