mcberko (6745) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a dark brown with an amber tinge and a medium tan head. Nose is soft, with notes of cocoa powder and very light roast. Flavour is robust for a porter, with notes of dry cocoa powder and rather robust roasted malt. Not quite at stout level body, but quite robust nonetheless. This is pretty much everything you could ask for in a porter. Highly drinkable, highly flavourful, and balanced. Excellent stuff.

UrbanCaveman (23) - Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2014
12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass at 50 degrees F. A: Pours a deep, dark brown, but clear enough to see through. What little head forms is thin and quickly dissipates, though the beer leaves nice lacing on the glass for a moment ere it slides back into the liquid. S: Slightly smoky dark roasted coffee and 90%+ dark chocolate riding a charred grain malt aroma, with some hints of sweetness around the edges. T: Oh, that’s malty. Dark, charred roasted grain, deliciously bitter, with the black roasted coffee and extra-dark chocolate notes clearly present. There are some hints of campfire smoke and cherry wood, or at least the flavor I get off of meat smoked over cherry wood. The finish is a deeply satisfying bitter roasted grain. M: While rich, the mouthfeel is surprisingly light, given the nose and flavor profile. It manages to feel light and drinkable, without being too watery. O: This is just a good, solid porter. Whenever I meet someone who doesn’t yet know what a porter is, I introduce them to the style with this beer. It generally changes expectations as to what a porter should be.

Dark dark black pour. Bitter sweet chocolate and coffee that has bolf hops and gentle carbonation with fresh light finish. After bitter that lingers perfectly!

jbruner (2362) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a deep blackish brown from the bottle with thin tan head. Aroma is weak, soy and chocolate with slight roast. Taste is way more toward the roast and chocolate with a nice deep soy back end. Solid porter.
