tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours a really dark brown with a little red around the edges and a small tan head. Lots of milk chocolate on the nose, nice coffee and toasted malt, a slight nuttiness and surprisingly hoppy. Nice hoppy nuttiness up front on the taste, strong coffee note, light chocolatey taste and slightly sweet toasted malt. Delicious, though I still think Founders might have done a better job.

pours nearly black with a medium tan head. Rich aroma of roasted malt. creamy mouth feel with rich dark malt flavor. Black coffee notes creep in. Bittersweet linger. Very good!

Zymurgeist2 (1695) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Draught at Jet Rock Bar and Grill in Terminal B of PHL. The highlight of a flight of 8 beers during a layover. Fantastic chocolate aroma with slight roast. Brown with light brown head that is sustained. Lovely all around.

Weevo (138) - Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Bottle, have had this a couple times and really like it. Pours dark brown with thin tan head, coffee aroma follows through to taste with a little bit of chocolate and a slight bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kathouse (1525) - Nevada, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Deep garnet color with a persistent head. Chocolate malt aroma with slight caramel. A good bodied beer full of malt flavor. Very drinkable.

seymour (1841) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 2, 2016
Shared from a brown bottle into sampler glasses, it poured a near-opaque dark brown colour with moderate off-white foam and lace. Malty, grainy, caramelly, toasty, roasty, nutty, strong dark stone fruit esters. Grassy and citrusy hops. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation, delicious balanced aftertastes. Extremely tasty and moreish, an excellent Americanized porter.

One of the best porters Iíve tried. Rich dark malt aromas and flavors, hops in the background, and a finish that is quite long.

zubblwump (36) - Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2016
Nice color, decent head that sticks around. Inviting, roasty aroma, with a hint of hops. Surprisingly bitter taste, though. Dang, I was really hoping to like this one, but the bitterness was just too much for me.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 Bottle. Average carbonation. Prominent coffee aroma and flavor. Weak chocolate and malt flavors. Slightly sweet, slightly bitter finish. Not as flavorful as the best of the porters, but still very good overall.

smroush (196) - Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Very dark brown, nearly black, beer with a light tan, sparse head. Aromas of roasted coffee and chocolate. Hops provide a generalized bitterness. Medium sweetness and moderate bitterness. Medium to somewhat full body; oily/creamy texture; average carbonation; finish is long with coffee and chocolate. Overall a pretty good Porter; I like the chocolate and coffee flavors though itís not especially complex.
